Twitch streamer Matthew ‘Mizkif’ Rinaudo lost his mind during his March 29 broadcast, after he finally caught a rare bug in Animal Crossing: New Horizons after a 10-hour search.

Animal Crossing’s latest installment New Horizons hit stores on March 20 and has been a smash success. The lovable simulation title has swept Twitch as streamers have been playing the laid back game for viewers.

However after 10 hours of trying to find the rare cicada bug, Mizkif exploded with happiness when he finally captured it. The personality was brought to hysterics after pulling off the feat.

New Horizons drops players off on a tropical island where they can build their very own town. The game also features a mechanic that allows you to capture insects and creatures with a net.

After four hours of trying to find a cicada, Mizkif finally found one sitting on a tree. “Is that it!?” he screamed to his chat. With his mouth still hung open in shock, he made his way closer to the bug and exclaimed “I think that’s it!”

The streamer then slowly inched his way closer to the side of his prey and raised up his net. However the attempt to capture it went horribly wrong as he hit the tree instead and scared it off. Frustrated, he threw his hands up into his face.

Hours later, he managed to score a second chance as he stumbled upon another of the rare creature. Not wanting to mess up again, he took his time strategizing with his chat before going in.

“Like if I do this, that’s not gonna f**k it up,” he said positioning himself in a straight line in front of the tree this time. He then managed to catch the cicada with his net and screamed with joy. “YES! YES! Oh my God, finally!”

The Twitch star continued to yell. “Finally! It’s been like 10 hours!! That took forever dude!” he exclaimed. His roommate entered the room after hearing the commotion and asked “Are you okay?” Mizkif replied with “I f**ing did it!” before jumping into his friend’s arms.

This isn’t the first time Mizkif has put in a ton of streaming hours to complete a task. In December 2019, he overcame the rage-inducing title Jump King and freaked out after finally reaching the end.

The streaming personality continues to be one of the most watched channels on Twitch, as his intense dedication to games draws in thousands of viewers.

An Animal Crossing YouTuber went viral after re-creating The Simpsons’ iconic intro in New Horizons. The player’s incredible mashup is one of the best things you’ll see today.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons took the world by storm after making its debut in March. The latest release in the long-running franchise introduced new features such as the ability to shape your village however you see fit using terraforming.

The new mechanic has sparked the imaginations of millions of users on social media, and one creator went viral after using the tool to bring The Simpsons to the social-simulation title. Their re-imagination of the classic cartoon’s intro is the perfect crossover.

The Simpsons made its debut in 1989, and has gone on to become a juggernaut in pop culture over the last three decades. In 2020, the animation is in its 31st season. To celebrate, a player re-created the show’s intro in New Horizons.

Gaming YouTuber ‘Great-Bit Arcade‘ uploaded their mind blowing creation to their channel on July 29, and quickly went viral. The video carefully re-creates the animation’s iconic intro, which follows the Simpson family throughout their town of Springfield.

The fan creatively used assets from Animal Crossing to create the town’s nuclear plant, before hilariously cutting to their character writing on a chalk board in school while wearing Bart Simpson’s signature outfit.

Great-Bit’s video meticulously recreates every scene, from Maggie and Marge driving to Lisa playing her saxophone in school. The YouTuber even created a couch gag with the Simpson family walking in to find Tom Nook and Isabelle taking up all the space on their sofa.

Animal Crossing’s latest release has been a major success for Nintendo. In a quarterly report posted in August, it was revealed the social simulation title has sold over 22.4 million units – making it the second highest-selling game on the console.

New Horizons’ terraforming tool has encouraged players from around the world to share their creations on social media. Fans have reimagined things from Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away to Avatar: The Last Airbender using the game’s new feature.
