NELK Boys’ Kyle discovers he’s wanted by police in drunk-driving prank

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.”

Californian YouTube Among Us sensation Corpse Husband has apparently appeared out of nowhere, but who exactly is he?

It’s safe to say that every gamer, non-gamer and Youtube fanatic knows about Among Us, the newest party game that sees players attempt to decipher who the impostor is before they brutally murder all of their comrades and win the game.

Thousands of streamers have jumped on the Among Us bandwagon, with names like xQc, Valkyre and Trainwrecks dominating the Among Us Charts. The game has even attracted political figures, namely American Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez who used the game as a platform to reach out to the gaming youth of today.

On YouTube, however, the Among Us scene rests firmly within the grasp of Corpse Husband (or Corpse, who has become an overnight Among Us sensation. Despite his synonymity with the game though, Corpse has a long and varied streaming past despite only being the tender age of 23.

From YouTube spook to Among Us fame

Corpse’s Youtube career began in the dark realms of horror story narration. Citing online CreepyPasta narration channels such as Mr.Nightmare, Be.Buster and Lazy Masquerade as inspiration, Corpse created his own iteration of a horror narration channel, with his distinctive deep voice adding to the spookiness of his videos. This mystery was only amplified by Corpse’s decision to hide his face in the online sphere.

While Corpse’s YouTube still provides every horror fan with a video playground, his most recent Among Us videos have racked up millions of views, blowing his creepier videos out of the YouTube waters in terms of views.

Focusing on how to win the game as the impostor – even if you have admitted you are the impostor – the three current Among Us videos on his channel have earned him a total of 26.5 million views. That’s hardly a number to smirk at.

Being the impostor in Among Us certainly requires the gift of a silver tongue, something that Corpse clearly possesses. It’ll be interesting to see whether his popularity fades as the game slips out of the mainstream media, but judging by his views that doesn’t seem too likely. After all, if you’re not watching him for Among Us right now is the perfect time of year to sit back, relax and be terrified.
