Streamer flexes incredible Pokemon knowledge on Twitch Jeopardy show

Twitch streamer ‘ConnorEatsPants’ has flexed his immense Pokemon knowledge during an intense game of Twitch Jeopardy, nailing five correct answers from the most obscure questions Ludwig ‘Ludwig’ Ahgren could think of.

Jeopardy is one of America’s most popular game shows of all time. Taking a panel of questions, each with money attached to them, players must buzz in with their answers to put the money into their account. However, one wrong answer can see you lose it all.

It’s easy to understand, and easy to replicate, and that’s why some Twitch streamers have taken to integrating the game show into their regular content. All’s more entertaining with a bit of money on the line, and big personalities giving awkward answers to straight-forward questions.

PokemonHow many of these Pokemon silhouettes could you guess?

However, for ConnorEatsPants in this $1,000 Jeopardy wager match on Ludwig’s stream, it was like he had the answer sheet in front of him for the Pokemon section. 

After getting control of the board, ConnorEatsPants went down the “Who’s That Pokemon?” question line to get as much cash as he could. First up on the list was Nosepass, with the iron golem’s iconic nose giving a dead giveaway to the Pokemon fanatic. 

However, the answers didn’t stop there, with him buzzing in correctly for Exploud, Vigoroth, and Dragonite — with the last answer giving Connor and JSCHLATT back the lead in the game.

With only the $1,000 Pokemon question left on the board, Ludwig changed things up, sharing a Pokemon squeal that the players had to match up. While the question got passed in, Connor took a stab in the dark after time was up and nailed the correct answer of Taillow.

The rest of the stream was in awe of Connor’s memory when it came to Pokemon, and it’s obvious that the popular game was a big part of his childhood.

“Oh my god, you’ve got like something up in that noggin dude,” said SwaggerSouls in complete disbelief. Ludwig himself professed that “if I need know Pokemon, I go to Connor,” which is rightfully so after that string of answers.

PokemonCould you guess the squeal of a Taillow with just a short sound bite like Connoreatspants?

Pokemon makes perfect sense for a Jeopardy section, with plenty of easy ways to get questions on the board. Telling the difference between outlines can be difficult, especially when there’s more than 700 Pokemon in the game’s universe. 

While it didn’t help them the duo win the game of Jeopardy, Connoreatspants has rightfully earned the title of Pokemon Master after this monumental effort, and showing that all those hours growing up haven’t gone to waste.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was stunned after a company copyright claimed his Meme Review with JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji. The Swede lost all the revenue for the upload due to their awful performance of “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic. 

On November 22, PewDiePie teamed up with fellow YouTube star KSI for an epic Meme Review. The duo tackled everything from British culture to Olatunji’s boxing match with Logan Paul.

Kjellberg later revealed on Instagram that the popular video had been copyright claimed by a company. The personality called the move “bulls**t” after the corporation took all the revenue over their Titanic joke.

The YouTubers’ awful performance of My Heart Will Go On got the video claimed for copyright.

PewDiePie & KSI’s Meme Review copyright claimed

PewDiePie’s Meme Review with KSI was a major hit on the platform, pulling in over 7.3 million views in just a few days. Fans of both YouTube creators were treated to a hilarious collaboration. However, the duo’s “attempt” to perform My Heart Will Go On on a flute and alpine horn caused the video to get claimed.

Kjellberg revealed the issue on his Instagram story on November 25. “So I got a claim on my KSI video. At the end, we played My Heart Will Go On,” he said, before playing a clip of their awful performance to demonstrate how absurd the claim was. “It’s too similar!” he joked.

It turns out the YouTuber had appealed the claim, but was denied. “So I appealed it, because its bulls**t why, and they rejected it! This is actually infringing on copyright according to this company!” he exclaimed, before breaking into laughter.

The 31-year-old explained that the company was now going to get 100% of the money made off the popular upload. “So all the revenue now goes to this company for the entire video. Like, what? Yeah, I just thought it was bulls**t, I don’t even know.”

The whole scenario is made all the more ridiculous when you consider that the Titanic joke was only a few seconds in a 26 minute upload. The fact that the company now gets to own the entire video is a good example how YouTube’s content ID system can sometimes be flawed.
