Friend Request - Mission Details:

Michael goes to visit Lester at their house, a friend from his past. Michael needs his help in carrying out a heist to pay back the $2,500,000 he owes Martin Madrazo. However, in order to help Michael, Lester wants Michael to do something for him first.

Whilst talking, Lester gets an Eyefinder alert about Jay Norris and gets visibly annoyed. He throws a backpack at Michael and tells him to go buy something "youthful". Despite a lack of knowledge of what he has to do, Michael still heads to a Suburban store in Vinewood.

After purchasing a new outfit, Michael calls Lester and he runs him through what he has to do. Lester tells him to find a prototype of a new product Lifeinvader is working on in their office's and fit it with a device that is in the backpack Lester gave him.

Michael hangs around the door of the building until an employee called Rickie comes out for his cigarette break. He lets Michael in the building but mistakes him for an IT temp. He tasks Michael with removing a bunch of pop-ups that won't disappear from his computer.

Once done, Rickie innocently tells Michael that the prototype is in the demo room, without knowing what Michael has planned. Michael heads to the room, rigs the prototype and leaves the building. Michael calls Lester to say the job is done and heads home to watch the prototypes keynote.

During the keynote, Jay Norris shows off the new prototype, the Lifeinvader mobile device. Michael calls the device from his phone. When Jay picks it up and pulls it to his ear, the phone explodes, killing Jay instantly.
