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.

TikTok star Nikita Crump has managed to pull off the incredible feat of living in her car, a 2012 Honda Civic, for over one year. Now, she has explained how she was able to pull it off in a new YouTube video.

Crump’s journey began in a video first uploaded on November 3, 2019 where she explained how she officially told her landlord she would be moving out of her home and into her car.

According to Crump, this wasn’t some impromptu decision and she had been spending a few months actively thinking about it before taking the plunge.

Nikita has been living in her car for over a year.

Despite having a nice house with affordable rent and good roommates, she felt moving into her car was something she “had to do.”

Since then, she has successfully spent a whole year living in her car and marked the anniversary of her first night by explaining how she is able to stay cool or warm at night.

In the backseat of her car, the YouTuber keeps a pillow and too fuzzy blankets which she uses to cover herself up.

Along with her sweatpants and sweatshirt, she is able to stay warm even in the winter months. However, occasionally she has to put a jacket on if it’s ever especially cold outside.

“In Northern California, a lot of the warmer days are still cool nights, so I’m fortunate that most nights throughout the year are totally bearable, but there’s totally been the occasion where it is hot, I am sweating and I wear as minimal clothing as I can,” she explained.

Luckily, she also has a rechargeable fan which can help her get through the night if need be despite only staying charged for one day.

In addition to just staying cool, the TikTok sensation also revealed she showers at the gym and keeps plenty of personal hygiene products inside her bag including shampoo, toothpaste, and deodorant to name a few.

Now, Crump is hitting the road and embarking on a two-month-long trip around the United States where she’ll be documenting her experiences.

The entertainer’s decision to live in her car has paid dividends, as she currently has over one million followers on TikTok.
