Twitch streamer ‘jenwaaa’ attempted to “propose” to her boyfriend in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but the potentially magical moment ended in a less-than-romantic conclusion.

The streamer explained that a viewer gave her a ring in the game, which she decided to use to surprise her boyfriend, fellow streamer ‘enigma’, when he walked into the room during a broadcast.

Jenwaaa’s plan was very simple: show off her romantic zen garden to her boyfriend and present him with the ring.

The streamer’s “proposal” is a running gag.

“I mean, just wow,” she said when revealing her master plan. “You know it’s a beautiful ring. It’s gorgeous.”

A few moments later, it finally came time for the moment the streamer had planned. After getting her boyfriend’s attention, she called him over to her setup to show him something.

At first, he was impressed with the sunset in the game and thought she just wanted to showcase New Horizons’ graphics, but that wasn’t it, at all.

“You ready?” she asked.

“Yes, hurry up,” he responded, apparently eager to get back to his own activities.

“I’ve got something special to show you,” she explained, leading him to the zen garden. Then, she shocked him by opening up the ring box, exposing the diamond she was given by a fan.

“Okay, dude,” he laughed, doing a 180 and bolting out of the room. “Okay!”

While the streamer looked sad and appeared to shut her stream off shortly thereafter, she told Dexerto that it was a bit of an inside joke between her viewers and her boyfriend.

As it turns out, the streamer always jokes about proposing to her boyfriend, so after one of her viewers gave her a ring, she decided it would be a perfect joke.

That said, if her boyfriend had of said ‘yes,’ it would have been another story.

“I would have been like ‘Cool, let’s do it. Let’s talk about that,’” she laughed.

Although the two didn’t end up tying the knot this time, it would certainly make for a cool moment if streamer and her boyfriend do eventually decide to get married during a live broadcast.

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.
