Believing the threat to be real, Speed was visibly shaken and overwhelmed, finding himself pushed against a wall and instructed to sit down by one of the hooded figures.
The terrifying ordeal peaked as the streamer, with his hands raised, pleaded for forgiveness, fearing for his safety. However, in a sudden twist, the individuals involved in the prank revealed themselves, ending the intense episode.
