Reddit users and gamers are now longing for a PS5 as the GRAMMY-winning rapper Eminem got a pleasant surprise from Santa Claus who gave him the PlayStation 5 console. The whole scene played out in a "Stan" parody by SNL called "Stu."
"Saturday Night Live" mixed the Christmas cheer with Eminem's dark 2000 hit "Stan" to create a parody that included an unexpected cameo from the rapper.
In the parody video, Pete Davidson played as "Stu" who is an obsessed fan of Santa Claus and write him aggressive letters asking him for a PlayStation 5 for Christmas.
As soon as the video parody aired, numerous gamers and Reddit users took their sentiments to Reddit and talked about hard to purchase and hard to find console.
Since its launch, PlayStation 5 are immediately sold out as soon as it hit the shelves. In the r/playstation sub-Reddit, users are wondering why it is so difficult to get their hands on the console, with some suggesting that there are people who are bulk buying it to sell it for a much higher price.
User u/Pierruno went as far as suggesting a theory that bots are helping the scalpers from bulk buying PS5 on online retail stores so they can target willing gamers.
Meanwhile, in the r/PS5 sub-Reddit, users were surprised by the rappers cameo at the end of the comedy sketch and was thrilled that Santa Claus was able to get a PS5 for Eminem.
The rapper ended the video thanking Santa Claus for the gift, and mentioning that he had been a "good boy" this year, and users hilariously wrote about how they want a PS5 from Santa Claus too.
