Team SoloMid streamer Ali ‘Myth‘ Kabbani nailed a perfect impression of fellow Twitch superstar Nick ‘NICKMERCS‘ Kolcheff ordering food for his Fortnite duo Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan.

Aside from being one of the biggest Fortnite streamers on Twitch, Myth has established quite a reputation for his hilarious, and often on-point, impressions of other top content creators.

One of his favorite targets has been NICKMERCS, who is known for his strong personality and a very blunt and direct manner with which he often speaks to people.

Taking impersonation recommendations from his chat while livestreaming on September 12, one viewers asked Myth to create a very specific scene featuring Nick.

“‘Impression of NICKMERCS ordering at The Cheesecake Factory?’ What the f*ck?” he said, laughing. “That’s so random, but I kind of like that.”

MythMyth has added hilarious impersonations to his resume as an entertaining streamer.

He then broke seamlessly into the bit, pretending to be Nick ordering food for SypherPK at a restaurant.

“Hey PK, look at that man, they got the fully loaded burrito man, the chicken one. HONEY! Hey PK, listen man. I’m going to hook you up. They got the loaded burrito bro. It’s nuts, so good. Telling you, it’ll get you jacked too. You’re looking kind of scrawny bro, I’m not going to lie. You have to get those calories up.”

From the gruff voice, to yelling “HONEY!’ at his fiancee, and even the tiny stutters and word repetitions, there is no question that Myth’s impression of the former Gears of War pro was second-to-none.

He even managed to sneak in a slight jab a the pair of Fortnite players by replacing ‘HighDistortion’ at the table with FaZe Clan’s Nate Hill, in reference to the unexpected switch their team made for the remainder of the trios competitions. 

Unsurprisingly, the clip found its way to Nick, who could do nothing but laugh at probably how incredibly similar Myth sounded to his actual self, not to mention nailing those slight mannerisms down to a T.

Of course, this isn’t the first time that Myth has done such a quality impersonation of the Fortnite mega-star, having pulled off a perfect one earlier in the year that Nick also found very amusing.

He’s also done hilarious bits on other popular Twitch streamers, such as xQc and org-mate Hamlinz, even finding a way to slip in a slight roast about his height

JakeNBake hit with DMCA strike for Kanye song in two-year-old Twitch clip

Twitch star Jake “Jake’n’Bake” Abramson has revealed he could be “in danger of losing everything” he’s built on his channel after an old IRL clip from more than two years ago was hit with a DMCA copyright strike due to a Kanye West song.

The ongoing Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) drama sweeping across Twitch has spared no one from its reach. The new Twitch crackdown, which sees streamers pinged for licensed music on broadcasts, is the hot topic in the community right now.

One by one, Twitch’s biggest stars have been sucked into the DMCA drama; Imane “Pokimane” Anys was forced to delete her streaming back-catalog last week, and Michael “shroud” Grzesiek has called for stars to “unite” against the crackdown.

DragonForce’s Herman Li was also banned after DMCA flagged his own music.

Jake’n’Bake has become the latest Twitch streamer caught up in the DMCA drama.

Now, the latest star to find himself on the DMCA frontlines is Jake’n’Bake. The 30-year-old IRL star is one of the Amazon-owned platform’s biggest stars. He boasts nearly 500k followers, but that may now be in danger.

Jake’n’Bake revealed on Oct. 29 that he had been hit with a copyright infringement from Twitch. The kicker? The clip in question was from a May 9 stream all the way back in 2018, which contained just mere seconds of Kanye West’s ‘Lift Yourself.’

Jake’n’Bake gets DMCA strike for old Twitch clip

“Just to be clear… this is a 30-second clip from two and a half years ago,” Abramson wrote on Twitter soon after receiving the DMCA email.

The Twitch email detailed a “claimed infringement” on Jake’n’Bake’s old 2018 broadcast, where moments of the Kanye West song can be heard. The email warned JakeNBake could have his channel “terminated” if another offense is uncovered.

“It was from an outdoor IRL stream. I probably passed by a shop, or was in a place that was playing the song in the background… I’m now in danger of losing everything,” the Twitch star continued. “How is this even realistic?”

Jake’n’Bake, who admitted on-stream soon after that Twitch is “80% of his life,” is now rushing to download and clear his video back-catalog — 13,00 past VODS worth — in an effort to avoid that next promised DMCA strike.

“The biggest thing for me, and I think a lot of people are the same, because my stuff is IRL, there’s like three years of home videos. I love that they’re all in one place, and accessible,” he explained.

“It’s not like I just played games… for me, it’s like, in my heart, all these memories, and experiences. It’s disappointing because it just got a bit more real.”

“My fear is if I counter-ping this, and it chimes like a little ‘tick’, and some computer just turns at me and goes through everything like ‘f*ck you, f*ck you, f*ck you’… and starts pinging me for everything I’ve done! Maybe I should just delete everything so that can’t get me.”

He added later, “It’s kind of nuts how this is just controlling my life now. This was two and a half years ago! I don’t really know what to do except delete everything, which just sucks. There’s nothing else I can really do.”

The DMCA drama, unfortunately, looks set to continue into the foreseeable future on Twitch, with the platform sticking to their guns on the copyright stance.

We can layout the big names hit by the wave so far ⁠— Courage, BrookeAB, Scump, Ninja, Sonii, Mongraal, Lirik… the list goes on ⁠— and there’ll likely be more caught in the crackdown soon. Twitch has yet to comment on the most recent strikes.
