T1 League of Legends players Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok and Park “Teddy” Jin-seong have jumped on the Wild Rift bandwagon as they appeared in a new advert for Wild Rift in South Korea.
The ad starts with a young man playing Wild Rift while waiting for his bus to arrive. After losing a game, the bus appears and the ad reveals Faker in the driver’s seat. The three-time Worlds champion casually asks the guy if he wants to get on the bus, which is slang for “Want to get carried by me?” in Korean according to a translation by Redditor u/skurch.
The second part of the CV had people boarding the bus and scanning their phones, with the machine reading the passengers’ Wild Rift rank out loud. When one passenger, retired pro player and caster Lee “CloudTemplar” Hyun-woo, scans his phone and announces Challenger rank, Faker and Teddy stare at him in amazement and CloudTemplar winks at them.
The commercial video ends with the Wild Rift bus driving away and the voiceover encouraging players to download the game on their Android phones.
Wild Rift has landed in South Korea and Japan servers after the game took a short break during the first week of October. Now, it’s almost ready to launch its Regional Open Beta including Southeast Asian countries Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand.
