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.

Logan Paul debuts Impaulsive podcast studio’s classy new look

Logan Paul rounded out the first month of 2021 by revealing a brand new studio and backdrop for his Impaulsive podcast that could be even more expensive than the last one.

Logan started Impaulsive back in 2018 with his cohost and partner-in-crime Mike Majlak, and it’s become one of the most popular podcasts in the world ever since.

You might not think a nice set is that important if you just listen to a show’s audio like many people do, but if you’re a creator and want to live stream YouTube videos from it, you better believe a sleek setup is all but required.

The elder Paul brother knows his way around the internet and is well-aware of this fact, so he transformed his old set into a sort of 70s-style podcasting dojo for 2021.

The old studio served Logan and the gang well, but it was time to make a change.

From the start, the show has used the same set and backdrop — which cost Paul around $90,000 back when he got things going. But, after more than two years of use, it was apparently time for a change.

The Impaulsive logo is still in the same spot on the wall, along with the TV.  But now, the entire room has been covered in what looks like wood paneling, along with the desk in the middle.

Tying it all together are new designs on the ceiling that make the whole thing feel much warmer and cozier than the previous set – sort of a podcasting ski lodge, if you want to look at it that way.

If the original set was $90K, you have to wonder what this revamp cost.

Along with revealing a sneak-peek at the new setup, Logan also teased that the first episode of Impaulsive from the new studio would be out on Tuesday, Jan 26, where we can expect plenty of details on how it all came together.

It will be especially interesting to see how much this all actually cost him, seeing as how the original set the YouTube star back $90,000; and from what we know of Paul, he’s not afraid to drop a little cash.
