Popular YouTube prankster Niko Omilana stunned his housemates with an insane prank, filling their home with over 3 million packing peanuts. 

Niko Omilana and the Beta Squad are British YouTube’s most prominent rising stars. The group, consisting of a host of online content creators, has been going from strength to strength, with member Chunkz even finding himself thrown onto Sky Sports’ Premier League coverage for the 2020/21 season.


A little closer to home, though, Chunkz was given a monumental surprise by his housemate Niko.

Omilana, founder of the Niko Defence League, is known for his prank videos and decided that the Beta Squad should celebrate moving out in a truly unique way.

In a YouTube video uploaded on September 18, Omilana explained that he wanted to do something special to celebrate them moving out. He decided that, for whatever reason, the perfect prank would be to fill the entire downstairs with packing peanuts.

Needless to say, a lot of packing peanuts were required. The total came to just over 3 million, or 230 bags and an entire lorry.

The biggest challenge was to get all the peanuts into the house without any of his housemates noticing, but Niko managed the task in a gruelling four hour period.


He even received a visit from the police, who took issue with the fact that many of the unloaded bags were obstructing the road. This ultimately didn’t dent the prank though, with Omilana managing to execute it to perfection.

Once the Beta Squad had the prank revealed to them, their attention turned to how the millions of peanuts would be cleaned up.

In a hilarious twist, Omilana decided that the best thing to do would be to call a plumber, who seemed completely baffled at the “leak” he was asked to clean up.


It’s one of the funniest videos we’ve seen in a long time, but we don’t envy whoever was actually tasked with clearing up the mess. Just another day with the brilliant Beta Squad.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.


However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.


“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
