Oliver ‘DickStacy’ Tierney has added his name to the list of people that are jokingly saying they want to play as a stand-in for Cloud9 at the FACEIT London Major in September, and he's put forward the best sales pitch we’ve seen so far.
DickStacy decided to jump on the bandwagon of announcing a desire to play for Cloud9 after Mohamad ‘m0E’ Assad surprised the community on July 15, saying he would donate all of his sticker and prize money if he got the opportunity.
m0E’s announcement immediately turned into something of a meme, with numerous community members copying it and using it on their timelines with some slight changes.
However, DickStacy’s is the best one yet thanks to his unique selling point. The Australian star implores Cloud9 to “give the people what they want… DICK stickers”!
Announcing that I am open to standing in for @Cloud9 at the major. Give the people what they want... DICK stickers. My cut of the money will be going to my choice of either PayPal or Savings account.

Teams and players get a cut of any revenue that Valve makes from their respective sticker sales at a Major, and you can almost guarantee that DickStacy’s stickers would sell like hot cakes!
DickStacy originally made headlines at IEM Sydney with his hilarious pre-game interview with Tres ‘stunna’ Saranthus when he said that his team was feeling “thick and pumped” before promising to go in “nice and hard” against SK Gaming.
Naturally, a meme was born immediately after the interview and DickStacy has been a community favorite ever since.
The Australian star currently competes for Grayhound Gaming but, due to their elimination in the early online stages of the Major qualification process, there is a possibility that he would still be deemed eligible to play for another team at the Major.
