SKT take a break from Summoner’s Rift to be shopping channel hosts

Is Faker eyeing his future profession?

When you are asked to join one of the world’s biggest esports teams, you know what to expect. Countless hours of practice, high-pressure scenarios, and coping with thousands of adoring fans come with the job.

Becoming a Korean shopping channel host, however, is not what you would expect.

The members of SK Telecom T1 suited up to take part in a promotional video on SKT’s YouTube channel to show off some new computer parts, presumably as part of a sponsorship deal.

Mid laner Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok and jungler Han “Peanut” Wang-ho hosted while other members of SKT joined in on the fun.

Just like in matches on the Rift, SKT brought in substitute jungler Kang “Blank” Sun-gu to cover for Peanut when the heat was on, to get the team through to the end.

SKT showed great synergy during their pitch, even with a few members falling into hysterics while reciting their lines.

Here’s hoping for another video soon.
