Popular streamer Benjamin ‘DrLupo’ Lupo has revealed the secret behind his Fortnite skills – and no, it’s not the Boombox.
Dr Lupo uploaded a humorous video on January 19 that revealed the real reason for his dexterity in the game, where he attributed his success toward a popular brand of stuffed cookie – the Oreo.
Lupo combined two Oreos to make one, giant Oreo (or perhaps indulged in the new ‘Most Stuf’ Oreos), downing his creation in one bite. The snack must have contained some special power, as he went on to take a serious slew of dubs shortly thereafter.
It looks like fans can rest easy, knowing that the secret formula for Fortnite success lies in one of America’s best-selling cookie brands – or maybe it was just the sugar rush that boosted Dr Lupo to the top.
DrLupo’s latest, hilarious video follows his major fundraiser for St. Jude’s Children’s’ Research Hospital in late December of 2018. The streamer managed to raise a whopping one million dollars for the charity throughout the year, raising $356,000 at Florida’s GuardianCon.

By December 21, the streamer had managed to increase that amount to $730,000, and ended his 24-hour charity livestream on December 22 by meeting his lofty goal of one million dollars.
DrLupo is known for his live streams and Fortnite gameplay, boasting nearly three million followers on Twitch and over one million subscribers on his YouTube channel. With his popularity, it would come as no surprise if fans started eating more Oreos before the drop into the map – say, when’s that Oreo sponsorship incoming?
