Popular Twitch streamer found an interesting duo ‘partner’ for his Fortnite matches as he teamed up with himself thanks to a fan with a soundboard.
The Canadian variety streamer has been broadcasting on Twitch since 2013, amassing over 500,000 followers in that time – playing everything from Overwatch to League of Legends, and even throwing in some IRL (in real life) streaming too.
He can usually be found collaborating with other broadcasters, including fellow Canadian Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel, yet, while playing Fortnite, he’s been getting viewers involved. Some have been more creatives than others – including one fan who has been able to mimic the streamer and his friends with some incredible soundboard skills.
During his November 26 stream, Poke had finished up a random duos game when he backed out into the lobby and was greeted by a viewer he’d already played with. “Oh my god, it’s him again,” he called out as the two began conversing.
However, instead of using another streamer’s voices, the viewer responded with a few lines from Poke himself. “You really prepared, you came back with a lot of effort now,” asked the streamer, before being repeatedly greeted with the same ‘yes’ line.
“You only have one yes?” he said, before the viewer replied with the same line. However, Poke saw the funny side of things and burst out into laughter, which was immediately repeated back to him.
Even though viewers spammed the chat with their laughter, and Poke couldn’t contain himself, it didn’t take long for their cover to be blown in an actual match with other players.
“Oh, it’s a f**king… he’s got a keyboard that plays sounds of a streamer,” noted one of their random squad partners after Poke and his fan spammed lines over each other.
While it didn’t work out perfectly on that occasion, it’s definitely something that the streamer and fans will likely want to revisit over time.
With an abundance of streamers out there who could be fashioned into a soundboard, the potential for hilarity is uncapped.
