CouRage reveals his “proudest streaming moment,” and it’s pretty iconic

Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop has had a very successful transition from caster to streaming star, with plenty of favorite moments to pick from in his career. However, one highlight with Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar apparently stands out from the rest.

CouRage went from being one of Call of Duty’s biggest names, to one of gaming’s biggest names generally. The 100 Thieves streamer has one of the most dedicated fan bases in the space, following him on every big career move.

With years spent live on Twitch and other platforms, he’s got his fair share of moments to reflect on to pick a favorite. However, he did manage to narrow it down to one prank that caught dear friend TimTheTatman off-guard, much to his hilarity.

CouRage has been around for a while, with a fair share of “proud moments” to choose as his favorite.

Asking himself about his “proudest stream moment” on February 9, CouRage re-shared the clip from back on his days with Twitch.

“[My proudest moment was] when I went to Build-A-Bear, custom built a Syracuse bear for TimTheTatman’s son, shipped it across the country, and coordinated with his wife to have him open it live on stream just so that he would squeeze the hand and have it plug my channel,” he said.

For the uninitiated, the prank dates back to August 2019, before the streamer defected from Twitch to YouTube. CouRage sent a present to the streamer for his young son in the colors of his favorite football team, Syracuse.

“Let’s see what we’ve got,” TimTheTatman said on-stream as he took a first look at his new present. “It looks pretty cool. It’s a SU Build-A-Bear. Wow, Jack built this himself.”

The teddy bear is a good idea for Tim to get his son onto the same page when it comes down to being football fanatics, but the dialogue CouRage added was a cheeky way to remind him who’s boss.

“Hey Baby Brewbrew, make sure you subscribe to with Twitch Prime⁠—” it said, before Tim silenced the bear to stop the hilarious advertisement.

Tim’s wife, Alexis, who was in on the whole thing, couldn’t stop laughing as the streamer stared deadpan into the camera. He had enough too, vowing to never trust CouRage again and saying “I hate my friends.”

TimTheTatman was less than impressed with the prank CouRage pulled on him.

CouRage bringing the moment back up months later must sting a little bit for Tim, given the fact it’s gained massive traction on Twitter with over 30,000 likes. However, he could also see the fun in it, sharing it with all his fans to regale in.

Now that CouRage has moved to YouTube, the soundbite might need to be updated. Tim might be more ready for the prank next time he receives a parcel from Dunlop, however, but one can only hope he falls for it a second time around.


Mr Beast giving $10,000 to whoever can ‘ratio’ him the hardest

In another wacky challenge, YouTuber Mr Beast has announced he will award $10,000 to whoever can ‘ratio’ him, or get the most likes in comparison to his tweet, with fandoms battling it out to have their fave crowned the winner.

Jimmy Donaldson a.k.a Mr Beast is well known for his grand scale challenges. And with 45 million subscribers on YouTube, he certainly has the means to facilitate them, often partnering up with his huge audience to make great things happen.

On the charitable front, one of Mr Beast’s most ambitious projects was ‘Team Trees,’ where he endeavored to raise the money required to plant 20,000,000 trees. He definitely succeeded, with over 500,000 unique users donating to the campaign.

Instagram: MrBeastMrBeast and his crew of over 600 YouTubers has raised over $20 million for Team Trees.

Among the philanthropy, Donaldson also previously set out to break some online records just for the fun of it. He set out to beat PewDiePie and have one of his videos become the most liked non-music video on YouTube. The video currently has a whopping 15 million likes.

With that in mind, he set his Twitter followers the task of ‘ratio-ing’ his original tweet. To ‘ratio’ someone means either for the number of comments to far outweigh the likes (usually when something is controversial,) or in this case to far outweigh the likes of the original tweet. Essentially, you have to get more likes than Mr Beast himself.

Originally, it looked like popular YouTuber Corpse Husband was going to win the money thanks to his reply tweet of a simple smiley face. Alongside the rise of Among Us, Corpse has experienced a huge surge in popularity in recent months, and said that he would be donating 100% of the money if won to charity.

However, just as it was looking as if Corpse would be sailing to victory unrivalled, a tweet from a BTS fan’s account saying “I know this is impossible but, If ever I win the funds will be directly donated to Funds for Bangtan and BorahaeFunds” began to pick up traction.

Their victory might not be as impossible as they first thought, with dedicated fans around the globe heading in droves to boost the tweet.

Mr Beast even joked “Hey Kpop fans, you about to let Minecraft youtubers show you up like this? Are they the new biggest fan base?”

At the time of writing, Mr Beast’s original tweet has 200,000 likes, Corpse Husband’s 233,000 likes, and BTS_History613’s tweet at 239,000. But with the numbers changing rapidly by the second, who the ultimate winner will be is yet unclear.
