NELK boys’ Kyle Forgeard was surprised to find out that he has an arrest warrant out of Ohio in the group’s latest video – while they were pranking the police.

The popular group of pranksters, known as the NELK Boys, have built a massive online following with over 4 million subscribers on YouTube for their entertaining videos.

In their August 17 video, they drove around Los Angeles in a self-driving Tesla drinking non-alcoholic Heineken beers, like they had previously done during their trip to Florida in June – a prank which racked up almost 7 million views on YouTube.

Police told Kyle the warrant was for in-state pickup.

They were pulled over twice by police, and the second time Kyle was asked to step out of the vehicle after trying to finish the beer in front of the police officer, who pulled the bottle out of his mouth.

NELK are no strangers to getting involved with the police, whether its playing pranks on them, actually getting arrested or going to court. One of the group’s more recent run-ins with police led to an actual arrest in Mississippi in May after an attempted prank in Target.

While the boys were let free, they revealed that they had been charged for disturbing the peace and would be going to court.

This time, however, it was only Kyle who appeared to be in trouble. The officer said “have you ever been to Ohio? It says you have a warrant out of Ohio, but it’s only for in-state pickup.” Later on, Kyle calls his lawyer for advice and theorizes that “I don’t know if it’s for a traffic ticket.”

At the very beginning of the episode, NELK also addressed the controversies surrounding their suggestions that Jason ‘905 Shooter’ Pagaduan, their old videographer, might have returned.

NELK was forced to fire him after three years with their Full Send company, claiming he was sending inappropriate messages to girls, and being generally “lazy” behind the scenes.

The statement read: “We read your comments last video. We’re only here because of you boys. Criticism noted.”

Twitch star Sykkuno officially reveals he’s moving to Las Vegas after dropping hints

Twitch superstar ‘Sykkuno’ has seen an explosive rise to internet stardom in the past few months, and after dropping a few hints that he’s making major life changes, has officially revealed he’s moving house.

Sykkuno’s is a unique and surprising case in online fame; while he’s been making content since 2011, the influencer saw a huge rise in YouTube subscribers during the last few months of 2020, skyrocketing him from 400k subscribers to over 2 million.

This impressive growth has been applauded by fans and fellow streamers alike — and it makes sense, as the creator managed to score a jaw-dropping 1.6 subscribers in just four months’ time.

It seems that his newfound success is also kicking off a major life change for the streamer, as hinted at during a broadcast in early January.

Data from VideoAmigo shows that Sykkuno’s subscriber count on YouTube started rapidly growing from August.

The star teased that he would be moving out of California, where he previously lived with major streaming group OfflineTV before exiting the collective to pursue his own personal projects in November 2020 — right when his subscriber count began to climb.

“I will say this, though, guys — I’m actually moving soon,” he said during a January 8 broadcast. “I don’t know if I should say where. But you guys will know, and it’ll happen within a month, probably. I will say this, guys… there’s a decent chance I won’t be in California anymore.”

It seems that Sykkuno’s hint was a bit more on-the-nose than fans expected, although he isn’t moving too far away; on January 15, the streamer revealed that he is moving to Las Vegas, home to several other major content creators.

However, it looks like Sykkuno’s streams will be on the back burner until he’s all settled in — but it doesn’t seem that his fanbase is too worried about that particular drawback.

“Moving to Las Vegas!” he tweeted. “I’ll be back on streams soon!”

Sykkuno’s post has been met with hilarious reactions from a slew of other top streamers, with the likes of Mizkif replying with a video of himself merely saying, “Bye.”

This move to Vegas marks another in a major series of life changes for one of the net’s biggest stars as he continues on his high rise to fame.
