Twitch Prime gives viewers a free subscription to one streamer every month; viewers with an Amazon Prime account have a free subscription.

Twitch Prime plugs have become a staple in the Fortnite and Twitch streaming communities as the subscriptions support streamers and allow them to continue to entertain fans.

Fortnite, as well as many other games, release exclusive Twitch Prime content to gamers who link their Twitch accounts to their gaming accounts.

Ninja has set the gold standard for plugging Twitch Prime to his audience by periodically reminding his viewers to check and see if they have their free Twitch Prime sub available and to click the drop down to find out.

Often times the plugs are done flawlessly by reading them off a card, but recently streamers have taken to free styling the pitch and the results have been varied.

NICKMERCS stumbled his way through Twitch Prime ad during a Thursday night stream and the pitch was far from what you might expect.

The plug included the streamer insisting that the “chat listen” as he explained that the “you have a thing” later described as a “dropdown” that says “bloop.”

Like all great ads Nick closed out the plug strong saying “you click it and then you sub. Bada bing bada boom you’re good to go baby.”

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
