Esfand, Nmplol and Malena did an IRL stream at a car meet on Sunday morning. They called the stream “Supercar Sunday”. They brought in a trio of cars, including a Porsche from fellow streamer Sodapoppin, as well as an Audi R8 and a Nissan GTR.
They got OTK’s new IRL stream backpack to work with. The setup cost about $50,000, including a $13,000 antenna, according to Nmplol. As the streamers discussed the backpack, Esfand asked why they invested so much money in the antenna. Coincidentally, the backpack momentarily lost its signal while popping the question, making for a comedic moment.

Esfand questions new antenna as backpack loses signal
The OTK streamers did something different for Sunday’s stream on Nmplol’s channel. The trio went to a car meet to see some supercars. They called the stream “Supercar Sunday”.
The group brought a few supercars of their own, including a Nissan GTR, an Audi R8 and a blue Porsche GT3 owned by Sodapoppin, which Nick said he originally planned to join at the car meet.
OTK also gave them a new IRL streamer backpack to use, which Nmplol says has cost the organization $50,000. During the meeting, he discussed the backpack’s specs with Esfand, who said the backpack’s base is similar to his own IRL Stream backpack:
“This backpack is the same basic unit as my backpack.”
He asked Nick why the backpack was so expensive, to which he explained that the antenna alone cost $13,000. The streamer questioned the purpose and implied it was unnecessary:
When asked why the antenna was so expensive, the backpack accidentally lost its signal and briefly froze the stream. Comedic timing wasn’t lost on the Twitch chat, which was responding with a multitude of “Fs” at the moment.
The power returned quickly as the conversation moved beyond talking about the backpack. A few fans came and greeted the streamers. They asked them which of the three cars they liked the most, to which the fans replied that Nick’s GTR was their favourite. He was happy about that, because the crowd favorite up until then had been Sodapoppin’s blue Porsche.
Before the stream froze briefly, fans asked if the backpack might have overheated. Esfand said that wasn’t the case, but it’s possible summer weather in Texas is causing some problems.
Fans are reacting to the OTK backpack’s hilariously timed technical issue
Nmplol commented on the clip’s R/LivestreamFail post. They are the guinea pigs for the new backpack, he explained right at the beginning of the stream and tested it live for the first time on Sunday. He promised that the technical issues in the stream would be fixed in the future.
Fans still questioned OTK’s investment, citing Esfand’s ongoing issues with his own backpack, as well as other IRL streamers getting the same quality from their phones.
Hopefully for OTK that they untie their new backpack so they can get a return on their investment.
