Popular Twitch streamer and Fortnite legend Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has called for the help of Fiverr actor Voice Over Pete, in the hopes of creating a meme-worthy advertisement for his livestream.

Ninja tagged the actor in a Tweet on November 7, asking Pete to create a video advertising Twitch Prime subscriptions to his channel.

“Yo, Voice Over Pete, I will get this Victory royale dub,” Ninja Tweeted. “If you do an, ‘ATTENTION! Ninja needs your prime sub!’”

His post didn’t go unanswered: Voice Over Pete actually responded to Ninja’s request in another Tweet, hinting at a possible collaboration between the two.

“Today I wake the sun up and say shine, this is the dawn of a new age when titans meet as friends,” Pete wrote. “Ninja, you, sir, shall have your meme production. We shall meet on the battlefield. Let the games begin! Okay, this IS EPIC. OMGG”

Ninja’s post follows news of Pete’s sudden ban from Fiverr, an online collective for freelance services. Pete was banned from the platform for a Fortnite-themed video he had been paid to create, which jokingly asked for viewers’ credit card information.

Pete addressed his ban in a humorous YouTube video, where he revealed that Fiverr hadn’t even refunded pending orders for his services. Instead, the site limited the funds for use on Fiverr, alone. 

Pete is now looking for ways to expand his opportunities in the wake of his ban, and will even start his own Twitch channel, where he will play Ninja’s game of choice: Fortnite.


Pete has since ceded to Ninja’s request, and created an ‘epic’ video to help advertise the streamer’s channel. Check it out below:

Twitch bot finds PS5s and Xbox Series Xs in-stock so you don’t have to

A popular new Twitch bot is doing all the legwork to help gamers find out what stores have PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles in stock.

Gamers have been hard-pressed to find a next-gen console for themselves or loved ones as the Christmas season approaches. It seems like almost everywhere is sold out, leaving only scalpers who have been selling units for insane markups.

Now, a new Twitch bot has entered the fray and is helping anyone who can’t keep up with the constant refreshing know when they can get their hands on Sony or Microsoft’s new console.

Viewers can simply go to the Twitch channel and watch live as the bot searches through various sites to find inventory. The bot will actively check through Walmart, Amazon, Best Buy, and more and state whether they’re out of stock or have consoles in.

As a nice little bonus, the channel even says when the last “drop” was. At the time of publishing, the last store to get both consoles in stock was Walmart at 9:30 PM EST on November 25.

Users can also use the !local command to check any store stock near them.

According to Polygon, the channel is run by Cam Ritz and uses a program called streetmerchant that does the monitoring.

The program’s features page state that it “scrapes multiple websites for patterns of being stocked via API and Chromium.”

Ritz claims that so far, the bot has helped viewers actually find consoles – with a few nabbing Series Xs from GameStop and Sam’s Club.

Unfortunately, for most viewers, watching the stream will result in a near-endless red wave of OUT OF STOCK notifications, further cementing just how difficult it is to find a console this year.

As the days continue and the Christmas season approaches, keeping this channel open may be a great tool if you’re actively still looking for a PS5 or Xbox Series X. Or for those who have managed to already snag a console, it can serve as a reminder of just how difficult it can be.
