Popular Twitch streamer JakeNBake spent his Thanksgiving introducing his parents to the world of VR Chat and the results were comically insane to say the least.

Streamers getting their parents to play popular video games isn’t necessarily a new concept, but bringing them into VR Chat takes that idea to a completely new level.

VR Chat is one of the most popular experiences available to virtual reality players, bringing people together into a fully 3D world where they can interact, party, and play games with each other.

During the November 26 broadcast, Jake decided to bring his mother into VR and right off the bat, having her interact with another streamer by the name of “MurderCrumpet” was downright hilarious.

“Hello, how are you doing!?” Jake’s mother asked as the user showed up in her devilish-looking black avatar with dark red hair. “I’m Victoria. You’re MurderCrumpet? I don’t know if I like a MurderCrumpet.”

“Don’t worry about the name, call me Crumpet. The Murder part, that comes way later,” the player joked.

Eventually, Crumpet ended up inviting Jake’s mom to a dinner party at a club and she agreed to go into the portal to the destination.

From there, Victoria found herself interacting with all sorts of scantily-clad avatars and she was extremely impressed with how realistic everything looked.

Meanwhile, Jake’s dad had an interesting time being “hypnotized” by a famous player named Blu Haze.

“Oh my God, very nice,” he said as the player posed for him. “I’ve been drawn to her. I’m hypnotized by those violet eyes. Oh my God, very nice. Look at that.”

All while this was going on, Jake could only look on in disbelief and put his hands on his head, clearly stunned by what was transpiring.

“Don’t let her seduce you, she’ll have your soul,” someone off-screen warned.

“She already has, I’m afraid,” Jake’s father replied. “And my belly too.”

The whole experience is certainly very strange, especially with Jake’s parents getting so into it. Who knows, maybe in the future, they’ll become regulars at the parties in VR Chat.
