Streaming stars Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop and Rachel ‘Valkyrae’ Hofsetter teamed up with Hollywood actress Margot Robbie, who plays Harley Quinn, to promote her and DC’s new movie Birds of Prey.

The 100 Thieves content duo appeared at the Game Awards in Los Angeles, California, which awarded many people and companies across the gaming and esports sector as well as celebrating new, upcoming content for the next year or so.

Among other things, viewers got a first look at the Xbox Series X and celebrated the wins of their favorite games and personalities.

In one exciting bit though, we saw the stars of YouTube and Twitch take to the stage alongside Margot Robbie, dressed fully in her Harley Quinn get-up, to help promote DC’s new film Birds of Prey.

As ‘Harley’ introduces Birds of Prey, saying that they’re “hijacking the Game Awards”, the camera cuts to the three of them together when Harley looks at her cohorts and simply says “you have got to be kidding me… Valkyrae, CouRage, I said no.”

After pleas from the content creators to let them join Birds of Prey, she tells them that they’re “just not Birds of Prey material,” after which CouRage can no longer hold in his emotions and says “but I love you.” They then show the trailer for the upcoming female-led film.

The 100 Thieves team as a whole is starting to get pretty comfortable around major celebrities, as evidenced by the success of CouRage’s parody video of Ariana Grande’s ‘Boyfriend’, in which the pop star herself made an appearance to help complete the video.

Big names such as Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rosie Perez, and Ewan McGregor also feature in the motion picture, but only Robbie was on-hand to debut the film to the Game Awards audience.

The film will be a follow-up spinoff to the extraordinarily popular Suicide Squad, which released in 2016, with Quinn having left the Joker to cause havoc on her own.

It’s interesting to see how far some of these personalities have come in the last few years, with a couple of streamers helping to promote a major Hollywood film a pipe dream once upon a time.

That said, it was a fun skit that no doubt would have done enough to satisfy fans of both Valkyrae and CouRage, as well as DC fans.
