Twitch chat takes Overwatch streamer’s comments about his dog hilariously out of context

During a recent stream Overwatch streamer Jeff ‘emongg’ Anderson was talking about his 13-year-old dog, but Twitch chat was convinced he said something much different.

Emongg’s love for his pugs is evident on his Twitch channel, where his icon is a cartoon pug, and he talks about the dogs often on stream.

Recently, he was part of the Overwatch streamer program, where he streamed live from Blizzard HQ with several of the Overwatch developers.

During the stream on November 26, emongg was telling viewers about his dogs, when he made the mistake of mentioning his ex-girlfriend in one of the stories.

“I have another pug with my ex girlfriend who, she’s like 13 now,” the streamer casually told chat.

Obviously, emongg was talking about his 13-year-old pug, not a 13-year-old girlfriend, but the damage had already been done.

“No, not my girlfriend, my pug, my pug! No!” the streamer tries to convince chat. “My pug was 13, or is 13.”

Emongg can try all he likes but as we’ve seen, once Twitch chat latches on to an idea, there’s almost nothing that can be done to convince it otherwise.

OWL star Matthew “Super” DeLisi has been added as a guest on the show for the second time, linking up with popular presenter Jimmy Fallon. 

The Overwatch League is full of shining personalities, but it’s safe to say that the captain of reigning back-to-back champions San Francisco Shock is one of the league’s boldest and brightest.

The 20-year-old main tank player has certainly won the hearts of OWL fans, not only because his plays are the definition of brilliance, but because in every interview he features in his enthusiasm for the game is infectious.

This is likely why Jimmy Fallon has elected to bring back the OWL star for the 26 October episode of the classic American talkshow, The Tonight Show.

This isn’t Super’s first time on The Tonight Show

Back in 2019 Super made his inaugural television appearance alongside former Overwatch flex player turned Valorant star Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won. Both players provided America’s viewers with insight into how the esports world works, discussing their rigorous schedules and sharing how many hours they sink into the game.

Super’s guest appearance on the show coincided with the team’s 2019 victory over the Vancouver Titans in the OWL finals, therefore it makes a lot of sense that Super has been asked to return to the show following a dominant performance over Seoul Dynasty.

When to watch and why

It’s nice to see esports becoming more prominent in mainstream media, so it’s worth tuning in to support the growth of esports, as well as learn a little bit about Overwatch as well. Super certainly knows the game inside out.

You can tune in to watch The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon at 11:35pm ET on NBC on Monday, 26 October to see Super alongside superstars Sterling K. Brown and Zoe Lister-Jones.
