‘My uncle works for Nintendo’
Here’s a great story from Duncan Fyfe of Campo Santo about a mysterious poster on an online forum claiming insider knowledge about its game, Firewatch:
The same general lie has been around forever. The story of the girlfriend or boyfriend your friends can never meet, because they go to another school”Š—”Šit’s basically the same thing. (“I was living in Colorado and actually had a Canadian girlfriend, and nobody believed me,” claims Campo Santo’s Nels Anderson.)
There has never actually been a real Uncle from Nintendo. Or has there?
The solution to the mystery is hilarious.
