New Fortnite Emote Pays Homage To Classic SNL Sketch
Fortnite has a fever, and the only prescription is more cow bell.
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.
