One IRL Twitch streamer received an unexpected surprise while walking the streets of Tokyo, Japan during a night out on the town, thanks to a kneeling bystander.

Although Twitch is often hailed for the unexpected moments that get caught on stream (such as viewers trolling a backpacker or a man falling through a frozen lake), one broadcaster witnessed a moment that quickly made him turn away.

Japan-based native Australian “robcdee” often shares his nightly excursions with his 15.9k followers on Twitch, getting into various shenanigans and giving viewers a first-hand glimpse of Tokyo’s bustling nightlife scene through his camera lens.

However, one of his nightly walks in the city featured an unintended act of exposure, which unfolded as the streamer was making his way down an alley.

While he walked, robcdee passed a few groups of people standing and speaking, before coming upon a man kneeling on the sidewalk with a few unidentifiable objects in front of him.

Innocently enough, the broadcaster assumed the man to be praying, due to his posture — but it turns out that he wasn’t actually praying, at all.

Instead, the bystander was urinating, which, thankfully, can’t really be seen on camera, but can be assumed due to robcdee’s hilarious reaction upon realizing what was actually happening.

“Look at this. He’s so pious. He’s praying,” he announced as he passed by the man before interrupting himself, turning the camera away toward the other side of the street. “Oh my god! Please tell me you didn’t see anything.”

After asking his chat if anything sensitive was caught on camera, robcdee went on to describe the man, lightening the mood for such an uncomfortable (and unexpected) situation.

“The way he was looking down… the biggest s**t-eating grin, right?” he continued. “Like, ‘Ayyye, boy!’”

This wouldn’t be the first time the broadcaster has caught an unanticipated moment on stream: in fact, robcdee caught a few stuntmen jumping over a drunk citizen with their bikes in November 2019, leading to a humorous interaction with the “scared” local.

While his January excursion wasn’t as wholesome, it certainly made for an interesting moment in robcdee’s already unique array of content.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
