How about a refreshing Hawaiian Punch — on tap?
YouTuber David Dobrik has a brand new $9.5 million house in Los Angeles with a sweet perk: A Hawaiian punch fountain.
“This is my favorite part of the entire house… It’s a water fountain like you get at school, but instead of water, check it out —” the 24-year-old says in a video as he slurps red fruit punch flowing from the fountain. “It’s fruit punch. It’s freaking ridiculous!”
The Gen-Z prankster said the idea came from the 2002 Adam Sandler movie “Mr. Deeds” about a man who inherits a lavish fortune — including a mansion with one Hawaiian Punch fountain.
Apparently, the movie left an impression.
“This is from the movie Mr. Deeds. I’ve always wanted one,” said Dobrik, who was the fifth-most viewed YouTuber in 2019 with 2.4 billion views, according to YouTube Rewind 2019.
The six-bedroom, seven-bathroom house also has a 300-bottle wine room, a movie theater, a jukebox, a pool table, three fireplaces, artistic sculptures, murals and an Iron Man suit. Neon signs around the house say phrases like “Proud but not satisfied.” The 0.6-acre yard includes a basketball court, an infinity pool and a two-seated swing deck, the listing shows.

One important addition to the home is a TV-ready podcasting and vlogging studio with blue-lit “Views” signs, geometric back-lit wall tiles and wooden bookshelves.
Dobrik paused making content at the start of the pandemic, but he decided to design a space that could safely accommodate guests for the show. Everyone who enters the space is COVID tested, and he plans to start posting on YouTube at least once a week, starting with a new Halsey interview, he said in the video.

Dobrik purchased the house at a 20% discount in August 2020, and he got to work on customizing the space — for instance, with a fruit punch fountain. His friends and assistants, Taylor Hudson and Ella D’Souza, helped him customize the house, and in return, he surprised them with a new Mercedes and a new Audi on camera in the house’s 12-car parking area.
The YouTuber, who also has 25.5 million subscribers on TikTok, first rose to fame as a Vine star in 2013 and now has a combined 27.35 million subscribers on his primary and secondary YouTube channels, where he became known for his vlog.
“Wait, this is the house you can afford after you quit vlogging? What could you afford if you kept vlogging… Puerto Rico? This is the house that a guy gets and says, ‘I’ll show that b – – ches,’ ” says Dobrik’s friend, Drake & Josh actor Josh Peck, in the video.
