Imane “Pokimane” Anys is one of Twitch’s top streamers, boasting over 3.5 million followers on the site. However, some of her fans take their enthusiasm a bit too far.

As a major internet star, Pokimane often receives gifts from her fanbase – not an unusual occurrence, since many content creators have open PO boxes for their fans to submit mail and other goodies.

However, one of her fans mailed out an unusual offering, which Pokimane opened during an unboxing video with the “OfflineTV” squad.

Pokimane, InstagramPokimane is a popular face on Twitch – meaning that she gets some odd gifts from fans, from time to time.

Rather than leaving the gift for OfflineTV’s audience, Pokimane decided to show off the item during her own stream – a gift that left her chat sin stitches.

“OTV did an unboxing the other day, and someone sent in this gem,” she began, stepping back to unfurl a full-length body pillow with her picture on either side.

However, the streamer didn’t seem to find the gift creepy, considering the usual sexual nature of “dakimakuras.” Instead, she seemed to find the situation hilarious, calling the stunt “insane.”

“It’s a body pillow of me,” she laughed. “Thoughts? This was a pretty good picture to choose, I won’t lie. This one, my head’s just a little bit big… Insane. Insanity.”

Pokimane didn’t seem too bothered by a body pillow sent in by a fan.

She went on to show off the pillow for her viewers before suddenly covering up the bottom portion of one side, apparently for fear that a certain part of the photo could be potentially revealing.

“Cover up, Jesus!” she jokingly exclaimed, placing her hand over the pillow. “You’re not even married.”

This wouldn’t be the first time Pokimane has received awkward gifts in the mail, by far: in fact, Anys received such offerings as a “Fart Filter” odor plug and a stun gun during her birthday stream in early May, leaving her understandably speechless.

Pokimane even tested the gun on stream, giving a high-pitched scream when the taser zapped in her hand.

No matter the occasion, Pokimane’s fans always come in clutch with their odd gift choices. She doesn’t seem to mind them though, no matter how weird they are, as evidenced by her hilarious reaction to her brand-new body pillow.

New Twitch streamer NickCKelly got emotional on stream when he got his first viewers after waiting for nearly an hour, gaining thousands as followers as a result of his wholesome reaction.

2020 was a booming year for Twitch, with top creators like xQc and Valkyrae achieving huge numbers in terms of followers and views, and several gaming trends surging in popularity at various points in the year, meaning success all around.

With these huge creators out here smashing records, it’s easy to forget that many are only just starting out their venture into streaming, both casually and seriously.

This year has no doubt prompted more people than ever before to give streaming a try, but it’s not as easy as it might seem from the outside – especially if you’re starting from zero.

2020 helped Twitch do massive numbers all round.

NickCKelly was one such individual who wanted to give streaming a go, and he couldn’t have been more grateful when he eventually got his first viewers after a while on stream by himself.

He had been streaming for almost an hour when he noticed that some viewers had joined his previously empty chat, and he looked stunned.

“I have my first viewer, hi!” Nick said, looking taken aback by the sudden appearance. “Wow, this is amazing. I’m genuinely honored to have you in my stream, you’re my first viewer that I’ve had, I’ve been streaming for 48 minutes.”

“I feel like I’m gonna cry, man,” he said with the most wholesome reaction possible, tearing up as he spoke to his new viewers.

Over on Reddit, user Avoxio who found Nick’s stream explained why they entered his empty stream. “Me and some friends were scrolling through twitch and found this guy. His stream title got us intrigued so we decided to stop by.”

They also said “at first we thought he was trolling so we messed around a bit not thinking anything of it, throughout our conversation we realized that he was being genuine,” and said they decided to share his stream in hopes of getting him recognition.

Nick also responded in the comments: “I will not let you all down. I want to prove to people that there is goodness in the world, and that we are capable of so much more than most think. I think there’s so much pain and suffering in the world right now. Helping even a single person is making a difference in the world.”

The unexpected reaction from the small streamer certainly seemed to strike a chord with some viewers, and Nick has now shot up to 4.7 thousand followers at the time of writing.
