“The Nelk Boys” are one of YouTube’s most popular prank channels, boasting over 3 million subscribers – but their fan meetup took a drastic turn precisely because of their huge fanbase.

Canadian prankster group “The Nelk Boys” decided to host a fan meetup in Dublin, Ireland, alongside popular YouTubers Bradley Martyn and “Stevewilldoit.”

However, their meetup in Dublin’s Phoenix Park didn’t go as expected: Instagram stories from the group show a horde of fans fleeing the area as police arrive on the scene to shut down the gathering.

The group discussed the incident in a series of Instagram story videos, where they admitted that they were surprised by the amount of fans who turned up to the event.

“I don’t know how many people showed up, but the cops fucking closed the gate, they shut the palce down,” they said of the drama. “We chose a public place on purpose so we thought they couldn’t shut it down.”

Further videos from their Ireland trip show the group being questioned in what could be the “Twenty Two” nightclub where they’d likewise planned a meetup with fans – although it doesn’t seem this particular venture was successful, either.

This wouldn’t be the first time the Nelk Boys have had a recent run-in with law enforcement: in fact, four members of the “Full Send” squad were pulled aside for questioning in Germany in early August, as part of their “spin the globe” challenge for a flight to Russia – although they were later released, details pending.

Of course, the Nelk Boys’ latest meetup isn’t the first YouTube event that has caused mass chaos, by far: makeup mogul James Charles’ meetup in Birmingham, UK saw an entire mall filled to the brim with screaming fans, and even caused a gridlock in the surrounding streets thanks to the fan gathering.

As YouTube stars continue to grow in popularity, the traditional definition of the word “celebrity” continues to change, with more and more internet stars drawing massive crowds due to their online reach.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
