The NELK Boys are always up for an adventure, but their latest idea to take part in a ‘Spin the Globe’ challenge has left them regretting doing the idea altogether.

The NELK Boys are well known for their crazy YouTube channel, full of pranks with insane production values, and their “Full Send” motto which sees them go all in on any video they upload. 

Their infectious attitude may have cost them though, as they decided to take part in a challenge that saw them spin a globe while blindfolded, place a finger randomly on the globe, and travel to that country no matter what.

To kick off the challenge, the boys first had to get their hands on a globe, and after shopping around to find the perfect one, headed straight to the Veld Music Festival in Toronto, Canada to perform the all important spin.

Of course, the NELK Boys don’t do anything by half measures, so they met up with DJ Julian Dzeko to do it live on stage at Veld, in front of 20,000 screaming people – but not before shotgunning some beers with the musician first.

With Jesse Sabastiani tasked with choosing the location, 20,000 waited with baited breath as Kyle Forgeard spun the globe, all for Jesse’s finger to land on Russia as their final destination.

Unsurprisingly, the lads were not happy with the outcome, with Forgeard storming off stage shouting “Fuck that!”, while Jesse simply repeated “Oh fuck!” over and over again.

The NELK Boys couldn’t even get any advice from their lawyer, so instead took to the woods in Canada with some beers and some guns to “prepare for their trip” to Europe’s largest country.

The motley crew gave no indication of when they’re going to make the trip to Russia, but they did confirm that a new video would be coming out on Monday, August 12, leaving fans wondering if it will show the boys up to their usual antics in Moscow.

BTS crushes 28-year-old record for most music show awards in a year

K-Pop group BTS have once again broken a record after scoring a win at the 2020 Asia Artist Awards (AAA).

BTS, also known as the Bangtan Boys, consists of seven members: V, J-Hope, RM, Jin, Jimin, Jungkook, and Suga. The group debuted in 2013 before soaring to international popularity in 2018 after releasing the YouTube Premium documentary Burn the Stage.

Most recently, BTS released their fifth studio album ‘Be’ on November 20, which includes Dynamite – the first of their songs to be recorded fully in English.

Dynamite helped BTS break their latest record after the song won the Daesung for ‘Best Song of the Year’ at the AAAs.

In the K-Pop world, a Daesung is one of the most prestigious accolades an artist can receive. When winning a Daesung, the focus is on the records the artist released that year, and takes into account how many copies – both digital and physical – were sold.

By winning this latest Daesung, BTS broke a record that has previously been held since 1992 by K-pop trio Seo Taiji and the Boys. The band had previously collaborated with BTS in 2017 in a 25th anniversary concert, wherein Taiji announced that he was passing the torch onto BTS to continue K-Pop’s legacy.

“This is your generation now,” Taiji said at the time.

BTS’ Daesung for Dynamite also extends their record for the most Daesungs in history to 43 – a record they previously broke in 2019 after they won a total of 37.

This isn’t the first time the group’s hit song Dynamite has broken records. Back in August, they broke several milestones on YouTube after fans eagerly watched the premiere of the song’s music video.

One record they broke was for most views within 10 minutes of uploading a YouTube video, as over 20 million viewers tuned in to watch Dynamite during that timeframe.

The live premiere of the video also broke the YouTube record for most concurrent viewers.  One live count recorded that between 3 to 4 million people were watching the video at once.
