Korean streamer’s awkward first American meal ends in hilarity

Thanks to the popularity of live streaming, internet personalities across the globe can interact with fans of all languages – and one Korean Twitch streamer took her fandom to the next level with an IRL stream in another country.

Korean Twitch streamer “Hachubby” is a quickly-growing face on the platform, skyrocketing to fame for her hilarious impressions of stars like Dr Disrespect and the hilarious antics she records during broadcasts of her part-time job at a convenience store.

That’s not all Hachubby is known for, though: the streamer likewise talks with her fans in English as best she can, as it is her second language, sometimes resulting in humorous moments as she uses online tools to communicate.

Hachubby kicked her content up a notch with a trip to the United States in late September, traveling to San Diego to try out authentic American cuisine for her IRL stream.

Her food of choice? Pizza: but her quest for the victuals didn’t go off without a hitch, as she had an awkward interaction with a waitress when trying to order a pie.

“Are you by yourself or are you waiting for somebody else?” the waitress asked, resulting in an uncomfortable conversation where Hachubby asked if she was allowed to stream in the restaurant.

“This is a livestream,” she explained. “I can livestream?”

The encounter continued in a similar manner, with the waitress pointedly asking Hachubby if she wanted to dine in or take out, leaving her somewhat confused and flustered.

Despite the awkward interaction, Hachubby’s first American pizza turned out to be a near-religious experience, as shown by the hilarious expression she gave the camera upon biting into the pie and giving a thumbs up.

The waitress later asked her about her thoughts on the meal, which Hachubby confirmed with another thumbs up through a bite of pizza, answering, “Very good,” before falling into a fit of laughter.

No matter the circumstances, IRL streams almost always bring out unexpected and humorous content to unsuspecting viewers – but Hachubby’s trip to America is giving fans a wholesome look into her daily life.

Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
