Gamer Recreates Tiger King Main Cast On The Sims 4
Everyone on the planet seems to be obsessed with the Netflix documentary Tiger King.
The bizarre story delves into a wild animal keeper called Joe Exotic and all the twists and turns have left audiences gobsmacked.
It's spawned loads of memes, caused celebrities to dress up like 57-year-old Joe Maldonado-Passage and even lead to a reimagining on The Sims.
One crafty gamer decided to recreate all the main characters from the docu-series on their computer.
Kari Nicole Mckendrick unveiled her beautiful and eerily uncanny creation made on The Sims 4 and people have been blown away.
"Ladies and gentlemen....hold onto your murder contracts. I present to you: The Tiger King!," Kari wrote on Facebook.
The Florida resident gave everyone, from Joe Exotic to Carole Baskin and Joe's husbands John Finlay and Travis Maldonado, the Sims treatment - and the levels of detail are impeccable.
Starting with Joe Exotic and Kari nailed his entire vibe by placing a garish tiger-pain shirt on his body, along with a cowboy hat, his tattoos, piercings, and that signature bleached mullet.
There was even a hint of eyeliner applied to the animal trainer to make the look that much better.

Her reimagining of Carole Baskin, Joe Exotic's arch rival and owner of Big Cat Sanctuary, was also spot on.
The the flowing maxi skirt, the animal-print top, the long blonde hair and even flower crown were all available for Kari to work with.
The gamer also brought Joe Exotic's former husband John Finlay and his late husband Travis Maldonado into the game.
Of course no shirts were required for John Finlay and Kari even managed to skew his teeth, which gathered a lot of attention on the Netflix documentary.
But instead of just creating the characters in The Sims 4, Kari wanted to bring them to life (so to speak) and made them play around in the gameplay.
Kari made the sims play with tigers (which she did by painting dogs like the big cats) and even tried to recreate the three-way marriage of Joe, John and Travis (complete with their bubblegum pink suits).
If you haven't watch the documentary then this will mean nothing to you, but it should only encourage you to see it.
The official Netflix synopsis for Tiger King reads: "A rivalry between big cat eccentrics takes a dark turn when Joe Exotic, a controversial animal park boss, is caught in a murder-for-hire plot in this limited docu-series where the only thing more dangerous than a big cat is its owner."
How could you not want to see that?
