The best thing I saw on Twitch today was 88bitmusic’s donation alert set to Toto’s “Africa”

Twitch is so many things to so many people: like all of the other social platforms, it’s a place where people who are mostly too online get creative. And that gets doubly interesting because all of the content is streamed live. Today, I came across an incredible clip from 88bitmusic — otherwise known as the musician Trevor Gomes — which was a full music video to Toto’s 1981 megahit “Africa” triggered by a donation of $45.67. (Yes, 4-5-6-7.) Take a look.
Here it is. Arguably the best(?), most absurd, most needlessly elaborate donation alert in Twitch history, which we debuted yesterday.
You’ve never seen anything like this and you probably liked it that way. I’m sorry.https://t.co/80sSXMPjgd
