TSM’s Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani has struck gold once again as his near-flawless impersonation of fellow streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel blew the lobby away in a recent Among Us stream.

Among Us has taken Twitch by storm over the past few weeks as many of the biggest personalities have flocked to the title. While xQc was initially leading the charge in terms of viewership, Myth has always been close behind, streaming to thousands of viewers on a near-daily basis. 

One thing Myth has built a reputation for as a result of the Among Us hype: impressions. From others in his lobby to random Twitch personalities, he’s never afraid of taking on the voice of someone else. Naturally, that comes in handy in a game all about getting players on your side.

While Myth has adopted the tone and delivery of xQc in the past, his latest delivery might be the most impressive yet.

From Amaz to Dakotaz, every other streamer in the lobby was left stunned.

With a new round having only just kicked off, two players were killed in the opening round. With eight others in the lobby, anyone could have been an imposter. When questioned on his positioning, Myth was asked to explain himself in xQc’s voice.

“Ok dude… so listen,” he said without hesitation. Immediately his voice had changed up, the pace of his speech was completely different, even how loud he spoke was different in order to match xQc.

As others laughed over his speech, he raised his voice to stop them all, just like the Canadian streamer would. “How would I get to Medbay?” Myth asked, taking intentional pauses between almost every word. “It makes zero sense. Ok dude, vote me off dude, I give up, this lobby is ridiculous dude.”

After voting for himself to complete the impression, everyone else in the lobby chimed in with some serious praise. “That was really good, you should have been xQc for Halloween.” One player even unmuted their microphone to give Myth credit for his acting chops. “That was the best thing I’ve ever heard.”

All of the biggest streamers have been playing Among Us lately but Myth might have the best impressions to throw lobbies off.

While the impression itself was amusing, it actually worked in his favor as well. While some players may have been suspicious at the start, the self-vote bait led to everyone else skipping their votes.

Myth, or should we say xQc, survived through to the next round as a result.

TikTok’s most-followed content creator, Charli D’Amelio, has invested in her very first startup, and it’s a $50 million mobile banking service specifically aimed at teenagers.

In true D’Amelio fashion, Charli has decided to invest in her first company, Step, along with a slew of other celebrity investors.

What is Step?

Step is a mobile banking service directed toward teenagers aged 13-19, which announced this morning that it has raised over $50 million during its Series B funding stage.

Step has grown to over 500,000 users in two months after its official launch, and features a variety of elements seen in apps like Venmo and PayPal, allowing users to send money to friends via peer-to-peer technology.

The service also offers its teen customer-base FDIC-insured bank accounts without any fees, easing their foray into the financial world. Step even gives users a Visa card that allows them to establish credit prior to turning 18.

As for Charli D’Amelio, she seems to be quite jazzed about the bank’s entire concept, having risen to prominence in the mobile world before turning 16 this year.

“As a Step partner and customer, I’ve been able to see firsthand how easy Step makes it to manage your money while providing the educational resources that today’s teens need but have largely been unable to find—myself included,” D’Amelio stated.

“I’m excited to be able to use my platform to help close this gap and have made a direct investment in Step to help them develop even more useful products.”

Charli isn’t the only big name putting some stock into Step; A-list celebs like Will Smith, the Chainsmokers, and Justin Timberlake are also investing in the bank, making for a truly star-studded affair for the emerging company.

Step is planning to partner with even more celebrities and influencers in the future, and hopes to help its teenaged customer-base with everything from student loans to building credit in the long-term.

Step aims to help teenagers ease into the confusing financial world.

“Student loans are a big thing. Being able to extend credit to these folks. Being able to offer new products and services so they’re not paying these outrageous, predatory banking fees and high interest credit cards,” Step CEO MacDonald said of the service.

It looks like Charli is making big waves with this major investment, and all eyes are peeled to see if her 101 million TikTok followers will hop onto the Step trend, too.
