Fortnite Battle Royale World Cup solos champion Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf took the headquarters of Overwatch League team Los Angeles Gladiators in a hilarious parody of ESPN’s ‘This is SportsCenter’ commercials.

Viewers of ESPN will know the iconic This is SportsCenter ads, which feature stars from the NFL, NBA, and MLB touring through the ESPN offices and partaking in random day-to-day activities as if they worked there.

Now, esports has gotten its own version, involving both the Gladiators and Sentinels, two teams that are under the P1 Esports banner

In a video shared on September 10, the Overwatch team poked fun at their Fortnite compatriots, saying “the Sentinels won the World Cup and now they think they run the office.”

Bugha took over the streaming computer in the offices while Gladiators flex João Pedro ‘Hydration’ Goes Telles watched on, begging to go live. The Fortnite superstar didn’t budge, leaving Hydration computer-less and on the hunt for a snack.

Players like Owen ‘Animal’ Wright, Benjamin ‘BigGoose’ Isohanni, and Gye ‘rOar’ Chang-hoon all made cameos on Hydration’s tour of the offices, doing completely random things.

There was even a small shoutout to Gladiators Legion off-tank player and popular Twitch personality Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel, with balloons hanging in the back of the frame behind BigGoose spelling out his name.

Epic GamesBugha won $3 million at the Fortnite World Cup.

The skit featured a crossover between Fortnite and Overwatch too, as the Gladiators were sharing shields around with the Sentinels, while Animal looked to break down the kitchen wall with a Fortnite Pickaxe.

In the end, Hydration only ended up getting a drink, because everyone else had polished off the pizza. Looking dejected, the star player went back towards the streaming room, waiting for Bugha’s 10 minutes to finally be up.

This parody isn’t the first SportsCenter-inspired video the OWL team has done, as they have an entire series of clips based on having their players do mundane work around the headquarters, such as the one below.

However, in the P1 Esports headquarters, everyone knows who is the real boss. 

Bugha has brought fame and fortune to the Sentinels brand after finishing in first place of the Solos tournament at the $30 million Fortnite World Cup in July, securing a whopping $3 million prize and unprecedented glory.

NELK Boys’ SteveWillDoIt surprises Kyle with super rare $135k Audi RS7

The NELK Boys’ might be best known for their crazy party antics, but SteveWillDoIt has been on an insane charitable spree recently, topping it off by buying NELK co-founder Kyle Forgeard an incredibly rare Audi RS7.

Earlier in October, Steve set up a homeless man with a whole new life: a new job, an apartment and $25,000 in the bank, hoping to truly turn his life around.

Now, Steve is trying to thank Kyle for bringing him into NELK and giving him the platform to make himself a success, and has done so in one of the most extravagant ways possible.

Referring to himself as the “cool Mr Beast,” Steve and the whole NELK team managed to keep the secret of his gift for a month — and it was definitely worth it.

The NELK Boys are most commonly known for their wild lifestyle.

After arriving back in Orlando, Florida, Steve tells Kyle that he’s got a “very cool” rental car that he can drive from the airport.

Obviously, at first Kyle was confused about what it could be, perhaps a bit cautious. But, when they got outside and Kyle saw his “dream car,” which is currently only one of two of its kind in the US, he assumed Steve had hired the 2021 Audi RS7 for a test drive for him.

Instead, after one of the women there congratulated him, it was revealed that Steve had actually paid for the car, in cash and upfront, for Kyle to keep as his own — only his second car since an old Mazda he used to own.

It definitely sounds like Steve had to pull some strings to make it happen. He was originally searching for a 2020 Audi RS7, knowing that it was Kyle’s dream car, but the opportunity to pick up a 2021 model arrived and he couldn’t pass it up, paying for the car there and then when it was available.

With only two currently in the US, it would be interesting to see who has the other one. It’s almost funny to think that one of them belongs to a YouTube prankster who just likes to make crazy videos for his fans.
