Popular Twitch streamer and bodybuilder ‘Knut’ was IRL streaming from Northern Europe on June 14, when a seagull hilariously gatecrashed his stream and ruined his lunch.

Knut is well known as a bodybuilder and Twitch streamer, with just under 70,000 followers on the streaming platform. Many know him for being kicked out of TwitchCon Europe back in April of this year. On June 14, he was streaming as he travelled to Jönköping, a city in southern Sweden.

Jönköping will be hosting the upcoming CS:GO tournament DreamHack Summer 2019 from June 15 to June 17; hence why Knut is travelling. However, the 32-year-old stopped for some lunch, and left his food on the table momentarily to go to the toilet, when the hilarious incident happened.

“I’m going to the toilet as well,” he informed his viewers, before walking out of shot and leaving his food completely unattended on the table. A few seconds passed before a seagull appeared out of nowhere and had a go at stealing his lunch.

Luckily for Knut, though, an elderly lady on the table behind waved away the bird, and continued to heroically defend the streamer’s food until the bodybuilder returned a few minutes later, much to his stream's excitement. 

As a bodybuilder, Knut is clearly someone who cares about his food and caloric intake, but he seemed to take it fairly light-heartedly, even cursing the seagull when he returned and had the situation explained to him.

His viewers certainly found the entire incident hilarious, as they cheered on the elderly lady as she began protecting Knut’s food, as well as enjoying the audacity of the seagull.
