Markiplier and Crank’s plan to “flex on Mother Nature” with an indoor tornado didn’t exactly work as they wanted as the pair were left to go back to the drawing board and figure out what to do next.

Markipiler and Crank are two of YouTuber’s most popular creators, racking up a combined 26 million subscribers. While they’ve been focusing on their own channels, the pair have begun collaborating on a separate project – Unus Annus.

The channel name is Latin and translates into ‘one year,’ which is exactly when the pair have claimed they will delete it. Though, in the meantime, they’ve been uploading videos on a daily basis – tackling everything from creating a DIY bungee jump, being tased, and even eating fire. 

YouTube: MarkiplierMarkiplier has been one of YouTube’s most successful creators – branching out into the mainstream.

In their February 8 upload, the pair attempted to “flex on Mother Nature” by creating an indoor tornado. Seeing as neither of them can actually control the weather, they were attempting to create the phenomenon using dry ice, buckets of water, and a few powerful fans. 

The pair kicked things off by testing the waters with a few small drops of dry ice, which seemed to work at first as they created a small vertical funnel – though it didn’t quite resemble a powerful tornado.

In a bid to expand on that small success, they attempted to speed things up by dropping more and more dry ice into hot water. However, that didn’t quite work – leaving the YouTubers with more smoke on the floor than above them, as they had planned.

Despite the early success of the smaller funnel, the pair failed in their quest to create something that they could claim to be an actual indoor tornado.

However, they did note that they were going back to the drawing board. “I think [the way it worked] was because the hot water with the little bit was naturally rising but our intent to overdo everything killed it,” said Markiplier as they reviewed what had happened.

Though they admitted defeat this time around, the pair did hint at the possibility of revisiting the experiment at a later date.

Whether or not they will do so remains to be seen but, as of now, their attempt to “flex” on Mother Nature didn’t exactly go down a storm.

Jake Paul has already set his sights on new boxing opponents such as Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis and even his brother Logan Paul, after his impressive second round K.O. victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson.

Following the highly anticipated Tyson vs Jones Jr boxing card on November 28, YouTube star Jake Paul came away from the night as one of the biggest winners after his win over Nate Robinson went viral.

The Calabasas-based content creator put on a strong performance in the co-main event with a knockout in the second round, moving to a 2-0 record as a professional boxer, and immediately began issuing challenges for his next bout.

Conor McGregor was one of the fighters Jake Paul challenged to a boxing fight.

During the post-fight interview, Jake Paul revealed that he would soon be looking to take a step up in competition after his time off, even challenging some of the biggest MMA stars in the world.

He explained that he would be interested in taking on Conor McGregor, a two-division UFC champion, as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and undefeated Bellator fighter, Dillon Danis, who he has had an ongoing feud with.

“I’m taking this seriously,” Paul explained, predicting KO victories over both athletes, “There’s a long list of opponents that I want. Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out.”

While many viewers claimed it could be too soon for Jake to take on life-long fighters, he also shared a list of other content creators he’d like to meet in the ring, including his brother Logan Paul and YouTube rival KSI.

“There’s my brother, there’s KSI on the line, Austin McBroom.” he admitted, “I want to be in this sport a long time. I’m in love with it, so why not.”

KSI was quick to respond to the challenge, claiming that he was not impressed with Jake’s performance on the night, even though he had earned multiple knockdowns during the bout.

Whether he will get to fight any of these stars in the coming months remains unclear, but he has certainly generated a lot of hype around his name following his impressive win.
