The super-popular Twitch streamer ‘summit1g’ wowed his viewers with his impressive driving skills during a race inside a GTA Online roleplaying server, creating a meme-worthy moment with his excellent timing.
Summit1g has had some incredible moments inside GTA roleplaying servers, but this incredible highlight from his recent return to the popular game mode might just be his magnum opus.
He’s certainly no stranger to the races in GTA RP, having previously derailed one in the past with a hilarious hit-and-run. He’s also no stranger to having issues with the in-game cops, frequently getting hit by invisible cars, and invoking more “1g” comments coupled with the fire emoji.
During his February 28 stream, summit1g was participating in a long race around the entire map of Los Santos against other players, with the first lap taking over 11 minutes to complete.
He was only one minute into the second lap when something spectacular and perfectly-timed occurred to prompt an abundance of Pog’s from his Twitch chat.
Summit was going so fast that his car lifted off the pavement when the road sloped down heading across a bridge, causing him to rotate and bounce off of a light pole that saved him from flying off an elevated bridge into the ocean.
Amazingly, he regained control of his vehicle as the bridge came to an end – and he did all of this while accompanied by his music, which was playing Dave Rogers’ “Deja Vu” from the anime series Initial D, which is fittingly about street racing.
The chorus of the song has been used in various memes and videos over the years, and is still popularly used on sites like YouTube and TikTok. That chorus came in at the perfect time as summit1g completed his stunt.
Unfortunately, when he lost control of his vehicle again just a minute later as the chorus of the song kicked in again, it wasn’t a deja vu of his first miraculous recovery.
Clips and moments like this are great, but don’t expect these in the same frequency as last year. Summit has stated on stream that he won’t be doing GTA RP streams as frequently going forward, and won’t typically do the eight-hour-long ones he has pulled off before.
It’s worth pointing out that in the past, he’d said that he was “done” with the mod, but came back to play just months later. For fans of his roleplaying antics and wild car crashes, hopefully limiting the amount of time he plays on average means a longer lifespan in his game library.
