YouTuber Nerd City has issued an eviscerating take down of Jake Paul in his latest video.

Unlike most critics of Jake Paul, Nerd City went to another level in claiming that Paul’s videos are illegal.

The United States and European Union passed laws that regulated how children could be advertised to and these laws are what NerdCity’s argument revolves around.

The [1990 Children’s Television Act] does several things that intended to stop scumbags like the Pauls from exploiting younger viewers. Shows may not include commercials for products related to the program or featuring characters from the program.

The CTA also stated that no more than 20% of a children’s program runtime can be advertisements.

After establishing that Jake Paul targets children with his YouTube channel, using quotes from Paul himself, Nerd City analysed a recent Paul vlog to see if it follows the CTA.

Out of a 13:57 video, nearly seven minutes of that time is devoted to advertising products. 50%.

His advertising time is not the only law Paul breaks either, Nerd City dug up another one that is repeatedly ignored.

Another prohibited tactic that Jake employs is to tell kids to tell their parents what to buy, that’s called pester power, and it’s illegal under the Unfair Commercial Practices Directive of the European Union.

Nerd City goes on to show a number of incidents that may not be illegal, but should not be in a channel targeted towards children.

The actual Jake Paul merchandise was not spared either, as the video shows most of it comes from online clip art or is even stolen from actual clothing designers.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
