Streaming star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has added another incredible accomplishment to his resume after walking the stage during New York Fashion Week, one of the world’s biggest annual fashion shows.

Regarded as one of the “Big Four” fashion shows alongside London, Milan, and Paris, New York Fashion Week has always brought in some of the biggest names in the industry to style their new looks and outdo their biggest competitors.

It is the pinnacle of high fashion and is often reserved for the most elite of the elite – which, now, Ninja seems to be a part of, as he was flown to the Big Apple to walk the stage and showcase his fashion prowess.

Ninja took to the East Coast state with Red Bull, one of his biggest long-term sponsors, to appear for MLS side New York Red Bulls, who will be kicking off their season on March 1 – almost four weeks after Ninja’s walk.

Ninja’s role was as part of the MLS kit launch, where each team took to the stage to show off their new jerseys for 2020 as the league celebrates 25 seasons. He donned the black and red Red Bulls jersey over an orange track jacket, complete with navy tracksuit bottoms and bright red sneakers.

Posting some of the images to Twitter, Ninja describes the experience as: “Just another incredible achievement for me,” before thanking his “Red Bull family.”

Of course, Ninja has become much bigger than simply being a gamer or a streamer now. He is a universal mainstream star in his own right and was treated as such when he visited New York City.

In the middle of the famous Herald Square, right next to Macy’s flagship store, a billboard depicting Ninja in a Red Bulls jersey hung high over the heads of the New Yorkers, which not many professional gamers can say they’ve experienced.

Although Ninja on a fashion show may sound odd at first, the pictures prove that he’s got a knack for it, and who knows – maybe one day he’ll be up there representing the biggest brands in fashion.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.

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.
