YouTube streamer Darren “IShowSpeed” is no stranger to making his fan base laugh. In a recent stream, a YouTuber performed an outrageous slide at his computer after failing to score a goal in the Kinect Sports VR game.
Kinect Sports uses the Kinect motion sensing peripheral to detect the user’s movement. The game includes six sports: ten-pin bowling, boxing, athletics, table tennis, beach volleyball and association football.
IShowSpeed decided to play football and after failing to score a goal during the match, he had to perform a slide on the opponent in the game. However, the streamer miscalculated his movements and crashed the Kinect peripherals.

IShowSpeed has once again proven why it is one of the best trimmed streamers in the community. In a stream recorded this weekend (January 7), the 17-year-old was seen playing Kinect Sports.
While playing soccer, the streamer found himself on the defensive after handing possession to the AI. Darren thought he was tasked with making gear, so he went straight to his computer, dropped the camera, and unplugged the PS4.
After spending a few moments in pain, the streamer figured out a way to reset his system and continue the match. He ended up losing the match 4:2. His ill-advised solution was one of the highlights of the stream and much to the amusement of the fans.
How fans reacted to his intervention
