IRL streamer saves unwitting tourist from uncomfortable situation

Popular IRL Twitch streamer “Robcdee” was walking down the streets of Tokyo, Japan when he noticed a foreign bystander being accosted by a woman — but this wasn’t your average “scam.”

Robcdee is a popular “English born, Australian raised” IRL streamer based out of Japan, best known for his walks throughout Tokyo’s bustling nightlife scene and interactions with the locals.

However, it’s not just the “city pop” aesthetic that has viewers tuning in: robcdee’s broadcasts often capture unexpected material, including some jaw-dropping and blush-inducing moments for those not used to the area.

Tokyo-based streamer “robcdee” often broadcasts his nights out on the town, coming across a seriously uncomfortable situation for a tourist.

Robcdee experienced one such moment during a January 25 stream, during one of his famous nighttime walks.

As he made his way down the street, he passed by a foreign man outside of a convenience store, who appeared to be looking at his phone. The tourist wasn’t alone, either: a woman was standing nearby, trying to speak to him, although her words were muffled by the surrounding noise.

“She’s asking to give him a handj*b,” the streamer realized before butting into her efforts to save the tourist from an uncomfortable interaction.

“Hey man!” he greeted. “You doin’ alright? This is my friend.”

It seems that the woman was immediately aware of what was going on, and instantly fled the scene, apparently not too keen on being filmed trying to accost a stranger.

Robcdee went on to ask the stranger (who turned out to be a fellow Australian) if he was alright, who revealed that he was trying to make it back to his Airbnb.

Although it’s unclear if the tourist was drunk or not, Rob managed to point him in the right direction, and the two parted ways quite amicably.

This isn’t the first time rob has caught a shocking scene on his stream, by far: in fact, he accidentally filmed a man emptying his bladder in the street, after at first confusing his kneeling stance for prayer.

Luckily, the streamer was in the right place at the right time to help out an unsuspecting tourist, giving his viewers some unintended entertainment, in the meantime.

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.
