Now, in his first stream following his exclusivity deal with his new home, YouTube Gaming, Ludwig set himself up hysterically and had to apologize for his silly mistake.

His recent stream was dedicated to addressing the move and a chat-based QnA session, where the YouTuber would be shot with a paintball gun if he doesn’t answer. But while explaining the mechanism, Ludwig said, “I have a deathtrap right next to me. This right here is a Twitch chat…”. Yes, you read that right. He said “Twitch chat” instead of YouTube.

He then held his hands up asked his fans to look past it, most of whom followed their favorite streamer from Twitch to YouTube. He wanted them to look past his slip-up and warned them it might happen a few more times, unintentionally, of course. “That’s gonna happen a couple times, those are kinks, we’re gonna glaze over those,” said Ludwig.

He also apologized to the platform officials and jokingly said, “Can we not remove the contract YouTube..um.. overlords, please?”.
