Brands are always looking to stay relevant on social media in one way or another. Nintendo of America is no exception, today posting a tweet pitting Star Fox's Slippy--fighter pilot and barrel roll enthusiast--against another green frog, this one riding a unicycle.
As of this writing, Slippy is unsurprisingly losing to the Dat Boi meme by a margin of several thousands votes.
Despite Twitter now offering a polling feature--which has already been used to get answers to important questions--Nintendo set Slippy up for failure by going with the classic "favorite for Slippy, retweet for Dat Boi" structure. Who doesn't want to pass along this bizarre question with a retweet?
Predictably, the real gold lies in the replies to Nintendo's tweet. You can see a sampling of these below.
