100 Thieves’ Avalanche forgets how clocks work in hilarious Twitch stream

Avalanche, a popular content creator for 100 Thieves and The Mob, chose to walk away from his camera in embarrassment after completely forgetting how time works while playing Visage. 

The player, who has over 30,000 followers on the platform, was streaming the horror survival game during a broadcast on September 16, alongside Froste – who is also part of The Mob content creation team for the organization. 

However, it wasn’t any of those scary moments that caught the attention of most fans, more so the fact that the title was playing so many tricks on him that he forgot how clocks operate – much to the satisfaction of both the chat and his teammate. 

SadSquare StudioVisage was released in October, 2018, and has a number of creepy areas just waiting to be explored in-game.

The pair, who were playing the game together, took their character inside a bloody kitchen setting in darkness. Just moments later, Avalanche was so confused about the whole situation that he mentioned something about the clocks. 

He said: “Maybe there’s something on there that we need. Why do all the clocks say 3:33? I mean, look. Look down,” before the other player started roasting him about his confusion.

“Maybe it’s 3:33? I mean, why would they say different numbers? Why would the clocks say different numbers,” Froste replied, trying to contain the laughter. 

Still out of shot, the streamer started tearing into the game. “I can’t think. I can’t even think anymore. My IQ is deteriorating, sitting here playing this shitty, scary, bloody ass game bro. Oh my goodness,” he added.

There’s no doubt that these horror-style games can have an amusing affect on the players, at least from a viewer’s standpoint – making them afraid of their own shadow at times. 

However, not many of Avalanche’s viewers would have been expecting something as basic as this to slip his mind. Nevertheless, it has proved to be a viral moment that will live long in the memory of the channel he’s created, having eclipsed over 100,000 views in one clip alone.

It capped off a rough 24 hours for the popular personality who saw his account on Twitter suspended again, after becoming the victim of a prank that involves the mass reporting of an unverified account with DMCA requests.

Just one day following the announcement that U.S. politician Alexandria ‘AOC’ Ocasio-Cortez would be streaming on Twitch, her very first Among Us broadcast shattered expectations as one of the most-watched events to date.

The Amazon-owned streaming platform has seen a number of historic moments of the years in gaming culture. From groundbreaking Fortnite streams between Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Drake, to Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek’s enormous return. Now, AOC has penciled in her spot among the history books too. 

After an out of the blue tweet on October 19, AOC revealed that she was up to streaming for a good cause. The politician had her sights set on playing Among Us in order to promote proper voting plans ahead of the 2020 Presidential election.

She soon had an all-star lineup of crewmates and imposters as everyone from Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys to Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo lined up to join her. Before she even went live, tens of thousands had followed her account in preparation.

As things kicked off on October 20, her first-ever Twitch stream quickly exploded.

The gaming community gathered together to show support as her viewership skyrocketed. Before the first round even got underway, more than 400,000 viewers had jumped into the channel.

AOC streamed for just over three and a half hours. Among Us was in focus the entire time as she played the mega-popular indie game with a variety of gaming personalities.

Overall viewership peaked at roughly 439,000, though her account also passed the 500,000 follower mark shortly after as well.

It was one of, if not the most-watched Twitch streams from a brand new account.

For her first broadcast ever, it ranks highly among the most successful individual streams of all time. In fact, she’s now fifth overall when it comes to the most-watched streams in Twitch history. 

While major esports competitions and landmark events boast bigger numbers, AOC now sits atop Twitch with one of the biggest solo-streams of all time.

Her first appearance on Twitch one for the history books. Though she also showed off some great Among Us gameplay. Her very first elimination on Pokimane quickly blew up across social media and the hits kept coming throughout the session.

While it may be a one-off event, for the time being, AOC’s Twitch stream was one for the ages. Perhaps it’ll be sooner rather than later before she makes her way back to the spaceship for another Among Us stream.

The Congresswoman did tease another stream too: “Hopefully this isn’t my last!”
