New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has shown that she knows what “the kids” are down with nowadays, making a hilarious Twitch cameo on the ever-wholesome IRL broadcast of Broxh.

When the beloved Kiwi woodworker Broxh started his stream on September 7, he teased that he would have a special guest on later in the broadcast. It could have potentially been another NZ based streamer, or a popular personality.

However, it was bigger than that; Broxh managed to get New Zealand’s current Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, on for a casual chat to talk about his artwork and Twitch streaming ⁠— live in front of thousands of viewers. Everyone in chat was seemingly in shock at the surprise crossover.

Of course, the two got up to some hilarious antics. Ardern, who even professed to be an avid viewer of Broxh’s content, called on the streamer to do one of his signature hair flicks on broadcast. She even said it looks “more luxurious in real life.”

She asked Broxh about the ins and outs of the streaming world, and his rapid rise through Twitch. The wholesome Kiwi streamer broke out earlier in 2020 for his chill woodworking streams, where he’d bring the Twitch community into his shed for the day.

He also has turned down numerous big donations, instead choosing to give it away to charity, or even trying to refund it. Ardern acknowledged this, claiming Broxh is “the most humble person on Twitch.”

Broxh, in turn, put on a woodworking masterclass for the 40th Prime Minister of New Zealand. After talking through the stories he is trying to tell with each of his pieces, Ardern took up the tools to crack on herself.

“You make it look really easy,” she said, as she chiselled away at the piece of wood. She was being a bit cautious, trying not to take off a big chunk and ruin Broxh’s work, but the streamer was just enjoying the company.

She even hit a dab for good measure on her departure, as the chat raved on about the collision of two of New Zealand’s most beloved people on Twitch.

The ever-busy Ardern, who has been New Zealand’s leader since 2017, was only on for five minutes before she had to “dash out” for another meeting. However, she could potentially make another cameo appearance on her very own Twitch channel sometime down the line ⁠— who knows.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
