Movie icon Samuel L. Jackson has announced he is “joining” Team SoloMid, alongside Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani for E3 2019, calling his announcement a ‘Drama Alert’ for KEEMSTAR.

With esports rising into the popular culture and becoming mainstream, it’s becoming less of a shock to see more collaborations between celebrities and esports teams and players.

With notable names such as Drake and Michael Jordan even investing in their own esports teams, it was only a matter of time before popular actors were next among the many to get involved.

YouTube/TSM MythTSM Myth has enjoyed massive success as a streamer on Twitch since the release of Fortnite.

Samuel L. Jackson, who is one of the most iconic actors of all time, teamed up with Myth to release a short teaser for the pair’s collaboration at E3 2019.

The teaser featured Jackson playing as his character in his upcoming movie, “Shaft” and he even called out YouTuber and Drama Alert host KEEMSTAR when announcing he would be partnering up with Myth, saying:

“Listen up motherf*ckers! Shaft here with a drama alert for KEEMSTAR, I’m now signed to TSM and this is my new partner, Myth.”

Myth announced that the pair would be taking part in their first match on the official E3 YouTube channel at 1pm Eastern Time, although the details of what exactly they will be getting up to remains unclear.

It’s unlikely that Samuel L. Jackson is actually joining the TSM organization, as this is expected to be a short term collaboration between the pair for the promotion of his latest movie.

Regardless, many fans are hoping to see more collaborations between the pair in future, and E3 2019 will be ripe for more celebrities to enter the space and get involved with esports and gaming.

Fortnite is also hosting its celebrity Pro-Am tournament at the convention, where popular streamers and YouTubers will team up with famous athletes, musicians, actors and more to compete for charity.

Korean streamer HAchubby was shocked after she got a huge surprise on her birthday from her dedicated fans.

HAchubby shares her content to a multinational fanbase of over 200,000 on Twitch. She is most often found streaming IRL, collaborating with other streamers, as well as sometimes showcasing her piano skills.

She has several super loyal fans who make frequent appearances online whenever she streams. Just last month she met a Twitch fan in one of her IRL streams, only for him to reveal himself as her “number one VIP” and a known member of her community.

In another stream, a fan ‘stream sniped’ her. He approached her to give her a pizza box as a gift, and to HAchubby’s surprise the box contained a printed out image of the iconic Twitch “Jebaited” emote.

HAchubby has dedicated fans that often approach her IRL

While she is used to interactions from her dedicated fans IRL, the last thing the streamer expected was for them all to come together to thank her for her content on her birthday.

On Sunday, November 29 HAchubby’s stream was hijacked by her viewers who sent her a video, with a pink background perfectly matching her hair color, wishing her a “Happy Birthday from all of chat.” The voiceover in the video said, “on this momentous occasion we bring you the event of a lifetime for the worldwide Twitch sensation HAchubby. Get your PepeDs ready!”

The rest of the video featured an emotional montage of some of HAchubby’s best moments and featured a clip of her introducing herself. The video also showed an adorable animation showcasing the impact that the streamer has had on a global scale.

HAchubby was confused at first, only managing to say an emotional “what?” in response, but as the video continued she looked tearful while viewers spammed the chat with birthday wishes.

As the streamer continues to make her multinational fanbase smile on a daily basis, it’s heartwarming to know that they can make her smile too.
