‘bad buy’ by Billie Eilish took 2019 by storm, generating memes, winning Grammys, and closer to home, topping triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2019. Now its popularity could skyrocket again, following the upload of an amazing crossover with hugely popular Nintendo Switch game Animal Crossing.

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, sales of the game have been off the charts, with Animal Crossing allowing for plenty of social interaction with friends and strangers while keeping social distancing measures in mind. It’s almost impossible to get your hands on a Switch as well!

YouTuber ‘Girlfriend Reviews’ has now created her own parody of ‘bad guy’, appropriately titled ‘Bass Guy’. “It’s quarantine time and we’re going crazy so we made something stupid please enjoy this song parody,” she posted on Twitter.

So far, the clip has close to 600,000 views.

The lyrics are pretty perfect too, summing up everything the game is all about (including being perpetually in debut to that damned racoon Tom Nook!!!).

Check out a few of them here:

“Cuz I’m the bass guy / Always fishing trash guy / Pretty crappy catch guy / Nintendo please patch guy,

“I’ve had enough of the sea bass /  Rivers could be where I get cash /  Lookin for something worth my time / Barely paid nook a dime.”

It’s been so popular that a fan has submitted some pretty dope fan art of the crossover song.

Eilish has been keeping busy during quarantine as well. She appeared on Elton John’s Living Room For America recently, and will also perform for a special live television event organised by the World Health Organisation titled ‘One World: Together At Home’.

The lineup includes Eilish, her brother FINNEAS, as well as Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, plus Eddie Vedder, Paul McCartney, Elton John and many more.

In March, she unveiled a visual that addressed the body-shaming and policing she has experienced over the course of her career.

We also heard earlier in 2020 that she is working on her next album. Let’s hope ‘Bass Guy’ makes the final cut!
