However in his next update, he got excited after he discovered a fan wearing sweatpants from his ‘clickbait’ collection. The viewer had not noticed him, and walked by him.

He then decided to make a clip about surprising him. “My next story is going to be me walking by a guy who’s wearing my merch and he has no idea that I’m filming him,” he said.

In the next video, Dobrik hilariously walked by the man and began to film around him. But surprisingly, the viewer kept on walking completely oblivious to the star recording.

“He doesn’t even know. He walked on by me. He’s wearing my sweatpants!” he laughed. He then walked in front of the fan and shocked him. “Oh s**t. HOLY F**K!” he exclaimed upon seeing the YouTuber.

Laughing, Dobrik said to the man “What’s up how are you? You walked right by me!” Still stunned the viewer said “What?!” The YouTube star turned the camera around on himself and said “I look different with my glasses on.”

If nothing else, these clips prove that no matter how famous someone is, even their fans can fail to notice them in public. Dobrik took the whole thing in stride, and found it hilarious.

A Pokemon GO player’s livestream was interrupted when a mugger robbed them in front of viewers. The Trainer’s phone and car were stolen during the broadcast.

Pokemon GO took the world by storm in 2016, as players from all over ventured outside of their homes to catch their favorite monsters. The mobile title developed by Niantic brought the beloved Nintendo RPG to real life for millions.

Unfortunately, because the game takes place in the real world, unexpected things can happen – from fans assaulting each other over Gyms, to even murder. On October 8, a streamer’s broadcast quickly turned violent after they were mugged, much to the horror of their audience.

While there is no video of the incident, viewers tuning it could hear the audio of the terrifying moment. “Whoa dude, I’m live! I’m live! I don’t got nothing. I don’t have anything!” the 23-year old told the assailant.

The thief can be heard telling the Pokemon fan “The f**k wrong with you?!” after they tried to resist the theft. The GO stream then cut off after the criminal stole the player’s phone.

The thieves could be heard talking on the stream after multiple attempts to unlock the victim’s phone. “We got to get up through here really quick. Come on. We got his vape, his car keys, let’s get the whip, right,” they said.

It wasn’t long before the criminals realized that the phone was still broadcasting live. “He was going live? Why does he got so many goddamn portable chargers?” they said, before taking off with the stolen items.

According to Reddit, a police investigation is now underway. At the time of writing, the individuals have not yet been found or arrested. Based on the audio, it appears that the streamer was mugged by four individuals.

This story is sadly another example of how unpredictable the real world can actually be. And unfortunately, that means even players trying to enjoy Pokemon GO outside can sometimes get caught up in some scary situations.
