I regret to inform you that Rahul Kohli is at it again for fu*k’s sake.

It’s just ridiculous.

He simply refuses to stop.

Being the absolute best.

The wanker.

The London-born actor, whose new show—Mike Flanagan’s Midnight Mass—hit Netflix last Friday, has been using his already always-delightful-anyway Twitter feed to celebrate the public’s positive reaction to his new gig. In doing so he’s just ramped up the delightfulness to frankly insulting levels.

Whether he’s cracking jokes:

Or engaging with the positive reactions that have met his portrayal of a Muslim character in Western fiction who isn’t reduced to offensive Orientalist nonsense:

Or giving credit where credit is due:

Or just revelling in the outpouring of support and love that has come his and the show’s way since the premiere:

I haven’t seen Midnight Mass just yet, but Rahul was one of the strongest elements of Mike Flanagan’s previous work, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and I’m sure that’s gonna be the case here again.

The absolute best part of Rahul’s post-Midnight Mass Twitter feed, however, was when the conversation touched one subject very close to his heart: Gaming.

It started with someone tweeting their wishes at Mike Flanagan:

And then someone expanding this intriguing idea into something with even greater potential, about which Rahul made his feelings very clear:

And then came the blast of TNT:

Wait, sorry, did I say that was the TNT blast? I’m sorry, I meant this:

Then, as the poor Liverpool supporter was still picking up pieces of himself off the floor, another explosion rocked the ground:

As if the Scouse supporter didn’t have enough to gloat about, eh? It’s sickening. Sickening.
