Twitch star Sykkuno was, hilariously, left baffled after Corpse Husband informed his Rust group that musician Halsey was down to join them for a future session of Among Us.

With Among Us exploding in popularity after it’s release, some of the biggest content creators around have linked with celebrities, sports stars, and even politicians for a game or two.

Corpse Husband, who has over six million subscribers on YouTube, has become a mainstay in these types of lobbies – linking up with different celebrities for games. 

On January 9, he, alongside Sykkuno, Valkyrae, and other members of their Among Us group, was playing on OfflineTV’s Rust role play server when he informed them that popular musician Halsey was down to play with the group. However, Sykkuno didn’t have a clue what was going on, and it made for a hilarious highlight.

Among Us has become a gaming and streaming sensation throughout 2020.

“Halsey just messaged me back but I don’t think she’d be down for drunk Among Us,” said Corpse, sparking laughter from others about the potential of getting wasted while playing Among Us. 

Sykkuno’s chat bombarded him to respond to Corpse, spamming Halsey’s name over and over again. However, he was a little lost and had no clue what he was missing. “Halsey? What’s Halsey mean? Is that the name of the tank?” he asked, referencing one of Rust’s quests.

“I have no idea what’s happening but… what? I’m so confused,” Sykkuno added, looking to his chat for answers. “What does that mean? I’m very confused.” 

Even though his chat continued to spam that Halsey is a musician and that Sykunno’s Among Us group would be getting another celebrity involved, he couldn’t make heads or tails of it. 

The streamer, hilariously, still thought they were talking about something Rust related and simply went about his way. Maybe though, when they all link up for Among Us, he’ll realize what his chat couldn’t stop messaging him about.

Rachel ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter could be on track for one of the biggest gaming livestreams in history, as the 100 Thieves star has teased a potential Among Us session with Ariana Grande.

Hot off the heels of becoming the world’s most watched female streamer in 2020, the new year is shaping up to be even bigger for Valkyrae. Partway through a February 10 broadcast, the YouTube sensation teased a huge Among Us stream that could be in the pipeline.

Among Us took the internet by storm in the latter half of 2020, and no one capitalized on the trend quite like Valkyrae. The biggest gaming personalities crossed over with countless mainstream celebs to make the murder mystery title one of the biggest games of all time.

Now, the 29-year old YouTube streamer is putting plans into motion for one of the biggest crossovers yet. In 2021, it’s “very possible” that we see Valkyrae streaming Among Us with Ariana Grande.

When a fan posed the question during her latest stream, Valkyrae initially brushed it off. Could she ever convince the singer to join an Among Us session? “She’s out of my league,” Valkyrae responded. “She is so far beyond… I won’t be able to reach her.”

While she might not have a direct line of contact, thanks to her connections at 100 Thieves, the idea has already been pitched. “She knows that we want to play Among Us,” Valkyrae confirmed.

“100 Thieves got Scooter Braun to talk to her about it. It’s just gonna take a million years or it’s not gonna happen.” Given Grande is one of the world’s biggest celebrities, organizing such a groundbreaking event won’t happen overnight – but Valkyrae teased that it certainly could come to fruition.

“It’s kinda cool knowing that there is a slim chance that she could. It’s a very slim chance,” she added, “but it’s possible.”

100 Thieves have a bigger history with Grande than first meets the eye; Valkyrae even met the singer backstage in 2019, thanks to their connections. Meanwhile, Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop interacted with her a great deal on the back of a viral video that same year.

Thus far, there’s no date set in stone and there’s no confirmation it will go ahead – though the door appears to be wide open for an eventual Among Us collaboration between Grande and Valkyrae.
