A video clip of Shadowmere, the horse mount in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, went viral recently after it appeared to be teabagging a draugr corpse. Teabagging is a gesture in gaming in which a player squats over the body of a defeated enemy, typically as a way of taunting or disrespecting them. While it is considered outdated and somewhat distasteful by modern gaming standards, it remains a popular meme among gamers.
In the video, Shadowmere can be seen rearing up on its hind legs and lowering its head onto the draugr’s corpse. The timing and positioning of the horse’s movements are such that it appears to be intentionally teabagging the corpse. However, it is more likely that this was simply a glitch in the game’s animation.
Nevertheless, the video has been met with a mixture of amusement and disbelief. Some players have praised Shadowmere for its “hilarious” behavior, while others have expressed their disgust at the horse’s actions. Regardless of how one interprets the video, it is clear that it has captured the attention of the gaming community.
Here are some other details about the video:
- It was posted to the r/Skyrim subreddit on August 23, 2023.
- The video has been viewed over 1 million times.
- The user who posted the video claims that they did not intentionally glitch Shadowmere’s animation.
- Some commenters have speculated that the glitch may have been caused by a mod that the user was using.
Whether or not Shadowmere was actually teabagging the draugr corpse, the video has certainly generated a lot of discussion. It is a reminder that even the most serious games can have their moments of humor.
