Since Animal Crossing: New Horizons launched last month, we've seen plenty of wonderful designs, islands and funny moments created by fans of the game. Despite all of that, we still never expected to see something quite like this.
As spotted by Eurogamer, a Reddit user going by the name of tybat11 has set up WeedCo, a weed removal service which can be called upon by Animal Crossing: New Horizons players. It probably sounds like we're joking, but this is an actual, real thing that's happening; demand has reached such a point that there's now an online booking form.
No payment is required for the service, although tips are appreciated, and any bookings will ensure that your island becomes beautifully weed-free. tybat11 shared a brilliant video to Reddit showing how new employees are taught on the job; to pass, a potential employee must expertly pick weeds amongst other flowers and look for any that might be hiding behind trees or cliffs. The result is a position at the company and even a uniform.
You can even apply to join the company yourself if you're interested. tybat11 says that you can send them a 30-second clip demonstrating your weeding skills to be considered - and yes, you'll even get your own WeedCo uniform.
What a wonderful, unique way to enjoy your time with the game. Nice job, tybat11. We love it!
