YouTubers Logan Paul and KSI fought in a celebrity boxing match and the internet could not help but see parallels to a children’s show from ten years ago.

The events of Logan and KSI were eerily similar to an episode of iCarly.

‘iFight Shelby Marx’ was a two-episode special and the Season 2 finale of iCarly.

The plot involved the star of the show, web video creator Carly, agreeing to fight Marx to help Carly’s internet show get more viewers. Twitter users were quick to spot the similarities to today.

The fictional Carly and Marx fight did not end with a winner, much like Logan and KSI ending in a draw.

If KSI and Logan were only looking for publicity, they did alright as an estimated 2 million viewers tuned in to the fight. However, the majority of viewers watched on illegal streams.

A rematch is scheduled for 2019, so the pair may not become friends like Carly and Marx did at the end of their fight.

iCarly was a popular young adult show that ran for five seasons and focused on a middle school student who had her own streaming channel.

The first episode aired in 2007, four years before the founding of popular internet streaming platform Twitch.

A Pokemon GO player’s livestream was interrupted when a mugger robbed them in front of viewers. The Trainer’s phone and car were stolen during the broadcast.

Pokemon GO took the world by storm in 2016, as players from all over ventured outside of their homes to catch their favorite monsters. The mobile title developed by Niantic brought the beloved Nintendo RPG to real life for millions.

Unfortunately, because the game takes place in the real world, unexpected things can happen – from fans assaulting each other over Gyms, to even murder. On October 8, a streamer’s broadcast quickly turned violent after they were mugged, much to the horror of their audience.

While there is no video of the incident, viewers tuning it could hear the audio of the terrifying moment. “Whoa dude, I’m live! I’m live! I don’t got nothing. I don’t have anything!” the 23-year old told the assailant.

The thief can be heard telling the Pokemon fan “The f**k wrong with you?!” after they tried to resist the theft. The GO stream then cut off after the criminal stole the player’s phone.

The thieves could be heard talking on the stream after multiple attempts to unlock the victim’s phone. “We got to get up through here really quick. Come on. We got his vape, his car keys, let’s get the whip, right,” they said.

It wasn’t long before the criminals realized that the phone was still broadcasting live. “He was going live? Why does he got so many goddamn portable chargers?” they said, before taking off with the stolen items.

According to Reddit, a police investigation is now underway. At the time of writing, the individuals have not yet been found or arrested. Based on the audio, it appears that the streamer was mugged by four individuals.

This story is sadly another example of how unpredictable the real world can actually be. And unfortunately, that means even players trying to enjoy Pokemon GO outside can sometimes get caught up in some scary situations.
