Nintendo America have just announced their new Vice President of Sales following the departure of Reggie Fils-Aimé, and his name is unbelievable. As in, I did not believe it until I verified it.
His name is Doug Bowser.
As in the main antagonist in all of Nintendo’s Mario games. Who has a fictional female counterpart called Bowsette that fans thirsted over last year.
Putting aside the amazing fact that it’s a real human name, what are the odds that someone with that name would 1. end up working at Nintendo and 2. end up in charge of Nintendo?
How do we know this wasn’t his plan all along? To live up to his name and take down Nintendo from within?
TBH, he looks too nice to do that, but still.
But it’s still pretty hilarious.
Wait… why are Mario and Luigi tied up?! Oh no.
And his Twitter username is @thetruebowser?
Oh no. I’m getting nervous. Has Nintendo made a terrible mistake?
I guess things could have been worse.
