Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris, with the help of ‘Fyz,’ went undercover as himself in an elaborate troll against an upcoming Just Chatting streamer on Twitch, who couldn’t believe the real Soda was in her chat.

Sodapoppin has his fair share of fans across Twitch. The World of Warcraft streamer has been at the top of the charts for years, with thousands of loyal followers tuning in every day.

Many of those followers are just like him ⁠— streamers on the platform ⁠— so when he drops by random channels, it would be a pretty big moment for them.

However, one streamer wasn’t convinced that it was the real Sodapoppin, and so the streamer and a friend played an elaborate prank to make it seem that way.

On February 15, Sodapoppin entered the Twitch chat of Youneh and followed her, startling the streamer. However, the streamer didn’t let anyone know of the story until February 25 in a bit of a tell-all about the antics he and Fyz pulled that day.

“So there was this girl that was streaming and I followed her channel ⁠— we were just going through Just Chatting and I followed her,” he said.

“I didn’t know it would pop up and show up on her screen ‘Sodapoppin followed’ and she was like ‘oh my god, Sodapoppin followed,’ and I was like f**k, great, so that’s annoying I hate that.”

Sodapoppin’s friend, Fyz, came up with an excuse for the random sub. He had hacked Twitch, and now he was spamming Sodapoppin follower alerts all across the platform, and he just so happened to be testing the program on her stream.

“Fyz came in and said something along the lines of ‘hey, no, I hacked Twitch, and I made this program that makes it look like big streamers did certain things.’ She bought it, and because I was in Discord with Fyz he was like, ‘yo, subscribe to her,’ so I subbed to her.”

“Right before I subbed Fyz typed: ‘watch, I’ll make him subscribe to you.’ She’s like ‘oh my god Fyz, how did you write this program, that’s so crazy,’ and she’s going on, she loves it, she believes it.

From there though, the hoax only got deeper and deeper. What seemed like an innocent follow turned into something much deeper.

“Because Fyz subscribed to her, he got her Snapchat,” he said, holding back the laughter. “She’s still debating whether or not it's actually me, she’s having doubts. She gives Fyz the Snapchat, but Fyz then gives it to me, so I have her Snapchat, but she thinks it’s Fyz pretending.

“I literally snapchat her my face. I send her a picture of my face. She’s like ‘oh my god, that’s not real, how did you photoshop that?’ I snapchatted her again, but this time, I have her Twitch name, and I write it in paint in the background so you can see it on the monitor in the back, but she still doesn’t believe it.”

From hacking Twitch to hacking Snapchat, Youneh seemed in awe of Fyz’s 'skill,' and wanted him to keep pushing the limits.

“Fyz is now claiming ‘yeah, I wrote this program that lets me hack big streamer’s faces and snapchat them.’ She believes it, but then she asks for it on a piece of paper, and Fyz is like ‘yeah, one second,’ so I get a piece of paper and I say ‘f**k you’ on it as well.

The duo went on to send videos and even get Sodapoppin to get in a Discord call with her, all while she believed it was just from Fyz’s “program.”

The prank had Sodapoppin and his community in stitches, and Youneh could also see the funny side of it as well once all was said and done. So, if you see Sodapoppin in your small stream, someone hasn’t hacked Twitch ⁠— it’s the real Soda, and you should definitely get a little excited at his expense.
