Streamer left shocked after giant rat invades his store

Twitch streamer Cody ‘DSKoopa’ Spencer, who owns and streams and out of his video game store, had an unwanted customer in his shop on November 3, when a giant rat appeared in the background of his broadcast.

The beauty of Twitch is that every stream is live, meaning viewers, and often the creators themselves, have no idea what could happen during their broadcast to the world, usually leading to some hilarious and crazy moments.

While packing shipments from his Pink Gorilla Games store in Seattle, Washington on November 3, Twitch viewers were able to spectate the crazy moment when a giant rat scurried across the floor of the store, much to the shock of Spencer.

DSKoopa owns a video games store in Seattle.

DSKoopa hosts Twitch Home Shopping Network, a show where he gives his viewers a look at the awesome games, accessories, and collectibles he has in the store, and was packaging up purchases made by his audience on stream when he heard a bang coming from behind him.

With the store closed, the streamer spun round to try and identify the source of the noise, when a rat scurried across the floor in clear view of the camera, before disappearing somewhere inside Pink Gorilla.

Unsurprisingly, DSKoopa was stunned by what he just saw, yelling in surprise before spinning round to face the camera with a look of complete shock on his face.

DSKoopa was clearly frustrated by the creature’s appearance and placed the blame on a restaurant near his store.“It’s that disgusting restaurant next door,” the streamer stated. 

“They do not cover their food. I just emailed the property owners, they’ve got to kick those guys out. We had the exterminators come by because this happened in the past, and we went over there, and they had a basement full of open containers.”

It seems that DSKoopa will likely have to call the exterminators in again, as the rat remains at large, and certainly doesn’t intend to buy any nostalgic gaming items from the store.

The streamer’s chat suggested that the rat could become a store mascot, but it seems that the animal’s days are numbered based on the email he sent to their landlords. 


Dele Alli roasts Kieran Trippier’s skills on Fortnite

Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli has roasted England international teammate Kieran Trippier over his gaming skills, bluntly calling him “really bad” at Fortnite.

Alli has recently become a global ambassador for Excel, one of the 10 League of Legends teams in the LEC and a powerhouse of UK esports, having made clear his love of gaming in recent years with his streams on Twitch.

Dele sat down to talk about his love of gaming with Excel, discussing FIFA, Fortnite, and some of the other top footballers he’s played with — but had a few less-than-savoury thoughts on his former Spurs teammate’s abilities.

After being asked who’s “not very good at gaming,” Trippier fell immediately into the firing line.

Dele joins a growing list of footballers getting involved in the esports scene in one way or another.

With a laugh at his friend’s misfortune, Dele revealed that the former Spurs man, unfortunately, falls into that category.

“Kieran Trippier was very late to gaming” Dele said, offering his former teammate somewhat of a lifeline. Before cracking up laughing again, the star added: “He jumped on it and he’s got a lot better but, at the start…”

Dele continued: “He joined Fortnite when we had all been playing for a while, and it was the first time he had played with a controller… so if you tell him to press X, he wouldn’t know which was X.”

Not content with letting his name be slandered in the gaming world, Kieran himself quickly responded with some laughing emojis, backing himself up by clarifying that he actually “wasn’t that bad,” though it doesn’t sound great for the full back.

Now, surely, fans will be desperate to see Dele and Kieran go head-to-head with one another to see if the latter is really as bad as he sounds.
