Tokido measuring Punk's water bottle in preparation for ELEAGUE's Street Fighter 5 playoffs today is either insane or brilliant... I think the latter

The tape measure tech has ascended to the next level

ELEAGUE's Street Fighter 5 Invitational 2018 is coming to its conclusion later today. After four groups of six players each battled it out to move on to the playoffs, it all comes down to the final eight.

FOX|Tokido, FOX|Punk, Mouz|Problem X, CYG|Daigo, CO|Dogura, FOX|Momochi, Rise|Smug, and FD|Fujimura will all take to the ELEAGUE stage with hopes of walking out with first place and a nice chunk of that $250,000 prize pool.

In a recent Instagram story from Smug, we got a quick behind the scenes look at the ELEAGUE players hanging out before the event. The story shows a great moment where Tokido brings out his measuring tape once again, only this time he's not tracking the distance between him and the monitor he's playing on.

Instead, Tokido scoops up Punk's water bottle after Punk has taken a sip and begins measuring it. Tokido then gives Punk a nod of approval making the clip that much funnier.

Why Tokido would measure a water bottle is beyond me. Perhaps he's trying to make sure that Punk is getting proper H20 intake. Or maybe it's psychological warfare...

Whatever it is, it's going to be interesting to see how things shake out when these two players slug it out as the first match in ELEAGUE's Street Fighter 5 playoffs. You'll be able to catch the action today on Twitch starting at 3 p.m. PDT / 6 p.m. EDT or at 11 p.m. PDT / EDT on TBS.

Follow along with us here at EventHubs today for live results and highlights after the event is over.
