Don't lie — you've looked at how many hours you've put into this game and felt at least a little bit of embarrassment.

While Tom Nook may be swindling you out of millions of bells while exploiting you for free labor, Redd will actually sell you a fake painting that is completely worthless without telling you it's fake. But you'll go back, because buying his paintings is the only way to fill your art gallery.

What does that joke even mean?!

Seriously, the bass could be deleted from the game and no one would miss them.
