So one of my favorite Youtube gamers is running a live stream charity at Twitch HQ this weekend and the gist was - if they managed to hit their goal of $20,000 Max would shave his facial hair off. Completely off.
I've been following this guy's Youtube career for a while and I've NEVER seen him without the beard. Never. So here goes:
With a pair of clippers and his girlfriends compact mirror, he shaved away, catching the excess hairs in a garbage pail between his legs. MLG, for sure.
He did some playing around of course, and had a lot of fun with the handle-bar mustache look for about five minutes. And then the time came and the mustache vanished.
It's like a completely different dude sitting there! My first thought was that he resembled the "model" guy from 10 Things I Hate About You. But you know what, the look is kind of growing on me. His gf, Renee, is not feeling so generous. ^_^
If you're curious, Extra Life is a charity created by gamers to raise money for children in need - those who are hospitalized or suffering from diseases. All money raised goes to this organization and if you donate $100 or more, you get a shout-out from Max and a chance to win some cool gear. So incentives aplenty - not that people need them.
The stream is still currently running, so pop on over and have a look for yourself!
