Since launching in March, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has taken over the world. Aided in no small part by the movement restrictions enforced worldwide to slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, players all over the planet have found themselves with plenty of time on their hands to enjoy the latest entry in Nintendo's sedate life sim.
In these past weeks it seems that many famous faces have taken advantage of Tom Nook's Island Getaway Package, and celebrities playing Animal Crossing have been popping up all over social media. Some of them you might expect to be Animal Crossing fans, but others have been rather surprising.
Gary Whitta has attracted some huge names to his Twitch-streamed talk show Animal Talking, for example. His upcoming guests include (and we're not making this up) musicians Shaggy and Sting. Yes, apparently Sting plays Animal Crossing. Of course, there's no reason why he shouldn't--it's a great game--but add this to everything else going on in the world right now and we're genuinely starting to question which bizarre timeline we're living in.
Below we've listed just some of the celebrities who have been enjoying Animal Crossing: New Horizons since launch. This is a non-exhaustive list, but we'll add it when the next unlikely fan crops up. We've got money on Dua Lipa and HRH Prince Charles.
