Twitch to Mixer, explained why he always knew Red Dead Redemption 2 was coming to PC in a livestream on November 4.

Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has become one of the most iconic names in streaming, mainly due to his impeccable mechanical skills in pretty much any game he can get his hands on.

This doesn’t mean he’s limited to his preferred FPS genre, though, as he discussed his excitement for the impending release of Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC – and how he “told everyone it was going to happen.”

Shroud/TwitterShroud made the move from Twitch to Mixer at the end of October 2019

“I’m so excited, man,” he said. “I’m so excited, I told everybody ‘it’s gonna happen’, and nobody believed me! I’m like, ‘No, it will!’”

He continued, “Do you know how stupid they would be if they didn’t do that? That’s free money. The company, they’re trying to make cashola, they’re going to have to do it.”

Timestamp at 33:20 for mobile users.

Red Dead Redemption 2 originally launched in October 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with players and critics alike absolutely loving the game that followed one of the most successful titles in history with the original Red Dead.

With the Windows launch on the horizon, shroud and his PC-playing peers are, justifiably, very excited at being able to play the game at peak performance and opening up to a whole new playerbase.

It’s likely we’ll see shroud playing Red Dead Redemption 2 at some point after its November 5 PC launch date, and we’ll probably see a huge influx of other streamers playing it as the hype is still very much alive.

Former Vine star reveals truth behind iconic “Adam” meme

Former Vine star Patrick Perkins has cleared up a myth about an iconic meme years after it first took the internet by storm.

While Vine shuffled its mortal coil in 2016, many of its biggest stars have carried on with short-form comedy on YouTube and now TikTok, including Lele Pons, Liza Koshy, and David Dobrik.

Even now, these short clip compilations still get millions of views on YouTube, and there are still multiple Instagram and Twitter accounts dedicated to them. Several vines have carried on their internet life as memes or gifs and have even been pasted onto merchandise.

The vine in question shows a blonde teenager in glasses blowing a smoke circle using a vape on a desk when the person carrying the camera blows it away. The teen turns to the camera and exasperatedly says “Adam!.”

Adam and Patrick starred in several iconic vines.

Now the star himself has come onto TikTok to confirm some lore surrounding him and his twin brother, which has baffled thousands who never knew the truth.

Another iconic and highly quotable vine involving one of the twins shows them walking into his bathroom in just a pair of boxers saying: “Hi, welcome to chillis.” In another, one of the twins begs viewers to stop comparing him to Chicken Little.

To most people, they look like the exact same person.

However, Patrick has explained in a viral TikTok that they’re actually identical twins. Patrick was the star of the vape video, while the other twin is Adam and the star of the Chilli’s vine. He also showed a picture of them together “since a lot of people don’t believe that there are actually two of us.”

Patrick also posted the video to Twitter and users were bowled over by the new information. One person wrote, “I feel like a different person for knowing this,” while another added, “world-shattering revelations are sometimes just small clarifications I guess.”

In less than 24 hours, Patrick’s tweet has amassed 4,000 likes and continues to grow, bringing back a sense of nostalgia for many and clearing up a long-standing internet myth.
