Hot Spartan Summer… Fall
Sensational rap artist Megan Thee Stallion seems to be on a one-woman mission to twerk her way to pop culture infamy — Not content with getting all the knuckle-draggers angry via her recent appearance on Marvel’s She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, the Texan lyric spitter is now cutting a rug with, of all the people, Halo‘s legendary spartan warrior, Master Chief.
The bizarre but energizing confrontation took place at TwitchCon this past weekend, where Ms. Thee Stallion was performing an on-stage set for a rabid crowd of fans and attendees. It was a typical flashy and energetic appearance from the artist, but things took a turn for both the bizarre and the fantastic when Megan was joined by the Halo protagonist, who promptly bust out some fuckin’ moves in full Spartan armor, moving with all the fluidity of my broke-ass knees on the dance floor.

I particularly like the touch that John-117 is still wearing his TwitchCon laminate.
As previously referenced, Megan Thee Stallion made headlines recently for *checks notes* “twerking” in a recent episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. The post-credits sequence saw the rapper getting down with Jennifer Walters in her New York office. This was, apparently, the single worst atrocity ever committed, and would lead to weeks of angry Tweets and YouTube videos with titles along the lines of “The MARVEL UNIVERSE is DEAD and KILLED and DESTROYED!”
One can’t help but wonder if there is a bit of a troll job going on here. As if perhaps Master Chief’s appearance was an event intended to double down on baiting the angriest of boys. We may never know the truth, and who cares? frankly — This is nothing more nor less than a silly, amusing, and fun little crossover that sees the meeting of two stellar, if weirdly disconnected, icons. And, it seems, for the most part, that fans were super stoked to see this surreal collision of cultures.
Regardless, when Master Chief gets back to Cortana, there’s gonna be a helluva lot of explaining to do.
