YouTubers ‘HopCat’ and ‘LittleZ’ did their best to recreate some of Super Smash Bros Ultimate’s most insane moves in real life – with the help of some trampolines.

The content creating duo took turns drawing a series of moves from the games out of a hat. Moves like taunts, aerials and Smash attacks were written on tiny pieces of paper, and when one of the two picked a move, they would need to perform it.

Considering Smash is one of the more high-flying, air-based fighting games in existence, the trampolines came in handy, letting the YouTubers get the height they needed to execute the abilities.

For their part, with some help from the trampolines, the duo were able to perform some of the more outlandish (and stylish) abilities that involve flips, somersaults and multiple spins.

For instance, thirty seconds in, LittleZ was tasked with performing Joker’s Down Air, which involves literally doing a backward flip – yet the YouTuber was able to pull it off with relative ease, thanks to the added bounce from the trampoline.

Even more impressive was when HopCat had to perform Mario’s simple jump with multiple rotations at 1:40, and the entertainer managed to convincingly stick the landing.

Some of the more difficult moves, such as Yoshi’s Down B at seven and a half minutes, and Wii Fit Trainer’s Neutral Air, proved to be slightly challenging, with neither entertainer pulling those off quite as well.

To end the video, HopCat attempted a move he was a bit nervous about trying – a Luigi double jump backwards. “It’s really just another way of saying ‘I want to do a double backflip,’” he joked.

After gaining some serious air, the YouTuber performed a whopping three and a half flips, but ended up unfortunately botching the landing.

With so many characters in Smash and six more still to come, there’s still plenty of moves for the duo to try out and add their own spin – both literally and figuratively.

Hopefully, this isn’t the last we’ve seen of the Smash moves in real life series.

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.
