Minecraft streamer Fitz fell for what may be the oldest trick in the book during a September 23 Twitch broadcast of Cube World. 

The 23-year-old tried out the new game Cube World with fellow streamer SwaggerSouls, a game the two had been looking forward to for a long time.

The Minecraft-styled adventure had been in development since 2013.  In it, players take control of a character in one of several classes such as mage or warrior and are dropped into the world to go on quests and explore.

Twitter/SwaggerSoulsFitz was playing Cube World with SwaggerSouls.

While the stream was going well, Fitz didn’t know how to open the command console. One cold-blooded viewer kept spamming instructions to help the popular entertainer out.

“Open up the command console with Alt F2. If that doesn’t work, try Alt F3. If that doesn’t work, Alt F4,” Fitz said as he performed the instructions, unaware that pressing alt and F4 will close the window.

When the game closed Fitz’s face told the whole story. He knew he’d been had and after a brief moment of silence where he could hardly believe his own misfortune, the streamer shouted “I’m fucking so dumb!” 

Telling someone to press alt and F4 is one of the oldest tricks in the book when it comes to online gaming. The website Know Your Meme defines the Alt + F4 as “a bait and switch trolling technique used against users who lack knowledge of operating system shortcuts and features.” Of course, Alt + F4 really is the Windows shortcut to close the active program. This meme is so ubiquitous that some gaming keyboards actually have the function to disable the shortcut.

“Are you fucking kidding me?” Swagger laughed while Fitz kept repeating ‘I’m so dumb’. “Are you autistic? Did you really just Alt F4?” 

Fitz was playing Cube World when he fell for the viewer’s prank.

The Alt-F4 trick is widely recognized and certainly something that a streamer as experienced as Fitz shouldn’t have fallen for. 

“You wanted to take an edible before this stream,” Swagger went on, suggesting that Fitz made such a brutal error without even being high. “I might as well have, dude,” Fitz sulked.

“I can’t believe I just fell for that,” he went on. “It was like the fifth time he spammed it. I was like alright Bill listen I’m gonna try. Oh my God. This it it bro. This is the end of my career.” 

With Twitchcon coming up on September 27 there’s no doubt the streamer will have some explaining to do when questioned by fans and other broadcasters about this epic fail.

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.”
