Twitch streamer Esfand was hilariously horrified by a map of the world during a stream of Outlast 2, giving his viewers a memorable highlight clip. 

Esfand is a longtime World of Warcraft streamer that exploded in popularity with the release of Classic, and has quickly become a favorite in the community.

He decided to switch things up on October 27, playing the horror game Outlast 2 on stream. He was clearly getting immersed in the atmosphere of the game, and after a particularly tense moment eased fans with a hilarious jump scare.

Esfand, TwitchEsfand is a popular WoW Classic streamer.

The streamer had just spotted a body hanging from the ceiling and was already on edge thanks to the creepy atmosphere. As he began to approach it, a swarm of hands appeared, dragging the body away and causing him to scream.

He then turned around and faced the wall, only to scream in fear again – only this time it wasn’t a monster or a body, but just a poster of the world map. 

“Oh, that’s the world, ok” he said, before beginning to giggle at his silly mistake. He then had to take a brief break from the horror to compose himself after a scary, yet hilarious, moment. 

Meanwhile, Esfand’s chat erupted in laughter, both mocking him and enjoying the situation with a non-stop wave of lul emotes.

This was one of his first endeavors outside of WoW Classic in recent weeks but is unlikely to be the last as the American is getting into the Halloween spirit and has other horror games lined up.

However, he will also undoubtedly stick with his bread and butter game in World of Warcraft, where he entertains fans with his unorthodox retribution Paladin which he, against all odds, manages to make work even in the most difficult dungeons.

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.
