Poker commentator Joe Stapleton pulled off an incredible prank on 1000 viewers during a tournament on January 15.

Stapleton is currently casting at the Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure tournament, and managed to trick users during the fourth day of the competition.

The prank is a well known one amongst experienced internet users, but the commentator managed to deceive a large number of those watching the event to close their browser.

While casting over a match featuring player Brian Altman, Stapleton told viewers that if they were a fan of the American, they should show their support “by using the special Brian Altman emote on Twitch” by pressing the Alt and F4 keys on their keyboard.

When the Alt and F4 keys are pressed together, it actually closes the window, with the stream immediately dropping by 1000 viewers. Stapleton couldn’t believe how many fell for it, laughing and saying “That can’t be true, we’ll never get them back!”

While many would apologise and try not cost their stream any more viewers, Stapleton took a different approach, attempting to bait those watching into doing it again.

“Earlier, I told everybody in Twitch chat that if they want to use the special Brian Altman emote they need to press Alt and F4, and we lost 1000 viewers. Guys, the emote offends a lot of people, it’s really gnarly – so don’t hit Alt and F4 for the emote.”

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.”
