YouTube “star” has his ridiculous gold wrapped BMW smashed with a baseball bat during a photo shoot in New York whilst blocking traffic
Though he has 2.7 million subscribers to his feed on YouTube and 201,000 followers on Instagram, New Yorker Coby Persin is someone most of our readers will unlikely ever heard. He likes showing off his “ripped abs”, pretending he is the reincarnation of Zac Efron and making videos where he shows girls to be “ultimate gold diggers”, but yesterday he shared a video of himself getting a dose of his own medicine (or simply performing a stunt to get more followers for his pretentious self).
In a 41 second clip, Persin was filmed with his hideous gold wrapped BMW in New York doing what he describes as “a quick photo shoot to get some cool pictures” whilst inconsiderately blocking a lane of traffic. Posing like the true prat he plainly is, this “YouTube star” is then interrupted by a man with a baseball bat who proceeds to smash the vehicle and then walk off.
Though Persin is now offering a reward of £806 ($1,000 or €944 or درهم3,700) for the arrest of the man concerned, most in the media simply decided to mock him. Of him, for example, Jack Moore of GQ remarked:
“[Coby Persin] stopped traffic so he could take some douchey pictures with his douchey car. And then New York City did its magical thing and made a perfect, brilliant, beautiful moment happen”.
“Now, sure, the ‘law’ might say that he ‘damaged property’ or ‘wielded a baseball bat like a maniac’ but that’s looking at this the wrong way. (Maybe it’s even a stunt?) But I’d argue that this is New York City at its best. I mean that dude HAS A BAT WITH HIM IN HIS CAR AT ALL TIMES. And that decision paid off, because he was there to remind this guy that the city doesn’t care if you have a fancy car. You f**k with people trying to get where they need to go and they will f**k with you right back”.
