New Fortnite Emote Pays Homage To Classic SNL Sketch

Fortnite has a fever, and the only prescription is more cow bell.

2 Comments

Part of what makes Fortnite great is that it gets new skins, gear, and emotes all the time. One of the newly released pieces of equipment is a cow bell emote, only it's not called that.

In keeping with Fortnite's fascination with Llamas, developer Epic Games has released a "Llama Bell" emote in Fortnite. "Distract your opponents with more Llama Bell," Epic wrote about it. You can purchase the Llama Bell emote right now from Fortnite's in-game store.

As you can see, this Llama Bell emote is very clearly a re-creation of Will Ferrell's dance from the famous 2000 Saturday Night Live "More Cowbell" sketch.

In other Fortnite news, the game's latest update, 5.21, was released last week. It added a new mode called Soaring 50s and brought back the Sniper Shootout mode. Additionally, Epic added a new, mega-powerful weapon in the form of the Heavy Sniper.
