Having recently transitioned from Twitch to YouTube, Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop decided to enjoy the luxuries of the new platform now that he was no longer held down by his subscriber count. Unfortunately for him though, throughout the holiday his bedroom became the target of an absurd prank from The Mob. 

Taking a brief break from the full-time streaming grind, he ventured to Japan for a momentary respite, only to be thrown hilariously right back into the center of attention upon returning home.

Fellow content creators under the 100 Thieves banners, The Mob had the ingenious idea of taking a controversial CouRage Tweet to the next level by redecorating his entire bedroom in the LA Cash App content house. This ridiculous prank came at a surprising cost however.

Twitter: CouRageJDThe Mob were officially brought on-board to 100 Thieves in June of 2019.

CouRage is never one to shy away from sharing his opinion online yet one of his most amusingly controversial arguments to date revolves around the Star Wars franchise being overrated.

Taking issue with that sentiment, The Mob decided to completely redesign CouRage’s bedroom while he was away in Japan. Taking the time to carefully cover every inch of space with Star Wars memorabilia, even decking the floor with prints of the logo. 

Despite having revealed the end result of the makeover in an October 26 Tweet, a full behind-the-scenes video was unveiled on November 13 and the ultimate price of the overhaul came as a surprise to all involved.

Nadeshot said he would pay for all of this when we’re done,” Froste cautiously explained once the room was refurbished.

“We thought this was gonna be like a couple of hundred dollars at most,” he detailed before Classify chimed in, joking that he “deadass thought it was going to be like $300.”

Overall, the cost of the prank came to well over a thousand dollars, but fortunately for members of The Mob, the bank of Nadeshot was there to bail them out for the sake of quality content.

With an expectedly hilarious reaction upon walking through his bedroom door, it’s safe to say that the prank on CouRage was absolutely worthwhile in the end.

Who knows, perhaps with all the Star Wars decor he might finally change his tune and come around on the series.

Ludwig scores rare Pokemon card from 1999

The Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded for nothing on school playgrounds decades ago can now sell for as much as a house. The hobby has also become a major hit on sites like Twitch, with streamers buying sealed booster boxes from the 90s to open live for viewers.

On November 22, Twitch star Mizkif broke open 1st Edition sealed packs from the 1999 Fossil set. Those attending the event lost their minds when pro gamer Ludwig scored a 1st Edition Dragonite after streamer Trainwreckstv gave his pack to him.

The moment went viral due to the Twitch personality’s generosity backfiring. “Dude I swear to God if I said no to this pack to be fair and nice and its a good pack I want it back. Ludgwig, if this is good it’s my pack. If it’s bad, it’s your pack,” he exclaimed moments before the card was pulled. Unfortunately, the booster he passed on contained the exact rare holographic he was chasing after.

After the excitement settled, the group felt bad for Train’s incredibly bad luck. Although the popular Twitch star wasn’t too bitter about it, laughing it off on Twitter. If nothing else, he should be applauded for his generosity.

According to recent sales of the item, a 1st Edition Dragonite can sell anywhere from $8k to 9.7k depending on the grading. Luckily for Ludwig, the item looked incredibly pristine, giving him a good chance at a PSA 10 grading.
