Watch This Dad Hilariously Reenact ‘Overwatch’ Game Gestures

Overwatch is a worldwide phenomenon, as millions all around the globe play the animated first-person shooter. But whether or not you’re a hardcore gamer or someone who can’t tell Mario from Master Chief, you’ll get a kick watching this rad dad imitate the characters. Clad in a polo, khaki shorts, and some Sperry’s, the theatrical dad, whose name is Mike Luciano, uses a variety of gardening tools and other miscellaneous items (including a Statue of Liberty foam hat) to reenact the unique gestures of some of the game’s 24 characters. The video already has over 350,000 views in just three days.
