XQc reacts to being included in Daily Dose of Internet

Felix “XQc” Lengyel, one of the largest streamers on Twitch, found himself on an episode of Daily Dose of Internet, a popular Youtube channel with 14.1 million subs where the host highlights varied news and topics.

XQc would often watch these episodes alongside his viewers, streaming his reactions. The streamer was surprised to see himself in one of these episodes after being a long-time viewer of Daily Dose of Internet. However, this depiction wasn’t the most flattering.

As the clip begins, the commentator says: “These streamers are trying to make electronic music without having any knowledge of music theory,” meanwhile XQc can be seen randomly selecting notes in the music program while saying,

“You don’t need music theory. This is just like… like, a baby could figure this out over time. It’s just like blocks. You’re finding noises you like and stuff, you don’t really need theory.”

XQc then plays the music before admitting, “Okay, I think you need theory”. Rather than be annoyed at the unflattering clip, XQc just laughs and says, “Good one, dude.”

His Twitch chat channel members then repeatedly say, “This guy knows how to make it in a Daily Dose of Internet video.” — a reference to an early 2021 clip where XQc reacted to another episode of Daily Dose of Internet where a person can be heard saying, “This guy really knows how to draw a perfect circle”. XQc then repeats the line himself while laughing. This clip went viral, earning over 700,000 views on Youtube and having multiple re-uploads.
