Having just committed a robbery, two criminals thought it would be a great idea to livestream their getaway. It was not.

Broadcasting throughout awkward moments is nothing new in the digital age, from uncomfortable experiences at love hotels, to streaming all-out brawls in the street it seems as though nothing is off-limits.

Pushing the boundaries that little bit further, two literal partners in crime had the brilliant idea of going live while making their escape after a successful robbery. Suffice to say, their attempt to flee was short-lived.

In an October 27 livestream, two Brazilian thieves broadcasted from inside of their getaway vehicle after having committed a robbery in broad daylight.

Singing along to music on the radio, not masking their faces whatsoever, the carefree criminals were quickly apprehended by local authorities.

From happy-go-lucky to absolutely mortified in just a few split seconds, the looks on their faces told the story as the duo immediately realized there was no getting out of it.

Instructed to keep their hands above their heads, all while a camera at the front of the vehicle captured it all, the two were quickly handcuffed and the stolen goods were recovered.

An amusing incident to say the least, they were the latest failed criminals to become internet famous after their foolish broadcast made them viral sensations.

Commenting on an October 27 Reddit post, ‘Penguin722’ joked that the local authorities ‘stream-sniped them in real life.”

While the incident was amusing from a viewer’s perspective, the crime itself was no joking matter. Never hesitate to report an incident to your local law enforcement.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
