Normally when I bring up the video streaming service Twitch here it is because someone (or their mom) “accidentally” had a wardrobe mishap of some kind. Today, however, it is for a whole different reason, but no less fascinating.
You see, Twitch streamer JurassicJunkieLive was playing scary little game of Outlast 2 for his 100 loyal followers when something suddenly happened that ended up with him making history.
That something that happened was his 2-year-old daughter suddenly appearing in his room at a particularly frightening moment during the game resulting in him damn near crapping his drawers.
Here’s how it all went down, according to a post he wrote on Reddit about the clip…
So I’ve been streaming around 2 months, got to about 100 followers (well 150, but 50 of those are by one troll). And have been really enjoying streaming to my small audience.
I don’t really play many scary games, and one night some one bought me Five nights at freddy’s and I screamed like a little girl. From then on I learned my followers enjoyed how much I hate horror games so every Friday I’ve done “Frightday” and played scary games. I stream Mon/Wed/Fri but Fridays are always when I pull in most people. So I’ve made sure I’ve always got a good scary game ready.
I then started to play outlast 2, and had many jump scares that was clipped but one of them was perfect.
My partner went to the shop and got me a Jack Daniels (in a can) and sent me 2 year old daughter up the stairs to give it to me (My office is in the loft). Due to my headphones I never heard her enter the room. At this point a crow jumped up in the game and made me scream, I then looked down to see a devil child looking back at me and screamed blue murder.
Now, with the clip having been viewed over 1.5 million times (a new record, according to Clips.GG) and with his follower count climbing to over 3,000 he says that while he appreciates the love, he really can’t handle any more fans.
At the moment I’m so overwhelmed by the response and happy to see people enjoying me being a pussy ;).
At this point I don’t think I want my channel to grow much larger as I’ve always enjoyed talking to my viewers and I think if I got any more, the chat would move to fast for both me and them to enjoy.
But anyway, thats my story of going from zero to number 1 spot in 24 hours.
That’s a good story. And so is the video…
