Small Twitch streamer, known as ‘Curtoss’, recently found an unexpected bump in followership and views following his June 3rd charity stream.
The event was organized to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, a charitable organization dedicated to fighting blood cancers.
Curtoss ingeniously set a series of donation goals to incentivize his audience to contribute. The highlight of the event was the streamer’s promise to shave all of his hair if the donations reached a total of $1000.
The Unexpected Discovery: A Headphone Indent
As Curtoss reached the $1000 donation goal, he shaved his head live on stream, a move that went viral almost instantly.
However, the true reason behind the clip’s virality wasn’t the act of shaving itself, but the unexpected discovery that followed.
Curtoss and his viewers noticed a visible notch or indent at the top of his head, precisely where his headphones usually sit during gaming sessions.
The discovery left the streamer shocked, exclaiming, “Dude, I have an indent right here, this is where my headphones go, I have a f**king headphone indent on my head.”
The Reddit Verdict: A Temporary Indent
A wave of discussions was initiated after the incident, particularly in a Reddit thread related to the clip on r/LivestreamFail.
Many users commented on the possible reasons behind the headphone indent, with one user stating, “The indent is temporary. It’s only skin. Headphones aren’t gonna cause a permanent dent in your skull.”
The incident led many to draw parallels with Tyler1, a prominent League of Legends streamer known for the temporary dents caused by his prolonged use of headphones during gaming sessions.
Tyler has also mentioned these dents multiple times during his streams, reiterating that they are not permanent and tend to fade when he takes breaks from his headset.
Embracing a Good Cause: More Than Just a Viral Moment
Curtoss’ viral stream was not just about the unexpected headphone indent revelation; it was a commendable act of charity. The streamer demonstrated significant courage in shaving off hair he had been growing for months, or even years, all in the name of a charitable cause.
This event also offers a lighthearted yet critical reminder for gamers and streamers who spend long hours wearing headphones.
The headphone indent may be temporary, but it’s a clear sign of prolonged usage that could potentially impact comfort or even health. This revelation is likely to encourage users to take regular breaks and consider the ergonomics of their gaming gear.
Despite the unexpected turn of events, we hope Curtoss continues to see increased success in the future.
His act of bravery for charity, coupled with the surprising discovery, made for a memorable and meaningful stream that will undoubtedly contribute to his growth as a Twitch streamer.
With the continued popularity of gaming and streaming platforms, streamers like Curtoss who leverage their platforms for social good contribute to a more inclusive and positive online community.
Events like these prove that gaming is not just about entertainment, but can also serve as a powerful tool for philanthropy and awareness.
