With the Valorant beta beginning April 7, Dr Disrespect unveiled what appeared to be a cool new skin that would be available for anyone who subscribed to his Twitch channel. Unfortunately, it was just a prank, but it had a lot of people fooled.

The “skin” itself would likely have been for the Russian sniper agent Sova, as the Doc version gave the character some of the streamer’s trademark attire.

For instance, the Two-Time’s logo could be seen placed on Sova’s shoulder area and knee. Additionally, the character dons Dr Disrespect’s flashy glasses, headset and mullet to complete the ensemble.

Taking to Twitter, Doc claimed that the exclusive skin would be available to anyone who subscribes to The Champions Club, leaving many thinking they could jump into the arena looking just like him when Valorant comes out.

During his April 1 stream, the entertainer kept the joke rolling. “Ladies and gentleman, an exclusive Doc Valorant skin, available to you on day one if you subscribe to my channel,” he said.

“And no, it has nothing to do with April first. Nothing at all,” he grinned sarcastically.

Amusingly, even some Riot Games employees seemed to believe the announcement. League of Legends Communications Lead Ryan Rigney revealed people were talking about it in a conference call.

“Wait… is this real…” Rigney claimed to have said during the call. He then had to straight-up confirm that the skin was just an April Fool’s joke.

“It isn’t, but holy hell it looks good,” he added in parenthesis.

While the skin may not be real, that doesn’t mean that people don’t want it to be. “If games actually used your skins in-game they would be so damn cool,” Apex Legends pro Ryan ‘Meerko’ Amato said.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
