Twitch streamer Hitch, best known for hitchhiking around the world while livestreaming, had a random, rather bizarre, encounter with a fellow IRL streamer who happened to be doing the exact same thing.

Hitch’s latest travels have taken him to Japan, where he has decided to hitchhike from the Southern city of Nagasaki in attempt to go as far North across the country as possible.

Having made it to the most Northern city, Wakkanai, on June 6, he decided to continue on with his journey around Japan, where he happened to bump into another livestreamer, who was also hitchhiking.

@Live_hitch / twitterHitch made it to the Northernmost point of Japan only a few days prior to meeting the streamer.

It seems to have been by pure chance that the pair crossed paths, as the Japanese streamer was just being dropped off at the town Hitch was entering.

The Japanese streamer instantly approached him after realizing he was a fellow streamer, introducing himself and telling him he was live on the mobile app “Twitcasting.”

Much to his surprise, Hitch then discovered that the streamer was also hitchhiking, after he showed him his sign and gestured towards the people who dropped him off. “What? we’re doing the exact same thing, I’m hitchhiking.” Hitch said, before telling him how far his journey was, “From Nagasaki to Wakkanai.”

The Japanese streamer was shocked to hear that Hitch had traveled over 1000 miles from the South of Japan, exclaiming, “Nagasaki!” even telling the people who gave him the lift just how far he had came.

After the pair had gone their separate ways, Hitch then found the Japanese streamers channel on TwitCasting with the help of his viewers, listening in on what the streamer had to say about their chance meeting.

He was pleased to see the streamer had nothing but compliments for him after they met, even saying that he had a “fantastic face.”

This was not the first bizarre incident that has occurred during an IRL Twitch stream, with the unpredictability often resulting in strange moments, such as one particularly odd incident where a ‘stream sniper’ sniffed a streamers chair.

It appears as if IRL streaming is becoming even more popular now, but the odds of these two IRL hitchhikers finding each other in a random Japanese town was still extremely slim.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch: Pokimane
Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
