While Pokimane started as a video game streamer, she has, over the past year, hosted quite a few ‘just chatting’ streams. Recently, the 24-year-old had announced her digital avatar, becoming the latest notable streamer to join the ‘Vtuber phenomenon.’ She has also grown popular because of her cheerful personality and the ability to engage with her fans for hours.
While there have been a plethora of controversies that she has been involved in over the past year or so, things appear to have changed since her return. Pokimane has recently been playing Among Us with notable personalities such as Ninja and PewDiePie. She was even featured on American congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Among Us stream.
Recently, she appeared for refusing ‘free gifts’ and donations from her viewers, and even gave a surprise visit to Twitch streamer Sykkuno, all caught on camera. Regardless, it appears as if Pokimane is well and truly past her recent controversies.
Pokimane was not expecting this while trying to mimic American painter Bob Ross
Bob Ross was a popular American painter, art instructor, and the creator/host of the show, ‘The Joy of Painting.’ His show has always been a source of encouragement to all aspiring painters. Despite the artist's unfortunate demise in 1995, the verified YouTube channel, 'Bob Ross,' has gained around 4.3 million subscribers to date.
In a recent stream, Pokimane was trying out one of his guided painting videos related to painting a scenery.
As she went on, the Twitch star actually looked rather impressive and was on her way to create a beautiful painting, as you can see below. However, something that the painter said caught Pokimane off-guard.
While explaining about painting clouds in one of his paintings, Bob Ross ended up saying the following:
“See there? I get excited when I see these. They turn me on.”
Needless to say, Pokimane was stunned upon hearing this. She turned around to face the camera quickly, looking very confused. Unable to make sense of what the painter had said, she eventually exclaimed ‘what?’ rather comically and decided to continue painting. You can watch the entire incident in the video below.
