The Game Awards had seemingly gone off without a hitch, right up until the last moment, when an attendee at the show was able to simply walk on stage along with FromSoftware as Hidetaka Miyazaki and the rest of his team accepted Game Of The Year.
This individual then waited until the team was finished speaking, to approach the mic and use that chance to thank, and nominate for an award, their “reformed orthodox rabbi Bill Clinton,” before being escorted off stage by security.
Here’s what they said in full.
“Hey my turn…I think I want to thank everybody and say that…I think I want to nominate this award to my reformed orthodox rabbi Bill Clinton, thank you everybody.”
The person of interest has since been arrested, confirmed showrunner Geoff Keighley.
Who exactly is this person is the big question, though a Twitter user has already come forward claiming to know them, even showing screenshots of alleged messages with the individual, even showing he was given a heads up to the attendee going on stage.
Where things go even further down the rabbit hole is that this inevitably successful attempt to get on stage was something the individual had planned to do at least four days prior, and this person also allegedly appeared on the alt-right show InfoWars.
The Twitter user has also since released a video, going over the order of events as he saw them on his phone.
Not exactly the end to the show that Keighley might’ve imagined, that’s for sure.
