Spanish streamer TheGrefg has gone and shattered a Twitch record for concurrent viewers, reaching the lofty heights of more than 2 million viewers for his Fortnite skin reveal stream.

As of 1:18 pm PST, David "TheGrefg" Martinez has reached a total of 2,390,000 concurrent viewers. Funny enough, Martinez reached that goal before even showing his Fortnite skin, saying he was waiting for some image assets from Epic Games. TheGrefg is getting his own Fortnite skin as part of the Fortnite Icon Series, which has allowed some of the internet's biggest streamers and personalities to be immortalized in the battle royale world.

Ninja, the blue-haired Fortnite wunderkind himself, previously held Twitch's record at 667,000 viewers. U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently came close with a peak of 420,000 viewers during her Among Us stream in October. Martinez's new record also easily breaks esports league ELEAGUE TV's previous record of 1.1 million total viewers.

Other top streamers who've been inducted into the Icon Series include the likes of Loserfruit, Lachlan, DJ Marshmello, hip-hop artist Travis Scott, and Major Lazer.

And here's theGrefg's very own Fortnite skin.

Fortnite data miner HYPEX also managed to snag a short video of TheGrefg's emote.

It also appears that TheGrefg's skin is reactive, giving it an electrically charged look.

How to get the Grefg Fortnite skin

According to TheGrefg (with the help of some data miners like iFireMonkey and HYPEX), TheGrefg skin will be hitting the item shop on January 16 at 7 PM PST, and will cost somewhere in the ballpark of 2,000 - 3,000 V-bucks.

If you want to get TheGrefg's skin before it hits the item shop, Epic is throwing together a "The Floor is Lava" tournament from January 14 - 15. Winners will be able to acquire the skin a day before others.
