Fortnite has been a success since day one. With great ideas for the gameplay and amazing weapons, this game has found its place in our hearts almost immediately. It is very successful now, with a fanbase all over the world. And since it’s that popular, of course, everyone keeps talking about it.
A new certain video went live on TikTok, showing the ‘old man bug skin’ from Fortnite. Of course, players are still confused about this skin, so let’s get into it.
First of all, that is not the real name of the skin that’s now a meme on TikTok. The short video has more than 440 thousand likes and 13 thousand comments. It shows a snipper from another TikTok video of a woman saying, “A lot of Fortnite players are so confused about the old man bug skin, so I looked into it.” Then we see a boy standing in the rain, and the caption is “old man bug skin.” But the skin is actually based on a real character.
So what’s with this skin?
In the early ’70s, there was a popular Mexican sitcom called ‘El Chapulín Colorado. It was a parody of other superhero shows which were popular during that time. It was created by Roberto Gómez Bolaños, who also played the main character – El Chapulín Colorado. We know most of the players don’t know what we’re talking about. But the old man bug skin is actually El Chapulín Colorado.
The skin was added to the game on the 1st of November, and it comes with its own unique item set. It was available for you to buy in the game’s Item Shop.
