Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys was floored when she found someone who looks so identical to her, she could be mistaken for her “twin.”

Pokimane is one of the most popular entertainers in the world, boasting millions of followers across YouTube, Instagram, and of course her Twitch channel, where she is one of the most watched streamers on the platform.

However after the Moroccan-Canadian asked her fans to submit photos of people that look like her, she was stunned when one of the submissions looked like a perfect clone. The personality thought she could pass for a sibling.

Pokimane finds her twin lookalike

The search for Poki’s doppelganger kicked off on April 9 when the Twitch streamer made a post on social media asking her fans to send people that looked similar to her for an upcoming video.

“Send me my look alikes/people you think look like me, and you may be featured in an upcoming video” she tweeted. The post received over 2.5k replies, as viewers shared pictures of those identical to the personality.

On April 20 the star uploaded a video to her YouTube channel where she went through the results. However, one person in particular caught her eye and made her lose it.

The Twitch streamer reacted to lookalikes in her latest YouTube video.

“This is it. This is the ONE person that I’ve ever looked at and been like ‘you’re my long lost twin!'” she said. She then told her viewers “Look at this!” and played them a clip of her doppelganger.

“That’s me! Like, I’m gonna do the exact same zoom in a video,” she exclaimed, before re-creating the clip on her phone and putting the two videos side by side to highlight how much they look the same. “Oh my God! It’s insaaaaaane!”

The streamer then pointed out how their features matched. “The hair color is the same, the smile is super similar. The nose to eyebrow, to eye, it’s all so similar! I think she looks like a babier version of me. Awww, she has the dimple like me too! I love that so much!”

Not only did the viewer get compared to Pokimane, the streamer herself gave them a major compliment, stating, “This is the first person i’d actually say looks like me… But cuter!”

While the streamer is massive on Twitch with millions of followers, her YouTube account is even more impressive. At the time of writing, it has an astonishing 4.8 million subscribers.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was stunned after a company copyright claimed his Meme Review with JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji. The Swede lost all the revenue for the upload due to their awful performance of “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic. 

On November 22, PewDiePie teamed up with fellow YouTube star KSI for an epic Meme Review. The duo tackled everything from British culture to Olatunji’s boxing match with Logan Paul.

Kjellberg later revealed on Instagram that the popular video had been copyright claimed by a company. The personality called the move “bulls**t” after the corporation took all the revenue over their Titanic joke.

The YouTubers’ awful performance of My Heart Will Go On got the video claimed for copyright.

PewDiePie & KSI’s Meme Review copyright claimed

PewDiePie’s Meme Review with KSI was a major hit on the platform, pulling in over 7.3 million views in just a few days. Fans of both YouTube creators were treated to a hilarious collaboration. However, the duo’s “attempt” to perform My Heart Will Go On on a flute and alpine horn caused the video to get claimed.

Kjellberg revealed the issue on his Instagram story on November 25. “So I got a claim on my KSI video. At the end, we played My Heart Will Go On,” he said, before playing a clip of their awful performance to demonstrate how absurd the claim was. “It’s too similar!” he joked.

It turns out the YouTuber had appealed the claim, but was denied. “So I appealed it, because its bulls**t why, and they rejected it! This is actually infringing on copyright according to this company!” he exclaimed, before breaking into laughter.

The 31-year-old explained that the company was now going to get 100% of the money made off the popular upload. “So all the revenue now goes to this company for the entire video. Like, what? Yeah, I just thought it was bulls**t, I don’t even know.”

The whole scenario is made all the more ridiculous when you consider that the Titanic joke was only a few seconds in a 26 minute upload. The fact that the company now gets to own the entire video is a good example how YouTube’s content ID system can sometimes be flawed.
