It seems real flesh and blood people aren’t the only ones addicted to Facebook these days. Apparently video game characters are too, at least if you ask artist Andrew Golden. His collection of fake Facebook photos below is almost as clever as the comments he’s added beneath them.
It’s fun to see Princess Peach post the classic Facebook duckface photo, to see Zelda and Link’s engagement photo, and to watch Pac-Man gettin his blink on. It’s a little strange to see Mario and Luigi being players in the club, but I like it. The comments on the Goro (Mortal Kombat) picture are the best.
If you’d like to see the enlarged illustrations where you can read the comments easier, just click over to Andrew Golden’s deviantART page. You’ll also be able to see more of his fabulous art. Seeing these characters post photos on Facebook gives them such a human quality, but that is ironic in itself since we hear people say all the time that we should get off Facebook and live our real lives. Retro video game character art is always one of my favorites, and when it’s combined with something as modern as social media, well, it doesn’t get much better than that!
