Timothy "TimTheTatman" John Betar and Herman Miller have announced that the Twitch streamer is set to become the furniture company's first global gaming brand ambassador.
The announcement was made on Timthetatman's stream on 7th April. Tim has been known to use the Michigan company's chairs for years and he spoke of his pleasure at being able to partner with a company in a truly organic manner.
"After streaming and sitting for long periods of time, I realised the importance of quality products, and investing in them for your health," said Tim in an interview released alongside the announcement. "Once I switched to Herman Miller for gaming, I could immediately feel the difference."
Tim had teased something big for the past couple of days via his stream and Twitter, and he made his viewers wait until 6 pm GMT to finally reveal what it was all about.
