GoT’s The Mountain shocked after Twitch chat saves his cat on stream

While Game of Thrones may be over, the show’s famous antagonist, ‘The Mountain,’ continues to enjoy a healthy streaming career — and it’s thanks to his viewers that his cat was saved from an untimely demise.

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, better known by his Game of Thrones moniker ‘The Mountain,’ boasts a wide variety of talents, including being a legendary Icelanding strongman with the title of World’s Strongest Man.

However, he’s also picked up a successful streaming career following his Game of Thrones accomplishments, where he’s garnered an impressive 157k followers on the ever-popular broadcasting platform.

While live streams are a haven for all sorts of unexpected debacles in real-time, a bit of collaboration between Hafthor and his Twitch chat produced an unforgettable moment — and ended up rescuing his feline friend, in the process.

During a July 5 stream, Hafthor was showing off the contents of his closet to his fans when his pet cat (adorably named Loki) shot inside the doorway and underneath a shelf, out of sight and, apparently, also out of mind.

Closing the door behind him, Hafthor thought nothing of the matter — until his Twitch chat started alerting him that his cat had been effectively trapped inside the closet.

“CAT CAT CAT CAT” one viewer spammed.

“Cat in right closet,” another warned.

“Oh my god!” Hafthor’s wife, Kelsey Henson, exclaimed after the strongman opened up the door upon fans’ requests, allowing Loki to finally make his escape.

“F**k!” he shouted, putting his hands on his head in total shock. “I f**king locked him in the closet! Thank you, chat!”

“It’s a good thing somebody’s reading the chat!” she continued.

“The chat f**king saved the cat!” Hafthor interjected. “You f**king saved the cat, guys.”

This is far from the first time Twitch viewers have helped pet owners save their furry friends from similar situations; in early March, fans rushed to help save the pet of two IRL streamers, which had gotten trapped inside their fridge as they prepared a meal.

Although it’s no surprise that cats manage to get themselves into a flurry of sticky scenarios, it’s a good thing Twitch chat is always nearby to save the day (and it makes for a feel-good moment, too).

Popular content creator Hasan ‘HasanAbi’ Piker hilariously trolled fellow Twitch star Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek’s new look – comparing it to one of Sacha Baron Cohen’s styles in the new Borat sequel.

Big-name Twitch streamers are always sparking fun feuds between each other for fans to get invested in, as has been seen with the likes of Dr Disrespect, shroud, and more in the past.

Since shroud made his return to Twitch, it has not taken long for some of his fellow streamers to troll him after he debuted a new goatee on stream, instead of his regular clean-shaven look.

HasanAbi was the latest to poke fun at shroud’s choice of facial hair during his October 23 broadcast, comparing it to the new Borat movie.

Borat switches up his usual style for some scenes in the second movie.

Hasan, who’s risen to popularity on Twitch as both a gamer and political commentator was hosting a Twitch watch party for ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ on Amazon Prime. When a particular scene came up, he was quick to point out similarities between shroud and the main character.

While Borat is usually seen with a long mustache, there is a scene in the movie that sees him rocking a goatee and a pair of glasses, causing Hasan to pull up an image of shroud alongside.

“I have to show- oh my god guys, look at this,” he said, before trolling with a side-by-side image of Borat next to shroud.

Hasan could not help bursting into laughter – the match between the former CSGO pro and Cohen’s latest character is uncanny.

Dr Disrespect previously laid into shroud for his new facial hair, and the jokes are not letting up.

Shroud hasn’t clapped back yet, instead just letting his fellow streamers have their fun – while he rides high on his successful move back to Twitch, following the collapse of Mixer.
