Twitch star Matthew ‘Mizkif’ Rinaudio was awoken from a deep sleep after he was trolled by his chat with a spam donation. The personality’s accidental stream disrupted his slumber.
Mizkif is one of the most watched streamers on Twitch, as his passion for the medium and entertaining broadcasts has made him a stand-out on the Amazon-owned platform.
However the personality’s dedicated viewership is not above trolling him when the opportunity arises. And on March 16, he was hilariously woken up from his sleep by a mischievous donation.
The streamer’s channel suddenly went live not long after midnight. However all that could be seen was a black screen as viewers began to flock to his broadcast. After a couple minutes of silence, Mizkif’s chat began to realize that he was asleep, and started sending donations like “Yo!” and “Wow!”
However when a viewer decided to spam an insanely large number, it repeated the sequence out loud which woke the Twitch personality up. “What the f**k? Was I live!? I swear to God I’m live” he said, while wrestling with the camera.
“How long have I been live?” he asked before he finally showed up on stream. Looking into the lens, he called out his streaming software. “Stream Labs, that is really f**king bad,” he exclaimed.
Another troll donation came in and began to spam the number seven out loud as the groggy streamer continued to fully wake up. Replying to his chat, he said “Yeah, I was asleep. I literally passed out. You woke me up with the 77 spam. I was not awake!”
He then called out his streaming software for turning on. “But that is really scary that I just went live. That’s terrifying that I just went live. I literally was sleeping. I thought that was coming from my room. I thought my Stream Labs was on!”
There was a party being held at Mizkif’s house where streamers like Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris attended. After having his slumber disrupted, he went out and mingled with guests. He ran into MTV star Andy Milonakis who hilariously rapped about his chat waking him up.
Considering most would be extremely grouchy to be awakened from a deep sleep, Mizkif seemed to take it in good stride. If anything, he appeared to be baffled as to why his broadcast started in the first place.
If nothing else, this is also a prime example of how a streamer’s chat can not resist a chance to troll. Not even rest is sacred if the opportunity presents itself to land a good prank.
