Elden Ring may have won the Game of the Year Award for 2022, but soon after, the “Bill Clinton Kid” decided to crash the party. He proceeded to nominate the GOTY award to Bill Clinton, which led to a lot of memes and even raised several concerns. But who is this kid and was there some deeper motive in his speech? Here is what you should know about the “Bill Clinton” Kid that crashed the Game awards 2022.
Who is the Bill Clinton Kid from Game Awards 2022?
The Kid who crashed the Game Awards 2022 is none other than Matan Even. I say none other than because he has pulled similar stunts twice before. So here is what happened at the game awards.
After Hidetaka Miyazaki finished his speech. Matan walked up to the Mic and said “Hey Matan, you know real quick I want to thank everybody and say that I think I want to nominate this award to my reformed Orthodox Rabbi, Bill Clinton. Thank you, everybody.”
When his “speech” ended, security took care of the matter. Geoff Keighley followed up with a Tweet stating that “The individual who interrupted our Game of the Year moment has been arrested.”.
So what was the meaning behind all this? It appears that there was no meaning and that this kid happens to be a prankster. This has also been confirmed by Senior Contributor Paul Tassi from Forbes, you can check out their article here.
As mentioned previously, Matan is known for such stunts. He first crashed an NBA Game in the past where he baited the cameraman and then flashed a T-shirt that said: “Fight for Freedom Stand with Hong Kong”. He pulled a similar stunt back in Blizzcon 2019 where he was pacing the front row shouting “Free Hong Kong”. When given the mic to let him ask a question, he repeated the same. And because of these incidents, he has even been interviewed on Infowars.
