An Overwatch streamer made the bizarre choice to perform a potentially dangerous task during his broadcast in exchange for a Twitch sub from a member of his chat.
The life of a streamer can be hard when starting out at the bottom, as it take hundreds of hours of consistent broadcasts before they can build a large following to their channel.
It's also not above some personalities to do crazy things to fast-track that process, from anything to IRL broadcast pranks, to being risque – all in the pursuit of getting subscribers.
However, one streamer added another antic to the list when he performed a questionable task during his broadcast, and did so for a Twitch sub from a person in his chat.
Streamer 'PuzzlingGames' was in the middle of his broadcast when he paused for a break from his game, and took on the challenge of snorting popular energy formula G FUEL to get a Twitch sub from an audience member.
The Overwatch player took the powder from out of the container and put it on his table, forming it into a line, and stated "F*ck it!" before taking it into his nose and performing the outrageous stunt.
He immediately began to cough and exclaimed, "F*ck yeah! Do that Twitch Prime!" before telling his chat, "I want a clip of that!" The streamer then continued to press his finger into the side of his nose.
When his friend asked him how he was doing, PuzzlingGames replied, "I'm crying bro. Oh my god my eyes!" before he began to cough again. The streamer then blew his nose into a napkin.
"Holy sh*t!" he yelled, as he continued to blow his nose to get the substance out. "I am dying, I need water now. Give me my water. I'm literally, there's tears forming from my eyes!"
"I'm gonna get banned now. It's just G FUEL!" the Twitch streamer exclaimed, holding the energy powder's container up to the camera. "It's okay, I'm cracked!"
The streamer commented on his stunt on his Twitter on November 23, tweeting, "Tonight I snorted G FUEL... Sellout for Twitch Prime."

According to PuzzlingGames' Twitch bio, the streamer says he's 20 years old, and that Overwatch is "basically his life," although he streams a variety of other games as well.
It should go without saying that it's not safe to ingest any substance into your nose, let alone G FUEL, although if nothing else, this is just another example of the lengths streamers will go to get subs.
