Streamer GiantWaffle has just broken the record for most hours streamed in a single month, and he appeared to cross the finish line without even realizing it.
Streaming has become a pretty big phenomenon. Many gamers appear to be just as interested in watching people play their favorite games as they are about playing the games themselves. Discovering how good a person can really be at a game you play is pretty interesting. However, realizing you'll never be as good as they are can be a bitter pill to swallow.
Some people are so good at certain games that streaming it while they play for the world to see is their job. The dream, right? How often a streamer fires up Twitch or Mixer ultimately depends on them. Some might only feel the need to do so for a couple of hours each day. Others will do so for a lot longer.
And we mean a lot longer. Streamer GiantWaffle broke the world record for most hours streamed in one month in November. That record? 570 hours. That's 19 hours per day, every single day of the month, as he proclaims during the video below. The best part? GiantWaffle doesn't even appear to realize what's going on as he crosses the finish line. Be warned, the clip contains language some people may find offensive.
GiantWaffle peers over his shoulder while streaming Euro Truck Simulator 2 and sees his Excel sheet is setting off fireworks. When he goes over to check what's going in, it's at that point he realizes the record has been broken. That he has been streaming for 570 hours during the month of November. Quite the feat. All we're wondering about now is when the poor guy finds the time to eat and sleep?
19 hours of streaming a day means GiantWaffle has been averaging five hours of sleep per night for an entire month. Even more impressive is that he managed to break the record during a month which only has 30 days, and did it with two and a half hours to spare. Imagine the hours he could tally up if he tries to break his own record in December? Although we'd hope the holidays would get in the way of him doing that.
