A Twitch streamer was left speechless after taking on a dare from his chat went horribly wrong, and they baited him into a web browser prank instead.

The interaction between Twitch personalities and their chat is one the most important parts of streaming, as building an engaging relationship is what keeps viewers coming back for more.

However, time and time again, streamers have learned the hard way that there will always be those using the “live” aspect to their advantage, where pulling pranks is too easy to resist.

From classic donation name pranks, to tricking people to opening risque links, trolls have many tricks up their sleeves. A Twitch partner was an example of this when a dare turned into a hilarious web browser history mishap.

Streamer’s chat baits him into revealing Bbrowser history

StarCraft 2 streamer ‘special_‘ was in the middle of his broadcast, when someone in his chat dared him to type ‘por’ into his web browser, which caught the attention of the personality.

“Type por in your browser? You dare me? Okay, let’s see what happens when I put that in my browser,” he said, taking on the dare from the devious member of his audience.

“Let’s see… por…” he read out loud, as he typed it into his web browser, which then instantly filled in with an adult content website. The streamer was shocked, and quickly closed out of his browser in embarrassment.

The prank appeared to reveal the streamer’s web browser history which left him temporarily speechless, before he laughed and exclaimed, “That was a link, I promise! It’s okay, I promise someone linked that!”

He continued to laugh off the incident. “Okay, someone linked me that. So I clicked it by mistake!” he said, as he explained why the risque site content autofilled into his browser. Which to be fair, clicking a link by accident would add it to your browser history.

Despite the unexpected moment, the StarCraft player was able to laugh the whole thing off, and continued to his broadcast not letting the moment phase him.

The Twitch personality shouldn’t feel too bad though, as the very nature of broadcasts being live to the world means that there will always be someone out there trying to take advantage of the moment.

Most streamers have been there before, and have fallen for the same kind of pranks in one form or another. If nothing else, it’s a lesson to not always give the chat what they want, as they could be setting you up.

Twitch Star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is no stranger to trash talk, but what he heard while playing Call of Duty: Cold War was enough to throw even him for a loop.

Call of Duty: Cold War is one of the hottest games on Twitch right now, and xQc certainly seems to have gotten a taste of the series’ legendary chatroom toxicity.

We’re not saying that this is a symptom of the CoD community overall, but the series has built up a reputation for being host to some hilariously venomous lobbies. xQc found this out firsthand while sitting in a lobby, and after getting knocked out.

The face when the CoD lobby gets a little too lit.

Ask anyone who’s played Call of Duty for long enough, and there’s a good chance is they’ll have a hilarious story about a toxic lobby or three that they’ve been a part of over the years. Now, xQc can officially add that to his list of accomplishments as well.

During a late-night/early morning stream on November 17, Felix ran into a rowdy lobby he tried to calm down in vain, before being called out himself.

“Guys, guys, guys, it’s 3 AM on a f***ing Monday, you guys are playing Call of Duty talking shit,” the former Overwatch pro begged, to no avail, and got told to shut his mouth, just not quite with that exact term.

After this, you’d probably figure things couldn’t get more radioactive, right? Well, you would be wrong, because Felix also ran into some incredibly toxic personalities while he was playing.

After getting knocked out, xQc asked, “It was you right?” before being told in graphic detail what his assailant wanted to do to him. We won’t type the quote out here, but the clip below should give you the gist.

The Canadian does come from the wild west that can be Overwatch games, but nothing really compares to being cursed out by an absolute random in CoD.

Whether Felix will return to Black Ops remains to be seen, especially since he seems to have had the full experience during this stream alone.
