Mark this down as one of the best Overwatch memes on the interwebz.

Overwatch game director, Jeff Kaplan, has been the face of the game since its reveal, and as such he’s developed somewhat of a cult following among the diehards.

He frequently responds to questions and queries on the official Overwatch Battle.net forums, and his calming voice in videos is the perfect counteraction to the game’s otherwise constant sense of chaos and action.

That he’s become such an icon among the Overwatch community should really come as no surprise: anyone as involved and active with a game tends to build a strong rapport with the community they represent.

This relationship is perhaps most evident in this parody video, in which Kaplan’s patch note videos have been chopped up and sliced together to make a rendition of Smash Mouth’s All Star, but of course with an Overwatch tinge (“Hey now, you’re a Platinum!”)
