“Broxh hair flicks in front of the NZ Prime Minister.”

In a video posted by u/PetrifyGWENT, Broxh is seen doing hair flicks in front of the prime minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern, to her amusement. Upon seeing it up close and personal, she burst out a good laugh. Way to go, Broxh!
2. It’s Time
“After a month of nearly constant streaming, Ludwig’s subathon ends.”
Following his viral and now-historic 24/7 live broadcast, Twitch streaming star Ludwig Ahgren finally has a break after hitting his “backup” day-limit ceiling. It all began in March when he made an ambitious promise to extend his stream for 15 seconds every time there’s a new subscriber to his channel or gifted subscription.
Eventually, his ever-present countdown timer would hit heights of 60 plus hours at stages. It was a historic Twitch moment, one that’s made Ludwig the most subscribed streamer in Twitch’s history while also raking in more than $1 million in subs. In this video posted by u/xerxestrux on Reddit LSF, Ludwig signed off from the live stream, giving fans a salute.
3. Chess Grand Master Beat the World Champion
“18-year-old chess grandmaster Andrey Esipenko just beat world champion Magnus Carlsen in a classical game.”
The historic moment for the 18-year-old chess grandmaster Andrey Esipenko beating world champion Magnus Carlsen is captured in this video uploaded by u/Antiliani. Andrey became the first teenager to beat Magnus. Winning against him in any format is difficult, more so in Classical Chess.
Magnus losing in a classical game of chess is a rare sight to see. Over seven years, he only lost 28 times—that would be an average of four losses a year! It just shows how world-class a player like Magnus is. To beat Magnus was a special moment for Andrey. Bravo!
4. The Shot of a Lifetime
“Cadian with the play of a lifetime to win grand final CSGO pro league.”
One of the most exciting breakout teams in esports in 2020-2021 is Heroic. They recently boosted their CSGO rankings after taking home the ESL Pro League Season 13 trophy following their 11th series win in a row against Gambit. This success was made possible by their in-game leader and steady pillar—Casper “cadiaN” Moller.
The clip posted on LSF Reddit by u/_Areax shows more than 50 rounds of fine details and mental fortitude that Casper provided his team to stay in the fight for so long, along with the support of another team member, Martin “stavn” Lund.
5. T-Pain is Lit
“T-Pain’s stream starting in style”
There’s no better way to start a stream in style than rapper T-Pain. In a video posted by u/ClearlyHatin, T-Pain clearly started his stream right away by giving fans an opening freestyle introduction rap about his channel and himself.
It may surprise fans that T-Pain is on Twitch, but the rapper has been rocking it on the social media platform for five years now. His following has been multiplying since his first stream on Twitch, playing DOOM, and T-Pain combines his unique music talent with his insatiable passion for gaming. So keep on, Teddy Pain!
6. World Record for Mr. Krabs
“MoistCr1tikal WORLD RECORD on Mr. Krabs Overdoses on Ketamine with INSANE clip.”
Mr. Krabs Overdoses On Ketamine is a SpongeBob SquarePants parody downloadable PC fangame where you play as Mr. Krabs who delivers drugs to his friends and other Bikini Bottom residents while doing hilarious things on the way.
In a video clip posted by u/Bookmaster9 on LivestreamFail Reddit, Twitch streamer MoistCr1tikal makes an incredible world-record run of Mr. Krabs, with u/tc_train commenting that the previous world record was at 19.66. But the feat that MoistCr1tikal made was officially timed at 18.108, a number he believes might be unbeatable.
7. An Overwhelming Happiness of a Streamer
“Wholesome Streamer gets emotional after getting his first viewers in an hour.”
Nowadays, social media platforms have become a way to facilitate the sharing of thoughts, ideas, and information amongst people worldwide. However, it can also help regulate one’s emotions, especially those apprehensive of face-to-face interactions with others.
A video posted by u/Avoxio shows a streamer overwhelmed by his emotion after seeing the first few viewers several minutes into his stream, which filled him with gratitude.
8. The Drunken CSGO Player
“Streamer passes out drunk - wakes up and clutches CSGO round.”
Many posts fall in the category of funny and surprising, and this one by u/AlmightCo surely fits the bill. In the video, a player is seen somewhat drunk. He dozed off while on stream, then quickly woke up, played the game, and won the round! Who would’ve thought?
In the background, his friends and teammates are heard laughing out loud.
9. Who Could It Be
“Hasan gets left with a 50/50 with AOC and Ilhan Omar.”
In 2020, Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) and Ilhan Omar live-streamed the video game Among US on Twitch, which became the most unusual voter outreach even in recent memory. The live-streamed match is shown in a video posted by u/tzingkha on Reddit LivestreamFail.
Among Us was released in 2018, which InnerSloth developed. It’s described as an “online multi-player social deduction game” wherein ten tiny blobby astronauts run around the virtual spaceship and complete classic maintenance tasks while at the same time trying to find out who the “Impostors” are before they eliminate everyone.
10. Forsen Defeated the Ender Dragon in Minecraft Quickly
