The Sims Twitter account took advantage of a hot topic by poking fun at the recent BBC News interview fail.
The fail in question involved a man speaking to BBC from his home, when his toddler daughter and new baby found their way into the room, creating a memorable photobomb that’s taken the Internet by storm.
The Sims’ take on the event is a quick gif showing a young girl dancing behind her dad, who’s obviously in the middle of an important interview. The Tweet includes the phrase: “Dance like no one is watching, even if you’re actually on live TV.”
It seems the recent addition of toddlers to The Sims 4 was good timing for the fun gif. That update, which arrived just a couple months ago, was free for all The Sims 4 players, and popped up shortly after EA announced a Vampire DLC for the game.

This isn’t the first time the team behind The Sims or fans of the franchise have capitalized on pop culture events and interest. The Sims Twitter account takes advantage of many trending hashtags and events that happen around the world, and captures many of the Internet’s most iconic events as they happen.
Additionally, The Sims players have been known to create entertaining moments, such as recreating Seinfield & Friends within The Sims 4, or taking advantage of updates like the Star Wars costumes to create fun, engaging moments within the game.
As for the father in the BBC interview, hopefully he takes such fun-loving jabs by companies like EA in stride. Thanks to the power of the Internet, it seems such things are forever inevitable, and it’s usually best just to laugh along and enjoy the teasing that comes with it.
The Sims 4 is currently available for PC and Mac.
