a quarter late for everyone

I can't think of a better way to end 2020 than watching the chimes on Twitch with Ibai

For most people the end of the year chimes are a very emotional moment, in which to collect mentally all those great and small events that have marked that year that is leaving and never to return.

I remember many end of the year, surrounded by many relatives, with my cousins ​​about to drown on the grapes while Ramón García's voice came out of the television. 2020 has been an atypical year, to say the least, and it is something that we can verify at the time of the chimes.

Ibai's 2020

2020 has also been an atypical year for Ibai, but in many ways tremendously positive. This year has managed to gather more than 250,000 people in one of his constant live streams (on his Twitch account) and a few days ago he raised more than 200,000 euros in a new installment of 'Ibainéfico': a solidarity event in which he had many well-known names.

This has also been a year in which has taken a giant step in terms of relevance and diversification of its content. From being a streamer who rubs shoulders with youtubers and gamers, he has gone on to have people like Neymar, Sergio Agüero, Courtois on his channel.

In fact, Marc Gasol himself went to the Ibai channel to announce his signing for the Lakers. As if that were not enough, at the end of November it was also part of the presentation video of the PS5, a great success when it comes to addressing the new generations.

And it is that 2020 has been a year in which we have spent a lot of time locked in our houses, and Internet entertainment took on an even greater force than it already had.

The Christmas holidays are also coming a bit strange, with all kinds of restrictions and concerns about what kind of consequences these family encounters across the country can bring. Since it's going to be a weird Christmas, maybe it's time to stop by to watch the chimes via Twitch.

With such an unusual Christmas, maybe it's time to head over to Twitch to watch the chimes.

In mid-November, Ibai confirmed on his Twitter account that this year he will be giving the bells through his account on the streaming platform, and he took the opportunity to ask his followers to convince their relatives:

A few hours ago he posted a tweet again in which appeals to families. Obviously, a large part of Ibai's audience is young people, and they tend to have less power of decision when choosing what to wear to see the chimes.

Interactive chimes

Personally, I can't think of a better way to end this 2020 than by completing a generational shift. All my life I have seen how my relatives they fought to decide in which chain we should follow this event.

Since some years, most of the attention has been captured by Cristina Pedroche, thanks to all the expectation and controversy that her dress usually generates. To many this seems a bit worn, and even harsh.

The Puerta del Sol will be empty, our dinners will also be emptier than usual, but surely many of us will feel more accompanied in a broadcast that is totally two-way.

That is one of the reasons for Ibai's success: communication with its audience. I am curious to see what it feels like to see the chimes with thousands of people connected to a stream, commenting and reacting (mutually) to what happens on screen. Being part of the event, a step further than being more than a mere spectator.

I only have one question. If Ibai, by any chance, gets to read this, I think we all need to know what the chimes are taken with: with grapes, with chocolate bars or with 12 servings of Ukrainian military food.
