OfflineTV members Pokimane, Disguised Toast, and Michael Reeves are shelling out a combined $105,000 to get their hands on a Boston Dynamics robot dog, but it might not be for the reasons you think. 

The OfflineTV collective is made up of some of the most popular content creators around when it comes to Twitch and YouTube – commanding a huge following on their individual channels, as well as their group channel.

As they all pretty much live under one roof, bar Pokimane, it makes it super easy to collaborate. Yet, in this case, Pokimane, Michael Reeves, and Disguised Toast are pooling their money together to buy a robot dog.

Yes, you read that right, a robot dog. Though, Reeves has a few ideas of his own that would make it pretty unique.

The Boston Dynamic dogs have wowed the internet over the years.

The popular YouTuber and streamer noted that now the robots are on sale from Boston Dynamics, he has been trying to get his hands on one. The dogs start at around $74,000 but you can throw on some modifications.

While it might be pretty cool to own one anyway, Reeves’ idea would make the OfflineTV’s robot a one of a kind. “Imagine you’re at a party and you’re like where’s the drinks? Oh, just go to the robot dog,” he started. 

“You go over to the robot dog and I’ve programmed the robot dog to pee out beer into a cup and you will never ever forget that party as long as you live,” he added, much to the amusement of his fellow creators.

While some might think that’s a wacky and crazy idea that would never come to fruition, the personalities have pooled their money together.

Disguised Toast even tweeted out messages between himself and Pokimane about how quick they get the robot from Boston Dynamics themselves.

It’ll certainly be something to keep an eye on, especially given the ideas that Reeves has for the robot dog.

We’ll just have to wait and see what other mad scientist plans get tossed around in the near future.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
