This was indeed quite clever and the community was amused by this too. Now, it seems Xbox has embraced the memes as there is an actual Xbox Series X fridge that was recently unveiled.

An actual Xbox Series X refrigerator exists

Popular YouTuber iJustine recently received a huge shipment from Microsoft. The huge box turned out to be an actual Series X style refrigerator!

The fridge looks strikingly similar to the Series X in terms of its design. Additionally, when it was plugged in, the fridge had a trademark Xbox green interior lighting. Moreover, it also played the Series X startup sound when opened.

This was absolutely crazy considering Microsoft put in all this effort to turn a meme into reality. Take a look at the entire unboxing video below:
