Twitch streamer Jodi ‘QuarterJade’ was baited into jumpscares multiple times during her June 16 live broadcast, sending her into a state of speechless terror.

Jumpscare pranks are very popular amongst mischievous viewers, with many Twitch stars being baited into fits of terror in the past. A classic example is the knocking prank, with viewers tricking unsuspecting streamers by baiting them into clicking innocent looking videos that contain various sounds to scare them.

Female streamer QuarterJade is the prank’s latest victim, and she got led into jumpscares multiple times during her stream – the results are hilarious.

Pangolins aren’t scary… right?

Viewers got the unsuspecting streamer to click on a video of a pangolin rolling around in the mud. “Okay, okay…” QuarterJade says suspiciously as she starts to play the video. She then watches the animal writhe around in the mud, her eyes widening in awe as it seems to be having the time of its life. Suddenly, a series of loud knocking noises ruin the atmosphere, scaring her into thinking someone’s at her door.

The streamer looks around the room in shock before pausing the video, realising she’s just been baited into the classic jumpscare. “What? What? What the fuck? That was so sca-” she laughs, before being cut off by a screaming donation noise, sending her into absolute and utter terror.

“WHAT THE FUCK?!” she screams, before holding her head in her hands, completely frozen with fear. A single donation message saying “sorry” then cuts through the silence, making the situation a hundred times funnier – at least she got $25 out of it.

The ordeal wasn’t over yet

You’d think two jumpscares in one stream was enough, but later on in her broadcast, QuarterJade was tricked into a scare for the third time – but not by her viewers.

Finding the earlier scares absolutely hilarious, the female streamer decided to rewatch them and give viewers her reaction. “I kinda wanna see how much I freaked out,” she states as she starts to play the video.

“OH MY GOD!” she screams, as the knocking noise rings out again. At this point, QuarterJade can’t hold in her laughter, finding the fact she played herself absolutely hilarious. “That scared me AGAIN! What?! Oh my God, I just didn’t know, I just wasn’t expecting it! It sounds so REAL!”

Nobody likes being scared, but at least she could see the funny side of it – especially after being shocked three times. What a good sport.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
