Team Secret offlaner Daryl “iceiceice” Koh has been known for his humorous antics since the early days of Dota 2, often horsing around in interviews, on broadcasts, and of course, on streams.
During Team Secret’s star Syed Sumail “SumaiL” Hassan’s first stream in seven months, the offlaner celebrated the occasion with a cheeky iceiceice dance in the background.
Putting on his best Tobey Maguire Spiderman impression, he was caught by an eagle-eyed viewer, who then posted it on Reddit. As he busted out the moves, an oblivious SumaiL continued blocking his lane creeps, en route to a quick and easy victory.
Iceiceice dance cameo on SumaiL’s stream surprises viewers
Even Team Secret joined in on the fun, putting up a side-by-side comparison with iceiceice’s and Tobey Maguire’s dance from the movie on Facebook.
The Bully Maguire dance originated from the Spider-Man 3 movie, where Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man is shown as becoming more egotistical after he fuses with a symbiote from outer space.
The 31-year-old has been bringing his unique humorous approach to pro Dota for a decade. While playing with Zenith, iceiceice executed a no-ban strategy that managed to get a win against The International 2 champions Invictus Gaming. But though his antics might agitate others, he somehow remains cool as, well, ice.
The two Secret players are preparing for the start of the new Dota Pro Circuit season, scheduled for March 15 to April 20. The European titans’ new all-star roster looked good on paper, but had a shaky start to the year after finishing fifth in the DPC WEU 2021/2022 Div I Tour 1. The team missed out on the Winter Regional Finals and the chance for additional DPC points, and their recent LAN performance at the Gamers Galaxy Dota 2 Invitational Series Dubai 2022 was also uninspiring.
But there’s plenty of time to turn it around. With two seasons to go, few will bet against Secret and their bevy of veterans to figure it out and turn things around.
