Donation alerts on Twitch are common with any streamer, but 88bitmusic blows everyone else out of the water with his extremely elaborate one.

Many streamers on Twitch, Mixer, or whatever platform they stream on have some sort of noise that plays to signify a donation.

For most, it’ll just be a short alert, but 88bitmusic mixed it up a bit and had a prolonged one that played an entire song and pretty much took over the stream for several minutes.

One you have to see to believe.

A donation was triggered that began with a gorilla punching a hole through the side of his stream, which is when he let the chat know he was just going to sit back and let this one play out.

Soon after that, a cover of ‘Africa’ by Toto began playing and a series of graphics overlayed over his screen. It was probably like nothing anybody in the chat had ever seen before. 

It’s easily one of the lengthiest and most elaborate donation alerts we’ve seen on Twitch, and it’s also one of the most impressive.

Alerts like this are always fun to watch as a viewer, but can quickly grow to be annoying if it’s abused, which is why many streamers will make their lengthy alerts locked behind a high paywall.

We can go on and on about this nearly 4-minute alert, but it’ll be a lot easier to just watch for yourself and see what the fuss is about.

As for his channel, 88bitmusic is a streamer who will take requests from the chat to play music. He explains in his bio that he will take requests from every $5 donation or 500 bits from the large song list he provides.

Sometimes he will see a request from the chat and play it, no donation required. 88bitmusic boasts over 31,000 followers on Twitch, which is extremely impressive when you consider the majority of Twitch content revolves around video games.

Hasan jokingly called out a Spanish Twitch streamer named IlloJuan who made a hilarious rant after his fans told him they looked similar.

Hasan Piker, better known as HasanAbi, has met his match. Not in terms of political commentary, but rather, his appearance. It happened after the fanbase of a Spanish streamer named IlloJuan described the two of them as doppelgangers.

IlloJuan reacted hilariously to the comparison live on stream. Somebody captured a video of it, and it went viral. Eventually, it found its way to Hasan, who watched it live on his stream.

Hasan streams games, but his priority is to keep viewers updated on major political events.

“This guy? This guy me?” said IlloJuan. He pointed to the picture of Hasan. Then, he pointed to himself and flexed his biceps. “I am stronger.” But he didn’t look too convinced about his claim, and neither did Hasan.

“Hey! Hey! Listen,” said Hasan, while jokingly cracking his knuckles. “It’s on-site, mother f**ker.” He sat back and listened to the rest of IlloJuan’s rant.

“No, I mean, with glasses, maybe,” said IlloJuan. “But no, this guy is very strong. He kills me with one punch. Dangerous guy, this guy. What does this guy stream? He seems like he streams Team Fight Tactics.”

“What?” said Hasan, in disbelief. It seems like he thought that was the last game he’d be associated with. His viewers were in stitches, and so was he. They spammed the chat with laughter.

Fortunately, somebody told IlloJuan what he actually streams.  “Politics? He streams politics?” he said. “Ah, he speaks about politics, oh okay. Well, yes, with glasses, yes, he’s a smart guy.”

Hassan burst out laughing and stopped the video. He couldn’t get over the fact IlloJuan thought he streamed Team Fight Tactics. “Mother f**ker said Team Fight Tactics, bro. What?” he said.

“I think English [speakers] and Spanish speakers are [coming together on Twitch]. A lot of Spanish streamers are talking about English speaking streamers, too. What’s going on? I mean, listen, I’ve got a big Latina community in my audience too, so.”

Hilarious rants and reactions aside, it seems like Hasan could be on to something here. The two communities have overlapped quite a bit in recent weeks. For example, TheGrefg broke his own viewership record and became a household name among English speakers.

Hasan and his reaction to IlloJuan is another example. Who knows, maybe the two of them will collaborate in a doppelganger steam at some point. Perhaps it’s something their viewers would love to see.
