A video for Nintendo Switch out of Germany is probably one of the most realistic advertisements we’ve seen for the console hybrid yet.

Posted on the German Nintendo Switch Facebook page, (thanks redditor RCane98),the first thing you see is a man sitting on a toilet playing what looks like Mario Kart 8.

Gone are the days when a table or basket was the coveted spot for newspapers, magazines and catalogs in the bathroom. Instead of reading material, the most important room in the house is now one of the main areas folks play around with their tablets and phones. Gross, but true.

It’s nice to see Nintendo has a sense of humor regarding such things.

You’ll be able to use your very own Nintendo Switch in the bathroom when it releases on March 3.
