An NBA 2K streamer and YouTuber went wildly viral after a clip surfaced from his broadcast where he had to deal with some ruthless bullies in the ‘park’.

The park is NBA 2K’s PVP location, where players can take their ‘MyPlayer’ character and join up in casual scrimmage matches against others, and can rank up by winning.

Players often take these matches very seriously, as young streamer NoLimitJay found out the hard way, as his random teammates hurled insults at him relentlessly.

However, unbeknownst to him, another NBA 2K YouTuber, TrulyAngel, had happened upon the livestream, and captured the whole thing.

Posting the footage on October 13 to his Twitter page, Truly Angel explained, “I join a random streamer and hear this. I’m sorry but I’m dying.”

The clip quickly racked up over 100,000 likes and 33,000 retweets, earning it over two million views in the process.

People were very sympathetic towards the young player, who handled the whole situation well, barely retaliating but defending the insults towards his mother particularly.

Fellow YouTuber YaBoyEJ revealed that he was making a funny video version of the clip to help bring more exposure to NoLimitJay.

Fortnite pro Aydan also weighed in, slamming the bullies for their ruthless attack on the young player. 

Some argued that it was only a game and that trash talk has always been part of the online multiplayer experience, but many disagreed, feeling that the ‘bullies’ had gone over the top in this instance.

In the end, the situation has worked out very positively for NoLimitJay, who, thanks to the viral video, has gained over 4,000 new Twitter followers, an increase from only 208 previously, as well as almost an extra 1,000 YouTube subscribers.

So in the end, he had the last laugh, while the bullies are probably still struggling to win games in the park.

The Pokemon community was stunned after a Twitch streamer was able to imitate Pikachu’s voice to perfection. The personality sounds so much like the Nintendo mascot that she could easily be mistaken for the real thing.

For nearly three decades, Pokemon’s mascot Pikachu has had the same voice. First created by Japanese actress Ikue Ōtani in 1997, children and adults around the world instantly recognize the iconic sounds of the adorable ‘mon.

Fans of the Nintendo RPG were blown away when a Twitch streamer shared her mind-blowing impression of the character during a live broadcast on December 4. The online personality could easily be mistaken for the electric mouse.

Twitch streamer has the perfect Pikachu impression

Variety streamer ‘Saiiren‘ had just kicked off her December broadcast when she admitted to her audience that she had been going through older clips. The personality explained that she was surprised at how much higher-pitched she used to sound.

A viewer then asked if her she was able to mimic Pikachu’s voice. “Can you do the Pikachu voice?” she read aloud before imitating voice lines the beloved character is known for.

Her chat instantly lost it, floored by how accurate she sounded.  Comments like “wow that was a good Pikachu” flooded her chat. Saiiren then confessed, “I liked being a voice actress. It was one of things I liked doing back then when I was younger.”

A clip of her accurate impression made its way on Reddit where readers were stunned by how much she sounded like the iconic Japanese character. “Holy s**t this is actually super accurate,” one user wrote. Another echoed a similar sentiment: “I wasn’t expecting it to be this close. Holy s**t.”

Shockingly, the streamer went on to reveal that she isn’t actually a voice actor, although she clarified that she wants to be. With how mind-blowing her Pikachu impression is, surely her future in the entertainment industry is looking bright.

Despite releasing in 1996, the Pokemon franchise is now more popular than it’s ever been. The series will officially celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2021, which will no doubt heavily feature the game’s beloved yellow mascot.
