A Twitch streamer who wanted to entertain his audience by dancing in the middle of his broadcast failed miserably when his attempt to do so was interrupted in a somewhat worrying way.
A major component to streaming is keeping your audience engaged and entertained. Personalities will do all sorts of outrageous things to keep eyes on their broadcast, and the donations coming in.
However, sometimes things don't work out as the streamer intends, and the mistake is caught on video for thousands to see, as their attempt to impress their viewers just doesn't land.
Twitch personality 'EinarKuusk' became the perfect example of this, as his plan to break out into a dance in the middle of his Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order stream backfired spectacularly.
Streamer's dancing ends in epic fail
The Estonia-based streamer was playing the latest Star Wars, when the popular song 'Rock 'n' Roll, Part 2' which was recently featured in the 2019 Joker film, inspired the Twitch personality to get up and dance.
When song began to play, he immediately took his headphones off, and went to jump on his bed. However, once he bounced up, his head smashed the light above him, and he fell to the ground – ending his dance before it even began.
To add salt to the wound, the light fixture came out and hit him on the head on the way down. Holding his head with both hands, the streamer let out a groan as he rubbed, and told his audience that he needed a bandage.
Einar posted an update an hour after the incident on his Instagram, showing the damage that had been done. The photo shows a bloody cut on his head, as the light he hit broke skin.
Along with the photo he posted he posted a caption which roughly translated to "The lamp thing happened in the stream: the ceiling lamp fell on my head. All places full of blood. I went to get it sewn up and got a tetanus injection."
While the moment garnered laughs from his chat, it seems that the streamer had to actually get stitches on the cut, and even get a injection, which shows the cost of his dancing mishap.
In the end it seems that the streamer is safe and the injury, while in need of care, wasn't more serious then a cut. But if nothing else, it shows the unpredictable nature of streams.
As of the time of writing this article Einar Kuusk has over 7,900 followers on his Twitch channel, and is an actor that has been featured in films in Estonia, as well as in a role on the BBC mini-series 'The Capture.'
