YouTuber and social media mogul Vitalyzed released a video where one of his pranks went terribly wrong – nearly seven months after the fact.

Vitalyzed admitted that he’d been sitting on the footage for over half a year, and was finally ready to show it to the world.


“I’ve been sitting on this footage for the longest time… it’s the most insane footage ever. I have to share it with you guys.”

Vitaylzed’s controversial video was in collaboration with instagram mogul Evan “dwarfmamba” Eckenrode. Vitalyzed explained the premise as a kidnapping prank, where he stuffed Evan in a suitcase on the roadside in an attempt to get a reaction out of bystanders.

In the video, Vitalyzed is seen zipping up the suitcase with Evan inside. Afterwards, he calls for a Lyft ride, asking for the drivers’ aid in placing the suitcase in the trunk of his car while Evan screamed for help.


When questioned about the suitcase, Vitalyzed explained that he had stuffed his child inside as punishment for misbehaving. While some participants opened the suitcase in an attempt to free Evan, others simply walked away.

However, one passerby decided to take legal action.

Vitalyzed noted an LAPD helicopter flying above the area a short while into his prank. A series of police cars then pulled up to the scene and officers demanded that he drop the bag.


“You know me, I love to push boundaries. I told them, ‘I’m not dropping the bag!’”

The officers pulled out their guns and placed both Vitalyzed and Evan in handcuffs. After placing the two in the back of a police vehicle, the officers decided to let them go – much to their relief.

Vitalyzed expressed distaste at the participant who called the authorities.

“I guess that’s the reaction I wanted… he was a little pussy, calling the cops, which is fine.”

This prank gone wrong showcases how dangerous such pursuits can be when pranksters decide to push the line. However, it doesn’t look like this instance will stop Vitalyzed’s efforts anytime soon.


NELK Boys’ SteveWillDoIt surprises Kyle with super rare $135k Audi RS7

The NELK Boys’ might be best known for their crazy party antics, but SteveWillDoIt has been on an insane charitable spree recently, topping it off by buying NELK co-founder Kyle Forgeard an incredibly rare Audi RS7.

Earlier in October, Steve set up a homeless man with a whole new life: a new job, an apartment and $25,000 in the bank, hoping to truly turn his life around.


Now, Steve is trying to thank Kyle for bringing him into NELK and giving him the platform to make himself a success, and has done so in one of the most extravagant ways possible.

Referring to himself as the “cool Mr Beast,” Steve and the whole NELK team managed to keep the secret of his gift for a month — and it was definitely worth it.

The NELK Boys are most commonly known for their wild lifestyle.

After arriving back in Orlando, Florida, Steve tells Kyle that he’s got a “very cool” rental car that he can drive from the airport.

Obviously, at first Kyle was confused about what it could be, perhaps a bit cautious. But, when they got outside and Kyle saw his “dream car,” which is currently only one of two of its kind in the US, he assumed Steve had hired the 2021 Audi RS7 for a test drive for him.

Instead, after one of the women there congratulated him, it was revealed that Steve had actually paid for the car, in cash and upfront, for Kyle to keep as his own — only his second car since an old Mazda he used to own.


It definitely sounds like Steve had to pull some strings to make it happen. He was originally searching for a 2020 Audi RS7, knowing that it was Kyle’s dream car, but the opportunity to pick up a 2021 model arrived and he couldn’t pass it up, paying for the car there and then when it was available.

With only two currently in the US, it would be interesting to see who has the other one. It’s almost funny to think that one of them belongs to a YouTube prankster who just likes to make crazy videos for his fans.
