Syndicate Threatened with Arrest Over Owning Elon Musk’s Flame Thrower Device

YouTuber Tom “Syndicate” Cassell has revealed that his recent purchase of Elon Musk’s ‘Not-a-Flamethrower’ device has got him into a serious spot of bother with the law.

During a recent vlog on a trip in the United States, Syndicate explained that police had shown up at his home in Manchester while he was away, attempting to confiscate the flamethrower.

On August 10, Syndicate posted an image from his door camera, showing a number of police officers at his home, saying the ‘heat were on him’.

The police had been made aware of his possession of the flamethrower as it was in one of Syndicate’s previous vlogs.


Upon his return to the UK, Syndicate has given an update on the situation, having been told by Manchester police that the possession of the ‘Not-a-Flamethrower’ is illegal.

It breaches section 5 of the UK firearm act:

Section 5 firearms act. Section 5.1b.
(b)any weapon of whatever description designed or adapted for the discharge of any noxious liquid, gas.

Breaching section 5, leads to breaching section 1, which means Syndicate is left with two choices. Either hand the Not-a-Flamethrower over to police, or they will search his house and take it.


Syndicate says he has discussed with the police and a third option may be feasible. Removing a certain mechanism in the flamethrower could possibly render it in compliance with the firearms act.

However, he then explains that there is currently a seal in place, which means the flamethrower is not operational anyway.

Syndicates lawyer is apparently in Africa, but the police aren’t giving him much time, saying that they will “escalate” matters if need be.


Since then, there hasn’t been any more updates from Syndicate, but we will keep this story updated as more information is made available.

Update: Syndicate has now uploaded a full video to his channel explaining the situation in more detail.

A fan of popular YouTuber Corpse Husband has taken her dedication to the next level by getting an image of his hair tattooed on her, after he posted a picture of a single strand of his hair to celebrate one million Instagram followers.

Corpse Husband is a YouTuber who has experienced a rather abrupt surge in popularity this year, accumulating a wave of new fans after jumping on the Among Us hype, scoring views in the many millions for both his old and new content.

He started YouTube in 2015, and focused primarily on narrating spooky stories online with his mesmerizingly deep voice, though notably has not yet revealed his face.

His viewers are certainly passionate, and even won out against possibly the biggest fandom on the planet when fans of Corpse Husband and BTS tried to see who could ‘ratio’ Mr Beast’s tweet the hardest, with Corpse winning by a tiny margin and securing $10,000 for charity.

Corpse Husband’s sudden rise to popularity has been unprecedented.

But one fan decided to take her support to an entirely new level, after Corpse revealed a single strand of his hair on Instagram.

As he doesn’t ever show his face, fans have naturally become curious as to who the person attached to the incredible voice is, and Corpse has played along with people’s curiosity by doing miniscule reveals of different parts of himself.

First it was #onlyhands, and this time around in celebration of him hitting 1 million followers on Instagram, he revealed a single strand of his hair in a reveal he called #onlystrands. The bizarrely atmospheric black and white image now has over 560,000 likes and counting.

Thanks for 1M on insta u lil freaks. Here’s a strand of my hair. #onlystrands #onlyhands #corpsehusband

A post shared by Corpse Husband (@corpse_husband) on

Dedicated fan CorpseBaddie on Twitter decided she wanted to immortalize the image, and did that in the most permanent way possible by actually tattooing the hair strand on her ribs.

The October 25 tweet revealing the tattoo blew up at a rapid rate, and at the time of writing it has garnered over 30,000 likes.

Speaking about the sudden interest in her brand new tattoo, CorpseBaddie sent a message to her favorite creator. “So Corpse Husband this blew up. I have one question, can I play a game of Among Us with y’all?”

Though he has yet to respond, an Among Us collab between the pair would certainly be entertaining for those that have followed her tattoo journey.

The tattoo is just a testament to how unprecedented Corpse Husband’s rise to popularity has been, and this is certainly only the beginning of his fans’ loyalty.
