Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar was left stunned during a recent Grand Theft Auto V roleplaying stream as The Walking Dead’s Chandler Riggs walked into the same clothing store.

Most prominently known for his time portraying Carl Grimes in AMC’s hit series The Walking Dead, 20-year-old actor Chandler Riggs has grown quite the following on Twitch as well, often live streaming new releases and old favorites.

Jumping back into character while roleplaying in GTA Online is nothing new for the popular star, but in a March 26 session, Riggs unknowingly walked into the same clothing store as one of his all-time favorite streamers, Summit1g.

Both Summit and Riggs were amazed that they found one another in a GTA RP server.

Walking through the streets of Los Santos, Summit stopped into a local store for a few minutes to check out some new clothes. During his visit, a character dressed exactly like Carl Grimes appeared behind him. From his pants to his father’s hat and even an eyepatch, the resemblance was uncanny.

“What’s your first name?” Summit asked. “The name’s Carl,” the other responded, sounding just like the actor that portrayed him. Accurate enough that it drew a laugh from the streamer, who seemed convinced it was just a good impression.

After a short conversation, the character headed out again. “Someone’s gotta send that to him,” Summit joked, before being told by viewers in his chat, that the player was, in fact, none other than Riggs himself.

Summit lost his mind, putting his heads in his hands and laughing at his missed opportunity to actually talk to the Walking Dead television star. “That’s not actually him, is it? That’s f***ing him? You gotta be f***ing kidding me dude,” he laughed.

Meanwhile, on Riggs’ own Twitch stream shortly after, he too was stunned to learn that he crossed paths with one of his favorite personalities on the platform.

“That’s hilarious. I’m lowkey freaking out. I’ve been such a Summit fanboy for f***ing ages, he expressed while watching the clip back.

“When I was in Canada filming, after work I would just come home and watch him play NoPixel [the most popular RP server],” the actor said. He added he “probably wouldn’t have joined the server if [he] wasn’t introduced to it through Summit.”

A memorable moment for both Summit and Riggs, they were clearly left stunned by the random encounter while casually roleplaying on the popular GTA server.

While the two happened upon each other in GTA by complete chance, given that they’re both fans of one another, perhaps they’ll link up in the future for some more RP antics — maybe they’ll have a longer conversation next time too.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
