Twitch streamer Daniel ‘Dafran’ Francesca ran into what could be the best duo in all of Overwatch, but for completely different reasons than you may expect.

While queuing for a game, the former Overwatch League star joined a custom skirmish to wait. He ended up being placed on the Paris map where two other players were playing the in-game piano.

Paris is one of the game’s most hated maps due to how it overwhelmingly favors the defenders, but it does have some cool easter eggs such as a fully working piano that people can play by hitting keys.

The Symmetra duo immediately impressed the Danish damage player by covering the Super Mario theme song. The fact that there were two people capable of using the in-game piano so well blew the streamer away.

“This guy is giving piano lessons in Overwatch, dude,” he laughed. “Piano gang.”

One of the best highlights came a few moments later when one of the Symmetras change to a Genji for one of the most outrageous covers of the night. After jumping up to the piano, the cyborg ninja began using his alternate fire to hit keys and played Still D.r.e by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.

The Tracer legend started cracking up at the music, still impressed that such a performance was even possible in Overwatch.

Finally, the duo had one final act up their sleeves when they performed Dovahkiin from Skyrim. With both Symmetras playing the track, it was a legendary sight to behold and probably the peak piano experience the Blizzard developers wanted when they added the musical instrument to the game.

“This is insane,” Francesca said before asking the duo to try their luck at playing Toss a Coin to Your Witcher, only for one of the pianists to use the DPS hero’s “I don’t think so” voice line.

Unfortunately for Dafran, he was put in a game before he could continue listening to more amazing music.

Regardless, it was one of the most unique Overwatch experiences in quite some time, and hopefully the two artists can continue to amaze with their musical talents.


Floyd Mayweather calls out Logan Paul as fight rumors intensify

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather has officially called out YouTuber Logan Paul, warranting a confident response from the social media star, as things heat up in relation to their rumored fight.

Back in September, reports started to come out that the unlikely pairing would face off in the ring at some point, with Logan clearly not scared off by Floyd’s incredible 50-0 unbeaten record.

On September 16, former NFL kicker Pat McAfee reported that “a contract has been signed” for an exhibition match between the two though, since then, there has been little more said in regards to the fight.

That was until the early hours of the morning on Thursday, November 19, when Floyd Mayweather tagged Logan in a tweet, directly calling him out in response to the YouTuber’s boasts that he could beat Floyd.

“These YouTube girls better find some Barbie dolls to play with ‘cause I’m not the one for the kid games,” Mayweather said. “3 years ago a fighter from the UFC said my name and I had to put a muzzle on that b**ch. @LoganPaul can get the same treatment before I go conquer Japan again.”

While a tweet like this would usually intimidate possible opponents, or just about anyone else in the world, Logan wasn’t phased at all.

He simply made a very bold prediction for the fight, saying “50-1,” implying he plans to end Floyd’s incredible unbeaten streak.

Like Floyd said, though, the last person to challenge him was Conor McGregor, one of the most successful fighters in the UFC, and even he looked unlikely throughout the duration of the fight to even hope for a win.

Just as everything was going quiet on the fight front between these two, fans will welcome the trash talk going on, and definitely suggests that things are heating up, so maybe fans will have more to look forward to in the near future.
