Twitch and YouTube star Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins has unveiled the new Red Bull cans emblazoned with his likeness, as part of the energy drink company’s sponsorship of the Fortnite streaming sensation.

Ninja has been sponsored by Red Bull since 2016, and they took their partnership to a new level in 2018, when Red Bull kitted out his new luxurious streaming room.

Red Bull continues to support the world of esports and gaming stars, sponsoring organizations like 100 Thieves, professional players and of course streamers, and for the first time ever, a streamer will be featured on Red Bull cans.

Red Bull’s involvement in esports goes back further than most other non-endemic companies, as long time fans will know, their sponsorship of Halo player David ‘Walshy’ Walsh was a huge deal back in Halo’s hay-day.

They also signed up Matthew ‘Nadeshot‘ Haag (now the founder and CEO of 100 Thieves) when he was at the peak of his powers in Call of Duty, and now, or course, Ninja is the next big thing.

With over 13 million followers on Twitch, he has more than double the 2nd most followed channel, Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek, and has surpassed 20 million subscribers on YouTube too.

Like Walshy before him, Ninja also comes from a Halo background. In fact, he’s not the first Halo player to be featured on a can, as OpTic Gaming’s Michael ‘Flamesword’ Chavez featured on Red Bull’s Destiny cans in 2015.

2018 was a massive year for Ninja, cementing him as the most popular streamer and enjoying a meteoric rise up the ladder of gaming influencers to sit at the very top.

2019 has continued in a similar vein so far, and his new Red Bull can will be something he can cherish forever. The new can will be available starting April 1 to 4, while stocks last.

Sykkuno reveals new plans after leaving OfflineTV house

Sykkuno opened up about leaving the OfflineTV house and revealed he plans to move back in with family, but will stick around the Los Angeles area.

Sykkuno has only been a confirmed member of the OfflineTV house since August, but he’s already exploded in popularity. He deserves all the credit, though, since his content and input in collaborated streams has been thoroughly enjoyable.

It’s been a blast having him on board. However, Sykkuno ultimately decided not to stick around, and in one of his latest streams, he shared some details on what he’s planning to do next.

Sykkuno has been streaming for a while, but he’s become immensely more popular in recent weeks.

“As most of you guys probably know, [I’m] moving soon,” he said. “So, I’m probably not going to be streaming for a couple of days after today obviously because there’s a lot of moving stuff going on.”

Initially, Sykkuno is planning to move back in with his family, but then he’d evaluate his options and decide what to do next. “I’m probably moving home for a bit, and then we’ll figure it out after that,” he said.

Sykkuno also said he would “probably” stay in Los Angeles in the long run but isn’t planning to buy a house. “That’s a little too expensive for me,” he said. “I don’t think that’s quite happening.”

Sykkuno has been streaming Among Us on Twitch along with other popular streamers.

He described the move as a “bit of a hassle” but seemed excited about the future. He’s also adamant about not wanting to live alone. “I don’t want to live alone… I feel like it’s tough,” he said.

This hilariously opened the door for one fan to try and make an ambitious deal. “Pay for my rent, and I’ll live with you,” wrote the fan.

Sykkuno pondered for a moment and then jokingly pitched a counter-offer. “If you pay for my rent, I’ll there too, I suppose,” he said, laughing. “Thank you for the offer.”

Sykkuno didn’t mention anything else beyond that. However, if his meteoric rise continues to grow, the opportunities will be endless.

It comes after other OfflineTV members Scarra and Toast said that the OffliveTV house could be disbanding shortly.

“We can’t have a house that each of us have wives, husbands, our kids, and our pets living in once place,” Toast said in a recent stream.

It seems like Sykkuno’s fans will have his back no matter what he decides though. They’ve become a large and dedicated community in their own right.
