A Twitch streamer has recreated Eminem’s iconic Stan song and video, dedicating it to popular Imane ‘Pokimane‘ Anys in hilarious fashion.

Stan is arguably one of the biggest hits of the 21st century, with the Detroit rapper occupying the voice of a superfan who goes off the rails, with both the song and video being incredibly creepy as well as holding on to that Eminem lyrical prowess that he became known for.

Now, though, a small Twitch streamer has decided to recreate it, telling Pokimane of his love for her and how much of a fan he is with some witty lyrics that keep it light and funny, a far cry from the original.

Pokimane is the most popular female streamer on Twitch, with almost 4 million followers.

Shown sitting on his bed and typing on an iPad, SamStrake starts the song with “Dear Poki” before detailing why he’s her biggest fan and the things he does to show support.

He starts off saying that he’s “watched over 100,000 hours of her stream” and that she is “the woman of his dreams” before speaking on how beautiful she is, even going so far as to call her his “Moroccan Cinderella.”

For the hook, Sam questions why he even logs into Twitch when Poki isn’t online, with lines such as “you go live in six more hours, but god that seems so long,” adding that even if they can’t meet in person, he would “be okay with a picture of her feet.”

The song takes a turn, however, very similar to how the original song, when Sam doesn’t get responses from Pokimane. He says he’s sending his “last DM” and that he’s tired of getting timed out every time he compliments her “olive skin,” calling her a “stuck-up b**ch” and imploring her to go find a “lesser man.”

Of course, this is all meant entirely in jest, and Sam likely doesn’t think Pokimane is stuck-up or sits and waits for her livestreams every day. The joke was elevated right at the end when the Sam character got banned from her stream, and he needed someone new to fawn over.

Taking a moment to think about his next move, Sam reopens his iPad and starts typing again, this time starting “Dear Amouranth, you don’t know me. I’m your biggest fan,” referencing another popular female streamer to round out the genius parody.

Though Pokimane hasn’t yet responded to the post, Sam picked up plenty of feedback, accruing hundreds of retweets and thousands of likes. Naturally, most found it hilarious, and even Amouranth responded to it calling it “amazing,” so he clearly did a good job.

Whether Poki even sees it is not yet known, but if she’s as impressed as everyone else who has seen it, SamStrake might be on to a winner.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
