There’s a lot of financial incentives to making it big on Twitch – cars, houses and the best gaming gear money can buy. But, for top streamer Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek, he’s used some of his hard-earned streaming money on water jet, self-cleaning toilets.
Shroud revealed that he had spent roughly $20,000 on two of ridiculously pricey toilets, which use a water jet to clean the user’s behind after use, back in January.
He called the decision a ‘mid-life’ crisis, after showing off what the toilets could do.
However, despite their price tag, shroud wasn’t all that impressed by their performance, giving his viewers the final verdict on February 22.
“So I sprayed water in my butt hole today for the first time,” he stated rather nonchalantly, “I was a little disappointed, because I was expecting more strength, it’s more like a gentle stream.”
Like a true gamer, shroud says he even tried to “overclock” his fancy toilets, as though they were a CPU, but to no avail: “Not enough strength, I want it to be a straight jet stream into my asshole.”
Thankfully, shroud’s Twitch subscribers have boomed in February, recently hitting over 70,000, which is (at minimum) around $300,000 a month in subscribers alone (not counting ad revenue, donations, and other income streams from YouTube and sponsors), so the $20,000 spent on these toilets hopefully won’t hurt too much.
Maybe the toilet company will see shroud’s feedback and act on it – and maybe even drop the streamer a sponsorship too, which would be one of the most bizarre non-endemic gaming sponsorships yet.
