Wrecking Ball was released after Overwatch’s Anniversary event, so he doesn’t have a dancing emote quite yet, but one Reddit user took it upon themselves to give everyone’s favorite Hamster a dance of his own.
A popular meme when Wrecking Ball first came out was to compare him to the music video for Miley Cyrus’s 2013 hit “Wrecking Ball”, for obvious reasons.
Reddit user Awbiee took the meme to whole new level and created a perfectly looped animated gif of Hammond strutting his stuff on top of his mech.
The animation is pretty hilarious because Hammond really seems to be getting into it, but the look on his poor face just screams “I can’t believe I’m doing this.”
Hammond will probably get a dance emote during next year’s anniversary event, and hopefully the actual dance will be as hilarious as Awbiee’s creation.
The Overwatch Anniversary Event usually begins sometime in May, so players still have a while to wait before they get to see Hammond’s in-game dance.
No matter what kind of dance they end up giving Overwatch’s resident fur ball, it will have a hard time being funnier than this.
