The NELK Boys have become infamous for their high-risk, crossing-the-line pranks in the YouTube space, but their latest trip to Ibiza may have taken them one step too far as a fan got sent to the hospital.

The NELK Boys channel was first started by Kyle Forgeard, doing small skits with his friends. This evolved when Jesse Sebastiani joined him, straight from an MTV show, and they started playing pranks on residents in their home city.

During a recent tour of Europe, the Canadian duo announced that they would be flying out two fans and a guest each to Ibiza to party with them and live the NELK life. You can imagine the kind of carnage that ensued.

NelkFilmz/TwitterNELK have picked up over 3.6 million subscribers and nearly 500m channel views.

However, one of the fans that were flown out got way more than they bargained for, as they were hospitalized on their very first night on the Spanish party island after a few too many drinks.

Shortly after chugging three Coronas – a beer that has become synonymous with NELK Boys – the video skips to the fan saying “I’m breaking a glass bottle with my head,” before smashing one of the empty bottles into his temple.

He immediately started bleeding from his head and his hand, before getting wrapped up and heading straight to the hospital to get multiple stitches.

Although it seemed pretty bad at first, the fan managed to pull through and seemed fine come morning, if not a little banged up. He got up and made a speech at their first dinner together, thanking the NELK Boys for everything they have done for him and telling them how much he appreciates the opportunity.

This isn’t the first time the NELK Boys have found themselves in trouble. Before heading out on their European tour, the plan was to go to Russia – but they were denied entry into the country due to their work on YouTube.

They also saw their fan meetup in Dublin get shut down by police after authorities caught wind of the kind of content they create and saw the huge crowds forming around the city’s Phoenix Park.

After months of back-and-forth, Jake Paul and Nate Robinson are finally stepping into the squared circle for their highly-anticipated boxing matchup. Here’s what you need to know. 

YouTubers strapping on boxing gloves and squaring up with one another was a trend kicked off by KSI and Joe Weller back in 2018. Since then, the concept has exploded – including KSI forging rivalries with the Paul brothers and fighting Logan Paul in a professional bout in Los Angeles. 

Typically, it has been all about a YouTuber fighting another content creator, but Jake Paul’s next fight is a little different. He’s fighting former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout – which is sure to be a spectacle itself. So, here’s what you need to know.

Paul and Robinson have been going back-and-forth for months, with their fight being delayed previously.

What time is Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson?

Despite the attention the YouTuber brings, the Paul vs Robinson bout isn’t the main event of the evening, so it’s hard to nail down an exact start time. 

Some reports have suggested that the pair should make their ring walks at around 4 am GMT on Sunday, November 29. In the US, that’ll still be Saturday, November 28 at 8 pm PST/11 pm EST, given that the main event is due to start an hour later at 9 pm PST. 

Of course, this could change given the results of the previous fights, so if you don’t want to miss a moment of it, you’ll just have to tune in from the start
