A German Twitch streamer was left absolutely stunned while wandering the streets of the Vietnam capital Hanoi on Sunday night and witnessing a motorcycle crash.

The streamer, who goes by TeamPMS_ItsPat, was casually walking down the road when a swarm of people on motorbikes came cruising by.

Unfortunately for the cyclists, a large truck was taking up most of the street, making it difficult for cars, let alone bikes, to get by. Adding to the difficulty was a smaller car parked just in front of the truck, leaving a little gap.

While Pat watched a car struggle to get through the opening, soon several motorcycles sped up in an attempt to get through the path.

The first cyclist was able to successfully fit through the opening while the second decided to go completely around and drive on the sidewalk. As the next few formed a line to get through the gap, one rider couldn’t break in time and crashed into the truck.

“Whoa, s**t!” the streamed cried after witnessing the collision. “Oh s**t! Oh s**t! Oh s**t!”

Upon closer inspection, it appeared as if the first crash caused another bike to go flying and land on the side of the truck.

While the motorist who first crashed was quick to get back on his bike and try to drive off, his bike seemed to have either stalled or he couldn’t control it as a few moments later it was left in the middle of the road.

“Holy s**t!” the IRL streamer exclaimed, still unable to get over what he witnessed.

Luckily, it seemed like everyone was okay, though the bikes would certainly have seen better days.

According to the BBC, the city of Hanoi has over five million motorcycles and plans to ban the popular transport by 2030 to combat pollution.

Perhaps pollution is only part of the problem when crashes like this happen on the street.

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.
