Twitch star Imane “Pokimane” Anys revealed her very own Fortnite emote in January as part of the game’s “Icon” series — and it doesn’t look like the dance emote is staying inside the game.

The streamer’s unique emote kicked off an accompanying TikTok contest, which gives players the chance to have their very own dances become part of the game too.

Considering Pokimane’s popularity among Fortnite players, it comes as little surprise that her emote went viral, prompting a few hilarious interactions with the broadcaster in-game.

In fact, Anys uploaded a YouTube video on January 23 that revealed the exact scope of the dance’s popularity, being amazed at how often she encountered it while playing.

One fan even built a heart after noticing Pokimane was in their game and performed the emote on a small platform, much to her surprise.

However, it was a fellow streamer who ended up sending her into stitches, after the two linked up in a Duo fill.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has her very own Fortnite emote, which has spawned a number of hilarious recreations.

Fortnite player and broadcaster “Jack_HippoTV” claimed that he was trying to recreate the dance with little success, and asked Pokimane for help in pulling off the moves during their game.

This prompted Poki to wonder if he was performing the emote on his channel, which she quickly looked up for proof.

Rather than standing up from his chair, Jack Hippo instead decided to stay seated, merely throwing up a few rhythmic peace signs while giving a knowing look to the camera.

“Better than nothing!” Anys laughed.

“Was that good?” Hippo asked.

“Yeah, that was pretty good!”

Jack_Hippo isn’t the only streamer recreating Poki’s viral dance emote, either: popular streamer Greekgodx likewise tried to pull off the choreography, which drew hysterical laughter from its creator for his efforts.

Even Twitch commentator Hasan Piker tried his hand at the TikTok dance, begging the question: how many streamers will end up recreating Pokimane’s “positively enthusiastic” Fortnite moves?

Any’s emote follows the release of Tyler “Ninja” Blevins’ very own skin for the battle royale, also part of the “Icon” series — which could see collaboration with more content creators in the future.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
