I’ve rewatched this video several times and I still can’t decide whether it’s incredibly clever or 90’s level of awkward. Either way, it’s definitely esports.
Part and parcel of competitive video games is the trash talking. And ahead of their semi-final clash in the upper echelon of European League of Legends competition, that’s what G2 Esports has done.
It’s a video where they tear up, stomp, and insinuate peeing on their opponents.
It’s not the first time G2 has played it up for the camera. Before the most recent split began, the team published a video showing players waving dollar bills and wearing fake golden chains. It’s part of their shtick.
It’s esports. And it’s also just a bit weird.
