36-year-old streamer Jesse had fewer than 1,000 followers but that changed overnight when the man drifted into an accidental nap. More than 200 people tuned in to watch, donating money and waiting for him to wake up.

“I usually stream games,” Jesse told Bored Panda. “But I like to have a chill streaming from my couch stream once in a while where people can just come by and hang out and just have a conversation.”

“Prior to me falling asleep, the session had been going just like any other,” he added. “A few visits from people and I’m not sure if anyone actually chatted.” But then Jesse drifted away.

So, article-writer, what triggered all these people to watch? Why are they calling him dad? There's a lot of information missing here...

Well, Twitch is a platform generally frequented by very young people. And someone 36 y.o. can be easily called "Dad"...

I'm finding it hard to explain but it was really funny! Also, I can't imagine what makes people watch a person sleep for 4 hours... it's beyond me...
