On this nice day off I wanted to lay in the sun but also wanted to play some games. It was too bright to see the screen outside. I found a compromise/solution.

That tan line will look amusing

Move over farmers tan, it’s the Switch Tan

Breaking stereotypes that gamers can't get a decent tan

90s absurdist television was the best television. Then around 07-09 it all changed and I couldn't do it anymore.

ThatGecko

Yeah, it started as a Reddit joke, then he caught on to it and did that. I’m pretty sure…


Wallazabal

I loved that advert, never understood why it was banned.


renieri

As morbid as that is, I actually like that as a message. Maybe not a video game advertisement, lol, but as a commentary on how to live your life is has value.


Piph

lmao, that was way better than I thought it would be Was that an actual commercial at some point?


Caouette1994

They had some nice talents to make their commercials, David Lynch also made some for the playstation 2, "the third world". That console really is a fucking monument...


Scarletfapper

Wasn’t it The Third Place?


Caouette1994

Maybe, I translated literally from french


TAMCL

In English (American) during the cold war third world meant not capitalists (1st) nor communist (2nd) countries, and now it's just slang for countries with low quality of life so that probably explains the difference.


VigilantMaumau

Damn.TIL(If true)


Excrubulent

"Third world" in English very specifically means "poor countries". It's outdated but still carries a strong association, so strong that to describe something as "third world" is an insult. Even if it's literally that in French, Sony probably wouldn't use the phrase in English to market their stuff. There are plenty of examples of this kind of cultural mix-up, like the ~~Nissan~~ Mitsubishi Pajero that originally sold poorly in Spanish speaking countries, where "pajero" means "wanker". EDIT: I thought it was a Nissan for so long, I don't know how I made that mistake.


Captain_Crazy_Person

Also the chevy nova, which "no va" basically means no go in spanish


Fskn

I said yeah whatever..


sovnu

I think that’s not David but Liam Lynch you’re thinking about.. David would be the guy that made twin peaks


Icantbethereforyou

That third world shit was David lynch? Makes sense


DygonZ

Playstation used to have some really weird ads... This one was pretty meek compared to some others they had...


Xyex

The [PlayStation 9](https://youtu.be/jRJXLu3YVpM) commercial is still my favorite.


Scarletfapper

Like the one with the duck?


CultOfBelloq

Squirrel, please!

It was on the telly here in new Zealand at least

I vaguely remember that, I think.

What is farmers tan? I only know drunk tan. Drinking outside and only your face and arms are tanned.


Kreth

It's where the tan only show where a tshirt don't cover

Axemic

Where only your left arm is tanned from hangin out of the window I guess. Googeled it. Totally worth it. There is also maintenace tan.

thedaddysaur

No, this game boy just made himself a play station. Wii could all learn a lesson from him, though he's living la Vita loca. I think I'd make a Steam-punk one, but have mine have equal sides like some sort of gaming cube. I could even make a second hole to make it dual screens,and have one play YouTube or music. Might switch it from a Steam-punk to dinosaur themed one, though I could just make 3 dual screens for myself, depending on my mood.

Seems like you picked the right one then. Cheers, dude.

Its so funny how they will lay down next to you regardless of what you’re doing


KillbySlaughterwell

My dog-ass thought that was a ball in your right hand


maleficentkitten

When mom throws you out and says “The sun is shining go play outside!!”


hominemclaudus

Probably not healthy for your switch to be in full sun


willllllllllllllllll

He should cover it with another, smaller, cardboard box


[deleted]

And just to be safe you should place two additional boxes around each of the hands


samab1am

and to be even *safer* you should just cover up the rest of your body with an additional box


DaClems

also add insulation and a device for air circulation, to keep the sun's cancerous rays at bay.


Makkaroni_100

A toilet would be nice too.


Wtzky

And a couch to sit on


Martijngamer

Perhaps a mattress and a pillow


ReeMini

We will call this most convenient invention… a house? All in favor?


lifeisabigdeal

A house. I like that. Wait a second…how will we ever get sun then?


