Chargers take vicious shot at Raiders with schedule launch easter egg
The Chargers are again at it once more with their iconic schedule launch movies, and one little easter egg is an absolute stroke of savage genius.
The Chargers went for one more anime-inspired launch video full with comedian book-style results and delicate digs at their opponents, and naturally, their AFC West rivals acquired the worst of it.
LA made jokes at Kansas Metropolis superfan “Chiefaholic’s” expense and in addition delivered a knockout punch to the Broncos, depicting Russell Wilson in opposition to Patrick (from Spongebob) in a cook-off. “That’s not what he needed to cook dinner” will go down in historical past as one of many cruelest burns ever, and from a fictional starfish, no much less.
The true star of the present, nonetheless, was the Chargers’ vicious takedown of the Las Vegas Raiders. Of their first scheduled matchup displayed within the video, Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels is enjoying the slot machine sport referred to as “Get Your Quarter Again.” He wins, and he will get Jimmy Garoppolo.
Within the second matchup, the Chargers social crew continues the on line casino motif (as a result of Vegas, duh) and divulges what McDaniels truly acquired from the sport: a cashout voucher to Fantasy Treasure Resort (F*** The Raiders) for -$72,750,000, the worth of Jimmy G’s deal.

However wait, that’s not all.
The validation quantity on the voucher consists of the numbers 6-11, 10-7, 8-8, 7-9, 4-12, and 6-10, the Raiders’ season data for the final six years.
Fantastic print on the underside of the voucher reads “not legitimate for full season” and “not redeemable for wedding ceremony invite.” Garoppolo is taken into account a extremely injury-prone quarterback, and the marriage invite refers to McDaniels not getting invited to Darren Waller’s wedding ceremony. Waller was traded to the Giants shortly after, and Waller’s spouse, Kelsey Plum, joked that McDaniels was salty concerning the snub.
Now right here’s the bread and gravy. The voucher has a QR code that may be scanned. As soon as scanned, customers have been taken to a Chargers internet web page that prompted Chargers followers to click on one field and Raiders followers to click on one other.
Chargers followers have been redirected to a ticket-purchasing web site. Raiders followers have been redirected to a Google search: “find out how to get a job.”
If you happen to scan the QR code for the Raiders sport on the @chargers schedule launch video it takes you to the ticket web page and asks you which of them fanbase you’re from.
