Twitch streamer has nail-biting run-in with cyclist while driving

Twitch streamer “daniellippens” had a scary run-in with a cyclist while driving down a crowded street in Amsterdam.

Daniellippens is a Dutch “Just Chatting” streamer who was putting on an IRL broadcast from his car with help from a friend.

The streamer had been driving for some time before he turned down a narrow street crowded with bicyclists on the shoulder.

Even though he was moving quickly, the first two riders managed to get to the side, and the third seemed safe, as well – until a crash happened off-screen and the streamer stopped after being flagged down by a pedestrian.

According to Reddit user “ignPIXEAL,” who posted the clip, the biker emerged from the scuffle unscathed, and the streamer ended up paying them €150 (roughly $165) for damages to their bicycle.

It wasn’t the first time during the stream that Daniel had a run-in with a pedestrian either – but in this earlier encounter, he at least barely managed to stop.

During this previous clip, the streamer was turning and seemed to be distracted, missing a man crossing the street in front of him until the very last moment.

The Twitch community guidelines actually address the act of streaming while driving. Live streams from within vehicles are indeed allowed – but interacting with Twitch chat while doing so is labeled as ‘self-destructive behavior.’

“Any activity that may endanger your life or lead to your physical harm is prohibited,” the guidelines read. “This includes dangerous or distracted driving,” among a wide array of various activities that could be deemed harmful.

Twitch has been cracking down on streamers who broadcast dangerous distracted driving to the internet in 2019, but it remains to be seen if daniellippens will face any consequences for his stream, since it’s hard to tell exactly who’s at fault for the crash.


PewDiePie hits out at company over KSI Meme Review copyright claim

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.
