Thanks to the advent of IRL streaming, just about anyone can broadcast their daily lives for all to see – but sometimes, these streams can capture hilarious, awkward, and downright unexpected moments as they unfold in real time.

Popular Twitch streamer Emma “Kandyland” Carlsson is known for the hilarious hijinks that occur during her IRL streams, including an instance in early May where she almost burned down her own kitchen.

This time, however, she didn’t set her house ablaze – instead, she brought an abrupt halt to her stream, thanks to the unfortunate placement of her cellphone in proximity to her microwave.

Kandyland was unpacking an IKEA haul when she decided to show her audience an odd issue with her electricity, claiming that one of her lamps would flicker at times.

To showcase the phenomenon, Kandyland seemed to put her phone underneath her microwave, turning it on to see if the machine would sap the electricity and cause the light to flicker.

Instead, the microwave ended her broadcast, kicking the stream offline in a hilarious turn of events that left the streamer clearly embarrassed.

“I’m dying!” she exclaimed through laughter. “Am I that dumb? …I’m so stupid!”

The streamer went on to explain that she’d merely placed a glass of water in her microwave to see if the light would start flickering – although she didn’t anticipate that her broadcast would be cut short due to her experiment.

As previously mentioned, this wouldn’t be the first time Kandyland has gotten into some shenanigans during her IRL streams at home: she likewise set off a smoke alarm during a cooking stream in May, although she couldn’t figure out why it sounded pre-emptively.

The smoke alarm likely scared the pants off a few of her viewers due to how loud it was, with the streamer desperately moving pots, pans, and fanning the alarm with a pillow in an attempt to quiet the head-splitting noise.

It looks like Kandyland’s home-improvement shenanigans are far from over, however, considering her latest stream – but it certainly makes for some good, old fashioned entertainment.


David Dobrik makes assistant Natalie co-owner of pro soccer team

Ever the extravagant gift-giver, David Dobrik has stepped up with his birthday present for his assistant Natalie Mariduena, by buying her part-ownership of a professional soccer club.

In the past, David has gifted a ludicrous amount of cars, gifts and cash to his friends, fans and strangers alike.

David gifted Natalie her dream car, a baby blue Ford Bronco, for her birthday last year, so was probably a little lost for how to one-up himself this time around, especially considering how miserable a year most of us have had.

So, instead of buying her a material gift, David made Natalie a part-owner of a professional soccer club. Yes, really.

Natalie is David’s assistant and best friend — and she’s definitely reaping the rewards.

Angel City Football Club is one of the planned expansion teams in the National Women’s Soccer League, expected to begin play in the 2022 season.

Based in Los Angeles, California, the team has a number of high-profile investors including Hollywood actresses Natalie Portman and Eva Longoria — and, now Natalie from David’s vlog.

Tricking her by saying they’ve got a meeting, David instead blindfolds Natalie and takes her out into the middle of the Banc of Los Angeles pitch, which featured a huge banner on one side saying “Angel City FC proud owner, Natalie Mariduena.”

Naturally, she was completely shocked and clearly at a loss for words, simply asking David “what the heck” is happening.

What’s great about this gift is that it’s more of an investment than anything, with Natalie likely to make money from the club for as long as it exists, and without even having to spend a single dime herself.

It’s not clear how much of an ownership stake Natalie now owns in Angel City FC but, no matter the amount, it’s a seriously impressive present, and one she won’t be forgetting any time soon.
