When one of his friends joked “I wouldn’t call them lovely…” Myth shot back. “Stop it! They are all lovely people. I’m actually getting really emotional!” he paused, before exhaling as he took the moment in.

After having time to sort his thoughts on it, the Twitch star finally addressed his audience. “The past year and a half has been the most wild experience of my life, and obviously I let down a lot of people in the Fortnite community not being able to play competitively.”

Myth than began to choke up with tears. “But um, you know, not meeting the expectations people wanted me to do…” he said, covering his eyes as he cried.

“For the longest time I was really really sad about going live, because it just didn’t feel good. And I’ve been working really hard to flip things around. So it really means a lot that so many people are here right now.”

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
