YouTube collective The NELK Boys have issued an update on their status after being stopped on their travels to Russia. 

The NELK Boys, a Canadian creative group, are well known for their YouTube uploads that include daring pranks and top-level production. Their ‘Full Send’ motto means they are going all-in on a video, meaning it can lead to some surprising and shocking outcomes. 

That was in full display during their long-awaited Spin the Globe challenge, where they found out that they would be going to Russia. However, despite starting their travels, they’ve already run into some problems that could put their adventure in trouble.

On August 9, the NELK team revealed that four members had been pulled aside for questioning while in Germany during their journey to Russia. 

“Kyle, Jesse, 905 and Steve were pulled aside at the security checkpoint while boarding their flight to Russia. Questioning has been going on for over an hour thus far. We are currently in contact with our Visa attorneys hoping to solve this issue immediately,” a statement read on the creative collective’s Twitter.

However, the group had not offered fans an update on their situation until a few hours later when they switched to Instagram.

“Boys, we are all good and free, thank the fucking send gods!” their Instagram story started. Waiting to talk to our lawyer about what we can and can’t say about what happened today trying to board to Russia.”

They continued on: “Right now, we are stuck in fucking Germany. Not sure what the next move is but we’ll see what’s good.”

As of writing, on August 10, the group are still stuck in Frankfurt, Germany, and have not yet traveled to Russia.

Of course, regardless of what happens, the NELK boys will be able to put on another epic video for their fans – even if they aren’t able to fully send it.

Jake Paul has already set his sights on new boxing opponents such as Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis and even his brother Logan Paul, after his impressive second round K.O. victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson.

Following the highly anticipated Tyson vs Jones Jr boxing card on November 28, YouTube star Jake Paul came away from the night as one of the biggest winners after his win over Nate Robinson went viral.

The Calabasas-based content creator put on a strong performance in the co-main event with a knockout in the second round, moving to a 2-0 record as a professional boxer, and immediately began issuing challenges for his next bout.

Conor McGregor was one of the fighters Jake Paul challenged to a boxing fight.

During the post-fight interview, Jake Paul revealed that he would soon be looking to take a step up in competition after his time off, even challenging some of the biggest MMA stars in the world.

He explained that he would be interested in taking on Conor McGregor, a two-division UFC champion, as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and undefeated Bellator fighter, Dillon Danis, who he has had an ongoing feud with.

“I’m taking this seriously,” Paul explained, predicting KO victories over both athletes, “There’s a long list of opponents that I want. Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out.”

While many viewers claimed it could be too soon for Jake to take on life-long fighters, he also shared a list of other content creators he’d like to meet in the ring, including his brother Logan Paul and YouTube rival KSI.

“There’s my brother, there’s KSI on the line, Austin McBroom.” he admitted, “I want to be in this sport a long time. I’m in love with it, so why not.”

KSI was quick to respond to the challenge, claiming that he was not impressed with Jake’s performance on the night, even though he had earned multiple knockdowns during the bout.

Whether he will get to fight any of these stars in the coming months remains unclear, but he has certainly generated a lot of hype around his name following his impressive win.
