Valorant fans mock Mark Wahlberg movie after viral scene with Valkyrae & iiTzTimmy
Valorant fans are mocking a new Mark Wahlberg movie after a scene featuring Valkyrae and iiTzTimmy goes viral.
It may not seem like it, but Valorant has become a true global phenomenon. Having become popular enough to be featured in a Mark Wahlberg comedy film and including some of the game’s biggest streamers.
Earlier this week, an action comedy film starring Wahlberg named The Family Plan was released on Apple TV+, much to the disinterest of the Valorant world. But they should’ve paid more attention to it, as it features Valkyrae and iTizTimmy, alongside some pro Valorant players.
According to the official synopsis, the film is about “a former top assassin living incognito as a suburban dad must take his unsuspecting family on the run when his past catches up to him.”
But a subplot to the main story is of Wahlberg’s character’s son, Kyle “Kyllboi” Morgan, played by Van Crosby, who is also an aspiring Valorant pro and sees his story come to a climax when he gets drafted into a pro team at a LAN match in Las Vegas.
However, much of the Valorant world didn’t know this existed, until, Daniel J. Colette, a writer and producer for Riot, showed the clip of Kyllboi seemingly clutching up for his team, which went viral.
And it was only a matter of time until fans pointed out the many oddities in the clip. For one, many pointed out the extremely odd Agent comps for Breeze, with Team Valkyrae playing Chamber, Cypher, Harbor, Fade, and Sage, a comp nobody should play.
“He must be a pro player in a universe where everyone playing Valorant is a traffic cone,” wrote a commentor on Collette’s tweet. “Damn put me in that lobby I drop 30 (I’m horrible at the game),” wrote another.
But it seems the film did try to keep its Valorant segment as realistic as possible, as Team Liquid’s Mistic revealed he consulted on the Valorant and Twitch side of the film.
“I did the overseeing of the Valorant and Twitch content, so if anything is wrong you can blame me,” Mistic said in a quote retweet to Dexerto’s tweet on the film.
