British League of Legends streamer Ali ‘Gross Gore’ Larsen experienced an embarrassing technical difficulty during a League of Legends match.
He was in the middle of a game when his keyboard went haywire, sending him across the screen and typing a ton of random spam into the game’s chat.
His chat was quite amused at this turn of events - but Gross Gore wasn’t laughing.
The streamer was thoroughly shocked and dismayed, reeling back from his setup in confusion.
“Oh my god! My keyboard! What is my keyboard doing? It’s not me!”
Gross Gore held up his keyboard to the camera to prove that he wasn’t behind the machine’s madness.
Those in the game’s chat had no idea what to make of all the spam, and asked if he was trolling. He vehemently denied that he was trying to spam the chat.
He appeared to try to type a response, but more spam came out in the place of comprehensible human language. Even Gross Gore himself began to doubt if it was a glitch, but rather the work of hackers.
“My keyboard’s fucked! Am I hacked?”
As he reached over to unplug the keyboard, the spam started up again at an incredibly fast pace. He admitted that he’d spilt water on it, citing it as a probable culprit in the matter. He shook it out after removing it from the tower, noticing water leaking from the keys.
He managed to successfully dry the device and get back to the game - albeit a bit late. Once it was over (and the team had lost) he pleaded his case with his audience, showing the keyboard in question and stating that only a tiny bit of water had spilled on the thing.
Hopefully, Gross Gore will learn to be more careful with fluids around his setup in the future - but we'll be darned if it wasn't funny.
