Popular Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel was left stunned when his speedrun attempt in Minecraft came to an end. The former Overwatch pro made a classic mistake during a practice session that had his character exploding into pieces. 

With millions of followers, xQc continues to be one of the top faces on Twitch. The Canadian’s variety streams and explosive personality bring in thousands of viewers each time he goes live.

The former Overwatch pro however ran into trouble during his September 24 broadcast, when he made a mistake that ended his practice run in Minecraft as soon as it started.

The streamer decided to speedrun Minecraft for his 69k viewers, promising them subs if he could beat the game in a certain amount of time. However an hour in, his character died while fighting the Ender Dragon.

The Twitch star respawned the battle to try again, however his practice run quickly went up in flames when he accidentally dropped a bed down and slept in it.

Beds explode in the Nether when a player sleeps, which he did by accident. Stunned, he then shook it off and reloaded the battle again. Lengyel’s chat burst into laughter, calling it a “speed-run” record.

After the Ender Dragon spawned a second time, xQc got another chance to try out his strategy. Placing the bed down under the Dragon, he then clicked sleep and it exploded on the beast.

Only problem is, he was too close to the blast and it sent him flying up in the air and to his death. “So how do you make it not hit you? Chat, how do you make it not hit you?!” he asked his viewers.

All mistakes aside, using a bed item against the Ender Dragon is a pretty common strategy. xQc eventually got the hang of it, and quickly took the creature’s health down quickly, before ending the speedrun to play Among Us.

The popular Twitch star promised his audience that he would attempt another speedrun – hopefully this time he won’t run into any explosions. If nothing else, his 60 minute time is actually pretty decent, considering he doesn’t play the title full time.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
