TikTok star Addison Rae got the surprise of a lifetime after meeting up with none other than skateboarding legend Tony Hawk, who gifted her a special board that comes with a surprising benefit.

It’s not every day that Addison Rae — a TikToker and internet personality with over 68 million followers — is starstruck.

Considering that fact that she rubs elbows with the likes of Kourtney Kardashian on a near-daily basis, it must be hard to impress one of the social media sphere’s biggest celebrities — but it turns out, there is one name in particular that can leave her speechless.

In a November 9 YouTube video, Rae was blindsided by an unexpected meeting with Tony Hawk, who taught her a few tips and tricks in an indoor skating park (and yes, she did recognize him instantly, contrary to what many viral internet experiences with the skater will have fans believe).

However, that was far from the highlight of their skating session; Hawk even presented Addison Rae with a custom skateboard from Chipotle, which, of course, featured a humorous slogan that included her viral “bad bleep” meme.

The skateboard in question acts as a kind of token in place of the franchise’s Celebrity Burrito Card, which is a gift card given to select celebrities that allows them to score one free burrito daily. How long this opportunity lasts is up in the air; some sources claim the free burritos are for life, while others state that celebs can only take advantage of the card for a year.

Needless to say, it looks like Rae got more than free burritos — the star even received her own skateboard to commemorate the occasion, as well as a once-in-a-lifetime training session with Tony Hawk, who had his own compliments to give to the social media celebrity.

“I think it’s really cool that you’re introducing skateboarding to the new generation,” Hawk said of Rae’s efforts. “Especially girls, ‘cause it is the great equalizer. It’s all-inclusive. I feel like, if kids can just see how fun it is and what it can do for them, they’ll want to do it. I feel like you’re really promoting that well.”

Although it’s hard to live up to Tony Hawk’s own skateboarding prowess, receiving such a compliment from one of the sport’s biggest names is nothing to sneeze at, and it looks like Rae will continue to carry the skating torch into her career as a major influencer.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands finally arrived on November 23 and while one Twitch streamer drove home far too fast to load it up with friends, the Police officer who stopped them completely understood. 

As many members of the community will know, the game’s latest expansion will bring together loads of new and returning players for an all-new story. There’s Covenants to mess around with, new quests to try out, and many will have been rushing home to play it after work.

Though, speeding is against the highway code and by driving too fast you are putting others in danger – which meant one streamer was unfortunately told to pull over by the Cops.

Usually, this would lead to a speeding ticket, but after explaining their reason for going too fast – to get home and throw Shadowlands on – the officer came in clutch and decided to turn a blind eye in what was quite a remarkable story.

Shadowlands is finally here and some are getting a bit to exicted.

Shadowlands saves Twitch streamer a speeding ticket

On release day, streamer bbnogames was already playing Shadowlands when his friend called, who presumably also streams with him.

They said: “Bro, hahaha. The Cop was like ‘yo, you know how fast you were going?’ I’m like dude I’m so sorry, this game is dropping soon, all my friends are waiting for me.

“He’s like ‘Shadowlands?’ And I’m like yeah, and he’s like OK go!”

 

After that, he said he was just five minutes away and eventually joined the team playing online. After that remarkable exchange with the Police officer, things went without a hitch, when really he could have been left with a hefty ticket to pay for his troubles.

Instead, they were able to link up together later in the night and jump into World of Warcraft’s latest expansion. Maybe next time, he won’t be so lucky.
