Popular YouTuber Shane Dawson may have given clues about his next major project, thanks to a mysterious new hashtag he used in a Tweet on November 25.

In the Tweet, Dawson asked his audience to recommend any “theories” they wanted him to discuss, instructing them to use the hashtag ‘#SDconspiracytheories.’

“Doing research 👁🔺,” Dawson wrote, using emojis to indicate the Illuminati symbol. “If there’s a theory you want me to discuss, Tweet it to me with #SDconspiracytheories.”

This isn’t the first time Dawson has considered conspiracy theories, either; this latest Tweet follows a previous post he made on November 13, where he toyed with the idea of creating a documentary series about extraterrestrials.

“I think I just found my next series,” Dawson wrote, linking a video of TIME’s investigation into UFO sightings by three Irish commercial pilots. “Aliens… please make contact and then come talk to me on my couch? 👽🙏🏻☕️”

Since posting the Tweet, Dawson has considered the scandal around SMOSH parent company Defy Media, the California fires, and even a documentary over YouTube’s widely-debated viewership algorithm – which Dawson humorously remarked could turn into a “thousand-part series.”

Dawson’s latest documentary series over controversial YouTuber Jake Paul received critical acclaim across the platform, breaking records and even receiving more views than major Netflix shows.

Dawson had likewise considered creating yet another installment to the Jake Paul series after his breakup with YouTuber Erika Costell.

However, it looks like Paul has already taken up that mantle, delving into their split of his own accord in his new series, ‘Jake Paul Uncut.’

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
