Streaming star Imane “Pokimane” Anys got more than she bargained for after challenging fellow broadcasters to a timed Postmates eating challenge in exchange for gifted subscriptions.

While Pokimane is known for her hilarious interactions with fans and fellow streamers, she took these moments to the next level with a Mr Beast-esque challenge that involved not oodles of money, but food.

In the style of YouTube’s biggest philanthropist, Pokimane ordered food to both friends and random streamers, giving them a time limit in which to consume the grub exchange for 100 gifted subs.

Pokimane, TwitterPokimane is a massive name in the streaming industry, boasting over 3.7 million followers on the platform.

However, in the midst of her challenge, she ran into a couple who were streaming together, and offered to buy them a “romantic dinner for two” as part of the challenge.

She then hopped around to other broadcasts, such as those of Mizkif and Fuslie, to check in on their challenges before going back to the couple — who had written Pokimane’s name on their foreheads as a means to “summon” her back to their channel.

Needless to say, Pokimane was fairly flummoxed by this turn of events, asking, “Why do you guys have my name on your 4head?”

“We’re just vibing,” they replied — but that wasn’t the end of their antics, by far.

Pokimane quickly found out that they had even tried to summon her with a fake “seance” before her return, where the chanted over a candle with the lights off in a humorous interpretation of an occult ceremony.

To further add to the comedy, Pokimane gave them a follow during the “ritual,” prompting an excited “It worked!” from the couple.

Rather than challenging the duo to her Postmates challenge, she merely stuck around until their food was successfully delivered, going on to speak with another small streamer who literally cried tears of joy thanks to Pokimane’s generous donation of grub.

Mizkif and Fuslie, however, struggled through their individual challenges, with the male streamer successfully eating an entire order of spicy wings while Fuslie couldn’t get through her medium-sized pizza in time.

Thanks to Pokimane, two small streamers got a big shout out — and a ton of free food.

Former Vine star Patrick Perkins has cleared up a myth about an iconic meme years after it first took the internet by storm.

While Vine shuffled its mortal coil in 2016, many of its biggest stars have carried on with short-form comedy on YouTube and now TikTok, including Lele Pons, Liza Koshy, and David Dobrik.

Even now, these short clip compilations still get millions of views on YouTube, and there are still multiple Instagram and Twitter accounts dedicated to them. Several vines have carried on their internet life as memes or gifs and have even been pasted onto merchandise.

The vine in question shows a blonde teenager in glasses blowing a smoke circle using a vape on a desk when the person carrying the camera blows it away. The teen turns to the camera and exasperatedly says “Adam!.”

Adam and Patrick starred in several iconic vines.

Now the star himself has come onto TikTok to confirm some lore surrounding him and his twin brother, which has baffled thousands who never knew the truth.

Another iconic and highly quotable vine involving one of the twins shows them walking into his bathroom in just a pair of boxers saying: “Hi, welcome to chillis.” In another, one of the twins begs viewers to stop comparing him to Chicken Little.

To most people, they look like the exact same person.

However, Patrick has explained in a viral TikTok that they’re actually identical twins. Patrick was the star of the vape video, while the other twin is Adam and the star of the Chilli’s vine. He also showed a picture of them together “since a lot of people don’t believe that there are actually two of us.”

Patrick also posted the video to Twitter and users were bowled over by the new information. One person wrote, “I feel like a different person for knowing this,” while another added, “world-shattering revelations are sometimes just small clarifications I guess.”

In less than 24 hours, Patrick’s tweet has amassed 4,000 likes and continues to grow, bringing back a sense of nostalgia for many and clearing up a long-standing internet myth.
