Blizzard has sneakily hidden an Easter egg in their Overwatch Summer Games 2017 event referencing Channel 4’s The IT Crowd.
The sneaky addition comes in the form of the beer can on Soldier 76’s new Grillmaster skin. Being the master of the grill, Soldier 76 is kitted out with beers, although they call them sodas, instead of his Biotic Field. Redditor /u/xSociety spotted that this new addition to “soda” cans included a familiar number on the barcode. The number reads 0118 999 881 999 119 7253 which fans of The IT Crowd will recognise as the number for the new emergency services.
This is especially clever since the canisters of drink are deployed for an area of effect healing which you could expect from the good looking emergency services under the new number.
If you aren’t familiar with The IT Crowd this is what it refers to:
Once again, that number is 0118 999 881 999 119 7253.
Overwatch is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
