Popular Twitch streamer ‘QuarterJade’ was at a loss for words after receiving an incredibly touching Christmas gift from a fellow broadcaster. 

QuarterJade is a variety and IRL [in-real-Life] Twitch streamer that’s well known for her entertaining content.

Like many others, she was celebrating the holidays on Twitch with her viewers and during one stream received a wholesome gift from fellow streamer Masayoshi. She was so touched by the Christmas present she barely knew how to react.

Twitter: @QuarterjadeQuarterJade is a popular Twitch streamer, largely known for her IRL content.

The two were sitting and chatting to viewers when he handed her the gift to unwrap. QuarterJade had no idea what it could be, but it’s unlikely she could have expected something like this.

When she finally unwrapped it she found a poster of her most used Twitch emote, a cartoon version of her hugging a heart and gasped in amazement. Jade was already stunned by how incredible it looked and simply uttered a “what???” while inspecting it further.

Meanwhile, Masayoshi explained the gift, showing just how heart-warmingly thoughtful it was. “I looked up you’re most used emote on your channel and I grabbed all of your subs from December and descending – this is [made up of] like 8000 subs.”

QuarterJade was at a loss for words, she just stared at him with a massive smile on her face, while also admiring the poster. “You’re really good at faking reactions” he said, noticing tears starting to well in her eyes, to which Jade replied “I’m not faking”, with a shaky voice, as if she was about to cry tears of joy.

The two then sat there in silence for a brief moment with QuarterJade still taking what may have been one of the best and most thoughtful gifts of 2019.

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.
