NELK star SteveWillDoIt hilariously pranked fellow YouTuber Bradley Martyn after buying a new custom-wrapped Tesla Model X with his face on it.

SteveWillDoIt is part of the popular NELK Boys group, who have built a massive fan base for their entertaining weekly vlogs and prank series on YouTube.

One of the regular guests featured in their videos is fitness star Bradley Martyn, who has an ongoing “feud” with Steve, with the pair constantly pranking one another on their channels.

Steve and Bradley are always trying to prank one another in their videos.

Steve revealed, in his latest upload, that he had surprised himself with a new Tesla Model X, ordering it to arrive outside of their home in Los Angeles.

The YouTube star revealed his new Tesla, which retails for around $85,000, and highlighted the red custom wrap with their NELK’s ‘Full Send’ branding and designs all around the vehicle.

The hood of the car stood out the most as it surprisingly featured a supposed image of Bin Laden, though Bradley Martyn’s face was digitally added to the wrap instead.

While Steve was quite impressed with how the car turned out, fellow Nelk star Kyle Forgeard claimed that people might not even recognize Bradley’s face, “dude, people are just going to think its bin Laden though.”

Steve later took the car to Bradley Martyn to reveal his meticulous prank and, as expected, the fitness star was not too happy with the design choice.

“Nah you gotta take this off, you gotta take it off, it’s bad” he replied, stunned after realizing it was his face on the image.

Steve also demonstrated some of the unique tricks that you can do with the Tesla Model X, such as making the car “dance” along to music.

Despite being impressed with these features, Bradley was still unwilling to let the prank go and demanded that the image be removed from the car.

While it is unclear whether or not Steve will remove the image from his new car, there will likely be many more pranks between the pair in future videos.

Cadillac backs TSM in car company’s very first esports partnership

Popular esports and entertainment organization Team SoloMid — more commonly known as TSM — has announced a partnership with luxury auto brand Cadillac in the car company’s first-ever esports venture.

On January 11, TSM announced its exclusive partnership with Cadillac, marking the very first time the esteemed automotive company has entered such a business venture with competitive gaming groups.

The initiative kicked has off with a special TSM jersey featuring the Cadillac logo — a swanky fit that the organization flexed in a tweet revealing their latest money move.

That’s not all; according to TSM’s press release, their newfound partnership will also include some very special features for their fans, such as “access to exclusive streaming events, custom video and social media content, and experiential events and activations at the brand new, state-of-the-art TSM Performance Center.”

It looks like there’s a lot to be excited for, and even Cadillac is jazzed to be part of the proceedings, according to GM’s Manager of Emerging Media and Partnerships, Bryan Steele.

“Cadillac is excited to enter the esports space as part of the TSM family,” Steele said of the development. “Whether on the road, or on the Rift, our organizations place an incredibly high value on innovation and craftsmanship. Given our shared values, and the pedigree of Cadillac and TSM, it was a natural fit to team up with one of the most decorated esports teams in the world.”

While TSM might be Cadillac’s first esports partnership, this isn’t the first time a luxury car brand has gotten involved with an esports group; in November 2020, Chinese car brand Haval partnered with Epic Esports Events for their EPIC League Dota 2 initiative.

Just a month prior to Haval’s own initiative, Mazda entered a deal with Hellraisers. Other auto brands similarly involved with esports include Honda with Riot Games’ LCS and Team Liquid, McLaren with DragonX, Audi with Astralis Group, and Kia with the LEC.

It seems that more and more car companies are looking to get in on the action that competitive gaming brings. Who knows — it would be really cool to see a special TSM-wrapped Cadillac someday.
