Locking is hard. While many people – even celebrities – are getting used to the new norm, the move has not been easy. One thing that made it more behavioral? Crossing animals: New Horizons.
The game has been around for a long time, but the Nintendo Switch version was released just in time to get people through the epidemic with relatively good mental health. There are even celebrities get in on the action.
Chrissy Teigen is a ‘bellionaire’
While Chrissy Teigen is a butterfly on social media, she’s not going to be social in the game. Teigen has been posting Animal Crossing content on her popular Twitter feed since the game was released, but she doesn’t take advantage of every game on offer.
According to Teigen, she loves fishing, and shaking trees for money. At this point she seems to be a ‘bellionaire,’ but she doesn’t share. Teigen added: “I don’t like visiting other people’s islands or inviting people to mine. Honestly I don’t really get or care about the switch friend code thing. ”
That’s an amazing position coming from someone so social. But even if she doesn’t like visiting other islands, Teigen doesn’t play alone. Her mother, Vilailuck, also plays.
Both women are excellent chefs, and have even made a recipe from the game in real life, each Eating guilty.
Danny Trejo delivers his dodo code
Danny Trejo is basically against Teigen when it comes to Animal Crossing. He loves friends to come to his island. He even offered to give it a go on Twitter, which is a dangerous move considering how social media platforms can be. Hopefully he got some comfort in the game during quarantine.
Trejo wasn’t the only celebrity hanging out with the crowd in the game. Elijah Wood made Fan a day when he went to her island and bought turnips. According to the fan, she posted the prices on Twitter.
The next thing she did fresh, Wood looked up to take advantage of the sale. “I tweeted my turnip prices and elijah wood came straight to my island and hung out that this is the best day in quarantine yet.”
Riverdale star Cole Sprouse visited fan islands to sell turnips. Sprouse was so big for a deal that he tweeted about turnips, asking fans what they had to offer.
Guy Fieri has Flavortown Island
At lockdown, Guy Fieri couldn’t travel around to different restaurants and try on local gems as he does Diners, Drive-Ins, and divers. But he found a way to get out and taste local food, almost anyway.
Fieri posted a post about his island, actually known as Flavortown Island, on Twitter. He even made fun of trying to cook Tom Nook. “I’m here on Flavortown Island checkin ‘out on a run with local legend, Tom Nook! ”
Brie Larson is about a girl
Brie Larson has apparently been a fan of the game since she was a small child. She and her sister used to play it all the time, so she’s been waiting for New Horizons to come out for a long time.
When the game came out, she even posted a Crossing Animal shirt on Instagram with the caption: “Already happy with #AnimalCrossing: New Horizons! I miss Tom Nook so much! If you are looking for sweet ways to spend time at home, I highly recommend you grab your #NintendoSwitch and escape to your own island now, who owns iron bars. can they give me? ”
Larson isn’t the only festival in Crossing Animal gear. Blink-182 member Mark Hoppus was so into the game that he bought an amiibo of his own.
