Man Falls Asleep For Three Hours While Live Streaming On Twitch
However, one streamer may have figured out a new way of ensuring he keeps his energy levels up.
On paper, falling fast asleep for three hours while live streaming sounds like a bad idea, but Twitch streamer JesseDStreams woke from his slumber to find his popularity had surged.
A clip from the slumberfest shows the dozy streamer reanimating and jolting forwards suddenly, after his lengthy kip. He then casts a glance towards his screen, which he gawps at in a confused, post-snooze daze.
As his brain starts to fire up once again, he leans towards the screen to take a closer look. Upon realising that 200 people had been watching him sleep, and even sending him donations, a big smile shoots across his face and he enjoys a little chuckle.
No doubt his smile was boosted by the messages that welcomed him in the chat: "HE LIVES", "WE LOVE YOU", "THE AMERICAN DREAM" etc.
The clip of his awakening has since been viewed almost 2,000,000 times.
Indeed, it seems a lot of people tend to have an odd sort of soft spot for people who fall asleep when they perhaps shouldn't.
Last year, a 75-year-old bloke from Wisconsin, USA, proved a huge hit after pictures of him falling asleep while brushing cats were shared online.
It wasn't just a one off cat nap that sent him viral though - Terry Lauerman made a habit of visiting Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary to brush the cats, and almost always, he ended up passing out.
Just as JesseDStreams seemed to endear himself to viewers with his streaming siesta, it seems Terry won over staff at the sanctuary using the old falling asleep technique.
A post on the sanctuary's Facebook page read: "We are so lucky to have a human like Terry. Terry just came along one day and introduced himself. He said he'd like to brush cats. Eventually it became everyday. He brushes all of the cats, and can tell you about all of their likes and dislikes. He also accidentally falls asleep most days. We don't mind - cats need this! Terry is a wonderful volunteer."
So maybe, if you need to get in the good books at work, you should try falling asleep at your desk.
No doubt your boss will give you a hero's welcome once you've stirred
