In Japan, there is an infamous gay porno called A Midsummer Night's Lewd Dream. The flick has spawned seemingly endless memes online in Japan. It appears like one of its stars is in the Nintendo Switch's Photo Album set-up screen.
As Know Your Meme explains, A Midsummer's Night Lewd Dream has often long been ridiculed online in Japan for its ridiculous, over-the-top acting. Even now, the film's characters still pop up online in memes.
One of said characters is known as "GO," which has morphed into a "GO Is GOD" meme (in Japanese "GOは神" or "GO wa kami").
This is GO.
And here are some "GO Is GOD" memes.

So earlier today, when people in Japan were setting up their Nintendo Switches, some folks noticed a familiar face.
That's right. GO.

See how the comparisons line up? Pretty darn close.

This gag cameo (?) isn't Japan-only. Check out the English language Photo Album set up page.
If this wasn't on accident, someone at Nintendo sure has a subversive sense of humour.
