IShowSpeed treated by paramedics after Elephant toothpaste experiment spectacularly fails

IShowSpeed treated by paramedics after Elephant toothpaste experiment spectacularly fails

The YouTuber is known for his racy stunts; we doubt he knew his most recent video would land him in this much trouble.

IShowSpeed has been treated by paramedics after the ‘elephant toothpaste’ experiment went terribly wrong.

IShowSpeed but apparently not much brains..

For those of you playing at home, elephant toothpaste involves mixing hydrogen peroxide, potassium iodide, and dish soap in a bottle, causing a chemical reaction that produces a large amount of foam.

The big foamy explosion is made to look like, you guessed it, toothpaste.

While IShowSpeed is known for his racy stunts, we doubt he knew his most recent video would land him in this much hot water.


The now-viral video shows the influencer partaking in the risky experience, pouring chemicals before the room quickly fills with smoke and is saturated with fumes.

The famous content creator says, ‘I can’t breathe’ as he appears visibly disorientated.

IShowSpeed begins waving his arms in an attempt to clear the smoke.

Dextero reported that following the experiment, the YouTuber had emergency services arrive at his house.

The message in the YouTube chat from the official account notified fans: “Speed is currently with the firefighters. They're giving him oxygen so he can breathe. He should be fine guys."

The video left many stunned, with many calling out the influencer for conducting the dangerous prank purely for views.

One user wrote: “Why is he risking his life for content.”

Another said: “What is elephant toothpaste? Im surprised he is even alive just in general. He spends his whole entire life living on the edge.”

A third joked: “IShowSpeed, yet you can’t run to the hospital.”

While another commented: “Bro made sure to stand there in front of the camera for way too long. Clout kills. Get a job.”

The YouTuber recently made headlines (yet again) after he met his longtime hero, Cristiano Ronaldo.

After Portugal's 3-0 victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina in their European Championship qualifier, the devoted fan finally got his wish to meet the football player.

While waiting at the stadium, the YouTuber bided his time until Ronaldo was heading out of the venue, with IShowSpeed begging for a picture.

The athlete's car stopped, with the YouTuber shook when Cristiano Ronaldo himself stepped out for a hug and a small chat.

He fell to his knees with his arms outstretched in worship and kept telling the football legend 'I love you'.

He even got Ronaldo to do his famous 'siu' celebration before the star jetted.

IShowSpeed then turned to the camera, collapsing against a wall and repeating the phrases 'I finally did it bro'.
