Popular 100 Thieves streamer NICKMERCS has talked about his strong work ethic and how lucky he feels to be successful in his career of choice.

NICKMERCS was originally known for his Call of Duty streams where he built up a loyal fan base in recent years as he played Gamebattles matches and more.

However, he saw exponential growth after making the switch to Fortnite Battle Royale and is widely regarded as one of the very best console players on the Epic Games title.

He regularly aims to break records for the most kills in a game and recently even managed to win KEEMSTAR’s first Friday Night Fortnite Tournament alongside SypherPK against some of the best PC players around.

The popular personality clearly enjoys his career of choice but on May 16th he took to Twitter to state how lucky he feels to be able to make money and be successful doing what he loves.

He compared himself to other people that are successful but “don’t love what they do” and stated that this is where he feels the most lucky.

However, he makes it clear that his current lifestyle isn’t purely down to luck as he believes he would have found success “no matter where I ended up, doin’ whatever I did”.

He puts this down to a “drive & will to be better” which he states is “difficult to replicate” but he once again reiterates that turning his passion into a paycheck gives him a feeling of contentment that he wouldn’t have found in another field.

Nick has built the life for himself that he dreamed of and has become a role model for his ever growing fan base – you can’t say fairer than that.

Yet again, something bizarre has been dropped off at YouTuber David Dobrik’s house, this time a bag of Chipotle along with a slightly unnerving note flown into his backyard via drone.

David Dobrik has accumulated an enormous fan base on YouTube both as part of the Vlog Squad and as an independent creator. With 18.5 million subscribers, and 23.5 million followers on TikTok, he’s certainly not short of people who love his content and personality.

However, being an online personality of such a large scale comes with its lack of privacy, and that exposure to the world in turn has some bizarre side effects, as David has experienced before.

Earlier in October, the content creator was stunned to find that someone had left an actual kitten on his doorstep in a duffel bag. CCTV footage captured a mysterious stranger placing the bag at his door, but their identity could not be determined.

Clearly that incident has inspired others to try their luck at delivering something to his house without direct consent.

Mysterious drone arrives for David Dobrik

In a video uploaded to his TikTok account, David showed a small drone placing a paper bag of Chipotle in his backyard. “Bro, this is so scary. Someone f**king flew Chipotle on a drone into my backyard, I’m not f**king kidding. What if it’s a f**king bomb, what do I do?”

Also attached to the machine was a little green bag, which when opened revealed some other items along with a small orange handwritten note.

The note stated “you probably do not know who we are. But soon, the name Project better will be much more familiar. Thank you for being awesome, see you soon.”

The letter was definitely a little bit strange.

The mysterious group went on to say that “if you want to film it we’ll be at the nearest Chipotle on riverside with one picture on it. PS: the sauce is half-full because it was too heavy. Enjoy.”

While the incident appears to be relatively well-intentioned, it clearly freaked David and his friends out. The mysterious note referring to a group that will soon be “familiar” to him is certainly eerie, as is the ease at which it was able to access his yard.

It’s not yet clear whether David will really end up meeting the senders of the drone, or even if he ate the food it brought, but people certainly found it interesting as the video now has over 600,000 likes and 2.6 million views.
