Popular YouTube comedian Jack ‘JaackMaate’ Dean revealed a sneaky prank where he got Love Island contestants Sherif & Ollie Williams to promote his channel by shouting out a fake product.

JaackMate is one of the most popular YouTubers in the UK with over 1.2 million subscribers. He is known for his comedic videos, as well as his Happy Hour Podcast which has featured guests such as musician Example, KSI, True Geordie, and more.

Fans of the personality know his love-hate relationship with British reality show Love Island, and during his May 11 upload, he got the last laugh by pranking some of the show’s most notorious participants.

In his latest video, the British star revealed he had tricked participants Sherif and Ollie Williams into promoting a fake product. Using Johnson’s Baby Lotion, he created a “luxury cosmetic” called ‘JAQmaite’ moisturizing cream.

The comedian explained he had spent two months running a Twitter account for his fake beauty brand. Making it seem further legitimate, he hilariously got fellow YouTuber and influencer Harmony Nice to make a testimonial video for his bogus website.

Jack didn’t stop there – he even created a whole back catalog of fictional products, including hairspray and a bath bomb with the joke description “the most powerful bomb since Hiroshima” – oof.

The British YouTuber used baby lotion to make his “luxury” cosmetic.

The British star then sent out offers to past LI contestants to promote the product. Sherif was the first to respond, and made a video describing how wonderful the cream was and how it was ‘unisex’. “It’s rare for me to encounter a cream that doesn’t clog up my pores,” the reality star exclaimed.

The YouTube star broke into laughter, stunned that he actually read their instructions. “I literally can’t believe we got him to describe our moisturizer as unisex! Sorry, but has there ever been a moisturizer that isn’t unisex?”

Months later, Jack finally got Ollie Williams to respond and take the deal. On April 19, he uploaded his testimony of the product, stating, “Really, really quality stuff. Makes my skin feel amazing!” The comedian laughed and said “Thank you, Ollie! I love JaackMaate too!”

The YouTuber has notoriously mocked the reality show on his channel, pulling in millions of views by roasting past seasons. The personality comically summed up the program as “a TV show in which a load of supposed s**y singletons are thrown into a villa to see if they will mate.”

Despite not getting everyone he wanted to, the comedian managed to nab two of the program’s most infamous contestants. If nothing else, the video is an eye-opening reminder that not all sponsored products are actually even tried by those promoting them.

A number of TikTok stars have hit out at paparazzi, asking them to stop “stalking” Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson after a video of them at the airport was uploaded to YouTube. 

With the success of TikTok around the globe, a number of creators like Charli and Dixie D’Amelio, Addison Rae, and Bryce Hall have become stars thanks to their viral videos. 

However, the fame and popularity that social media brings, fans want to know more. They’re desperate for updates on relationships, where their favorite stars are living, and how they’re getting on away from the TikTok videos. 

Many of TikTok’s stars will conduct interviews with paparazzi and other media outlets on a regular basis, but one has come under fire from TikTokjers for apparently “stalking” Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s biggest star, and garners the most attention.

Kevin Wong posted a video of Charli and Chase reuniting at LAX. However, it didn’t go down well with some of the pair’s fellow TikTok stars. 

“You’re taking stalking to a new level. Give them some privacy,” Hype House founder Thomas Petrou said. He also added a simple message, asking Wong to stop as well. 

Additionally, Mia Haywood and Bryant Eslava posted similar messages as Petrou. “Did you really follow them to the airport? Chill with that,” said Mia. “Damn, this is too far Kevin,” added Bryant.

Wong responded with a comment of his own, claiming that he was already at the airport waiting for somebody else, and hadn’t actually followed the D’Amelio’s anywhere. 

“I was already at LAX waiting for someone to show up, then I saw a big white Rolls Royce drive around and saw Mr D’Amelio & Charli,” he said. 

Neither of Charli or Chase have responded to the drama themselves, and it might just be a case of others fighting the battle for them. 

We’ll just have to wait and see if any similar responses come up in the future, or if the pair decide to respond themselves.
