YouTube star KSI and Sidemen spotted hand-feeding tigers at a Hertfordshire Zoo – as the group film a ‘hide and seek’ video around the wildlife park
- KSI has been spotted hand-feeding a tiger at a Hertfordshire wildlife park
- The YouTube sensation was filming a video with the Sidemen around the zoo
- This week he and Logan Paul’s drinks brand PRIME agreed a deal with Barcelona
The group were filming a ‘hide and seek’ video at the Paradise Wildlife Park in Broxbourne, which was aired on Sunday and has already amassed three million views on the streaming platform.
In the clip, the group are seen feeding tigers at the zoo through a metal cage with their hands, with KSI, who was also seen dressed in a lobster outfit during the video, stepping up to feed the enormous animal.
It comes as the boxer’s isotonic sports drinks company, PRIME, was unveiled as Barcelona’s new official hydration partner for the next three years.
The 30-year-old, who controversially defeated Joe Fournier in May, teamed up with his long standing rival Logan Paul to create the drinks brand, which has become one of the most popular brands throughout the UK and US.

They have also worked in partnership with Arsenal FC as their official drinks supplier, and while Paul has ventured into the world of WWE wrestling of late, questions mounting over whether KSI could fight Tommy Fury at some point in the future.
While Mail Sport understands negotiations between the fighters have hit a stumbling block, KSI, in the mean time, has been filming content with the Sidemen, who were commended by the Zoo for their respect and willingness to learn about the animals.
A spokesperson from the wildlife park told the BBC: ‘It was a pleasure to welcome the entire Sidemen group and they were incredibly respectful and willing to learn about the animals whilst filming,’ said a spokesman.

‘This has allowed the younger generation to learn about the protection and conservation of animals in a new and engaging way.’
The Youtube star was also forced off stage earlier this week during a promotional event for PRIME in Copenhagen.
Fans pelted him and Paul with bottles of the isotonic sports drink but the pair took the incident lightly, appearing to laugh about the situation afterwards.
