YouTuber and streamer Tom ‘Syndicate’ Cassell revealed why he was stopped by the police while test driving a new Mercedes AMG-GT R.

Syndicate has built a massive following on YouTube with almost 10 million subscribers on his main channel. Fans know him best for his popular series in Minecraft and Call of Duty Zombies.

The British content creator is also known for his entertaining daily Vlog series on his ‘Life of Tom’ channel. In his January 11 upload, he had a brush with the law as he was pulled over by the police.

Life of Tom, YouTubeSyndicate’s Mercedes AMG GT R test drive did not go to plan.

Syndicate explained that he was going to test drive a brand new Mercedes AMG-GT R during his video, but, things didn’t go quite to plan.

After getting to the dealership and highlighting some aspects of the expensive sports car, he set out on the road but was stopped by the police only minutes later.

“Well, ladies and gentlemen, we have indeed been pulled over by the police,” he explained, recording the police car through his rear-view mirror.

Topic starts at 5:09 for mobile users.

He then revealed that, although he was driving, it was not his fault that the car was pulled over: “This has nothing to do with my driving and, in fact, to do with where the plates are, so nothing to do with me.”

After watching the car dealer and the police officer talk for a couple of minutes, fortunately for Syndicate, he was able to finish off the rest of his test drive without any further problems.

The YouTuber later explained that there was a lot more to his test drive then what was caught on camera. “There was an undercover cop next to us,” he added, “there was some sort of armed robbery going on in the town we went past and then we got pulled over by police.”

When they had finished the test drive, Syndicate expressed that although he was a big fan of the car, he was unsure if he willing to commit to one as the waiting list for the new model could take him up to a year and a half to get one for himself.

TikTok star Nikita Crump has managed to pull off the incredible feat of living in her car, a 2012 Honda Civic, for over one year. Now, she has explained how she was able to pull it off in a new YouTube video.

Crump’s journey began in a video first uploaded on November 3, 2019 where she explained how she officially told her landlord she would be moving out of her home and into her car.

According to Crump, this wasn’t some impromptu decision and she had been spending a few months actively thinking about it before taking the plunge.

Nikita has been living in her car for over a year.

Despite having a nice house with affordable rent and good roommates, she felt moving into her car was something she “had to do.”

Since then, she has successfully spent a whole year living in her car and marked the anniversary of her first night by explaining how she is able to stay cool or warm at night.

In the backseat of her car, the YouTuber keeps a pillow and too fuzzy blankets which she uses to cover herself up.

Along with her sweatpants and sweatshirt, she is able to stay warm even in the winter months. However, occasionally she has to put a jacket on if it’s ever especially cold outside.

“In Northern California, a lot of the warmer days are still cool nights, so I’m fortunate that most nights throughout the year are totally bearable, but there’s totally been the occasion where it is hot, I am sweating and I wear as minimal clothing as I can,” she explained.

Luckily, she also has a rechargeable fan which can help her get through the night if need be despite only staying charged for one day.

@nikitaraschellYeah, I’m homeless. I live in my civic, I shower at my gym, and I’m just your average gal. ##whatsinmybag ##hotelcivic ##homeless ##sponsorme♬ Aesthetic Girl – Yusei

In addition to just staying cool, the TikTok sensation also revealed she showers at the gym and keeps plenty of personal hygiene products inside her bag including shampoo, toothpaste, and deodorant to name a few.

Now, Crump is hitting the road and embarking on a two-month-long trip around the United States where she’ll be documenting her experiences.

The entertainer’s decision to live in her car has paid dividends, as she currently has over one million followers on TikTok.
