When it comes to menacing birds, it’s my opinion that magpies are right fucking up there, especially for us Aussies. Need more evidence? Remember that time Twitch user Lynchy was playing Valorant when, all of sudden, a magpie entered the room and started to cause a commotion?

“What the fuck. Oi, get out of here,” the 28-year-old said, getting out of his chair. “There’s a fuckin’ magpie in my house.”

As soon as he sat down, though, in an effort to compose himself, the magpie greeted his head.

And when I say greeted, I mean slammed into his face at high speed. A brutal collision, but one that was miraculously caught on camera.

Here’s the now-iconic Twitch attack in two parts…

This magpie has obviously shown a complete disregard for social distancing. Not good. Check out the clash below.

In the mood for some more livestream mishaps on this glorious summer day? Of course you are. The schadenfreude be real. Feast your eyes on this reporter’s tooth falling out during a news segment, this other reporter accidentally flashing her husband’s pee-pee, and two British toddlers successfully hijacking TV interviews. Enjoy. You’re so welcome.
