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.

Instagram: @pokelawlsPokelawls is one of Twitch’s most popular streamers – attracting thousands of viewers on a daily basis.

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.

Jake Paul roasts Conor McGregor with new fight deal after UFC 257 Poirier loss

Jake Paul has jokingly rescinded his $50 million fight offer to Conor McGregor after his shock loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 257, offering him a measly $10,000 instead.

Jake Paul has been nipping at Conor McGregor’s heels in the weeks leading up to UFC 257, trying to bait the former double-champ into accepting a $50 million fight offer for an exhibition boxing bout.

However, despite his best efforts, it didn’t work. Conor McGregor was too focused on his own endeavors and never acknowledged it, although he tip-toed around the question a few times.

Eventually, he flat-out said he’s not interested in the fight, and it seemed like the idea was dead and buried once and for all. But after Conor McGregor’s shock UFC 257 loss to Dustin Poirier, Jake Paul is at it again. And this time, his original offer is off the table.

Jake Paul’s second fight offer adds more insult to injury after Conor McGregor’s UFC 257 loss.

Jake Paul tuned in to watch the main event like millions of other UFC fans. But he had more invested in the fight than the average viewer, and once it was over, it was only a matter of time before he posted a video.

“Hey Conor,” she said, laughing hysterically in a video that he shared on Twitter moments after the loss. “I’ve got ten thousand dollars for you, cash!” He struggled to contain his laughter and kept repeating words. “Oh, you had fifty million dollars,” he added, right at the end. 

The same message was echoed in a YouTube video Jake uploaded to his YouTube channel shortly after titled ‘My Message to Conor McGregor.’ He said, “you should have taken the Jake Paul fight for $50 million, but now I got $10,000 for you. I got $10,000 cash, cold hard cash. Or I’ll give you a third of a bitcoin. You choose, Conor McGregor.”

At the end of the video he says “April 17th guys, I’m fighting… You know, it was supposed to be Conor McGregor but we’ll see what happens, stay tuned.”

It’s obvious that Jake is still up to his usual antics. He’s trying to kick Conor while he’s down. But this time, it might actually work.

Conor’s loss will undoubtedly be a spanner in the works for his UFC plans. However, it means he might be open to lucrative exhibition fight offers once again.

Of course, there’s no way he’d accept the second $10,000 fight offer. But he might consider the initial $50 million one, which is probably what Jake Paul intended. We’ll have to wait and see what happens next.
