YouTuber DailyFunnyMike gave away a brand-new Dodge Challenger after putting some folks through the wringer by seeing who could withstand the most paintball shots before quitting.

Recording a challenge and giving something away on YouTube is a pretty surefire way to find yourself either going viral or building up a huge fan base. Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson might just be the biggest example of that success, giving away everything a few thousand dollars to a cool million by putting his friends and strangers in challenging scenarios.

However, even with that much money on the line, not even Mr Beast has taken it to the levels of DailyFunnyMike, who utilized a paintball gun to deal some incredible pain in a bid to giveaway a $30,000 Dodge Challenger.

In his aptly titled ‘Whoever Takes The Most Paintballs Wins New Car!’ video, the popular YouTuber tasked ten adults with the challenge of withstanding shots.

Some, maybe expectedly, quit after a few shots but there were others who could barely handle the initial blow before bowing out. However, with such a big prize on the line, it was going to take the eventual final contestants to keep going for the long-haul.

Requests of ten and 12 follow-up shots came in from the competitors but with some not wanting to keep up the pace, the host had to interject with a few words of encouragement. “Ain’t no sense in taking ten when you ain’t going to be in the lead,” he said, before putting the focus on the initial leader of the pack – Tookie.

Even though ten contestants started the challenge, they were quickly whittled down to a final two in the form of Tookie and Khalil, prompting DailyFunnyMike to switch things up and put them head-to-head.

With the pair suffering pain from rotating shots, with some even being pelted at their legs, it was Tookie who took home the car as the eventual winner, withstanding an eye-watering total of 108 paintball shots before the threat of stomach shots prompted Khalil to quit.

Even though he quit, it wasn’t like Khalil was going home empty-handed as DailyFunnyMike handed over a few hundred dollars before getting the car settled with Tookie.

What his next, seemingly dastardly challenge and its prize will be, remains to be seen, but it’ll take some going to beat over 100 paintball shots.

A YouTuber revealed that he was able to afford and buy his dream car worth up to $200k just by buying, selling, and covering Pokemon cards – yes, you read that right!

Although the Pokemon TCG made its debut decades ago in 1997, the Nintendo collectibles have seen an absolute explosion in popularity in 2020. Items once traded by children on school playgrounds for practically nothing can now sell for as much as a house.

Dedicated fans that have been covering the hobby for years such as Australian YouTuber Michael ‘UnlistedLeaf’ Anderson have had their passion rewarded with the Trading Card Game’s recent attention. So much so that the content creator was able to buy a luxury car.

While many popular entertainers have been swept up by the Pokemon card craze that has hit in 2020, YouTubers like Unlisted Leaf have been making videos about the hobby since 2013. On December 4, the content creator revealed that he was able to buy his dream car – a Audi R8 V10 Plus – due his love of the Nintendo RPG.

“It is insane to me that years down the line I am able to get one,” he said. “The craziest part about this whole situation is that I really bought this car with, like, Pokemon cards. If we really boil it down.” The entertainer, who also goes by ‘Ando’, then clarified that he didn’t get any money from his parents or a side job – it was purely from covering the Pokemon collectibles.

“It is 110% all with Pokemon cards. That’s the truth. I literally have been making videos around Pokemon cards for about eight years now. I’ve been collecting Pokemon cards for eight years and like selling a few. Then like I buy a lot. Then I sell a couple more,” the Nintendo fan explained.

UnlistedLeaf revealed that Pokemon cards’ recent explosion in value and popularity also played a hand in being able to afford the luxury vehicle. “Especially with the crazy Pokemon card boom recently, I was able to purchase this car.” he revealed, before he thanked his fans for sticking with him as he covered the Nintendo hobby for eight years.

There is no telling if the craze surrounding the TCG will die down anytime soon. With the Japanese franchise gearing up to celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2021, the sky is the limit. Passionate fans who have dedicated their lives to Trading Card Game are finally starting to reap the rewards.
