While popular livestreaming platform Twitch gives viewers ample ways to support their favorite content creators, many fans opt to express their gratitude in the form of cash – with some sending huge amounts of dough, despite their financial constraints.

Popular Korean Twitch streamer and YouTuber ‘HAchubby,’ known for her hilarious impressions of streamer Dr Disrepect, was in the middle of a ‘Just Chatting’ broadcast on June 2 when she received one such massive donation.

The fan, going by the screenname ‘totally_not_a_weirdo,’ sent HAchubby a whopping $1,000, asking if she needed a new laptop in their donation message.

HAchubby was understandably floored by the donation, rising from her chair with palms open as if incredulously gesturing toward her computer.

The streamer was so shocked that she held the pose for nearly thirty seconds before sitting back down in her chair.

HAchubby was rendered speechless by the massive amount, replaying the donation message as if to make sure she read it correctly.

“Oh my god, what is this? Laptop?” she finally cried out, before typing in a search query for laptops in her browser.

That wasn’t the end of HAchubby’s luck, either; the donator gave her another $600 for good measure, this time asking her to “get a very good laptop.”

The streamer cried out with emotion, placing a hand over her mouth in shock as she continued her laptop search.

Of course, HAChubby isn’t the first streamer to receive shocking amounts of money from fans, either – in fact, popular streamer and former CS:GO pro Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek was the subject of four massive donations from two separate fans in late April, leaving him similarly speechless.

“I don’t know whether it’s legit, but if it is, I love you,” Shroud commented after receiving three donations totaling $3,050.

However, Shroud later decided to turn up the humor, after getting a $999 donation from another viewer.

“Not even a thousand dollars?” Shroud joked. “Come on man. I’m joking – thank you! That’s not even the same person!”

This wouldn’t be the first time HAchubby has made waves on Twitch: the streamer caught ample attention after imitating popular streamer and gamer Dr Disrespect, creating her own version of his “Raul” and “YAYAYAYA” sound effects with hilarious results.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
