Please take a moment to try to imagine how iconic it would be if a celebrity visited your island in Animal Crossing. Well, that was the case for one lucky fan when Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood wanted to sell some turnips!
Yep, Twitter user @directedbyrian documented the entire experience, and boy, was it epic! For those who don’t know, each day, the price the game is willing to pay for turnips is different on everyone’s island. So when the user, named Jessa, was offered a super high price for the vegetable, she took to Twitter to invite others to come and sell their turnips on her island. Her tweet must have caught Elijah’s eye because he quickly sent her a DM!
“Guys I tweeted my turnip prices and Elijah Wood just came to my island and hung out,” she wrote on Twitter, alongside some snaps from their virtual hang out. “This is the best day in quarantine yet.”

“Would love your dodo code to sell those turnips!” the 39-year-old super star wrote to her in a private message.
He also told her that her island is beautiful! How sweet!
For those who missed it, Elijah isn’t the only celebrity to interact with fans via the Nintendo video game. Earlier this month, Noah Centineo decided to share his To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before costar Ross Butler‘s Animal Crossing code with his 1.5 million followers as a prank!
“I don’t have Animal Crossing… but Ross Butler does, and this is his code,” the actor wrote on Twitter alongside a snap of Ross’ exclusive set of numbers and letters. “He’s been super lonely lately and could use some new friends. Go say hi to him for me.”

Naturally, a bunch of fans quickly put in the code and headed to the 13 Reasons Why star’s island! Unfortunately, only eight people can visit at a time, but Ross shared a snap of him hanging with the eight lucky fans.
“Thanks @noahcent for inviting the world to my island,” he captioned it.

Ross also shared a video to his Instagram Story of him clapping with all the random visitors. “Thanks Noah for all these new friends. Just clapping on my island, making noise, being rambunctious,” he joked. It appeared that things had started out great, but then, things started to get out of hand!
“Alright guys, I just ended the session. Look at all these trampled flowers! Visitors came and they just trampled my garden,” he said in another video. Not cool, people — do not mess with Ross’ flowers!
For those who don’t know, Animal Crossing is an open-ended “social simulation” video game in which players explore and establish a home in a village of anthropomorphic animals. We wonder which star will join in on the fun next!
