==Mission==
In debt for destroying Martin's friend's deck, Michael goes to an old friend called Lester. Upon getting to his doorstep, he notices a security camera is aimed at him, causing him to flip the birds and asks to be let in. After being let in, Lester retrieves an alert about [[Lifeinvader]] founder, [[Jay Norris]]. He throws Michael a backpack, containing a device, and ask him to buy some "youthful" clothing at [[SubUrban]]. After this, Lester gives him instructions to infiltrate the Lifeinvader offices and place the device in their latest prototype phone.

Friend Request is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V given by Lester Crest to protagonist Michael De Santa.

MissionEdit

In debt for destroying Martin's mistress's deck, Michael goes to an old friend named Lester Crest. Upon getting to his doorstep, he notices a security camera is aimed at him, causing him to flip Lester off and asks to be let in. After being let in, the two old friends catch up a bit before Lester retrieves an alert about Lifeinvader founder, Jay Norris. He throws Michael a backpack, containing an explosive device, and asks him to buy some "youthful" clothing at SubUrban. After this, Lester gives him instructions to infiltrate the Lifeinvader offices and place the device in their latest prototype phone.

Once at the Lifeinvader offices, Michael waits at the back entrance as an employee walks outside for a smoke and lets him in. He mistakenly assumes Michael is a tech support agent and asks Michael to resolve the endless spam mail on his computer (mostly because of not running anti-virus software). After this is done, Michael finds the prototype, plants the explosive, and leaves.

Lester then instructs Michael to head home and watch Norris's reveal of the prototype on TV. When he gets home, he kicks Tracey - who was watching Fame or Shame - out of the lounge, and turns it to Weazel News. Waiting until Norris actually reveals the phone, Michael rings the phone using his own. Once Norris answers, confused at the unexpected call, the phone explodes and kills him instantly as the crowd flees in horror, and an official waves the camera crew to make an emergency broadcast ending.
