An IRL Twitch streamer, robcdee, got more than he bargained for during an out-and-about broadcast in Tokyo, as a convoy of incredible vehicles passed by him in the city center.

IRL (in-real-life) streaming brings both the very best and worst of random encounters and situations live to viewers, primarily on Amazon-owned Twitch.

Robcdee, an “English born, Australian raised” streamer living in Japan, can often be found broadcasting his activities walking through the country, primarily in Tokyo, the country’s densely populated capital city.

There appears to be a growing low-rider trend in Tokyo.

In such a populous city, there’s no end of weird and wonderful content to be broadcasted, with many of the people quite happy to be on camera and entertain viewers.

This is best exemplified when robcdee is meeting strangers. When simply standing on the sidewalk waiting to cross, a barrage of expensive and eccentric vehicles came past, all captured on camera.

First was a matted-out Lamborghini Aventador, but that was only the start, as it was followed by an old school Toyota with lots of aftermarket work. Then came a muscle car of some description flashing past, topped off by the most bizarre of them all – as the fourth car, fitted with hydraulic suspension, pulled a three-wheeler as it made the turn.

This was followed by another, as both cars looked like they had been plucked straight from the Boyz in the Hood set.

Another few of these Chevrolet Impala type cars were also spotted, again fitted with hydraulics.

Like other major cities, Tokyo has more than its fair share of supercar enthusiasts, with Ferraris, McLarens and Lambos around every corner. But these muscle car types are another niche altogether, perhaps a growing trend in the city.

However, muscle cars and hydraulic suspension are not the only western import to have been embraced by the Japanese. In another clip, robcdee is greeted by a rather squeaky pick-up, which almost looks like a transformer as it lifts its trunk space up and down.

This still might not be the most bizarre car of the stream though. At the same intersection, a car that initially sounded like the police turned out to be a classic 30’s style motor, with a meaty sounding exhaust.

“That’s not a cop car at all,” Rob exclaimed as it whizzed by.

The streamer certainly got more than he bargained for on this night trip around the city, and any car enthusiasts on Twitch may want to check out his channel if they’re into exotic car spotting.

Popular content creator and FaZe Clan member Brian ‘Rug’ Awadis was left stunned after his girlfriend Kaelyn and cousin Anthony “destroyed” his Mercedes G Wagon before surprising him with his dream car, a new Rolls Royce Phantom 8.

Since he first started with Call of Duty trickshot videos, FaZe Rug has gone on to build a massive online following, with over 17 million subscribers following his main channel for his entertaining vlogs.

The YouTuber is best known for his hilarious prank videos, but during his latest upload, he was finally the victim of one of these cruel pranks.

Rug’s Mercedes G Wagon was “destroyed” during his latest prank video.

In his October 27 video, Rug’s girlfriend Kaelyn and cousin Anthony decided to prank the content creator while he was inside a store, shopping and filming for one of his upcoming food vlogs.

Shortly after he walked into the store, Kaelyn and Anthony went straight for his car in the parking lot, “destroying” the G Wagon by tagging it with different drawings and insults, before hiding nearby to catch his reaction.

After the content creator eventually left the store and realized what had happened, he was devastated by the damage that had been done to his car, “we come out and my car has paint on it, this is actually not okay.”

However, after quickly realizing that the paint on his car could be washed off, Rug went back to his house where a brand new Rolls Royce Phantom 8 was parked in his driveway.

After being surprised by Kaelyn and Anthony, who confirmed they were the ones who vandalized his G Wagon, Rug revealed that the Arctic White Rolls Royce Phantom, which costs $450,000 for a base model at retail, was actually his “dream car.”

Unfortunately for the FaZe star, the excitement from the surprise did not last too long after his girlfriend explained that it was, in fact, a “double prank” and that the new Rolls Royce wasn’t his to keep.

Although he couldn’t keep the car, Rug still remained hopeful about getting a Phantom for himself in the future and revealed that the devastating prank had inspired him to get his revenge.
