Streamer Maya Higa give one of Twitch’s most famous clips new life when she broke into a beautiful rendition of Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel’s classic setup rant.

Maya is one of the breakout stars of 2019 on Twitch, skyrocketing to the top of the platform’s Just Chatting section thanks to her amazing animal-based live streams, and hilarious moments with her boyfriend Mizkif.

The streamer is also a good singer, and one of her first broadcasts saw her singing to her audience saw her make $900 in donations, something that lead to an awkward but hilarious conversation with her parents.

Maya still breaks out into song occasionally on her channel, and during her November 14 stream, debuted an amazing new version of one of Twitch’s iconic moments.

Mayahiga has blown up since joining Twitch in early 2019.

While singing memes suggested by her Twitch chat, her audience started posting the words to xQc’s rant about how elaborate some streaming setups are, comparing them to the kind of thing NASA uses to fly spaceships.

The 21-year-old broke into a beautiful version, but even she couldn’t make it the whole way through, breaking down into fits of laughter once she got to the part about using cameras to show their pets on stream.

The song was incredibly accurate though, and if you want to compare it to the original version screamed by the former Overwatch pro, you can watch it below.

Unsurprisingly, Maya’s viewers were delighted with the song, spamming her chat with praise and reactions as she laughed at the meme, with some suggesting that she slam the desk just like xQc does when games like Overwatch aren’t going this way.

The streamer has yet to react to his fellow streamer’s version of the song, but it’s very likely he’ll have something to say, although who knows what could come out of the mouth of xQc.


Asmongold defends Forsen after learning the real reason for Twitch ban

Popular Twitch star ‘Asmongold’ went to bat for fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors after the Swede was banned from the platform on November 26.

At first, no one knew the real reason for Forsen’s ban, with some thinking it may have been DMCA-related. However, viewers soon discovered that for a brief moment in a recent broadcast he showed a gif of a horse in a very inappropriate scene.

Despite this, Asmongold decided to stick up for Forsen during his own broadcast and call out Twitch for banning him due to an honest mistake.

“How the f**k is that going to be TOS? If…I don’t understand. You’ve got other people and they’re going around showing Animal Planet,” he explained. “Like you see literal animals killing each other, but you see a horse’s d**k?”

To this, Asmongold makes an interesting point. There are streams on Twitch that document animals in the wild and they can get into some rather freaky situations that, while natural, aren’t exactly the kind of thing you’d show your boss.

“Listen, horses don’t wear clothes, you know that?” the streamer sarcastically stated. “So, if you look at a horse, you’re going to see their d**k. Like, that’s all there is to it. It’s weird, man.”

However, right after making this argument, the streamer learned that it wasn’t just the horse that got Forsen banned, but the girl who was in the gif with the animal that changed the whole conversation. Briefly, anyway.

“Okay, that’s a little bit different,” he confessed. “It’s a little bit more than what I thought it was.”

Despite this, Asmongold still defended Forsen for the mistake of showing the gif. “I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal. You show that for like a second, right? Cause it’s an accident.”

According to the popular World of Warcraft player, one second of footage shouldn’t determine a whole Twitch career. “That seems stupid to me,” he added. “But you know, here we are.”

Unfortunately for Forsen, the streamer says this time, his ban is indefinite and it’s unclear when, if ever, he will be unbanned.

Hopefully, with Asmongold speaking out, Twitch can agree to let this incident slide and let Fors back on the platform so he can stream again.
