Each week we bring you two moments, one of epic success, someone who absolutely nailed it! And another of an epic failure, someone who totally failed it. This week for the Failed It we look to Australian streamer Lynchy and an unfortunate accident with a rogue bird. The streamer while playing Valorant live on stream was attacked by a bird.

Failed it! Bird attacks Streamer

Our nailed it’s isn’t always the fault of the person being featured. This is the case with Australian Streamer Lynchy. The Streamer was playing a game of Valorant when the magpie flew in through an open door. The door was open because Lynchy had just gotten a new puppy and wanted him to be able to go in and out as he needed. The magpie saw this as a perfect opportunity to cause some mayhem. In the clip, you can see Lynchy reacting to the bird entering his home, but he was also in the middle of a match of Valorant. He tried to sit back down to continue his came when…BOOM! Headshot…bird shot? As a streamer, getting attacked by a bird while live isn’t a memory you’re likely to ever forget.

Check out this week’s Nailed It, featuring a Twitter user who got a triple kill in Ghosts of Tsuhima.
