I usually frequent a video game live streaming site called Vidya Shorts. One of my best friends, Brendan, is one of the main streamers on that site and the one who introduced me to the place about three or so years ago. The site is owned and run by the head streamer, loldbz, who with his peculiar sounding voice, provides hours of entertainment to hundreds of viewers.  Currently, he is streaming Final Fantasy X and he has never, ever played an FF game before. While it is still entertaining to watch a total newb play an FF game, loldbz goes the extra mile to make his playthrough one of a kind to the audience, such as spamming the insufferable "laughing" from THAT one scene along with pictures of Tidus.

Here's a link to a recording of a stream he did last Saturday, at the time where he shows all his Tidus laughing macros:

With the amount of fans that VS has, there are, of course, "fan art", mostly in the form of the banners on the site. I came up with an idea for a banner to coincide with his current game and came up with two versions.

This is the first version I did that includes an image of one of the macros he uses whenever he KOs a "tough" mob by Stone effect, which is the grey butt you see behind Vidya Shorts. I redrew the "Teedus" face in Flash and customized it to fit with loldbz's "avatar," a hot pink Link from Twilight Princess. Here is the second, censored version I did, just in case he didn't want anything "vulgar" on the main site:
Both banners are done in Flash!
