Let’s set the scene. You’re happily playing away on your Switch, plucking up the courage to take on Ganon in Zelda or grabbing your latest Power Moon in Mario Odyssey, when you get called upon by your parents, your siblings, or your always-nagging boss. “Just one more minute!” you shout, frustrated that they’d be so careless as to disrupt your valuable game time. We’ve all been there, right?
Well, for Brendan Fraser, the world-famous actor best known for his roles in films like The Mummy and George of the Jungle, this moment just so happened to fall during a fan meet and greet. A fan meet and greet which has now been posted – in full – online, creating a brand new meme and a fantastic scene that’ll be watched over and over again all in one go.
You can see it all happen in the following clip shared by YouTube user Scott Lawrence – Scott explains that the meet was arranged through GalaxyCon, where fans can pay for one-on-one chats with stars. At first, the actor doesn’t seem to be aware that the meeting has started, and even after a gentle nudge, gestures that he should get a little more game time before jumping into the call. Take a look:
Was he really that engrossed in a game that he didn’t even notice the fan was there, or was it just a comedic bit to get the conversation started? If he was that invested, which game was he playing?
Perhaps we’ll never know, but what we do know is that he’s stuck a ‘Fraser’ label on the back of his console so that everyone knows that it’s his, just like your mum might do with your best school jumper. It’s all quite adorable, really.
