Matthew ‘Mizkif’ Rinaudo decided to bring his stream into the bath with him, but with thousands of dollars of computer equipment laying around, it was only a matter of time until something fell into the water with him.

It’s something everyone is taught from a young age — electronics and water don’t mix. However, that didn’t stop Mizkif from trying to put on a show for his viewers while giving himself a bath on stream.

As part of a sponsored stream with Dr. Squatch Soap Co, Mizkif was told to “sit in a bath for 90 minutes,” and that’s exactly what he did. “I’m going to sit here in a tub, playing with their soap — a nice, calm, relaxing stream.”

Mizkif spent an hour in the bathtub chatting with his viewers, but it wasn’t without its mishaps.

With helpers running around to help set up the stream, which was filmed on a laptop camera beaming back to his computer at home in a discord call, Mizkif eventually hopped into the bath, albeit with board shorts on.

“Alright let’s put some soap in the water,” he said. “Slick, can you play some marbles for the boys?” He even called out the helper, asking his chat to give him some appreciation, just before disaster struck.

“Let’s give a big round of applause for crazy Slick out there—” with the audio cutting out briefly as the microphone unplugged from the cable hanging right above his bath. Mizkif tried to catch it mid air but his reactions failed him, with the expensive piece of equipment dropping right into the water.

The stream audio swapped from the hanging bathtub microphone to the in-built laptop one, giving viewers a chance to hear the aftermath as it happened. Mizkif was left in shock over what had just happened, with Slick walking into the room with the only appropriate reaction — “oh no, dude.”

“Sh*t, like I’m sorry,” Mizkif said after composing himself. “Is this your mic? F**k dude.” Slick hit back with a reply about how the microphone cost him $1,000, making the bathing streamer look a bit more frantically for a solution.

“Is it gonna work, should I try it? Do you think it’s completely broken? Do you think if maybe we put it in rice?”

Mizkif had no words after dropping the microphone in the bathtub.

Eventually Mizkif put the microphone aside once he learned the laptop microphone had kicked in, entering a zen state to put the embarrassing moment well out of his mind.

After the peculiar bath stream. fans looking to get a dose of Mizkif will have to wait a few days. The streamer announced that he “will be gone for nine days,” and while he’s going to miss his stream, he also said that he’s “gonna have a lot of fun” taking a break.

After an onslaught of hateful comments, David Dobrik has responded to the backlash he faced for claiming that he “hates nature” on his Views podcast with Jason Nash.

As a huge YouTuber known for massive giveaways and wholesome content, Dobrik’s comments, if at all negative, can cause a stir among his fans. In the episode in question, Dobrik explains at length why he “hates nature,” and how outdoor activities really don’t do it for him.

“I cannot describe to you how much I f***ing hate nature,” Dobrik said. “I never knew I could be so angry at something. I was hiking in the mountains, and everybody I saw, I was just getting angry at. I was like, ‘Why are you here?’ I was so mad!”

“It feels so wrong because everybody loves nature,” he continued. “…what is so cool about something that’s been there… for millions of years! What is so cool about that? …it feels like everything I’ve worked for has been erased. I’m stuck with the dirt and the grass and the leaves.”

Angry commenters described Dobrik as “close-minded”

Angry commenters had a lot to say about his opinions on the world around him and on his attitude about something as mundane as nature.

“I don’t justify it, but now I understand the hate that you get for being so closed-minded and kind of a d**k to your friends or the planet,” one person wrote. “I know that you have done great things like charities and donations. But DUDE, grow up a bit, you live in a bubble.”

But in the latest episode of Views with fellow YouTuber Jason Nash, they discussed the backlash Dobrik faced and read out Dexerto’s article on the subject.

Dobrik explained that fans misunderstood his intentions: “I said I didn’t like nature and by this, I didn’t mean that I don’t care about the ecosystem where I think you shouldn’t recycle and I think you should litter. It was like I just literally do not care for walks.”

“I wasn’t joking about the actual nature but I was kind of like you guys are gonna really hate me for this. I didn’t think people would actually get mad and people are pissed.”

Since the latest episode has aired, angry commenters are nowhere to be seen. It seems that the adamant defenders of nature walks have been appeased.
