A Grand Theft Auto player has unearthed a glitch that takes character customization to new heights: all the way up to Beverly Hills’ Dr. 90210.
They say that life is like a box of chocolates. And, you know, sometimes GTA Online is like a box of chocolates too. Except there’s a chance that, after you’ve patiently taken time to make your choice, your chocolate surprises you with a pair of breasts.
That’s exactly what happened to Redditor, Mattrunnit, who successfully loaded his bearded, John Wick-esque character into GTA Online — only to find out that, from the neck down, he had turned into a middle-aged woman with a penchant for low cut necklines.
Mattrunnit’s character has the mom jeans, top and body of a mother bringing her kids to the mall. Even their hair, a parted, mid-length bob hairdo, could fit a Karen.
But, like a timed challenge on RuPaul’s Drag Race gone wrong, his character seems not to have had enough time to shave their beard or finish doing their makeup.
And, if their concerned eyes and furrowed brows are any indication, the character is not happy with being photographed in this half-baked state. Maybe that’s why Mattrunnit had to sneakily take this candid picture with a potato — quality that he’s already apologized for on Reddit, and fans will one day forgive him for.
This is not the first glitch that has surfaced in GTA Online, nor is it likely to be the last. In the past, we’ve had flying trucks and the infamous Los Santos vehicular springboard. This bug may not be as vertically volatile as some of the others, but anyone will appreciate its aesthetic creativity.
If popular sayings can be misappropriated, then glitches get stitches. And, if you’re loading up GTA Online, be aware that surprise plastic surgery is a real possibility and your character’s body may have gotten some work done.
Rockstar are yet to officially announce that they are looking into the problem, but as is the case for all bugs, usually a fix is on the way.
