In Japan, there is an infamous gay porno called A Midsummer Night’s Lewd Dream. The flick has spawned seemingly endless memes online in Japan. It appears like one of its stars is in the Nintendo Switch’s Photo Album set-up screen.

As Know Your Meme explains, A Midsummer’s Night Lewd Dream has often long been ridiculed online in Japan for its ridiculous, over-the-top acting. Even now, the film’s characters still pop up online in memes.

One of said characters is known as “GO,” which has morphed into a “GO Is GOD” meme (in Japanese “GOは神” or “GO wa kami”).
