PewDiePie has delved into the world esports interviews and handshakes – where there is no shortage of awkward encounters, reacting to the most cringeworthy moments competitive gaming has to offer.

Esports is one of the fastest growing entertainment industries in the world currently, as it pits the best competitive gamers against one in other for massive and always increasing prize pools and acclaim.

But, along with the fascinating entertainment and competitive atmosphere, esports has always had its own quirks, which in many ways have likely aided in its success, but are funny to react to nonetheless.

PewDiePie’s cringe compilations from the E3 gaming convention are some of his most popular videos, so he has turned to esports next, finding some of the most infamous ‘hand-shake’ moments from down the years.

He is also himself known to have less than competent hand shaking ability himself, as he admits in the video, but nothing is quite as bad as handshakes in esports.

My favorite thing about esports, isn’t how good they are at video games, it’s how bad they are at human interactions, because they’re always forced to put that on the test as well. 

Any time they go against each other, they have to finish off with some form of human interaction – whether it’s handshake, bro fist, high-five or hugging. 

But, rarely it ends well and it leaves us with an infinite source of great cringe material.

The video features some of esports biggest stars too, from former OpTic Gaming teammates Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag and Ian “Crimsix” Porter, to former professional Overwatch player, Brandon “Seagull” Larned.

Perhaps the best moments however, are those during interviews with players, one of which features Seagull, and another with CS:GO presenter Pala.

But it’s all fun and games, and even the esports players themselves can poke fun. The opening sequence features a ‘handshake fail’ montage put together by UK esports organizer Gfinity themselves.

And OpTic’s Crimsix wasn’t too upset about his cameo appearance.

TikTok star Charli D’Amelio had her Spotify account hacked as a number of playlist names were used to troll her.

A number of new online stars have been born out of TikTok, but there’s none more popular than Charli D’Amelio. The 16-year-old is by far and away the most followed TikToker around, and has grown her followings elsewhere on social media.

However, just like anyone with a big following on the internet, she has become a target for hackers trying to get into her different social media accounts. 

Previously, she had her VSCO account hacked and even deleted her Instagram briefly, but this time, trolls successfully turned their attention onto her Spotify account and left some interestingly named playlists.

Charli is by and far away the most popular TikToker.

The TikTok star flagged that her Spotify account had been hacked late in the day on October 25, asking her Twitter followers why the hack had happened. Though, she didn’t get any real answers on that.

Instead, her replies were filled with pictures from fans showing that they could see the new playlist names that had cropped under her account.

These included ones like ‘HACKED LMAOOO’ that bragged of the hack, while others like ‘I LOVE BRYCE HALL, ‘hacked by lilhuddy XOXO,’ and ‘ADDISON RAE IS THE BEST X’ took a few shots at her personal life. Though, there were also political messages like ‘BIDEN 2020.’

The playlists weren’t live for too long, however, as they’ve since been deleted. Charli’s account now only shows her playlists that were there before the hack.

Seeing as Charli managed to get things sorted, she’s likely changed her password but given that hackers have been able to get into her Spotify account, some might decide to take it further and get into her Twitter or TikTok profile. So, she might have to be on high alert moving forward.
