YouTuber Puts Up Billboard Of His Friend's Drunken Texts To His Assistant
If you're partial to the occasional drunken text, then you'll know all too well about the crippling embarrassment and regret that can consume you as you nurse a hangover and scroll back in time to assess the damage.
If you're really lucky, the ill-advised messages will stay between you and the recipient; if you're really unlucky, your mate who's a YouTuber will get wind of them and have them printed on a massive billboard.
Toddy Smith falls into the really unlucky category, as his mate David Dobrik - who has 15.7 million subscribers on YouTube - has, you guessed it, publicly shamed him by printing both his face and his drunken texts on a massive billboard.
The texts were sent to David's assistant Natalie Mariduena, who received nine messages without reply while Toddy was out on the razz. Highlights include: 'u break my heart', 'can we please cuddle tomorrow' and 'i'm falling out of love w u, don't worry'.
The next morning, realising the drunken damage he had done, Toddy added: "fml^^^^^^^!!!!!!!#%"
But this fml^^^^^^^!!!!!!!#% feeling will only have increased since, thanks to David's billboard shenanigans.
The 23-year-old shared a few pictures of the prank on Twitter, and the tweet has now been liked 326,000 times.

Being a YouTuber 'n' all, David has also shared a video of the stunt on his channel where it has been viewed more than 5 million times.
So far from being kept as Toddy and Natalie's secret, the texts are now known by millions of people across the world.
In the video, Toddy can be seen reacting to the big billboard reveal just how you might expect - namely by yelling 'Oh my god, what the f***?! Are you kidding me??' and running off in the opposite direction.
Toddy did manage to save a bit of face though, because in the footage he gets his own back on Natalie, revealing she had replied to one of his Instagram stories, saying: "Miss being warm in your arms."
Natalie laughed this accusation off though, insisting she was 'f***ing with him'.
What exactly the full story is here isn't clear, but let this tale serve as a reminder to us all to think twice before pressing send on that drunken text (or think twice before making friends with a YouTuber).
