IRL Twitch streamers are an interesting sub-category of streamers on the platform mainly because there are times when there’s really nothing happening. On the other hand, these streamers can on occasion have odd occurrences captured on Twitch such as one of the latest incidents where a bird snatched lunch from a performer on the fly.
A Polish “In Real Life” Twitch streamer that goes by the username AikoiEmil tends to get his views thanks to the fact that most of his IRL streams have some really nice scenery. Most recently he’s put out more than a few streams where he’s hanging out near a shoreline right by the ocean. While the place where he’s hanging out certainly seems like a good spot to have a little lunch, it turns out that he’s not the only one who thinks that.
In the recent clip AikoiEmil is shown just sitting on a stone bench, enjoying lunch by the ocean while chatting with his followers on Twitch. Things start to take a turn as a large bird can be seen in the background circling the area, apparently looking for its own lunch. As the streamer went to take another bite of his tasty-looking sandwich, a bird can be seen swooping down and quickly snatching the food out of his hand.
Because this particular occurrence wasn’t as serious as the time when IRL Twitch streamer who had their phone stolen right on stream, those watching the incident with the bird immediately started posting just how funny the incident was. Meanwhile, the streamer seemed crestfallen that his lunch was going to be in the stomach of the bird instead of his own.
Compared to some other streamers, the clip was indeed pretty tame. There have been plenty of IRL clips that show some of the Twitch streamers get into pretty dangerous situations. Some of those situations seem to be intentional and other times it’s been out of their control.
The issues that arise from IRL Twitch streaming have convinced more than a few streamers that this type of performance isn’t for them. While the weird occurrences that can occur might be one reason why people stay away from this kind of stream, popular streamer Emiru once explained she would never do it because it can way too easy for followers to figure out where they are and come to harass them. Taking that into account, it appears that AikoiEmil got off easy just getting harassed by a hungry bird.
