Xbox is about to Make the Series X Fridge Meme a Real Thing

Published 04/03/2021, 4:15 AM EDT


One of the earliest memes that rose to popularity regarding the launch of the new-gen console from Xbox, was the fridge meme. The community had pointed out multiple times that the Xbox Series X console, in fact, looks like a fridge. The Series X console has earned this comparison due to its shape, which is significantly different from its predecessors. The black-colored console stands tall and frankly looks like a monolith about to trigger human evolution.

However, looks like Microsoft is about to turn this Xbox-fridge idea into a reality once more. Recently, Xbox won against the iconic candy brand Skittles in a brand contest on Twitter. As a result, the company will actually be releasing Series X fridges. Aaron Greenberg, the Xbox Marketing Head, further said that they will be sending the first one to Skittles.

As for the fridge, the company has confirmed that this is not an April Fool’s joke. Neither is this just clickbait. This means that it is happening, folks! Xbox really means to produce and circulate the Series X fridges. However, the company is yet to comment on the availability or the prices for this unique product. But one thing is for sure, this will be one of the most bizarre electronic products to ever exist. This will obviously make it somewhat of a Holy Grail for the community.

On the other hand, the stakes were high on Skittles’ side as well. The company promised to bring back lime-flavored Skittles. This kind of did tip the balances towards it, but Xbox emerged victorious with a close victory in the end. Well, all that is left is to wait for this coveted product to release!
