This sounds like an episode of Black Mirror.
When Twitch streamer JesseDStreams fell asleep for three hours while in the middle of a livestream, he woke up to find hundreds of viewers still tuned in to him snoozing away.
Check out the footage of him waking up here:
JesseDStreams was streaming in the Just Chatting category on Twitch, watching TV and eating. This went on for about… https://t.co/5vkeXZzjhe— UGA (@UGA) 1548678787.0
As he rose from his slumber, the chat erupted.
"We love you!"
Ya, I laughed at the comment "the 👏 American 👏 dream".
My absolute favorite movie!
Twitch is usually "used for video game tutorials; the nature of Twitch allows mass numbers of learners to interact with each other and the instructor in real time."used for video game tutorials; the nature of Twitch allows mass numbers of learners to interact with each other and the instructor in real time."
"Twitch is also used for software development learning, with communities of users streaming programming projects and talking through their work."
Users can make money via donations from users who are tuning in.
When JesseDStreams woke up, he found he was still receiving donations.
The first slight smile, then the realization at the end make the video. Just a guy laughing at himself and seeing the humor in the situation.
I liked this. The way he sits up and gets his bearings and then gives a little smile when he sees the viewer count (and probably the chat). It's like when you're a kid and you wake up from a nap and smell that your mom or dad is making your favorite dinner.
I fell asleep in Cadiz Thule in EQ. There were only a handful of us that could do it back then. So I had been up for a long time in there grinding EXP. Bam! Fell asleep. The entire zone rallied around my character near the zone in area to keep my gnome necro alive from all the trains.
I woke up around 11 am and was like: omfg how am I alive?? And the entire zone just was cheering and laughing and making fun of me.
Was one of the best online gaming moments ever!
Unfortunately, Twitch actually has a policy against this. Sleeping is considered unattended content and can get a user banned.
You can get banned from twitch for this.
They tightened up on IRL streaming.
No content featuring people in private areas or private content from social media profiles without everyone involved's consent. (Means that you technically cant do a live stream while out eating or shopping or at a bar or anything without everyone in the location's permission)
You also cant stream unattended content. Meaning no sleeping on stream, no 24/7 camera feeds like a security camera feed or something, and no baby/pet cams.
But thankfully, it doesn't seem like JesseDStreams' account has been touched by admin.
And man, is that "what day is it even" look on his face when he wakes up relatable.

When your reaction is that pure, you really have no choice but to become an internet sensation.
Don't you wish you could just make money sleeping?
