A Twitch streamer was broadcasting live in the streets of Santiago, Spain when people he encountered assaulted him and attempted to rob his equipment.

While people typically stream on Twitch from the comforts of their own homes, others take the stream to bustling streets of their cities.

Twitch streamer ‘CaptainContent_’ was going about his typical stream of interacting with the nightlife on his streets when a strange encounter with three bystanders, two men and a woman, quickly turned for the worse.

CaptainContent_ TwitchAside from the terrifying scenes, CaptainContent’s stream is typically filled with fun and hilarious moments.

It’s unknown how the conversation started, but it seems like CaptainContent had interacted with one of them before, saying: “Hey, listen listen, where’s the guy that roughed me up the other day?”

Later on, one of the men can be heard saying, “I’d sooner rob you than beat you up.”

Then one of the men looks to be inspecting CaptainContent to see what he can rob when the streamer pulls out his wallet. He then turns the camera to the one inspecting him, saying: “Look at this ‘Rastafari.’”

“I’d rather rob you, even the phone and all, before beating you up,” the man said.

After which CaptainContent hands over the phone to the man. The screen then goes black, but the stream goes on.

It seems like the man pocketed the phone while it kept filming since muffled voices of confusion can be heard in the background.

The streamer can be heard calmly trying to reason and plead with the man to give him his phone back.

CaptainContent_The streamer was pinned after asking for his phone back.

“Please, please. Please don’t rob me. Please,” the streamer can be heard saying. “If you tell me not to record, I won’t and I’ll leave. I swear to you. Please give me my phone.”

After begging the man to give him his phone back, the streamer can be heard crying out for help.

When the image returns the man is seen thrusting CaptainContent into a nearby bush while threatening the streamer, saying: “… I’ll rip your fuckin head off.”

Once the streamer got possession of his phone back, he kept the stream going. His assaulter didn’t like that but CaptainContent kept his ground, repeating: “I have a right to record myself.”

The video ends with the streamer recovering from the ordeal while the man who had assaulted him stood over him continuing to threaten him.

CaptainContent was visibly shaken after the episode, but has since returned to a normal streaming schedule. The streamer mentioned possibly moving out of the city so that an incident like this never happens again.

Former Vine star Patrick Perkins has cleared up a myth about an iconic meme years after it first took the internet by storm.

While Vine shuffled its mortal coil in 2016, many of its biggest stars have carried on with short-form comedy on YouTube and now TikTok, including Lele Pons, Liza Koshy, and David Dobrik.

Even now, these short clip compilations still get millions of views on YouTube, and there are still multiple Instagram and Twitter accounts dedicated to them. Several vines have carried on their internet life as memes or gifs and have even been pasted onto merchandise.

The vine in question shows a blonde teenager in glasses blowing a smoke circle using a vape on a desk when the person carrying the camera blows it away. The teen turns to the camera and exasperatedly says “Adam!.”

Adam and Patrick starred in several iconic vines.

Now the star himself has come onto TikTok to confirm some lore surrounding him and his twin brother, which has baffled thousands who never knew the truth.

Another iconic and highly quotable vine involving one of the twins shows them walking into his bathroom in just a pair of boxers saying: “Hi, welcome to chillis.” In another, one of the twins begs viewers to stop comparing him to Chicken Little.

To most people, they look like the exact same person.

However, Patrick has explained in a viral TikTok that they’re actually identical twins. Patrick was the star of the vape video, while the other twin is Adam and the star of the Chilli’s vine. He also showed a picture of them together “since a lot of people don’t believe that there are actually two of us.”

Patrick also posted the video to Twitter and users were bowled over by the new information. One person wrote, “I feel like a different person for knowing this,” while another added, “world-shattering revelations are sometimes just small clarifications I guess.”

In less than 24 hours, Patrick’s tweet has amassed 4,000 likes and continues to grow, bringing back a sense of nostalgia for many and clearing up a long-standing internet myth.
