One IRL streamer and his wife tried their hand at Japan’s famous “gashapon” vending machines – but what the couple received was not what either of them expected.

Streaming duo “EXBC” are a married couple who broadcast their trips around the globe, with their latest travel destination being Osaka, Japan.

As the third largest city in the island country, Osaka boasts a rich history and bustling nightlife – but EXBC got distracted with another phenomenon that spans throughout Japan, rather than a particular historical landmark.

Pedro Szekely, FlickrOsaka is a historic city known for its landmarks and bustling nightlife.

“Gashapon” machines, or popular toy-based vending machines, are found all across the country, peddling a variety of items like action figures, keychains, and other such merchandise.

However, some of these gashapons can get a bit inappropriate, as evidenced by EXBC’s experience.

EXCBTV, InstagramEXCB are a husband and wife streaming duo, who came across an unusual vending machine in Japan.

Heosu, wife of fellow streamer Esco, tested her luck with one of Osaka’s gashapon machines – and ended up with an unexpected surprise, as the item inside the capsule turned out to be a pair of panties.

“Oh sh**! Panties?” Heosu exclaimed, unwrapping the package to reveal a neon orange thong. “Oh yeah, orange!”

As if getting an actual thong in a vending machine wasn’t odd enough, she went on to sniff the undergarment, giving it to her husband as a humorous “gift” – who also gave them a sniff for good measure.

Despite the seemingly random nature of such an occurrence, this isn’t completely unusual in Japan: in fact, the country boasted a “used panty” vending machine boom in the mid-nineties, although it’s far less likely to run across such gashapons now, as the practice was quickly culled by authorities.

While selling used panties is now illegal, coming across a machine that sells “artificially used” or “prepared” panties isn’t completely impossible, as EXCB illustrated – but don’t expect to run into any of these machines during your usual outings there.

Freepik.comThe fabled “used panty” vending machines of Japan no longer exist – but you can find some unused panty gashapons if you look hard enough.

While many IRL streams capture unexpected moments in real time, EXCB’s vending-machine antics take the proverbial cake in a site filled with crazy and unanticipated clips from all manner of shenanigans.

Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
