Full send is among the most popular podcasts out there, and there are many good reasons for that. Founders of the famous hard seltzer Happy Dad The Nelk Boys are all you can ask for in a podcast.
Full Send first launched in 2021 when Kyle Forgeard met up with Jessie Sebestani on an MTV-hosted reality show Careless Teens, at the time both were extremely popular for their Youtube content focusing mainly on pranking people.
Starting off as a prank channel on Youtube the Nelk boys was created by a Canadian friend group who lived a ruthless “Work hard, Play Hard” lifestyle.
As they grew to become more recognized,, the Nelk boys introduced new members to the team including SalimTheDream, and SteveWillDoit, Aron known as Stieny.
The Nelk Boys gained popularity back when pranks were a big thing on Youtube, and one of their most viewed pranks is the Coke prank.
The takeoff of the Nelk Boys, was back in 2015 when they pranked cops, civilians, and more asking them if they want “Coke” and then giving them a can of coca cola.
Just like siblings, we love the Nelk Boys for the wholesome brotherly vibe they put out and their dark sense of humor towards one another.
However, if there is one thing everyone can agree on, it’s that Jessie is needed back on the podcast. Jessie, originally one of the founders has decided to resign as a host, leaving everything in the hands of Kyle.
