Last week, YouTuber elrubius put out a call saying he wanted 100 of the top Spanish-speaking Fortnite players to get together and play in the one game. That game went down earlier tonight, streamed live on YouTube, and over 1 million people tuned into watch.
Chavales, esto puede que sea una locura, pero si sale puede ser divertido de cojones. Quiero juntar a 100 Youtubers TOP de habla hispana para reventarnos en Fortnite esta semana. Ya hay algunos apuntados, pero si estais interesados escribidme por twitter. VA A SER LEGENDARIO.
