What would you do if a random stranger asked you to? see your feet? You’ll probably giggle awkwardly and start walking faster. Streamer Nyy did neither. She had a better idea and her twitch chat will never be the same again.
“Feet please,” asked Twitch user sissy6668. It’s a common refrain in online chats, but one that’s rarely answered. Internet DJ Nyy, formerly known as Nyykage, shockingly signed on mid-set Live stream from yesterday. Next thing the chat knew, Nyy had thrown one leg up on her desk, with a foam Lobster flip-flop on her foot. “What you’re looking for?” she asked just before the beat dropped.
Twitch chat went wild, and so did people on Twitter, when Nyy cut the moment and released it into the salty waters of the internet. The nicknames quickly spread – Lobster Floppers, Flopsters, Crustacean 3000s – as did people’s amazement. “THAT WAS A MASTERPIECE!” replied one person. “The absolute definition of never let ’em know your next move, a plo[t] Spin at every turn! IT SENT ME LMAO.”
What can I say, people are weird when it comes to feet. Especially on Twitch. Searches for “Streamers’ feet” have a combination 73 billion views on tik tok. There are YouTube videos that are all about rating different streamers’ feet. Some streamers have even been banned for showing their feet.
This allegedly happened to Thai Twitch streamer JustKethJustKeth. She claimed Twitch banned her for three days earlier this month for showing her foot. She made viewers pay to spin a wheel that would make them do certain things, including showing off their stumps. “It’s just a meme bruh,” she tweeted back then.
Although as Dexerto points out that Twitch has strict rules against things like “fetishizing behavior” and selling sexual content on the platform, which is vague as hell but, well, welcome to Twitch.
Nyy, on the other hand, managed to turn the whole thing upside down. “The lobster floppers my mod gave away weren’t always loved, but in the short span of a day, they’ve become family,” she said kotaku in an email. “Fending off bad vibes and foot issues, and most importantly, offering effortless fashion.”
No doubt the flopster fan cams won’t be far behind. “Everyone needs a pair of Crustacean 3000s in their closet in 2024,” Nyy wrote. “Laughing trolls cannot thrive if you already possess the weirder arsenal.”
