The level of creativity people show off in Animal Crossing: New Horizons never ceases to impress.

We’ve seen players recreate Revenge of the Siththe entire Sinnoh map from Pokemon Diamond & Pearl, and even early 2000s music videos in the game. There appears to be no limit on what players can achieve in the game given enough time and creativity.

This week, we saw an amazing interpretation of The Wizard of Oz brought to life in the social simulation game.

Redditor Wilbos_World posted their interpretation of the 1939 film that shows off a twee version of Dorothy herself, her Kansas homestead, the hurricane that transports her to the land of Oz, and – of course – the iconic yellow brick road.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ art style lends itself to the cute/creepy vibe that’s made the movie so enduring over the past 80 years, and the editing of the video is enough to bring a smile to even the most heartless tin man.
