Keeping your words while doing live-stream videos are okay, but maybe not always and in every circumstance. While online gaming stream is a big hit on the internet today, there are times when YouTubers seem to ignore to calculate what could be the repercussions of their actions, especially, when it comes to accepting a dare from followers. Case in point: YouTuber Shin Tae Il who set his crotch on fire during a live stream gaming video. Why? According to media reports, one of his viewers suggested a penalty for the YouTuber, which was to set his private area on fire for a few seconds, if he does not come in first place in the videogame, ‘Fall Guys.’ He could not come in the first place and ‘kept his words.’ At the end of the live-steaming video, the South Korean YouTuber can be seen setting his genitals on fire and yelling out in pain. He suffered from second-degree burn, and the video of his act live on camera has gone viral on the internet.
