The internet came to the rescue of a pet cat trapped in a streamer’s fridge during a March 11 EXBC Twitch broadcast.

EXBC is a Twitch channel run by married couple Heosu and Esco, who normally partake in IRL streams involving cooking and traveling.

As the two were in their kitchen talking and having a good time, Heosu started looking in the fridge for something to eat, seemingly unaware that her cat, ‘QnQn,’ was inside.

Neither streamer noticed the cat inside the fridge.

The streamer seemed completely oblivious to the situation as she shut the door and rejoined her husband, leaving the feline trapped.

Luckily, if there’s something the internet loves more than anything else, it’s cats.

“QnQn in fridge monkaS,” viewer ‘PimpNamedButters’ wrote.

“QnQn stealth into fridge,” another user, ‘pepsisippi,’ commented.

While this was going on, Esco started chatting with his wife about whether or not she hates his jokes.

As two continued their conversation like everything was fine, Twitch chat grew impatient and started typing in all caps. “SAVE QNQN,” “CAT IN REFRIGERATOR,” “QNQN TRAPPED” Twitch spammed.

Twitch chat was quick to alert the streamers.

Finally, Heosu noticed the chat and sprung into action.

“Oh sh*t!” she cried and leaped up to open the fridge door.

“Ahh!” Esco screamed as he opened grabbed hold of the handle to let QnQn out to freedom. “Gosh.”

QnQn was finally freed.

Luckily, the cat seemed to be unharmed as he got out of the fridge unscathed, free from the dark and icy cold.

“Thanks, chat!” a relieved Heosu stated as she went to sit back down.

While Twitch chat can sometimes be a bit annoying with its copy pastas, memes and thousands of emotes, it can also end up being a major help.

It’s unclear how long QnQn would have been left alone in the fridge if chat didn’t freak out, but it’s certainly a very good thing that they did.

Tommyinnit reveals he used to stream snipe Shroud before he was famous

Tommyinnit might be the most popular streamer on Twitch right now, averaging over 200,000 concurrent viewers for his sporadic Minecraft streams, but it turns out he used to be a massive shroud fanboy. In fact, he was one of shroud’s infamous stream snipers.

Stream sniping is the practice of using a streamer’s broadcast to gain information about the game they are playing – either to get an unfair advantage, or simply to join their game and troll them.

During the height of PUBG’s popularity in 2017, shroud was the biggest streamer on Twitch, and had an army of loyal stream snipers who would try endlessly to get into his matches.

Shroud’s stream snipers weren’t like others though – instead of trying to kill him, they would sing him songs, give him weapons and armor, or try to save his life when under attack.

Tommyinnit admits shroud stream sniping

Although it’s against the rules of most games and of Twitch itself, Tommyinnit has admitted that when he was 14, back in 2017, he loved both PUBG and shroud, and would spend hours up late trying to get into his games.

And he was successful too – often matching up with him, and trying to save his life from actual enemies attacking him. Shroud eventually became familiar with Tommy’s name, and would say hello to him. In a video on his second channel, Tommyoutit, came clean about all of his stream sniping antics.

In one session, shroud even talked to Tommy about playing Minecraft, the game that he’s so well-known for now.

But, it turns out that Tommyinnit made this video because it wasn’t just years ago in PUBG that he was stream sniping shroud. When he recently saw shroud on a Minecraft server with proximity chat, he had to try it again for old times sake.

Unfortunately, shroud didn’t seem to be enjoying himself at all this time around, and soon after left the server – though not before killing Tommyinnit’s character, twice.

Although stream sniping is technically against the rules on Twitch, we’re sure the platform will let this one slide, as it was all in good fun. The real question is whether shroud has made the connection that one of his old stream snipers is now one of the biggest names on Twitch alongside him.
