When Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar was asked the question about whether or not he liked the idea of an “announced” battle royale mode for Sea of Thieves, his reaction is just brilliant.
After weeks of the popular streamer terrorizing players on the popular pirate game, he was finally on the receiving end of a stunt himself when a message from the chat led him to believe that a new mode was coming to the game.
Thinking that he was clicking an announcement link from Microsoft Studios, he said: “Oh no”. But, what he found was not an announcement at all and he seemed very pleased about it, to say the least.
Having clicked the link, the chat hilariously directed him to video of ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ by Rick Astley.
“Oh, thank you fucking God” he said before breaking into laughter. “I have never been so happy to get rick rolled!”
The prank was complete and Summit looked more than happy that it was just that – a prank.
It’s fair to say that he doesn’t seem keen about the idea of Sea of Thieves jumping on the battle royale bandwagon and there’s nothing to suggest that Microsoft Studios will be going in that direction any time soon.
Summit has been involved in many incredible Sea of Thieves heists in recent weeks, with one hilarious clip showing that he had escaped with a whole crew’s loot completely unseen and unscathed, using just a rowboat at the back of their Galleon.
