Popular Korean streamer HAchubby decided to take a trip to Knott’s Berry Farm in California alongside AngelsKimi, and while there were a lot of great things to see in the IRL stream, one prank in particular caught the eyes of viewers.

If there’s one thing that you could say about the Twitch personality, who has over 160,000 followers on her channel, it’s that she likes to provide variety in her content – whether it be visiting zoos, playing video games like Minecraft, or just cooking at home.

Featuring in AngelsKimi’s broadcast on January 23, the pair could be seen walking around the 57-acre theme park located in Buena Park, with one of the themed areas based on the Wild West.

Knott’s Barm Farm first opened back in 1920 and now attracts around 4 million visitors per year.

With a number of shows and stunts taking part across the course of the day, when they’re not working on that, the people that are involved can often be seen roaming around still in character – and clearly caught HAchubby by surprise when she was approached by one of them.

They were both walking around in the area, with Kimi mentioning a restaurant that they might visit next, but nobody expected what was going to happen next as a guy dressed in wild west clothing screaming in their faces.

HAchubby dropped her phone immediately and cupped her hands over ears, while her fellow streamer picked up the device that had fallen in the process.

Moments later, the streamers saw the funny side of the situation – being frightened that is – but there had been some damage to HAchubby’s phone in the process. She moved it close to the screen so people tuning into the stream could see and it didn’t look great.

“My camera is like this and I’m really angry,” she said, pointing towards the cracked corner of her smartphone.

It just goes to show that while IRL streams can be really successful and interesting to watch, the unpredictability of venturing outside with a camera can also make for some embarrassing moments as well. Maybe next time she’ll be more alert, if she ever returns to this particular park.


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.”
