An IRL streamer had a close call with a red Corvette while riding their bike on stream.

The car was fleeing from police and came within inches of the cyclist.

LolthuluGaming, who claims to be an indie game fanatic and avid cyclist, was casually pedaling down the road when a loud engine could be heard revving behind him.

The Corvette zoomed past with smoke flying from its tires as a stunned Lolthulu tries to process what just happened.

Sirens could be heard closing in and Lolthulu went over to the sidewalk to give them space to pass.

Although it may not be the same event, local police reports from the same area of the streamer indicated that a red Corvette was stolen at gunpoint that day.

The Corvette crashed three times and was chased by police through two different cities. Despite hitting three different cars and almost a live streamer, no injuries were reported.

The suspect fled on foot after crashing the Corvette beyond working condition and was caught shortly after.

Local police have not released the identity of the suspect as the investigation is still ongoing.

Joe Rogan has been forced to cancel the next week of guests lined up for his podcast, including superstar Kanye West, after one of the host’s staff member returned a positive test result meaning the team must now isolate.

The Joe Rogan Experience is one of the most popular podcasts in the world listened to by millions of people each week, but the next slate of episodes has hit a major snag.

On Oct. 19, Rogan announced on Instagram that the show would be cancelling all the podcasts for the upcoming week after Jamie Vernon, the producer of the show, tested positive forcing the rest of the cast to self-isolate.

“Young Jamie Vernon tested positive today. I tested negative, the rest of the staff tested negative, but Jamie tested positive,” Rogan revealed in the video. “He thought he had a sinus infection or allergies. The episodes that aired last week we had previously recorded so I hadn’t seen Jamie in about nine days.”

Despite testing positive the former Fear-Factor host assured everyone his tech wizard was on the mend, but added he and the rest of his staff would be cancelling shows for safety reasons for the next week.

“So, we cancelled all the shows. We’re happy he has a mild case, but we cancelled all the shows. I’m keeping away from everybody and testing myself and the staff everyday until we’re in the clear, there’s nothing we can do,” the podcaster added. “I won’t know when we’ll do them [podcasts] again until we get a clear from the doctor. I think it’s ten days and three negative test results in a row.”

Sadly, this means fans will miss out on the highly-anticipated show featuring Kanye West, who was scheduled as a guest for the Friday, October 23 program.

Rogan didn’t completely rule out having the podcast in some form or another though, adding that he was looking into doing shows remotely or some shows with a substitute producer (which he wasn’t too keen on).

After offering apologies to all of the guests and fans affected by the news, the host summed it up as a “f***ed up situation,” but it will be interesting to see how they actually go about producing the show, and if they can still get Yeezy on.
