Superstar Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane‘ Anys received some bizarre gifts from fans for her birthday, and she was quite taken aback when opening them on stream.
In celebration of her 23rd birthday, Pokimane held a special stream on May 14, in which she appeared with her cosplay of Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones.
Being the popular content creator that she is, many of her fans sent her gifts for her birthday, some of which she ended up opening on stream for her thousands of viewers to see.
It came a surprise to pretty much no one when a few of the gifts ended up being quite weird, and Poki didn’t really know what to say when she first opened them.
The first really awkward gift was a ‘Fart Filter,’ a personal flatulence plug that essentially mitigates the odor for those who may have difficulty with out of control farting.
The second gift was a stun gun, which may not have been as weird as the first, until Poki ended up listening to her viewers and testing the object.
A click of the button released a large and loud electric shock that was powerful enough to be visible on the device itself, and she ended up shrieking and sitting there stunned for a few seconds, as ironic as that may seem.
Pokimane reaches major milestone on Twitch
While Pokimane likely received dozens of wonderful gifts for her birthday, perhaps the best gift out of all is the fact that she hit a whopping three million followers on Twitch just a few days earlier.
According to TwitchMetrics, Poki is just the 13th streamer to eclipse the three million mark, joining the likes of Ninja, Shroud, Tfue and other huge names in the Twitch community.
“I wanna say one last time, seriously, thank you guys for supporting me in any way,” she said. “I didn’t realize until I got to this point that having the freedom to pursue what I want to pursue and have such a fulfilling job where I feel like I can have a positive influence on everyone’s day, I am so lucky.”
There’s one thing that’s for sure – having over three million followers on Twitch is sure as heck a better birthday present than a Fart Filter and stun gun.
