Streaming stars Sykkuno and Corpse Husband pulled off an absolutely brilliant and 1000 IQ play in Among Us, getting everybody to drink so they could get kills undetected. 

In mid-2020, Among Us took over the internet after streamers flocked to it. As a result, Innersloth’s social deduction game has given us plenty of memorable moments. 

We’ve seen players come up with ridiculous ways to blame others for kills, pull off dangerous vent moves to go on a kill streak of their own, as well as everything in-between. 

Some streamers moved away from the game as others, like Rust, became a bit more popular, but a group including Sykkuno, Corpse Husband, Valkyrae, Disguised Toast, and others have made a return – and already given us some more memorable moments.

Among Us continues to be a popular game amongst streamers.

One such brilliant moment came during their January 30 session, where the group decided to add a little twist to proceedings by playing while drinking. 

With everyone getting into the swing of things and taking drinks at different moments, Corpse and Sykkuno used it to their advantage. “Alright, everybody take a drink”, said Corpse as the remaining players were bunched up and stood on top of each other. 

In doing so, the players left themselves vulnerable to the two imposters. Corpse and Sykkuno quickly struck with a brilliant double kill, ending the game, and giving themselves the win.

“We did it Corpse! We did it!” shouted Sykkuno, laughing about how they’d managed to pull off such a dastardly double kill.

“Wow!” some of the streamers said upon losing. “I can’t believe this. I can’t believe you guys just did that.” 

Obviously, it helps when everyone has had a few drinks and are going along with the shenanigans of standing together, but if it wasn’t well-timed, the pair would have been caught out and lost. So, they have to be commended for their genius plan.

Rachel ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter could be on track for one of the biggest gaming livestreams in history, as the 100 Thieves star has teased a potential Among Us session with Ariana Grande.

Hot off the heels of becoming the world’s most watched female streamer in 2020, the new year is shaping up to be even bigger for Valkyrae. Partway through a February 10 broadcast, the YouTube sensation teased a huge Among Us stream that could be in the pipeline.

Among Us took the internet by storm in the latter half of 2020, and no one capitalized on the trend quite like Valkyrae. The biggest gaming personalities crossed over with countless mainstream celebs to make the murder mystery title one of the biggest games of all time.

Now, the 29-year old YouTube streamer is putting plans into motion for one of the biggest crossovers yet. In 2021, it’s “very possible” that we see Valkyrae streaming Among Us with Ariana Grande.

When a fan posed the question during her latest stream, Valkyrae initially brushed it off. Could she ever convince the singer to join an Among Us session? “She’s out of my league,” Valkyrae responded. “She is so far beyond… I won’t be able to reach her.”

While she might not have a direct line of contact, thanks to her connections at 100 Thieves, the idea has already been pitched. “She knows that we want to play Among Us,” Valkyrae confirmed.

“100 Thieves got Scooter Braun to talk to her about it. It’s just gonna take a million years or it’s not gonna happen.” Given Grande is one of the world’s biggest celebrities, organizing such a groundbreaking event won’t happen overnight – but Valkyrae teased that it certainly could come to fruition.

“It’s kinda cool knowing that there is a slim chance that she could. It’s a very slim chance,” she added, “but it’s possible.”

100 Thieves have a bigger history with Grande than first meets the eye; Valkyrae even met the singer backstage in 2019, thanks to their connections. Meanwhile, Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop interacted with her a great deal on the back of a viral video that same year.

Thus far, there’s no date set in stone and there’s no confirmation it will go ahead – though the door appears to be wide open for an eventual Among Us collaboration between Grande and Valkyrae.
