IRL streamer “Burger Planet” had quite a scare while he was driving on the highway.

The internet personality, who frequently broadcasts his road trips and other events in his life, was chatting with his stream when suddenly, out of nowhere, his back window exploded.

“I can’t wait until I have a better body,” he said to his chat after passing a sign for Twin Peaks Road and Exit 244 in Arizona. Just then, before he could even finish his sentence, the sound of glass shattering rang out.

“Ahh!” Burger Planet cried out while still continuing to drive ahead. “What the f**k?”

The IRL streamer then adjusted his camera to show his viewers that his entire back window had suddenly vanished.

“For some reason my window just busted open!” he exclaimed. “Did somebody throw something through my window? I don’t know if something hit my window, but my window just busted open. Godd***it. F**k. My window just f**king shattered back there.”

To his credit, the streamer managed to keep himself together and drive safely, despite a crazy series of events that could have caused him to lose control on the road.

“I got to get a new window somehow,” he murmured. “That scared the f**k out of me. And there’s glass everywhere. Jesus.”

Unfortunately, as Burger Planet pointed out, he now had no security in the back of his car. Eventually, he pulled into a gas station to clean up the broken glass in the van, and then headed to a junkyard to find a replacement.

It certainly became a very stressful situation for the streamer, but he found a way to handle it promptly before continuing on his trip.

Hopefully, the new window can last him a long time and doesn’t explode into a million pieces like the other one.

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.”
