Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is having a pretty fun offseason. He’s been trying to recruit LeBron James to play for the Steelers, and no, there isn’t a different LeBron James who plays football. He even took his campaign to LeBron’s doorstep, and had a “I’m never going to wash this hand again!” moment when LeBron gave him five as he was running out of the tunnel.

But that dap from LeBron may have been topped. How, you ask? Enter the popular video game” Fortnite,” and one of the most epic team-ups ever. It started early Thursday morning when Twitch streamer Ninja and rapper Drake teamed up on “Fortnite” and started broadcasting their session. (Caution: the videos below contain NSFW language.)

Then rapper Travis Scott joined them.

All of that was too much for Smith-Schuster. He had to get in on the action.

Smith-Schuster had the time of his life, and if you need proof, he said it himself.

“Better than scoring a touchdown!” That’s how epic this Drake/Ninja/Travis Scott team-up was for JuJu. And if somehow you *still* need to be convinced that he was having the best time ever, he couldn’t stop talking about it on his Twitter feed.

“What a time to be alive” is an understatement. First LeBron, then Drake and Travis Scott? Too amazing. I’m not sure if there’s anything that could top it, but I’m sure he’s going to try.
