The Switch is an absolute juggernaut of the gaming industry. This little hybrid has attracted indies and third-party developers from around the globe, sold like hotcakes, and has now officially entered the upper stratosphere of pop-culture relevance! Nintendo has released two new ads from its “My Way to Play” line of commercials featuring Hollywood superstars Awkwafina and Brie Larson enjoying their Switches. In Awkwafina’s ad, the star hides out from her production crew to enjoy some Animal Crossing before ending her day by playing Mario Kart with — and losing to — a friend online with Toadally embarrassing consequences. (I’m so sorry.)

 

 

Brie’s ad sees the Captain Marvel actress at home playing a bit of Fortnite before getting some reps in on Ring Fit Adventure. The video ends in a super heartwarming scene of Brie and her sister winding down on Animal Crossing as they reminisce on their childhood spent playing the original entry of the series on GameCube.
