Streamer buys virtual t-shirt for $225,000 – I can’t believe it myself
What happened? In his live stream, the streamer delved into the gaming platform Roblox. On Roblox you can also buy many different items for different game worlds and your own character. However, the items in Roblox are paid for in real money, which is initially converted into Roblox virtual currency. In his live stream, a YouTuber discovered a virtual T-shirt that caught his eye, and the price was also a real bargain: 18 million Robux (equivalent to around 225,000 US dollars or 200,000 euros).
In the stream, IShowSpeed was fooling itself and jokingly asked the app if it should buy the product. The program responds to the YouTuber with “No”. Then it happens: whether it is due to cheerfulness, contempt or the touch of a higher spirit is not entirely clear. IShowSpeed called rapper Drake and is known for such unique situations.
However, the YouTuber completes the purchase of the product with a short click – and seconds later owns a virtual shirt emblazoned with the face of the movie character “Shrek”. Good thing he spent almost a quarter of a million dollars on it. The seller will be happy.
At the same time, the influencer is aware of what has happened. He is angry, he cannot believe himself and then he realizes with tears that the truth has caught up with him. The clip ends with the lobbyist ripping the headset off his head and staring into space, stunned. IShowSpeed jumped into the game specifically to see CR7 – when the football player was not there, he made such a face. At this point we have included our video on the topic.

Here’s how the community is reacting: The streamer’s community is excited about the incident, but some users are also confused or believe the video to be fake. Sympathy is rare in comments.
- Daddydanilo commented: “He should have listened to the program, which knew what was going on.”
- Myfans writes: “He could buy a used Lamborghini with the money.”
- Nuncio Caesar adds: “You guys forget that he probably made a lot of money and a ton of extra viewers from that clip, so maybe it was worth it.”
It is not yet clear whether the broadcaster will ever see its money again or whether it is likely to reverse the purchase. However, since IShowSpeedgogigo, oneisisis is it is it that it earns a good income and several millions of YouTube followers, this issue should not mean financial ruin for the 18-year-old influencer.
