While waiting in the lobby for Minecraft Monday to start, popular Twitch star Félix ‘xQc‘ Lengyel delivered an epic speech for the ages to rally his team and audience before the Minecraft competition began.

Overwatch pro xQc is teaming up with m0xy for week 10 of KEEMSTAR’s Minecraft Monday on August 26. The ‘Hunger Games’ mode pits teams against each other in the sandbox title until the last squad left standing wins.

While waiting for the competition to begin, the Canadian streamer turned to his audience to give an epic speech that touched on everything from fate to the cosmos as he rallied his team into battle.

“You chose to be here!”

As the participants for Minecraft Monday waited in the lobby, xQc launched into a speech to pump his team and audience up: “You could be anywhere on earth. In anybody’s chat. Anywhere on Twitch. On any website.”

“You could be watching a movie on Netflix. You could be watching any other stream. But instead, you are here. It’s not a place where you just landed on by random pure luck. By mere coincidence. You chose to be here. And me and m0xy also chose to be here!” he said proudly.

As the music swelled in the background, the Twitch star got deeply philosophical. “You’re a part of something bigger. Something greater. Something that thrives past our times. Something we don’t even understand yet, dude,” he ranted passionately.

But he didn’t stop there – the Canadian then said that they were making history together. “Some day were going into history books, boys and girls. Because today…” he paused, before slapping his hands together. “… Marks the day where m0xy and me take rank 1!”

The Overwatch pro’s epic speech built up to an equally epic climax when the Twitch star couldn’t remember what the prize pool actually was. “And win $5,000 dollars! Or is it 10?”

Unsure what the actual winnings were, he continued screaming “$10,000 dollars!” before his partner m0xy cut in “It’s $10,000 divided by 2.”

This caused the pro to stumble. “So it’s $5,000! No, it’s $10,000!”, before m0xy tried to cut back in again, which caused a xQc to frustratingly smack his hand on the desk and say “dude, I’m almost done with the speech, dude!”

While the epic speech comically sizzled out at the end by confusing prize numbers, it seemed to hit his audience deep as his chat repeatedly posted “I was there PogU”.

David Dobrik and his assistant Natalie Mariduena were left in utter shock after their couch idea for an app raised $4 million in investment.

The internet star announced on Wednesday that his photography app Dispo, or David’s Disposable, is being invested in by Reddit Co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

David is a social media giant with an enormous subscriber base of 26 million on his main and second channel combined, and over 22 million followers on TikTok.

Natalie celebrated the news on Instagram with a picture of her and David holding a real disposable camera, with the caption, “still can’t believe this couch idea just raised four million dollars hahaha so ridiculous, but so exciting!!”

David also expressed his disbelief, adding on his own Instagram: “We just raised 4 million dollars for Davids Disposable!!!!! Hahahahaha WHAT!!”

The app itself is designed to mimic what is like to use a real disposable camera. You take the pictures and you can’t see them until the next day at 9am. The idea came to David and Natalie after they realized just how much they loved the surprise of finding out what the pictures looked like after they were developed.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the latest investment will be used to add new features to the app, including allowing users to pool their images all in one place.

David himself has made no effort to hide his obsession with disposable cameras. He has his own alt instagram account, which has amassed 3.4 million followers, called “David’s Disposable” dedicated entirely to pictures taken with these cameras. He has even inspired other influencers including Tana Mongeau and Addison Rae to do the same.

The popular vlogger’s business plans are currently booming. He recently released a new advert with model Charlotte D’Alessio for his new perfume “David’s Perfume”, after which he had to shut down rumors that the pair were dating.

David may have potential plans to start a pizza empire too after trademarks for the phrase ‘Doughbrik’s’ were uncovered by a TikToker.

On the other hand, his YouTube channel has taken a backseat in recent months; he hasn’t posted any videos since April. Perhaps this is why.
