Former professional Counter-Strike player turned top PUBG streamer Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek has always been known for his flashy plays, and this ridiculous clip is the perfect example.

After officially announcing retirement earlier this year and departing Cloud9, the organization where he spent almost all of his playing career, Shroud has been ramping up his streaming output.

He is often found playing popular battle royale game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), and regularly attracts over 20,000 concurrent viewers at any time.

But what makes Shroud so entertaining is not just his professional level of skill in game, but also his blasé attitude towards the opponents who simply cannot match him.

For example this incredible clip, the epitome of Shroud’s abilities, as he is forced to put stop mid-mouthful when an enemy starts taking shots.

Ever calm under pressure, Shroud puts his fork down and with one impeccable shot puts an end to the disruption. If you are a fan of professional CS:GO player Tarik “Tarik” Celik, this kind of clip might remind you of something.

The clip is of course reminiscent of Shroud’s former Cloud9 teammate Tarik, whose four kills on Counter-Strike while eating a bowl of cereal has become notorious online.

Despite no longer playing professional Counter-Strike, Shroud has no doubt done his former teammate proud with this homage moment.

Joe Rogan has been forced to cancel the next week of guests lined up for his podcast, including superstar Kanye West, after one of the host’s staff member returned a positive test result meaning the team must now isolate.

The Joe Rogan Experience is one of the most popular podcasts in the world listened to by millions of people each week, but the next slate of episodes has hit a major snag.

On Oct. 19, Rogan announced on Instagram that the show would be cancelling all the podcasts for the upcoming week after Jamie Vernon, the producer of the show, tested positive forcing the rest of the cast to self-isolate.

“Young Jamie Vernon tested positive today. I tested negative, the rest of the staff tested negative, but Jamie tested positive,” Rogan revealed in the video. “He thought he had a sinus infection or allergies. The episodes that aired last week we had previously recorded so I hadn’t seen Jamie in about nine days.”

Despite testing positive the former Fear-Factor host assured everyone his tech wizard was on the mend, but added he and the rest of his staff would be cancelling shows for safety reasons for the next week.

“So, we cancelled all the shows. We’re happy he has a mild case, but we cancelled all the shows. I’m keeping away from everybody and testing myself and the staff everyday until we’re in the clear, there’s nothing we can do,” the podcaster added. “I won’t know when we’ll do them [podcasts] again until we get a clear from the doctor. I think it’s ten days and three negative test results in a row.”

Sadly, this means fans will miss out on the highly-anticipated show featuring Kanye West, who was scheduled as a guest for the Friday, October 23 program.

Rogan didn’t completely rule out having the podcast in some form or another though, adding that he was looking into doing shows remotely or some shows with a substitute producer (which he wasn’t too keen on).

After offering apologies to all of the guests and fans affected by the news, the host summed it up as a “f***ed up situation,” but it will be interesting to see how they actually go about producing the show, and if they can still get Yeezy on.
