Twitch viewers freak out after wild dingo appears on IRL stream

An IRL streamer broadcasting from Australia was camping on Fraser Island when his audience became terrified by a wild dingo that walked up behind him. 

Fraser Island is located off of the eastern Queensland coast of Australia, and is the largest sand beach in the world, spanning over 120km in length.

Besides the gorgeous views, the island is also known for its wildlife, and in recent years it’s seen a string of attacks from dingos against unprepared tourists.

Popular IRL streamer ‘theRealShooKon3’ chat’s went into a frenzy when they noticed the wild canine stumble upon his camping area, and went crazy trying to warn him.

A wild dingo appears!

The Twitch personality was 12 hours into his IRL stream, and was talking to his audience in his camping tent, when a wild dingo slowly walked up behind him, and looked straight at him.

TheRealShooKon3 was completely oblivious to the animal, so his chat began to repeatedly warn him about the canine that had stumbled on to where he was staying for the night.

His audience continued to spam “Dingo behind you!”, before he finally took notice to what they were saying, and looked over his shoulder, but by that point the animal had disappeared from view.

After repeatedly checking over his shoulder, the streamer then shook his head and exclaimed, “There’s no f*cking dingo behind me, bro!” in disbelief, even after viewers spent the last minute trying to warn him.

He then turned to his camera and asked, “How do you guys just troll me like that, that fast?!” before checking one last time over his shoulder, and then continuing his broadcast.

A reason the camper was so reluctant to believe them could be because he had been scammed back in May while in the Philippines when he paid a fake waitress at a bar, and his chat had given him a hard time for it.

While TheRealShooKon3 was ultimately not harmed by the incident, the close-encounter had viewers on the edge of their seats, as many know how dangerous wild dingos can actually be, and the island is known for attacks.

If nothing else, the moment was a stark reminder of the unpredictable nature of IRL streams, in that anything can literally happen at any second, especially when personalities broadcast outside in nature.

Sykkuno opened up about leaving the OfflineTV house and revealed he plans to move back in with family, but will stick around the Los Angeles area.

Sykkuno has only been a confirmed member of the OfflineTV house since August, but he’s already exploded in popularity. He deserves all the credit, though, since his content and input in collaborated streams has been thoroughly enjoyable.

It’s been a blast having him on board. However, Sykkuno ultimately decided not to stick around, and in one of his latest streams, he shared some details on what he’s planning to do next.

Sykkuno has been streaming for a while, but he’s become immensely more popular in recent weeks.

“As most of you guys probably know, [I’m] moving soon,” he said. “So, I’m probably not going to be streaming for a couple of days after today obviously because there’s a lot of moving stuff going on.”

Initially, Sykkuno is planning to move back in with his family, but then he’d evaluate his options and decide what to do next. “I’m probably moving home for a bit, and then we’ll figure it out after that,” he said.

Sykkuno also said he would “probably” stay in Los Angeles in the long run but isn’t planning to buy a house. “That’s a little too expensive for me,” he said. “I don’t think that’s quite happening.”

Sykkuno has been streaming Among Us on Twitch along with other popular streamers.

He described the move as a “bit of a hassle” but seemed excited about the future. He’s also adamant about not wanting to live alone. “I don’t want to live alone… I feel like it’s tough,” he said.

This hilariously opened the door for one fan to try and make an ambitious deal. “Pay for my rent, and I’ll live with you,” wrote the fan.

Sykkuno pondered for a moment and then jokingly pitched a counter-offer. “If you pay for my rent, I’ll there too, I suppose,” he said, laughing. “Thank you for the offer.”

Sykkuno didn’t mention anything else beyond that. However, if his meteoric rise continues to grow, the opportunities will be endless.

It comes after other OfflineTV members Scarra and Toast said that the OffliveTV house could be disbanding shortly.

“We can’t have a house that each of us have wives, husbands, our kids, and our pets living in once place,” Toast said in a recent stream.

It seems like Sykkuno’s fans will have his back no matter what he decides though. They’ve become a large and dedicated community in their own right.
