Popular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys was left red in the face after realizing she didn’t actually understand how window blinds work, relying on her audience to bail her out.
Pokimane is the biggest streamers on Twitch, comfortably ahead of second-placed female streamer Amouranth. She boasts over 3.6 million followers, and has become known for her down-to-earth and relaxed streams.
However, on December 20, the 23-year-old was left scratching her head as she tried to work out how to close her blinds in order to stop the sun from ruining her setup, as well as inhibiting her from seeing her screens.
Anys was only a few minutes into her stream and was trying to ensure her setup was as viewer-friendly as it could be. However, the Californian sun proved problematic, glaring obnoxiously into her eyes.
Poki proceeded to mess around with her blinds, but couldn’t work out how to tighten them sufficiently. In the end, she just sat in the glaring sunlight, explaining that: “This is as tight as I can get the blinds.”
While Poki struggled in the powerful sunlight, her Twitch chat simply suggested to turn the blind the other way, a recommendation she took a couple of minutes later.
“Turn them the other way?” she said, looking confused. She then sat back down laughing, seemingly in disbelief at the fact she couldn’t work out how to work the blinds out.
However, she is not the only streamer to have difficulties with blinds of late. Also on December 20, Matthew ‘Mizkif’ Rinaudo was left baffled after his chat instructed him on how to successfully close the blinds.
Both streamers were left embarrassed after struggling with a relatively simple task, much to the delight of their respective audiences.
The two streamers are known for interacting with one another, most recently when Mizkif poked fun at Pokimane’s drama with 39daph, back at the end of October.
Given that they both struggled with the same task, we won’t see Mizkif poking fun at Poki for this particular hiccup.
