The Hot One Break was a break in uploads caused by a copyright strike.
Haltmann uploads and quickly deletes "The four horseman of the apocalypse", and then stops uploading. After "two weeks of nonstop fighting", Haltmann then releases "A Hot Onennouncement" for the new album A HOT ONE.
The channel description's "top bidder" is replaced with:
Current top bidder: Loadsamoney[note 1]
It was later revealed that Sony Music Entertainment (Japan)'s take down of "God of ink - Splatoon 2" gave the channel its third strike on June 30, preventing the team from uploading for a week and a half, causing this unplanned break.
