We all know that Marco Reus is on the cover of FIFA 17! That’s awesome.

But do you know what’s even awesome-er? Reus playing FIFA 17 as himself and the rest of Dortmund. That’s what!

With Gamescom, the world’s largest video game trade’s fair, taking place this week in nearby Cologne, Germany, Reus made the short trip from Dortmund to try out the new version of FIFA.

And if this game play doesn’t get you so hyped to buy the game, well, I’m not sure what will.

So to recap the match, Reus didn’t score with himself - a humble gesture - but allowed Shinji Kagawa and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score instead. Dortmund held on to defeat Bayern 3-2.

The initial release date for FIFA 17 is scheduled for September 27. So mark your calendars! I don’t know about you all but productivity will be at an all-time low for me that day.

Chills, man. Chills.