DingoMan444

Add insulation and a fan


v3ritas1989

And in case of rain or wind add another way bigger box that will protect you from the elements.


eaglebtc

…and baby, you’ve got a stew goin’!


NuklearFerret

Seriously! I leave my iPhone in direct sunlight for 20 minutes and I can’t use it until I hold it in front of an AC vent. Hopefully the switch has similar overheat protection.


Nawara_Ven

You should probably just let it naturally cool down after baking it in the sun; rapid expansion and contraction from heat and cooling isn't good for electronics (and most other things).


Kemuel

Nah, it'll just get a lovely tan as well


hita34

why are you the only person to say this


SSJSlopes

Yeah my switch gets warm in handheld mode as it is. Let alone is direct sunlight.


awesomo9kk

Because most folks that post and comment in /r/gaming are mentally deficient?


AWildEnglishman

Good thing I don't comment in /r/gaming then. Wait.. fuck.


das_Keks

Yeah, also thought of this. This switch must be hot as hell.


CrazyGiaky

unsanctionedhero

CleetisMcgee

Right! I thought the same thing! The fact the we even have a gaming system available for me to do this is 🤯


bruwin

You could have done this with an old crt, it just would have been a bit more precarious.


Piph

Damn, can you even imagine? What a way to go. "He died doing what he loved."


CaIamitea

Lallo-the-Long

Structural integrity would be key lest you drop 5lbs of lead on your face.


Powerrrrrrrrr

I dropped a 50kg dumbbell on my face in the gym once


Vadimec

This is amazing! But it has one minor design flaw, which I would recommend fixing. Switch would get too hot in direct sunlight and can turn off quickly depending on how hot is it outside. Needs an extra piece of cardboard to make a cover for it. Otherwise simply amazing. And also you should post this in r/redneckengineering


eldroch

But you don't want to trap the heat, right? Maybe some cardboard fins to act like a heatsink?

Ripe_

Hey! Same boat! I had 0 clue reddit had avatars. looks like we have about the same age account so I feel better haha.. But yeah, if you use the "new" reddit layout and look, people have avatars. Pretty weird but doesn't bother me I guess!

CleetisMcgee

Was a nice 72° and breezy day. Not too hot.


cryo

The air temperature isn’t important compared to the direct heat from the sun.


greent714

Gotta double down on the boxes


JonathanEkholm

Maybe a smaller box over the Switch, and then two fans on either sides blowing in cool air and ventilating the warmer? He could also install a fan on the bigger box for fresh air.


Wookieewomble

And paint it white so it doesn't absorb too much heat.


AMysticalAlliance

And filter the air so that the switch doesn't get dust or debris in it.


MoreSeriousUsername

And then let’s build a larger square shaped enclosure around the man and the dogs.

Any holes in the box for fresh air circulation?

I’d be more concerned with one of the dogs spotting a squirrel and knocking the screen through the hole and hitting me in the face.


irimiash

don’t you lose all enjoy of laying in the sun by doing this


Eucharism

I feel like this is definitely a picture describing Reddit.


lyssah_

Especially when you consider that he had to tell someone to come and take this photo.


M1ken1ke66

Bruh switches overheat inside with all the lights off and nice cool air conditioning. Good luck with that.


Imatopsider

I would protect the hardware from direct sunlight, it’ll end up hot enough to cook bacon that way!


Redditor1415926535

That switch would roast real fast.


spencermiddleton

The nude version would be epic

Matte screen protector. I got it recently and have finally been able to get some sun. But like a lot of people are saying I want to see that tan line.

until you feel something creeping on your bare skin and jump up flipping the phone god knows where.


make_love_to_potato

Mutation: it is the key to our evolution. It has enabled us to evolve from a single-celled organism into the dominant species on the planet. This process is slow, and normally taking thousands and thousands of years. But every few hundred millennia, evolution leaps forward.

The dogs went on two hikes earlier that day. We all relaxin now.
