On March 9, popular video game Fortnite took to Twitter to announce their latest Gunslinger Smokeshow Emote featuring BTS’ Suga and PSY’s That That choreography and music.
BTS’ Suga and PSY collaborated for the first time for the latter’s eighth studio album, Psy 9th, and composed the song That That together. The music video was well received by fans, who went berserk over the duo’s dance moves and upbeat lyrics.
On the day Fortnite announced the Smokeshow Emote, ARMYs were occupied with celebrating the birthday of BTS’ Suga and upon stumbling on the latest feature added by the popular video game, one fan tweeted:
“FOUND THE ARMY LMAO”: Netizens can’t get enough of the new emote whose dance moves matches BTS’ Suga and Psy’s That That choreography
Previously, Fortnite has added BTS’ hit English single Dynamite and since then ARMYs can’t get enough of it. While many were busy celebrating Suga’s birthday, those who are into Fortnite games soon discovered that its newest dance moves resemble that of That That choreography.
Soon, the fandom started purchasing the new emote. One fan even stated that when they did That That emote in the lobby, someone else responded to them with a Dynamite emote, thus convincing both the players that they are ARMYS.
Some fans even purchased the emote as soon as possible because of Suga, while other felt that the aforementioned news has been neglected by many as there’s so much going on in the BTS’ fandom — the solos of different members, announcements of various collaborations, and more. Take a look at how fans are reacting to the recent news:
