The internet is going Photoshop crazy over Gootecks' ELeague attire

Today marks the third day of ELeague preliminaries, and famed Cross Counter star Gootecks is participating in a round robin against some of the strongest competitors Street Fighter 5 has to offer.

As we've seen in day one and two, there's a bit more production value at ELeague than in your average fighting game event. Players are getting their own promos, consistent interviews and are under the spotlight in ways that generally aren't all that common for fighting gamers.

Gootecks may not be the favorite to win with the likes of FOX|Tokido, RZR|Xian and GRPT|Fuudo also vying for victory, but he's fully embracing the opportunity to turn heads on national television, dressing up and playing the part of a character viewers won't soon forgot.

There's only a photo or two floating around of Gootecks in his Matrix-like garbs, but already the internet is going to town with Photoshop, and it's hilarious.

No press is bad press in a situation like this, and so we have to say it was a rather brilliant idea on Gootecks' part to take center stage with a move like this. Check out all the ELeague action over at our tournament coverage page, and be sure to follow Gootecks on Twitter.
