Professional Fortnite player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has got the attention of Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk, after the popular streamer purchased a Tesla vehicle for a hilarious reason.

Back in October 2018, Tfue sent out a Tweet asking Elon Musk if he could help him “get better internet”, to which the mogul simply replied “Yes”.

Surprised that he was even given a response, the Fortnite pro pledged to buy a Tesla, simply because Musk replied to him.

Fans presumed that Tfue was only joking, as months went by with no news of a newly purchased Tesla.

However, on January 14, Tfue proved that he was a man of his word, posing next to his brand new Tesla Model X, the car manufacturer’s flagship SUV model.

Elon Musk took notice too, despite Tfue not being on his following list, the Fortnite player’s Tweet quickly got his attention.

Tfue wasn’t done there however, as he had a follow-up request – this time much more ambitious than helping him get better internet.

He asked Musk if he had any spare “unusable first stage rockets” just lying around, that Tenney might be able to buy for his warehouse, presumably for entertainment purposes.

Elon Musk hasn’t responded publicly to Tfue’s request, and it also appears that he is still having internet issues too – but at least he has a Tesla now.

YouTube star and beauty guru James Charles may have just teased one of the biggest games of Among Us we’ve seen yet, tagging massively popular personalities like Corpse Husband, Dream, and many more.

InnerSloth’s whodunnit-style game took over the entire internet last year — two years after its initial release — due to its group-based gameplay and hilarious moments that can arise at any time as players attempt to determine the impostor in their midst.

In that timeframe, quite a few content creators also rose to prominence in part because of their hilarious Among Us playthroughs, with the likes of Corpse Husband and more gaining millions of subscribers.

Since then, internet personalities from the “mainstream” have even jumped in on the trend, as seen when TikTok star Addison Rae tried her hand at the game with Dream and Quackity.

James Charles teases among us lobby
Innersloth’s viral video game has become a viral internet sensation two years after its initial release.

Now, makeup mogul James Charles is getting in on the hype, and he’s bringing some of the game’s most popular players along with him for a huge lobby that will undoubtedly score an impressive amount of viewers.

On February 25, James Charles sent out a surprising tweet that tagged some of Among Us’s biggest names: Dream, Corpse Husband, GeorgeNotFound, Valkyrae, Pokimane, Disguised Toast, Sykkuno, TommyInnit, Quackity, and Karl Jacobs, to be exact.

“Y’all ready for tomorrow?” he asked — and while it’s not 100% certain that an Among Us lobby is exactly what he’s got in mind for February 26, it certainly seems to be that way, considering the sheer number of players he tagged who have quite a history with the game.

At the time of writing, Charles’ tweet has certainly amped up the hype, garnering over 32k likes and counting as more and more of the tagged players chime in.

Charles himself has a fairly decent Among Us track record of sorts, having played an “IRL” version of the game with fellow YouTube stars before. That being said, these players could be grouping up for something similar, although considering the current health crisis, a virtual Among Us lobby seems more probable.

There’s no set time for their broadcast just yet, but it’s certainly worth keeping an eye on for those interested in seeing what sort of antics this star-studded squad will get into in just 24 hours’ time.
