As one of Twitch’s most popular streamers, racking up over 3.1 million followers on the livestreaming platform, Pokimane is no stranger to bizarre on-stream moments that leave her and her army of viewers either speechless or cringing.
She has already been scarred for life by Belle Delphine’s Twitter account, and even gone through an embarrassing Twitch Sings moment, but things went up on a notch as she attempted to follow along with a Bob Ross nature painting during a special seven-hour livestream.
During her July 21 broadcast, the popular streamer had been following along with a Bob Ross painting for over an hour when the instructions began turning towards the finer details. The iconic clouds came into play but Pokimane was surprised to hear Ross say: “I get excited when I see these – they turn me on.”
Stunned by what was said, the streamer immediately stopped following along and turned to look straight down the camera. She was speechless for a few moments before uttering a solemn “What?” and returning to her painting.
Of course, the bizarre statement threw Pokimane off her game and she had to rewind the video for a brief moment to get back to where she was. However, the streamer had to take another brief pause as viewers began spamming her text-to-speech donations with hilarious comments.
After one in particular prompted the program to spit out an incredibly annoying noise, Poki screamed: “This is quiet painting time! Quiet!” before staring at her viewers and carrying on with the painting.
Ultimately, it didn’t seem to matter all that much as Pokimane produced an impressive landscape image of her own after a few more hours.
While it didn’t match the levels set by the famous television artist in the instructional video, fans were clearly impressed and asked her if she would consider selling it. Poki admitted that she was keeping ahold of this painting but would consider that possibility in the future.
If she does dig into the extensive Bob Ross archives for another painting, she might want to check it out beforehand first – just so she doesn’t run into any more strange comments.
