A Reddit user is recreating iconic music videos using the Nintendo Switch game Animal Crossing (AC).
On March 31, the Redditor who goes by kazoo-E uploaded their first music video recreation to the Animal Crossing subreddit. The first music video they chose to bring to life was Mariah Carey’s “We Belong Together.”
“I haven’t really experimented in Harvey’s photopia until today,” they wrote, referring to the photo studio that Animal Crossing users can visit and play around with. “[I] recreated a music video.”
Fellow Redditors and gamers went nuts for the Mariah Carey/AC crossover. One person even said that it was “honestly one of the most creative things [they’ve] seen in this game so far.”
Given the fanfare surrounding the Mariah Carey music video, kazoo-E decided to upload more music videos to Reddit. So far, they’ve recreated Eminem and D12’s “My Band,” Britney Spears’ “Oops!… I Did It Again” and, most recently, Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance.”
So far, every video has been met with equal amounts of enthusiasm.
“These are amazing. Thank you so much for doing these,” one person wrote in response to the most recent Gaga video. “Of course!” kazoo-E responded. “So glad so many people like to watch these and actually look forward to them!”
