YouTuber Oladeji Daniel Olatunji AKA ‘Deji’ pulled a fast one at the 2018 Esports Awards while announcing the winner of Esports Publisher of the Year.

Rather than announcing the correct winner for the award, Deji opted to fake out the audience by first saying the wrong name.

“This award goes to… Epic Games!” Deji announced as the representative from Epic walked towards the stage.

After letting the moment linger for a few seconds, the YouTube star brought the whole room to a halt by saying, “No I’m joking, I’m joking, It’s a joke, it goes to Blizzard, well done Blizzard.”

The Blizzard representatives look a bit confused as they get up and head towards the stage, not knowing what to expect at this point in the night.

Pulling the jebait wasn’t the only thing Deji did on stage, as he also called out Twitch for allowing free streams of his brother KSI’s fight with Logan Paul to happen, “Yo, shoutout to Twitch for illegally streaming our fight, you owe us money! Woo!”

The Youtube star’s time on stage definitely kept things interesting, but award shows might take a hard look at having him on in the future after that fake out.

Other winners from the night include Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, who won Streamer of the year and Esports Personality of the year, as well as Overwatch, which took home the award for Esports Game of the Year.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.

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.
