The NELK Boys might be the most famous pranksters on YouTube, and they’re continually leveling up their content, so much so that now they’ve got rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine appearing in videos to prank fans with them.

NELK’s pranks have often found them getting into trouble in some way, shape or form, be it just getting kicked out of stores or even as far as being wanted by police.

Their legal troubles don’t stretch quite as far as that of 6ix9ine’s (real name Daniel Hernandez), though, who was sentenced to two years in prison for various charges in a well-publicized trial and subsequent conviction.

6ix9ine has always found a way to stir the pot throughout his career.

Thanks to 6ix9ine’s cooperation with the authorities, though, he managed to get out much sooner than was originally expected, and is now able to go about his life fairly normally — albeit, with a huge horde of security guards.

With his character coming under question so much in recent years, the NELK Boys decided the time was now perfect to get him on board to prank some fans — producing some hilarious results.

NELK’s original duo, Kyle Forgeard and Jesse Sebastiani, took to the streets to pull people over and frame an interview with them where they discuss hip-hop.

These discussions would inevitably lead to questions about 6ix9ine, and their opinions on him as a person and as a musician.

While some were complimentary about the rapper, some offered less savory opinions of him, with one even being tricked into calling him a “rat” right to his face.

While most of the time it all ended in laughter, the last couple of people they spoke to — two young men from Chicago and Philadelphia — had a more serious chat with the rapper, asking him “why all the problems?” and adding that they “just want to see him alive.”

Obviously, some of the unsuspecting fans got away with not being too harsh — but we wouldn’t want to be the ones tricked into calling Tekashi a rat straight to his face.

Twitch streamer confronts DoorDash driver after console war trash talk

Console wars are nothing new to video game enthusiasts. From schoolyard debates to forum threads 500 pages deep, console loyalists have fought tooth and nail since the dawn of time. Now, the battleground has shifted with even DoorDash drivers getting in on the action against customers.

During a Twitch broadcast, streamer Jameskii was playing Minecraft while waiting for DoorDash to deliver his order. Suddenly, he received a text message on his phone.

“Hold on, is my drink here?” he wondered as he grabbed his mobile device. “Oh my God! Oh my God!”

As the streamer stared down at his phone, he could hardly contain his disbelief at the message he received from the driver.

“My food delivery guy just messaged me ‘Xbox is trash as f**k,” he laughed. “I’m not kidding. My f**king DoorDash just messaged me. It says, ‘Hello, DoorDash has arrived with your order’ and the next message is ‘Xbox is trash as f**k.’”

As it turns out, the driver actually tried to call the streamer, but when Jameskii didn’t pick up, he felt the need to trash talk Xbox.

Despite all this confusion and the out of context attack on Microsoft’s console, Jameskii wondered if he should call the driver back.

“Say yeah, PlayStation is better, woo!” his friend suggested as the streamer began to redial the number.

Eventually, someone on the other end picked up. “Alright, what did you say about Xbox?” Jameskii asked point-blank.

After a few moments of silence, the driver doubled down on his earlier comment and shouted, “F**k Xbox!”

The remark had the streamer in stitches and made him burst out laughing at the absurdity of the whole situation.

While console wars have a long history dating beyond even the 90s when Nintendo and Sega duked it out, it’s unlikely that the phenomenon ever reached a point where delivery drivers partake. It just goes to show that we’re living in a strange timeline.
