Connor Bennett

A clip of a Twitch streamer who fell asleep on stream and woke up to discover hundreds of people watching him has skyrocketed into the top ten most viewed clips of all time.

The bizarre clip, which was shared on January 27, shows streamer JesseDStreams, who is used to only seeing a handful of people in his channel, waking up to find that hundreds of people have been watching him during his slumber.

His priceless reaction, as he realized what was going on, has shot the clip up the most watched charts and, as of writing, has already garnered close to 1.7 million views – enough to help guide the clip into seventh-place on the top-ten list.

According to Twitch Strike, a tracking website that covers the hugely popular streaming platform, a clip of Guy ‘Dr DisRespect’ Beahm still holds the crown for the top viewed stream highlight.

The clip, which shows The Doc abruptly stopping his stream after a passerby had fired shots at an upstairs window of his house, causing it to break was posted on  September 11 2018, and immediately went viral due to its shocking nature and just how passionately Dr DisRespect reacted to the situation.

The current list of clips is home to a number of different types of clips – including Dr DisRespect, JesseDStreams sleeping and Mark Zuckerberg answering questions before Congress.

With the wide variety of things being broadcast on Twitch at any one moment, a clip like the ‘sleeping streamer’ is always on the horizon and ready to break into the top 10 list.
