Twitch streamer uses romance to try and fight parking ticket

An IRL Twitch streamer, Jon Zherka, was streaming live when he received a parking ticket and decided he should try to fight it by arguing that his violation was in the name of love and courtship.

Twitch’s IRL streamers are a different breed, and Zherka is no exception. In the unflinching spirit of content creation, Zherka was streaming live, saw a parking officer giving a parking ticket, and decided to try and get the law of the land rescinded.

A former nightclub bouncer in Vancouver, Zherka has built a substantial online following as a confident, socially comfortable personality with a particular tendency for promiscuity. As such, he has worked numerous times with Austin (formerly known as Rajj Patel) and appeared on the Rajjchelor streamer dating show.

Fittingly, then, Zherka’s argument for why he shouldn’t receive a ticket for failing to pay his parking meter was that he didn’t have the time, as he needed to catch up to a girl to try and ask for her number. There’s a plot twist later, but we won’t spoil it for you just yet.

As seen in the clip, Zherka sees an assumed parking officer off-screen and asks them if he got a ticket. The officer delivers the unfortunate news and claims it would be a hefty $47 amount when he asks how much it will set him back.

Politely, Zherka notes that the cost isn’t too high, but asks the officer to “please delete it,” before realizing good manners won’t get the job done in this situation. Thus, he alters strategy and opens up about the true reason for his violation of the law: “I was trying to pick up a thick chick … If I told you I got her number, would you delete that ticket?”

With great power comes great responsibility and the officer stood true to his professional values, denying that a successful courtship by Zherka would have been enough to make him drop the ticket. Then, suspecting something was afoot when Zherka continued to walk on, the officer asks if it’s actually his car that’s been ticketed.

Zherka then reveals as classic an IRL Twitch plot twist as you can get: “Oh, no. I just farm clips.”


Mike Majlak reveals why he’s broken up with Lana

Mike Majlak and Lana have been the sweethearts of the internet world for quite some time, but their relationship is officially over, with Mike Majlak breaking the news on YouTube.

Mike and Lana have been in a relationship together for ten months. It’s been a widely publicized roller coaster ride filled with ups and downs. However, it was one that many mutual fans loved to see.

It was also the only relationship Majlak has been involved in throughout the past decade. But sadly, not all relationships can stand the test of time, and the two of them have officially parted ways.

Mike Majlak broke the news in a YouTube video. “Never thought id ever put out a breakup video but this one was necessary,” he said. “I wanted the story told my way before others could tarnish what was an incredible relationship and part of my journey.”

In the video, Mike Majlak explains that he felt like the fans deserved an explanation since the breakup happened out of the blue. “There’s no one specific reason [for the breakup],” he said. “It wasn’t a loyalty thing.”

“The best thing about Amara [which is her real name] is that she’s so fiercely loyal,” he added. “I never once had to worry about her cheating [or] talking to any other guys. It was never about other guys.”

His comment immediately shuts down rumors and accusations that she cheated on him. It’s often the first thing people suspect when there’s a sudden breakup.

Instead, he claimed they were simply “two people who wanted vastly different things.”

“Amara was… obsessed with the idea of linear and traditional life and love,” he said. “She wanted to meet a guy, she wanted to settle down, she wanted to have a family and just live this kind of linear life.”

“That’s just not who I am,” he said. He also claimed she was “trying to facilitate the vision that she saw for the relationship, which was getting a house and moving in with her.”

However, while it made “made complete sense to her,” it didn’t to him, and it didn’t feel right to go ahead with it. 

In the end, there were too many signs that they wanted “two vastly different things in life” and “weren’t cut out to be together” and “go the distance.”

The breakup has been hard on them both, so to make things easier, they’ve been trying not to talk and keeping their distance.

It’s a sad end for one of the more beloved internet couples in recent times, but it’s certainly not a bitter one. The two of them have clearly thought long and hard about the decision.

In the end, it seems like calling it quits made the most sense in the long run, but they’ve parted ways on good terms.
