The OfflineTV crew took archery lessons on the coast of Los Angeles, and Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys and Lily ‘LilyPichu‘ Ki’s natural bow-shooting abilities impressed both their housemates and their instructor.
The OfflineTV team are never shy about trying something new. As long as they all do it together, they film it, and proceed to laugh at each other at the first chance they get.
The six-person roster of streamers/YouTubers took on a new challenge together in their February 27 upload, as the whole squad traveled to South Bay Archery Lessons in Redondo Beach.
The collective of Pokimane, LilyPichu, Michael Reeves, Jeremy ‘Disguised Toast’ Wang, Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan, and William ‘Scarra’ Li were introduced to their fascinating archery instructor by the name of Paul Farbman.
After a lengthy introduction and safety discussion, Farbman brought out the bows, and LilyPichu immediately put the rest of the team on notice with some scarily accurate first shots.
Toast jokingly remarked that the “pressure’s on” when Lily ended up firing first, as Fedmyster said “it would set the tone for the whole video” – but she handled the pressure with ease and set a high bar with her first strike hitting the target area dead center.
After some practice by the whole team, their teacher brought out more precise targets, and Lily again impressed with two hits on the yellow bullseye area. Farbman jokingly asked her when she was going to tell the rest of OfflineTV that she had been taking private lessons.
However, Pokimane took over the competition in the later rounds, including a 4/4 performance where she hit the red section (the section just outside the bullseye) with each arrow, catapulting her into the lead. She finished off her friends in the final round, being the first to hit the balloon in the bullseye and cementing her first-place finish.
Fedmyster unfortunately finished in last, after requiring multiple tries to pop the balloon in the final round – meaning he would be paying for the group’s dinner that evening.
The archery begins officially at 5:02 for mobile readers.
While some did better than others, you couldn’t tell from their instructor’s feedback, who consistently provided positive reinforcement to the gang of internet stars and transformed them into efficient medieval killing machines that could tangle with the likes of Legolas or Hawkeye (If they were balloons, that is).
Between archery, skydiving, and even a laser tag game designed by Michael Reeves himself, the OfflineTV crew isn’t scared of a little danger if it means creating good content, and fans ought to be curious as to what the group is going to do next.
