Here’s why Bill Clinton is trending on Twitter with the Game Awards
What do Bill Clinton and the Game Awards have in common? Tonight we learned that even when things go wrong, the show must go on.
Expect the unexpected, especially at live shows where anything can happen. That’s the lesson Geoff Keighley learned during this year’s Game Awards when an unwelcome guest walked onto the stage during the Game of the Year acceptance speech.
A young man followed FromSoftware president and Elden Ring director Hidetaka Miyazaki and his translator, who was accepting the award, onto the stage and stood behind them as they spoke before finally approaching the microphone himself. Nobody could predict what would happen next.
Speaking about the music, he said: “Very quick – I want to thank everyone and say that I believe I would like to nominate this award to my Reformed Orthodox Rabbi, Bill Clinton. Thank you all.”
Game Awards security promptly ushered him off the stage, and Keighley quickly regained control of the show to end the night.
Keighley tweeted shortly after with an update that the person had been arrested following the ordeal:
All in all, it was handled quickly and efficiently without too much disruption to the show (apart from some awkwardness and confusion for a few moments). We don’t know why this unwelcome guest wanted to nominate Bill Clinton of all people, but it explains why the former US President is trending at the Game Awards.
