EisThiele Delivers the Sweetest Beats and the Best Ice Cream on Twitch
Ice Cream is a Big (and Hug-able) Deal. Just ask EisThiele.
Chocolate. Vanilla. Strawberry. Cookie Dough. Peanut Butter. Banana. Mint Chocolate Chip.
Wait, what? What do you mean this article isn’t a review of all my favorite ice cream flavors? Ok fine.
How to Sell Ice Cream
So my colleagues have informed me that this article has an ice cream theme, but isn’t about ice cream. Johannes Thiele, also known as EisThiele, would probably appreciate I stick to that plan. 🙂
If you’ve never seen a dancing ice cream cone, let me introduce you to your next sweet experience. Streaming on Twitch from Dresden, Germany, EisThiele puts a fresh spin and new toppings on what it means to be a DJ. Most days you’ll get to enjoy the tasty sounds of psytrance, drum and bass, and techno in normal fashion.
But if you’re a frequent viewer who has been collecting their channel points, be prepared for that moment when you get to redeem those points for the “ICEcalation” and see EisThiele in his natural habitat: wearing a giant ice cream cone costume! This may be what happens when you combine Deadmau5, Marshmellow, and put them in a waffle cone.
So why does he offer his loyal viewers this delicious redeem? The term “EisThiele” (officially “Eisdiele“) in German means a store that sells ice cream (ice cream parlor), and since his last name is Thiele, it was a perfect match made in heaven. Plus it gave him a great opportunity to “mix-in” some of his own flavors and personality to ensure a truly delightful experience for fans to indulge in.
Are you since of the dessert and ice cream puns yet? Yeah, I didn’t think so. 🙂
So the next time you’re enjoying ice cream and listening to psytrance, drum and bass or techno, just remember that there’s probably a DJ for that.
