Popular streamers ‘Jake’n’Bake’ and ‘Hachubby’ got together to create a Kpop-themed music video at the behest of Tempo Storm— and their joint creation included a humorous callout toward certain Twitch viewers.

Esports and entertainment organization Tempo Storm tasked Jake’n’Bake with a unique challenge, asking him create a Kpop song from scratch, live on Twitch.

Of course, Jake didn’t disappoint — but his subject matter contained a hilarious storyline, told from the point of view of an overly enthusiastic male fan of a female streamer.

Streamer Jake’n’Bake was tasked by Tempo Storm to create a Kpop song live on Twitch – and he delivered with a hilarious result.

Internet regulars will have seen the term ‘simp’ thrown around on online spaces, which is generally used to refer to male fans who will do anything to impress a female content creator or social media personality.

The word has seemed to replace the once-popular ‘white knight’ phrase, and was the subject of Jake’s song “Just a Simp,” which follows the story of ‘simp’ Jake trying to catch the attention of social media mogul ‘Evelyn.’

Twitch star HAchubby brought her unique sense of humor to her collaborative song with Jake’n’Bake, calling out ‘simp’ culture on Twitch.

Jake uploaded a music video for the song to his YouTube channel on March 5, which included choreography from dancing group ‘The Fatal Dance Girls’ and placed HAchubby in the role of the object of his affections.

The two streamers’ hilarious sense of humor and surprising musical talent made for an entertaining video, which contained a slew of tongue-in-cheek quips about ‘simps’ on Twitch.

“I want more stupid viewers,” HAchubby raps in Korean. “I want more donations for my channel / I just have to change clothes and sweet talk / It’s easy for me.”

“Currently a VIP, one day an M-O-D,” Jake’n’Bake continues. “If I ever miss action, I’ll just watch the V-O-D.”

That’s not all: Tempo Storm also uploaded two separate videos of the streamers’ music-making process, including their work in the studio and even showing how they filmed the music video on Twitch.

This marks one of the internet’s more ambitious projects, filmed in front of a live online audience with two of Twitch’s top content creators.

While the song might not top the music charts, it’s certainly a testament to how far creative projects have come — and how interesting they can be when put on the spot in front of thousands of people.

Borat set for first-ever Twitch stream alongside DrLupo: how to watch

Borat is one of the most iconic characters in the world, and now the Kazakh journalist is set to make his first appearance on Twitch tomorrow where he will ‘face off’ against DrLupo; here’s how to watch.

Borat is more than a national treasure to Kazakhstan. He’s a global icon and one of the funniest characters in the world.

Sacha Baron Cohen first slipped into the Borat persona back in the nineties. But although he appeared in several hilarious skits and cameos, he didn’t explode in popularity until 2006, when the feature-film ‘Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan’ released worldwide.

For those who haven’t seen it, it’s a mockumentary that revolves around unscripted real-life interactions. Sacha Baron Cohen pretends to be Borat, a journalist from Kazakhstan. He travels around the US to learn more about their culture.

But he purposefully presses their buttons and puts them in hilarious situations. He winds up people from all walks of life, which sometimes lands him in hot water.

Fortunately, we’re lucky enough to experience it all over again with the imminent release of the sequel, ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.’

Seth Rogen claims he has already seen it around six times and said he “can’t wait to watch it a seventh.” He described it as “crazy and wonderful” and believes it has “a few of the funniest scenes [he’s] ever seen in a movie.”

But that’s not all. To promote the movie, Twitch announced that Borat will make his first-ever appearance on their platform.

“For the first time ever, Kazakhstan’s biggest gamer will go live on Twitch,” the Amazon-owned platform announced on Oct. 20. “Very nice.” The best part is, he will ‘face off’ against DrLupo “in a battle for global supremacy.”

The stream goes live on October 20 at 3 pm PT. If you want to know where and how you can watch it, we’ve got you covered.

How to watch Borat stream on Twitch

  • First, you’ll obviously need to wait until the time is right. However, it’s a good idea to tune in a little earlier as most streamers kick things off with a ten-minute countdown.
  • Then, all you need to do is tune in to DrLupo’s Twitch channel, which can be found here.
  • From that point onwards, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

There has been no official word on what games they’ll play. DrLupo has been dabbling in a bit of everything lately, from 7 Days To Die and Escape From Tarkov to Genshin Impact. Maybe even a bit of Among Us might be on the cards.

Of course, it’ll depend on what games Borat has available. For all we know, he might be an absolute machine on Call of Duty: Warzone or League of Legends. But we’re not counting on it.

Either way, the stream is going to be a blast, and we can’t wait until it goes live.
