Speedrunners get a chance to show off their skills during Awesome Games Done Quick, and this particular one took the opportunity to troll the audience with a hilarious fake crash during the run.

AGDQ is always a massive event because it gives viewers a chance to watch people speedrun their favorite games, and it also raises money for charity.

This particular event is raising money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation, and over $1 million dollars has been collected so far by over 25,000 donators.

While most of the runners take their craft quite seriously, some of them take an opportunity to troll when it’s there.

Speedrunner Bloodthunder, who would go on to roast Twitch streamer Alinity in the same broadcast, had the absolutely perfect troll ready for his viewers.

For most runners, timing is the most important thing, but when he had a few extra seconds, he decided to bring out a popular meme and troll the audience.

2KBioshock was Bloodthunder’s game of choice.

He faked a crash by showing a blue screen of death on his screen before putting his hands on his head, but everything was not as it seemed.

Directly following the blue screen, it transitioned into the opening intro to the 2011 classic The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Anyone who has frequented the internet since Skyrim’s release is likely familiar with this meme, and it got a loud roar from the crowd after they released what just happened.

This meme has become a very popular bait-and-switch joke where the person would black out and upon waking back up, it’d be them in the cart from the start of the game.

The intro didn’t last long and Bloodthunder went right back to playing Bioshock. It made for a really funny moment for an otherwise pretty serious event. He eventually finished the game with a time of 49 minutes and 59 seconds, which was still 10 minutes off from the world record.

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.
