During a live music stream on Twitch by the band ‘Halocene’, the performance was brought to a halt after an unexpected interruption left the guitarist screaming in fear.

One of the thrills of seeing a band perform at a concert is the unpredictability of live performances where the ‘anything can happen’ atmosphere brings fans an unforgettable experience.

Some musicians have taken to Twitch to stream their sets instead, and during a stream on September 4, things took a hilarious turn for the band Halocene when the guitarist was disrupted right has he was getting into the groove. 

Attacked by a falling object

While covering a song by Bruno Mars, Halocene’s performance came to a stop when their guitar player was given the shock of his life.

Seemingly out of nowhere, a soundproof cover they had on the window to block out the sun came crashing down on the musician which left him screaming. 

“Ahhh Jesus Christ!” he shrieked, as the unexpected object completely startled him. The singer tried to stop it from falling, but it was too late, as the guitar player threw off his headphones and dropped his instrument in shock.

After the musician scrambled across the room, he stood up and yelled “It scared the shit out of me! Oh my god!”

The moment was made all the more hilarious by his band mates’ reaction, as the multi camera stream captured their expressions in the moment. The drummer immediately broke down laughing at the guitarist’s scrambling for safety.

While catching his breath, the guitarist realized what had scared him, and was disappointed after he had worked for hours on soundproofing the room. “Oh my god! You know how long that took to build!?” he exclaimed.

The rest of the band couldn’t stop laughing, as the musician explained why he was so scared. “That scared the shit out of me. I had no idea what that even was. This thing was just on me. It was like soft, or like a monster!” 

“Oh god, now this is all falling apart. Jesus Christ” he finished, after examining what had dropped on him more closely.

Borat is one of the most iconic characters in the world, and now the Kazakh journalist is set to make his first appearance on Twitch tomorrow where he will ‘face off’ against DrLupo; here’s how to watch.

Borat is more than a national treasure to Kazakhstan. He’s a global icon and one of the funniest characters in the world.

Sacha Baron Cohen first slipped into the Borat persona back in the nineties. But although he appeared in several hilarious skits and cameos, he didn’t explode in popularity until 2006, when the feature-film ‘Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan’ released worldwide.

For those who haven’t seen it, it’s a mockumentary that revolves around unscripted real-life interactions. Sacha Baron Cohen pretends to be Borat, a journalist from Kazakhstan. He travels around the US to learn more about their culture.

But he purposefully presses their buttons and puts them in hilarious situations. He winds up people from all walks of life, which sometimes lands him in hot water.

Borat debuts the infamous ‘mankini’ at 2006 Cannes Film Festival.

Fortunately, we’re lucky enough to experience it all over again with the imminent release of the sequel, ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.’

Seth Rogen claims he has already seen it around six times and said he “can’t wait to watch it a seventh.” He described it as “crazy and wonderful” and believes it has “a few of the funniest scenes [he’s] ever seen in a movie.”

But that’s not all. To promote the movie, Twitch announced that Borat will make his first-ever appearance on their platform.

“For the first time ever, Kazakhstan’s biggest gamer will go live on Twitch,” the Amazon-owned platform announced on Oct. 20. “Very nice.” The best part is, he will ‘face off’ against DrLupo “in a battle for global supremacy.”

The stream goes live on October 20 at 3 pm PT. If you want to know where and how you can watch it, we’ve got you covered.

How to watch Borat stream on Twitch

  • First, you’ll obviously need to wait until the time is right. However, it’s a good idea to tune in a little earlier as most streamers kick things off with a ten-minute countdown.
  • Then, all you need to do is tune in to DrLupo’s Twitch channel, which can be found here.
  • From that point onwards, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

There has been no official word on what games they’ll play. DrLupo has been dabbling in a bit of everything lately, from 7 Days To Die and Escape From Tarkov to Genshin Impact. Maybe even a bit of Among Us might be on the cards.

Of course, it’ll depend on what games Borat has available. For all we know, he might be an absolute machine on Call of Duty: Warzone or League of Legends. But we’re not counting on it.

Either way, the stream is going to be a blast, and we can’t wait until it goes live.
