Retired Overwatch pro turned Twitch streamer Daniel ‘Dafran’ Francesca amazed his viewers with an incredible clutch play to end a round so he could get his pizza in time.

During a March 30 stream, Dafran was waiting for his pizza delivery to show up and was right in the process of ending an Overwatch match. While his team was up 3-1 on Hollywood having already attacked, anyone who has played Blizzard’s hero-based DPS knows that rounds aren’t ever over until they’re over.

With thirty seconds remaining in the enemy team’s attacking phase, enough for a final team fight to take place, Dafran’s food arrived.

Dafran got some help from his supports.

“Oh, pizza’s here!” the Pharah player cried. He then proceeded to tell in Danish, seemingly alerting the delivery driver that he would be right there.

Thinking quickly, the DPS prodigy eliminated the opposing Ana before calling for his own healer to give him a Nano Boost to amplify his damage by a whopping fifty perfect.

“Nano me!” he exclaimed. “Nano me! I have to kill them now! I have to kill them! Nano me now!”

With that, the healer gave Dafran the Ultimate and he unleashed his Rocket Barrage on the attackers, scoring two kills and preventing them from regrouping for a proper fight.

To end things, he nailed a direct hit onto the enemy Wrecking Ball with help from a Mercy damage boost in addition to the Nano major damage to the stalling hamster hero, scoring the elimination onto him.

“Be right back,” he told his team, landing on the high ground.

Luckily, the Danish streamer’s team picked up a couple of frags on the stragglers to earn the well-earned win. Right when Dafran returned, he saw the victory screen, which prompted a laugh from the former pro. “Oh, perfect. We won, dude.”

While Francesca did get Play of the Game, it was for an earlier portion of the match and not his endgame heroics.

It’s unclear if the pizza tasted as good as the victory, but it just goes to show that when he’s pressed for time, Dafran can make magic happen in Overwatch.

Josh Richards reacts to ex Nessa Barrett coming out as bisexual

TikTok star Nessa Barrett has come out as bisexual, leading to a humorously supportive reaction from her sort-of ex-boyfriend and fellow influencer Josh Richards.

Nessa Barrett is a massively popular TikToker, amassing over 12.7 million followers on the viral video app for her unique style and original music — which has also earned her a whopping 532,000 YouTube subscribers.

However, Barrett has also borne the brunt of intense internet criticism and controversy in the past, even receiving death threats after critics accused her of “copying” Madison Beer’s musical style.

Despite the confusing amount of hatred against her from online trolls, the singer/influencer has been met with incredible positivity after coming out as bisexual in a TikTok on November 23.

“Yes, this is me coming out as bi,” she captioned the video. “Lol yup, scary.” At the time of writing, Nessa seems to have changed the video’s caption.

While her comments section is filled with fans showing their support for the TikToker in wake of her soul-baring announcement, it’s her ex-boyfriend’s reaction that has viewers turning their heads in curiosity.

During a December 2 episode of the BFF’s podcast, Josh Richards explained that he’s actually known about Nessa’s orientation for a year now, but didn’t say anything until she was ready to divulge the information on her own terms.

“I’ve known that for a while,” he admitted. “Like, for a year. But she just wasn’t public about it and didn’t want to tell people. And then I guess one day she was like, ‘Hey, I wanna tell people.’”

(Topic begins at 0:50)

“She literally went into [my] bathroom, filmed the video, came out, and was like, ‘I’m about to post this,’” he continued. “I was like, ‘Hey. Congrats!’ And then she was like, ‘Yeah!’ And that was it. I already knew about it, so it wasn’t a huge surprise to me when she was doing it.”

That’s not all; it looks like Richards is a little nervous about the “competition” in wake of her announcement, humorously revealing that he is still in the runnings for Nessa’s affections despite their ambiguous split amid the drama this summer.

“It’s just bringing more competition to the table for me,” he joked. “I don’t know if I’m like, ‘Dope,’ or if I’m like, ‘I’m kinda a little jealous here!’”

In spite of their breakup, it definitely seems like something is going on between these two — but for now, it looks like fans are focusing on supporting Nessa after her big reveal.
