Thanks to the advent of IRL streaming, just about anyone can broadcast their daily lives for all to see - which can result in unexpected and downright hilarious moments being caught on camera in real time.

Twitch streamer “wholewheatpete” caught one of these moments during a September 6 broadcast, where he streamed himself walking across a University campus in an attempt to pick up girls using pickup lines from his chat.

However, these weren’t any normal pickup lines: Pete stressed that he wanted his chat to use anime-themed pickup lines in his quest to find a date, which, of course, led to some humorous shenanigans.

While his journey across campus made for more than a few hilarious moments, the icing on the cake came when Pete decided to make a PSA to his campus’s food court, which he asked a bystander to film as he stood on top of a table amidst the dining students.

“I just want you guys all to know that I am single,” Pete announced. “I am looking for a girlfriend. My favorite anime is Attack on Titan and, ummm… I can stream 260 bpm on Osu! Alright, slide in my DMs. Thanks.”

Pete’s speech was met with a huge round of applause, snaps, and cheers from the surrounding students, with one bystander shouting “Attack on Titan!” in solidarity with the streamer.

Thankfully, his speech wasn’t made in vain: the streamer admitted that he had gotten someone’s phone number as a result of his experiment, as told in a thread of humorous Tweets where he admitted he’d been surprised at all the applause.

In fact, some of the steamer’s cheesy pickup lines went over quite well, thanks to the hilarious creativity of his audience, with one of them being:

“Roses are red/ violets are blue/ you are best girl/ but so are you/ be my waifu?”

His dating success aside, Pete stated that he might go through with his experiment again - which could be a major hit for the streamer, considering that his Tweet of his speech is already picking up steam on Twitter (and who knows - maybe his future waifu will tune into the stream?).
