One of the best things about watching Twitch streamers is the live nature of the broadcasts, which means there are always plenty of hilarious fails to catch, as viewers of Eric ‘Erobb’ Robbins found out Wednesday, October 2.
With every Twitch streamer broadcasting live, there’s no escape if things go pear-shaped, and Erobb suffered his own series of unfortunate events during his stream, much to the delight of his audience.
The brother of League of Legends star Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp is a regular feature near the top of Twitch’s IRL section, and was hanging out with his chat on October 2, when knocking over a bottle kicked off a cascade of hilarious mistakes that had his chat in stitches.
The streamer was arguing with his chat who were pretending not to believe he had bronchitis, when he reached to his desk to grab a bottle of pills he was taking to combat his illness.
This is where things went wrong for the streamer, as he immediately knocked the bottle off his desk, sending its contents everywhere, while a laugh track played in the background. “Oh my God,” Erobb told his chat, while the laughs echoed. “I just dropped my pill bottle. Oh my God, they’re everywhere, and I accidentally hit the laugh button on my freaking stream deck!”
Things went from bad to worse for the streamer, who reached for his webcam to show the mess only for the picture to freeze, groaning to his confused audience: “Oh my God, I just unplugged my webcam. Oh my God.”
Erobb’s chat was delighted with the events, spamming “LULW” and telling him he had taken an “L” as he plugged his camera back in, and stooped down to pick up the pills he had sent flying off the desk and onto the ground below.
Thankfully the streamer, who has over 100,000 followers on Twitch, was able to gather them all up from the floor, meaning he’ll be able to finish his full course of antibiotics without having to crawl underneath his desk to find them.
