One of the great things about YouTube and the digital age is that you can relive moments with a sweet tint of nostalgia. But this isn’t always a good idea, as Twitch streamer Sodapoppin found out when he watched an embarrassing old video live on stream.

Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris has been creating content for the better part of a decade; his first YouTube upload came seven years ago, with videos on World of Warcraft and some real-life stuff thrown into the mix.

In a livestream on November 3, Sodapoppin allowed viewers to request YouTube videos with donations, which could go wrong for a number of reasons – but Sodapoppin probably didn’t expect to be embarrassed by his own content.

Sodapoppin/YouTubeSodapoppin has amassed over 1m YouTube subscribers and 2.6m Twitch followers.

In a video that is evidently from several years ago, Sodapoppin is answering the question of hair color he prefers in a woman – redhead, blonde, brunette, or black. He then went into a bit too much detail when discussing his preference.

“Let’s assume that these girls are all beyond perfect, they just have different hair color,” the video starts. “If I had to pick one to date, probably brunette,” before saying that he wasn’t interested in blondes because they were “too stupid.”

As the video played out, current-day Sodapoppin was literally holding his head in his hands, unable to even look at this video of himself from only a few years ago.

If Sodapoppin thought that was the end of the embarrassment he was very wrong, as old-Soda continued: “Redheads, if they’re not ginger and they’re redheads… Yeah… and they have great feet.”

He then turned to his friend off-camera and advised him to “get some feet pics” before sharing that his phone background was of a pair of feet.

Of course, embarrassing old videos weren’t the only thing Sodapoppin had to deal with during the stream, with yet another awkward moment occurring thanks to the YouTube requests.

One viewer donated a huge $50 to play a video – an English-dubbed anime clip – but the video was not available on copyright grounds, meaning nobody even got to watch it.

After the clip finished, Sodapoppin just laughed and said “Whatever,” before telling his chat that “I don’t care what y’all think.”

He was clearly embarrassed by the old video, as he swiftly moved on without really addressing it and tried to pretend it hadn’t happened.

But the Internet never forgets, and he might struggle to live this one down.


PewDiePie hits out at company over KSI Meme Review copyright claim

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.
