Nintendo of France horny Solid Snake looks at butt Zero Suit Samus Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Sometimes, things happen, there is no context whatsoever, and you just have to roll with it. We have one such inexplicable event today. At 1:00 p.m. ET, Nintendo France got a bit horny with a tweet that included an eyes emoji and an image of Solid Snake staring at the butt of Zero Suit Samus in an image cobbled together from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This horny Nintendo France tweet stayed up for around two hours before being quietly deleted, with no evidence it ever existed — except for the hundred million people who grabbed a screenshot of it.

There are a few different guesses at what happened here. One is that a social media manager went a little off script, and someone higher up the chain eventually decided the tweet had to be removed. Another is that Nintendo France just didn’t think the Solid Snake / Zero Suit Samus butt tweet was that big a deal at first, but it subsequently became apprehensive when the tweet started getting the wrong kind of (horny) attention. And lastly, there’s always the possibility of an old-fashioned hack, but if you’re going to hack into an official Nintendo Twitter account, is tweeting a picture of Solid Snake staring at Zero Suit Samus’s butt really the thing you would do?… Well, maybe.

The ironic thing about this situation is that it’s usually Solid Snake’s butt that Super Smash Bros. fans are talking about.
