A Logan Paul fan was left close to tears in the gym after his hero randomly surprised him with a $10,000 gift, in an emotional, Dobrik-esque moment in his latest vlog.

Giving away money and gifts isn’t a new concept by any means, but saw a surge in popularity on YouTube with the likes of MrBeast and David Dobrik, who enjoyed a huge uptick in subscribers and views when they started giving away ludicrous gifts or cash amounts.

Now, Logan Paul has joined in on the action, giving away $10,000 out of his own pocket to an unsuspecting fan.

Logan Paul’s Maverick Club gives away $10k to one lucky member each month.

Each month, Logan Paul gives away $10,000 to a random member of the Maverick Club – his exclusive subscription-based group that get access to exclusive content that won’t be seen by YouTube, merchandise, discounts and, obviously, giveaways.

While Maverick Club members are spread across the world – and still tucked away at home thanks to the ongoing global health crisis – Paul usually wouldn’t be able to surprise his fans in person, but he had the opportunity here and it paid off.

Having found the gym that his fan Jesus frequents, Logan decided to go on a hunt for him, eventually finding him after an “anonymous tip-off.”

After pretending that they had just met by coincidence, Paul finally revealed the real reason that he was there.

“I’ve got to be honest with you,” he told Jesus. “This entire thing is a setup. I knew you were working out here and I came to tell you that you’re the winner of this month’s $10,000 giveaway.”

Still in complete disbelief, he have his favorite YouTuber a warm embrace, and Jesus said that he’s “trying to hold back tears” while wiping his eyes. The extra cash was obviously huge for him – especially considering he had just lost his job due to the health crisis.

Both Jesus and Logan look delighted with what went down, and you can see how much it meant to both of them – and that might just be the best Maverick Club advert Logan Paul could ever do.

Twitch streamer confronts DoorDash driver after console war trash talk

Console wars are nothing new to video game enthusiasts. From schoolyard debates to forum threads 500 pages deep, console loyalists have fought tooth and nail since the dawn of time. Now, the battleground has shifted with even DoorDash drivers getting in on the action against customers.

During a Twitch broadcast, streamer Jameskii was playing Minecraft while waiting for DoorDash to deliver his order. Suddenly, he received a text message on his phone.

“Hold on, is my drink here?” he wondered as he grabbed his mobile device. “Oh my God! Oh my God!”

As the streamer stared down at his phone, he could hardly contain his disbelief at the message he received from the driver.

“My food delivery guy just messaged me ‘Xbox is trash as f**k,” he laughed. “I’m not kidding. My f**king DoorDash just messaged me. It says, ‘Hello, DoorDash has arrived with your order’ and the next message is ‘Xbox is trash as f**k.’”

As it turns out, the driver actually tried to call the streamer, but when Jameskii didn’t pick up, he felt the need to trash talk Xbox.

Despite all this confusion and the out of context attack on Microsoft’s console, Jameskii wondered if he should call the driver back.

“Say yeah, PlayStation is better, woo!” his friend suggested as the streamer began to redial the number.

Eventually, someone on the other end picked up. “Alright, what did you say about Xbox?” Jameskii asked point-blank.

After a few moments of silence, the driver doubled down on his earlier comment and shouted, “F**k Xbox!”

The remark had the streamer in stitches and made him burst out laughing at the absurdity of the whole situation.

While console wars have a long history dating beyond even the 90s when Nintendo and Sega duked it out, it’s unlikely that the phenomenon ever reached a point where delivery drivers partake. It just goes to show that we’re living in a strange timeline.
