Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg continues to be confused by the rise of TikTok, the latest video sharing app to sweep the internet.  

After posting a video reacting to some cringey TikTok videos on October 9, PewDiePie has come back with yet another video in which he tries to come to grips with the app’s popularity.

Even though he still doesn’t understand why TikTok exists in the first place, he is nonetheless able to have some fun watching clip after clip.

TikTok is a video sharing app that follows in the footsteps of Musical.ly and Vine that allows users to make short clips with different special effects and filters.

The app reportedly boasts a user base of over 500 million monthly active users worldwide and became the most downloaded app on iOS in the first quarter of 2018 with an estimated 45.8 million downloads.

Despite so many users posting videos on a daily basis, the most subscribed man on YouTube starts off being incredibly confused about the motivation behind the videos posted on the platform.

PewDiePie seems to be enjoying TikTok these days.

“Why?! Why?! I still have no answer to my question, ”PewDiePie yells early on in his video. “Why do all these kids record [these videos] to begin with?!”

Battling through his confusion, PewDiePie ends up finding some positives in the existence of the service.

“In a way, we should be thankful to TikTok because TikTok saved us from Musical.ly [integrating] with YouTube,” says PewDiePie on the service’s 2017 merger with Musical.ly.

By the end of the video, PewDiePie eventually comes around to enjoy the service despite his initial hesitations.

“TikTok. I love it! You know what, I never thought I would actually say that,” PewDiePie says towards the end of the video.

While PewDiePie might have some strong feelings about other areas of the internet, it looks like TikTok has escaped his judgment for the time being.

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.
