It turns out that sleeping while streaming can actually be a fairly lucrative endeavor, as Matthew ‘Mizkif’ Rinaudo revealed just how much he made throughout a recent Twitch broadcast.

Content creators are always trying to push the boundaries of what’s possible through streaming in order to stand out from the pack. Whether that’s involving WWE superstars in their streams or simply cosplaying as their favorite celebrities, there’s always something new to look out for.

Attempting to stand out from the crowd in a rather hassle-free way, however, popular streamer Mizkif decided to keep the cameras rolling while he got under the covers and had a sleep. Surprisingly, it turned out to be extremely lucrative.

Mizkif was laying in bed for roughly five hours on-stream.

After sitting in front of his camera entertaining viewers for three hours during a March 3 stream, Mizkif decided to mix things up a bit. He repositioned his camera, dragged some bedding into the room, and switched the lights off before saying goodnight to those in his chat.

With media share still active throughout his snooze, viewers would donate in order to play anything and everything they could think of to potentially wake him up and get under his skin.

For just over five hours the streamer laid there relatively silent and shortly after sitting back at his desk, Mizkif shared with his viewers how much money he raised while doing nothing of significance.

$5,594 was the final tally of donations for the stream which involved Mizkif “literally sleeping,” as he bluntly put it.

“I literally slept, and I made five thousand five hundred dollars doing nothing. So next time you think about how much streamers make who get non-stop [text-to-speech], think about it.”

Rather than using all of the money for himself however, Mizkif decided to share the love with his generous viewers and hand out a Nintendo Switch console to one lucky viewer.

Evidently an effective means of making money on the platform, this certainly isn’t the first time a Twitch streamer has dozed off on camera in front of thousands.

From xQc’s 35 hour broadcast to one unlucky streamer waking up with one of the most-viewed clips on the platform, sleeping on Twitch definitely has done a world of good for a number of streamers.

Strange occurrences continue to happen to David Dobrik; after being stalked by a “scary” viewer for days, the YouTuber has now become the unexpected owner of a kitten that was dropped off at his doorstep by an unknown person.

David Dobrik is one of YouTube’s biggest stars, boasting well over 19 million subscribers on the website, alone (not to mention his additional 14 million followers on Instagram).

Known for his high-energy vlogs and generous cash giveaways, it makes sense that his charitable nature has made him quite an impressive figure in the online world; but it seems his celebrity status is having some serious, real-world ramifications.

Earlier this week, Dobrik mentioned that he’d been stalked by a mentally disturbed viewer, who had sat outside his home for two days before keying his assistant’s blue Ford Bronco with odd symbols.

Luckily, Dobrik was able to get the fan the help she needed, after she claimed that voices inside her head had directed her to come to his home to get “answers” ; but that’s far from the strangest thing that has happened to the YouTuber in recent days.

In an Instagram story uploaded on October 8, Dobrik revealed video footage from his CCTV that showed a mysterious stranger placing a bag at his front gate before immediately turning away.

Luckily, it wasn’t a bomb or any other dangerous item. Instead, inside the bag was a Clickbait hoodie, a clear, plastic baggie full of makeup items, and a gray kitten.

“Someone dropped off this kitten at our front door,” the vlogger said while showing off the animal. “Please, take it back.”

While the rest of the Vlog Squad weren’t convinced that he hadn’t had someone over at the house previously, it seems that one of YouTube’s most popular personalities has become the unintended foster dad of a Russian Blue cat — which wouldn’t be a terrible development, for some cat lovers out there.

It’s not clear what Dobrik intends to do with the animal moving forward. You never know — the kitty might even become the newest member of the Vlog Squad!
