Five video game characters who would serve at Coachella
Last weekend saw the first of two Coachella weekends, as just about every celebrity on Instagram’s feed around the world reminds us. The California festival was headlined by Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, Swedish House Mafia and The Weeknd, with supporting performances from Phoebe Bridgers, Megan Thee Stallion, Kim Petras, Olivia O’Brien, Joji, Brockhampton, Disclosure, Orville Peck and more. others. more, but it’s almost secondary. Coachella may be a music festival, but it can often feel more like an interactive selfie backdrop with optional music playing in the background, especially for VIPs with their private pools. So today we’re going to see which video game characters may have gone to the festival, if not to perform, then definitely to pose.
Aerith – Final Fantasy 7
Coachella’s resident flower queen is Vanessa Hudgens, who helped popularize the festival’s now-iconic flower crown look. If you don’t know who Vanessa Hudgens is, I’m sorry but there will be a lot of references here that you don’t understand. Are you sure you want to click on it? Either way, Aerith is clearly the flower queen of the video game space, so a perfect fit for the au natural vibes of Coachella. Aerith’s job as a flower seller, her deep connection to nature, and the fact that flowers play a key symbolic role throughout Final Fantasy 7 make her the obvious choice as the Flower Queen. Don’t expect to see her walking around in her underwear like Chloe Cherry or Bretman Rock. Sabrina Carpenter, Peyton List and Kathryn Newton seem to over her speed.
Tsareena – Pokemon
If Aerith is a flower queen, then Tsareena is a flower goddess. The haughtiest Pokemon is fully geared up for that classic Coachella look, and its vinyl thigh-high boots give the outfit an extra edge. She might start having fun with Camila Mendes and Lili Reinhart, but expect to see her hanging out all night long with Nikita Dragun and Bella Poarch by the end of the weekend — she might even end up with bangs hair. rainbow tiger at the end of this.
Sylvain – Fire Emblem: Three Houses
Coachella isn’t just pretty women wearing flower crowns, it’s also fuckboys. Lots and lots of fuckboys. Harry Styles is arguably Sylvain’s personal hero due to his level of fuckboyery, and expect to see a very shirtless Sylvain circulating around Indio, Cali throughout the festivities. Strangely, Claude looks like the biggest fuckboy in Fire Emblem, but he’s more of a lovable himbo. Lots of the ones at Coachella too, but the fuckboys are more emblematic of what Coachella is.
Animal Crossing New Horizons Ankha
Coachella is the holy grail for influencers, and Ankha feels like the game’s answer to Abby Roberts. All pretentious villagers have the right temperament to fit in at Coachella, but Ankha seems like the best choice for several reasons. On the one hand, she looks the part. Her makeup still has the sharpest Team Maddie winged eyeliner, while her over-the-top body jewelry fits perfectly at Coachella. Also, we all know that Ankha loves TikTok. She’ll get a few reels of herself at Billie Eilish, but she’s definitely here for Bella Thorne’s VIP party and Jordyn Jones’ pool. If you don’t know who these people are, congratulations on reading this far, Coachella really doesn’t seem to be your thing. Fair play.
Mario – Super Mario Bros.
Mushrooms are very popular at Coachella, I hear. I hope those of you unfamiliar with Coachella thought it was worth sticking around for this joke.
