YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was left shocked and confused when his insane custom Minecraft Creeper PC made by Linus Tech Tips arrived damaged.

Popular Tech YouTuber Linus Sebastian surprised PewDiePie at the end of March when he revealed he had built him a mind blowing Minecraft PC in the shape of a Creeper.

However, during his April 19 episode of Last Week I Asked You, the Swedish star’s unboxing quickly went south when he discovered that the custom device had been severely damaged in shipping.

In his latest upload, the YouTuber revealed that he had finally received the custom Minecraft PC made by Linus Tech Tips. It then cut to him unboxing the device. “Damn she look good, not gonna lie. Look at that, that’s insane!” he said upon seeing the Creeper PC tower.

However after taking it out of the shipping container, he quickly noticed something was wrong when he saw components in the back dangling. “Uh, I don’t think that’s supposed to happen,” he said, before grimacing and stating, “It’s okay I know how to fix computers.”

The Swede then tried to set it up and told his wife “I think it will work!” before joking “It might just explode!” The camera then zoomed in on the loose motherboard and revealed the extent of the damage. “Look at that dent. How did it get that in that box? Look at that! That’s awful. Creeper, what did they do to you? Oh my God.”

(Timestamp 18:29 for mobile users.)

The unboxing video abruptly ended before Pewds even attempted to turn it on. Although based on those dents, it seems as if the custom PC took quite the beating.

Linus himself reacted to the unfortunate news on social media and explained how he’s had fears about shipping computers in the past due to potential damage – which unfortunately seemed to come true this time.

“Look what happened to Pewdiepie’s Creeper PC even tho we custom crated it 🙁 THIS is why I have PTSD from the things I’ve seen happen to computers in shipping…” he tweeted on April 19.

It remains to be seen how much damage was actually done to the PC during shipping, although we expect PewDiePie will eventually make an update video once it gets up and running.

Dents aside, the Swedish entertainer seemed genuinely blown away by the custom made Creeper. Since he’s the king of YouTube and Minecraft, it’s perfect for his pro gamer needs.

Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
