YouTuber airrack is known for his crazy antics and ‘sneaking in’ videos, but his latest challenge – sneaking his $100,000 yacht into Logan Paul’s pool – might just be his most ambitious yet.

In the second episode of his ‘yacht series’, airrack – real name Eric – attempts to sneak his $100,000, 27ft yacht into the backyard pool of YouTuber Logan Paul without him noticing.

Having won the yacht from Patty Mayo and towing it all the way from Portland to Los Angeles, he then painted the boat bright pink and wrote “Sub 2 AIRRACK” on the side.

Although the initial list of target houses comprised of the Sway House, Hype House, and Logan Paul’s house, it quickly became clear that the logistics of the first two houses meant they were non-starters for the project.

Getting the $100k, 27ft yacht into Logan Paul’s pool required a lot of planning and an industrial crane.

This meant that Eric had to go forward with his most difficult plan; Sneaking his 27ft Yacht into Logan Paul’s pool. Despite the insanity of this prank, it’s not the first time Logan has been Eric’s target.

Given that this requires an industrial crane, the bill for this video came to nearly $15k, though he did say he’d “happily empty his bank account to make these videos” so this may be only the first of many big-budget pranks we see from Eric.

With measurements taken and a crane company confirmed, the day arrived. Eric described the stress as “comparable to graduating college or hitting a million subscribers on YouTube… not that I would know what either of those feels like!”

“I’m not sure the crane is strong enough”

As the crane begins to lift the boat, he does get a little concerned and admits he’s “not even sure the crane is strong enough to lift up the boat” after being asked by one of Logan’s roommates whether he had drained the fluids from the boat (he had not).

Eventually, after a few tense moments, the boat touches down in the pool. Having been woken up to discover a yacht in his back garden, Logan was surprisingly calm, dismissing Eric and “going back to bed” – evidently living with YouTubers desensitizes people to crazy pranks such as this.

Despite the massive bill and tense moments, it seems the work was all worth it as they threw a “yacht party” in Logan’s pool. With more yacht pranks in the pipeline, it seems we’ll be seeing more of the hot pink $100k yacht on airrack’s channel.

Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy has appeared to confirm that the popular website’s SiriusXM channel will be moving on satellite radio, claiming he was “99%” sure they were leaving.

The satirical sports website announced its SiriusXM channel back in November of 2017 and launched a few months later in January 2018.

Now, however, it seems like the deal is done and so is Barstool.

Dave Portnoy, Barstool Sports’ founder took to Twitter to announce that it was looking extremely unlikely that the channel would continue on SiriusXM.

“I’d say we’re 99.9% out of Sirius,” he revealed. “We aren’t in same stratosphere in terms of negotiations.”

“We will just move on to new platforms as always. Our crowd will follow as always,” the Barstool founder added.

It’s unclear exactly where they will move to and Portnoy, who has grown increasingly famous over the years in part to his viral pizza reviews, offered no clues.

One possible destination spot could very well be Spotify, which shocked the industry by signing Joe Rogan and his podcast to an exclusive deal.

While Portnoy didn’t elaborate on the type of deal he would like, it sounds like he’s being severely low-balled by the satellite radio company, hence his aggressive-sounding tweet.

This news comes as Bloomberg has reported that Howard Stern is nearing a massive $120M a year deal – a step above from his previous deals at $80 to $100 million a year.

If those reports are right, it’s a sign that Sirius XM is willing to pay some serious cash, but apparently not when it comes to keeping Barstool within its network.

“See this is why I can’t work for peanuts,” Portnoy said in response to the Stern report. “I’m not Stern. But I’m not nobody either.”

We’ll just have to see what the future holds for both SiriusXM and Barstool, and if a deal can be salvaged.
