UK streamer JurassicJunkie breaks Twitch world record with 2m views

A British streamer - who has only been streaming for two months - has broken the Guinness World Record for the number of views generated by a single Twitch clip.

Tom "JurassicJunkie" Wheldon, from Nottingham, was playing Outlast 2 when something unexpected gave him a fright.

In the space of a week and a half, the clip has been watched 2.1 million times - and counting.

It's now the most-watched English-speaking Twitch clip of all time, and him and his two-year-old daughter have become an internet sensation.

Guinness has awarded JurassicJunkie with an official World Record certificate.

And he's received global coverage for the clip, with publications including the Daily Mirror, Daily Mail and Mashable covering the story. The clip was even featured on the Jimmy Fallon show in the US:

JurassicJunkie's Twitch follower count has gone from 100 to 4,000 following the mainstream attention.

He took to Reddit to explain what happened in the clip.

"My partner went to the shop and got me a Jack Daniels (in a can) - and sent my two-year-old daughter up the stairs to give it to me," he said.

 

"At the moment I'm so overwhelmed by the response and happy to see people enjoying me being a pussy."

 

"Due to my headphones I never heard her enter the room. At this point a crow jumped up in the game and made me scream, I then looked down to see a devil child looking back at me and screamed blue murder.

"I've had ladbible and YouTubers etc all contact me to use my clips. I even had family members contact me saying: 'WTF are you doing on my social feed this morning?'

"At the moment I'm so overwhelmed by the response and happy to see people enjoying me being a pussy."
