DeviantARTist Andrew Golden has created a series of Facebook photos for video game characters that bring the imaginary into the world of social media. The photos are a little scary to look at because these cartoon characters really don't seem like they belong in the real world.
Princess Peach has gone with the classic "duck face" photo, as she poses in the mirror and takes a photo with her phone, which is not very princess-like. Like anyone in a band, it's important to post photos to Facebook in the hopes of making yourself seem cool even though you're really not. This is exactly what Donkey Kong has done with his drum-banging band.
Andrew Golden's collection of Facebook photos for video game characters is truly a reflection of all the typical things humans do to appear awesome using social media.
