Two German Twitch streamers were busy serenading passersby when a stranger grabbed something pretty important to them – but their reaction wasn’t what everyone expected.
Twitch is a beehive for all kinds of content. From users broadcasting their trips abroad to sharing their hijinks with friends in online games, it’s safe to say that the platform has something for everyone.
Of all the categories on Twitch, IRL streams tend to produce the most outrageous moments. After all, it’s hard to predict what others will do when a streamer is out in the wild… and sometimes they can capture things that are outrageous for an audience of thousands of live viewers.
Two German streamers captured one of those wild moments on a recent show in Berlin. The duo were chirping to the audience in the middle of a mall, casually singing songs into a microphone for all to hear.
Unfortunately, they were too preoccupied with their musical performance to pay much attention to the guitar which was in an open case right behind them.
During their live broadcast, viewers could clearly see a passer-by grabbing the guitar and walking away as smoothly as if it had belonged to him.
Both streamers had no desire for the theft to even take place and continued to moan into the microphone… until one of the broadcasters finally noticed the missing guitar some time later.
However, rather than panicking over the expensive instrument’s sudden disappearance, the duo laughed in shock before one of the streamers announced that they were missing their guitar in the microphone in case someone. someone nearby would know what had happened.
It’s safe to say that commentators on the net were left speechless at what just happened, as well as the streamers’ nonchalant response to the theft.
This is far from the first time that a streamer has detected a theft in real time; in 2019, broadcaster Giannie Lee filmed a pickpocket grabbing someone’s wallet, who ended up “returning” the item after realizing it had been taken in 4K.
Fortunately, according to an Instagram post from German streamers, the thief was caught and their guitar returned, which pleasantly ended an otherwise unpleasant situation, marking another chapter in the ongoing annals of Twitch’s most shocking moments.
