The_Crasher uploaded a Witcher 3 mod called “Donut Geralt,” which gave Geralt a protruding gut. Gameplay of the mod by Bearded_Wonder appeared on YouTube shortly after (shown below)
The video was reposted in several communities, including /r/TheLastOfUs2,ifunny and Gamefaqs, with many celebrating the way the video makes the scene unintentionally comedic. Redditor CaptWrench joked that Fat Geralt should be the /r/TheLastOfUs2 mascot “as he’s the only likable new character in the entire game.” Twitter user @trillmustdie posted a crying laughing emoji about the name (shown below, left). User @zetsubounigga also posted a reaction image to the name (shown below, right).
