A clip taken from a recent stream of popular content creator Guy ‘Dr DisRespect’ Beahm has become the most viewed Twitch clip of all time. 

In the two weeks since being taken, the clip has accumulated an astonishing 3,086,707 views, a number that will likely continue to grow.

According to Twitch Strike, a tracker for the popular streaming platform, that view count makes it the most watched clip on Twitch, blowing past the previously top video, which now sits at 2,708,974 views. 

The clip, taken on September 11, shows the Doc abruptly stopping his stream after a passerby had fired shots at an upstairs window of his house, causing it to break.

In the video, the streamer breaks character and appears on camera as Beahm, something which happens so rare that the audience was immediately alerted to the seriousness of the situation. 

Due to the gravity of the situation, and Dr DisRespect’s massive presence as one of the most popular streamers on Twitch, this shooting garnered a lot of attention in the online gaming community.

Fortunately, neither the Doc nor anyone from his family were injured as a result of the event that took place, although the experience was likely to have been traumatic.

Local officials later revealed that, although they had not apprehended any suspects, the shooting was done using a BB gun from a nearby park.

According to police reports, the suspect had knocked out the window of Beahm’s Porsche sedan, in addition to shattering the upstairs window of his home.

YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg hilariously got startled while playing Amnesia’s sequel, Rebirth. The personality revisited the popular horror franchise 10 years later after it jump-started his career a decade ago.

While many know PewDiePie as the face of YouTube, this wasn’t always the case for the content creator. In 2010, he began his humble roots playing titles like Amnesia: The Dark Descent in his small apartment in Sweden.

The star revisited the popular horror franchise a decade later on October 19 when he played the game’s much-hyped sequel, Rebirth. However, Kjellberg’s dive into the new release hilariously left him startled just minutes into the story.

PewDiePie got his start on YouTube by playing games like Amnesia.

PewDiePie gets jumpscared

The popular YouTuber opened up his latest video by reflecting on the history his channel has had with the Amnesia series. “Here we are, 10 years later. Amnesia Rebirth is here. Obviously a lot of people know already, Amnesia was the birth of my channel,” he said.

The star then pointed out that after a decade of waiting, he was now finally able to play a sequel by the original team that made Dark Descent: “It’s just really cool be playing a sequel made by the original team. Alright, let’s begin!”

To match the ambiance of how he played the horror title in 2010, PewDiePie turned the lights down. However, a few minutes in to the story, a jumpscare startled him.”Are you f**king serious!?” he shouted, before putting his head into his hands and laughing. When another image flashed on the screen, he exclaimed, “Stop!”

In April, Pewds explained to viewers that he genuinely gets scared easily. “I’m so easily startled. It’s so funny, because when I used to do horror games, everyone would accuse me “he’s faking it! he’s faking it!”… I get scared easily!” he said.

Jumpscares aside, the 30-year-old’s return to the series was a treat for fans, with many nostalgic moments sprinkled throughout. The entertainer had callbacks to his 2012 Let’s Plays, such as carrying mundane items around as if his life depended on it.

PewDiePie shouldn’t feel too bad about getting scared so early on though, as he was wearing headphones – making the jumpscare all the more startling for him.
