KSI: YouTuber turned his hamster into an internet star
KSI and his hamsters: Hardly any other content creator was able to generate as many subscribers on YouTube as KSI. The 28-year-old started his career with FIFA but switched to real life content and has also made a name for himself in the boxing and music industries. Always by his side, hamster Morpheus.
While the corona pandemic was at its peak so far, KSI got a new pet. The choice fell on a little hamster named Morpheus, named after actor Martin Fishburne’s role in the Matrix. In his YouTube videos, KSI filmed many funny moments with his hamster. So he let Morpheus race through the apartment like a racing driver in a toy car.
A few months ago, however, KSI and Morpheus parted ways. After breaking up with his ex-girlfriend, she took the hamster with her. Perhaps the pain of separation was too great for the little rodent. Morpheus died in his cage. KSI mourns just like its fan community. Now the hamster was buried as part of a church burial. Twitch streamer MontanaBlack also has a heart for animals, as he proved in a recent video.
KSI: YouTuber’s hamster buried in church – funeral via helium balloon goes wrong
Church burial for hamsters: That Morpheus wasn’t just any hamster should have been obvious to most people by now. For the pet of the YouTuber and rapper KSI there was now a church funeral in London. The whole thing was staged by KSI’s longtime friend and fellow YouTuber Calfreezy.
At the beginning of the funeral service, Morpheus’ coffin was carried into the church. Unfortunately, one of the pallbearers tripped and Morpheus’ body fell to the church floor. Quickly picked up the rodent, the burial could begin. Morpheus’ closest confidants gave a speech and recalled the most beautiful moments of the rodent.
However, some macabre jokes could not be suppressed. Morpheus was often called a rat. A denunciation that hopefully will not reach the hamster in the afterlife. A video of KSI’s pet moments followed on the big screen. There was a cheerful atmosphere in the church. It seemed like the spirit of Morpheus lifted the spirits of the mourners to a positive level.
Gates to heaven remain closed: Finally, Morpheus should find his way to the sky with a series of helium balloons. However, there was a serious faux pas. The hamster’s body was simply too heavy. The balloons always landed on the ground. A trip to heaven was thus denied to KSI’s pet.
resolution of the video: The event was actually just a macabre joke. The hamster’s real body was not found at the staged burial. KSI took it all with humor. It was different with the German streamer Unge. The death of his dog affected him enormously.
