When Nintendo’s Animal Crossing was released early this year, gamers-slash-fans have since passionately recreated iconic moments from their different favorite TV shows and video games. This time, Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s (B99) popular “I Want It that Way” scene has been translated into the New Horizons space.
Animal Crossing user dclemente put her heart into capturing the American sitcom opening episode. In the scene, Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) asks the suspects to sing the Backstreet Boys’s popular pop song. This is to weed out the suspect of the crime. Later, Peralta got a little into the song and joined them. Causing him to almost forget that they are doing an investigation for a murder case.
Golden Globe winner police comedy show B99 is set in a fictional 99th Precinct of the New York Police Department in Brooklyn. This is following the misadventures and funny punchlines of Jake Peralta and other detectives, headed by the serious Captain Holt.
Meanwhile, redditors “TheHooksters” last 22 May 2020 shared their own version of the opening skit of B99, renaming the show as “Crossing Nine-Nine.” The video features in-game characters as the stars of the said hit sitcom. The post garnered 12.4 upvotes at the time of the writing. In the post, a fan said it should turn into “Nooklyn 99,” recreating the different episodes of the scene.
