A superfan of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia combined their love of the hit show with Animal Crossing: New Horizons for an incredible Paddy’s Pub recreation.

Since its release, Animal Crossing fans have been redesigning sets from movies, tv shows, and other games thanks to its seemingly endless creation tools. Now, it’s time for the hit FX comedy series to get its turn.


Redditor ‘chipolthey’ posted the sleek design to Animal Crossing subreddit to great success, racking up over 6,000 up-votes from fellow players.

For the most part, the design is pretty spot on with the brick wall interior, green doors, barstools, and booths. There’s no mistaking that this is a bar that has seen better days.

Paddy’s Pub is the show’s main location.

Even some of the wall paintings and pictures look like they were ripped directly from the show, really bringing the pub to life.

The pub even has pool and foosball tables, and dartboard just like the one in the show. Perhaps the best part, however, comes in the form of the bird manning the bar. As any Always Sunny fan knows, one of the running jokes is how Deandra ‘Dee’ Reynolds, played by Kaitlin Olson, is constantly referred to as “bird” by other characters, such as her brother Dennis.

The creator made a point to acknowledge this in their post, writing that the bar even featured Dee as an attraction.

“I really lucked out having Sandy on my island. She’s even got the tacky eyeshadow that Sweet Dee has in the earlier seasons hahaha,” the Redditor wrote in the comments.

For fans of Always Sunny, recreating the famous bar in Animal Crossing is a great way to pass the time until the next season rolls out.

Back in May, FX announced that the show had been renewed for a record-breaking fifteenth season. With it, Always Sunny will surpass The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet as the longest-running live-action comedy series.

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.
