Americans might be stuck inside self-quarantining for the foreseeable future, but as the weather gets warmer and the days grow longer, people will inevitably need some new bangers for their summer playlists.
Look no further than Animal Crossing’s Isabelle.
The kindly Shih Tzu has many talents and uses within the Animal Crossing universe, and in the series’ latest installment, New Horizons, she reveals herself to be a dynamite vocalist. Several TikTok users have picked up on this fact, including user @maybe.itsmk, who shared a now-viral video of the pupper singing an original composition.
“LMFAOOO HEAR ME OUT THIS LOWKEY SLAPSSS,” @maybe.itsmk wrote of the song. She supplemented the tune with her own ad-libs, including some “yeah”s, “uh”s, and an “Oh, sing it bitch!”
@maybe.itsmk’s video has earned more than 544,000 likes and quickly got incorporated into a myriad of other viral TikTok videos. The song now tracks dozens of imaginary conversations between friends or significant others. One bold TikToker even gave herself bangs (well, she gave her cheap wig bangs) to the sound of Isabelle's serenading.
The average listener might only hear gibberish when listening to Isabelle’s song (not a detriment), but TikTok user @kitkatloli painstakingly interpreted lyrics to the tune.
Here’s Isabelle’s heartwarming message:
When the bubblegum pops
I want you to smile
Remember every good time
We had when skies were gray
Oh, bubblegum dear
Why are you crying?
I’ll never let them take
My bubblegum away
And when the skies are all blue
And all I can think of is you
And the world lights your smile
And shines at the sound of your laugh
And bubblegum dear
I just wanna see you again
It’s hard to deny the sincerity of those lyrics. Isabelle for Song of the Summer 2020.
