YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg is no stranger to receiving random requests from various celebrities, but a demand from Elon Musk to host ‘Meme Review’ surely took the cake.

PewDiePie’s popular ‘Meme Review’ segment has seen its fair share of guests in the past, but none quite like Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk.

When Musk posted a hilarious Tweet on January 27 demanding to host ‘Meme Review’ with PewDiePie, he quite literally set the internet aflame.

Unsurprisingly, the Tweet went viral and PewDiePie seemed to appreciate all the help and attention he could get in the midst of his battle with T-Series.

Bringing up the issue at the start of his January 29 video, PewDiePie looked to initially be confused about what sort of weapon Musk was wielding in the Tweet.

“Last night before I went to sleep, the absolute mad lad, Elon Musk, posted a Tweet,” PewDiePie said through fits of laughter. “Is that a gatling gun? What is that??”

Regardless of what Musk was wielding, PewDiePie was nonetheless happy to receive the support and issued a new call to action for his 83 million subscribers on YouTube.

“See what I’m talking about? We’re not handing out posters anymore. We’re going to war,” declared PewDiePie. “We have Elon Musk on our side.”

While there’s no word on whether Musk will actually show up on ‘Meme Review” anytime soon, it certainly wouldn’t be outside the realm possibility given that PewDiePie managed to get Ben Shapiro on the show back in November.

PewDiePie could surely use the help, too, since T-Series is still steadily gaining on him, only trailing by just over 200,000 subscribers at the time of writing.

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.
