A Runescape streamer decided to get a little too experimental with his broadcast and lit a tissue on fire, leading to a scary situation that almost took out his entire streaming setup.

Popular Runescape player and Twitch streamer “BeggarOfficial” (alternatively, “MrBeggar”) knows that “shrimpin’ ain’t easy,” and decided to switch things up in a way that at first appeared to be merely lighthearted humor.

After blowing his nose into a tissue, the broadcaster lit the object on fire, as an apparent “recall” after humorously offering to auction the object off.

Fans of old school Runescape got more than they bargained for after tuning into MrBeggar’s February live stream.

“I’m recalling the Beggar booger!” he joked, holding up an open flame from his lighter to the tissue until it caught fire in his hand. “Screw it! Forget it. That’s it. That’s right.”

However, the flame soon grew out of control, causing him to drop the tissue on his desk where sparks could be seen flying up from the furniture into the air, as the fire itself billowed into the camera.

“Oh god!” Beggar cried out, going out of frame to grab a bottle of water which he used to quell the blaze.

Thankfully, he was able to remedy the situation, which could have very easily sparked onto the electrical equipment on his setup and cause a far worse issue.

“You know, I watch these videos of these idiots lighting their houses on fire,” he said, poking fun at himself. “You know, I see ‘em on the internet. And I say, ‘Wow, people are stupid. Who would do that?’ These people are idiots. They’ll do anything for views. …at least I had that totally planned out.’”

In spite of the obvious hilarity of the sudden fire, the streamer admitted that the moment actually embarrassed him, after rewatching a clip of the incident for the lulz.

“Oh no boys,” he continued. “No joke, like you guys have no idea how big that fire got. …I am so embarrassed, bro. Okay, here’s the thing: it smells incredible in my room. …it lit up so fast, and then I tried to blow it out, and it was like a forest fire!”

Probable scorch marks on his desk aside, Beggar showed that he knows how to poke fun at himself, even after almost burning his own house to the ground.

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.”
