Twitch streamer Eric ‘Erobb’ Robbins was ‘attacked’ by a gorilla during his Halloween stream, who hijacked his stream in a hilarious skit.
Those who have regularly tuned into Erobbs streams over the past few years are well accustomed to see him wrestling with his friends, but things took a different turn on October 31 when he squared off one of nature’s greatest creatures – or at least what looked like one anyway.
A 'gorilla' bounded into the room and grabbed Erobb, grunting and beating its chest, but of course, it wasn’t the true king of the jungle, but rather someone in a costume who launched the hilarious attack on the streamer.
After deciding not to appear on TrainwrecksTV’s podcast, Erobb was chilling with his chat during his 24-hour livestream, when a roar from the door behind him made him jump, as the streamer in a gorilla suit stormed into the room and started pounding the bed.
Seconds later, the ‘gorilla’ had his arms around the head of Erobb, trailing him out of the chair and onto the floor before beating his chest in celebration, sprinting out the door before the 23-year-old could enact any revenge of his own.
The assailant didn't remove his mask, but viewers and Erobb himself joked that it was Trainwrecks, exacting some vengeance of his own for the spurned podcast invitation.
As it turned out though, it was actually Dareon, who often appears in Erobb's streams, eventually returning to the scene of the crime to show off his costume and celebrate his prank, walking in shouting "Ape Gang," a reference to TrainwrecksTV.
Viewers who watch out Erobb’s Twitch streams regularly are always well entertained by his hilarious mishaps, including a clip from October when the streamer suffered three hilarious fails in less than 30 seconds, much to the delight of his chat.
Whether the streamer will try and get Dareon back for the incident remains to be seen, but perhaps he should keep his eye out for Erobb-shaped animals creeping up behind him for the foreseeable future.
