Communication with teammates might be one of the most important things in Overwatch, and streamer Jarrod ‘Frogger’ Meredith has provided an excellent example of how players can make sure their team is listening.
One of the biggest complaints of Overwatch players is that their teams don’t seem to get in voice chat or communicate at all. Meaning any kind of team play or callouts immediately go out the window.
That’s where Frogger’s ingenious idea comes in.
Using the power of song and dance, he shows how to make sure teammates are tuned in and listening.
In the clip Frogger posted to Twitter, his team is getting ready in the first attacking spawn of Numbani when he tells them “Alright, listen to me,” before playing a remix of the Cha-Cha Slide.
As the song plays, Frogger and his team dance along with some pretty impressive coordination that shows his teammates are listening, even if they’re not in voice chat.
“Watch as I demonstrate how to ALWAYS make your team listen to your calls,” Frogger added with the video on Twitter. “THIS WILL GIVE YOU WINS 100% OF THE TIME AND OUTBACK STEAKHOUSE ACCESS.”

Frogger is completely right, team building is incredibly important in the current state of Overwatch and this is a really great, hilarious way to make sure your team is locked in.
It was a brilliant song choice as well, because the Cha-Cha slide is immediately recognizable to any individual who has ever attended a middle school dance.
The fact that Frogger, if you couldn’t tell by his name, is a Lucio player puts the cherry on top for this hilarious clip.
