General Horse and the Package of Doom

You can’t say that this game exactly breathes polish, and so there’s little surprise the first aid kit is really a pouch of emergency rösti:

Prey

In space, no one can hear you scream, but the fabricators at least make Swiss chocolate you can stuff your mouth with to dampen the noise:

I wonder what the handle is for. Chocolate isn’t that heavy. Maybe the thing has a built-in cooling system.

This Pinball Madness technician

This pinball technician is probably from Switzerland, and since he is working abroad in California, USA, he likes to demonstrate his patriotism by wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the Swiss Cross:

That way visitors know that if they want the best technician, they should call the Swiss technician.

YouTube’s “thanks, doc” emoji

It makes sense that the Californians working at Google don’t know better, but since Google also has an R&D center in Zürich, I did expect them to know that this:

does not mean “thanks, doc”, but “I love Switzerland”. Or alternatively, “this organ for use in Switzerland only”.

Ministry of Broadcast

This guy lives in a dystopian society, yet he has a box of Swiss pralinés on his shelf. I call shenanigans.

Wasteland 2

Surely this can’t be a realistic depiction of a wasteland when you still have huge boxes of Swiss chocolate just lying around:

Swiss chocolate (or fondue) next to a shack in the desert

It’s a bit sad that someone must have already eaten all the chocolate out of this particular one, since all it contained was chocolate-unrelated medical items. But perhaps the previous owner simply finished off the chocolate and thought it would be a good idea to store first aid kits in the box instead of throwing it away. Resourceful, and in line with the whole post-apocalyptic theme.

Pokémon GO Safari Montréal

At this happening, Nintendo and Niantic seem to have included small booths selling Swiss traditional goods such as carvings of cows:

Only on closer inspection of the map do we realize that we’ve been duped: Those aren’t Swiss pavillions, they’re just mislabeled first aid tents.

Add insult to injury that this is all happening in Parc Jean-Drapeau. Drapeau! Get it?

Mars: War Logs

Oh boy, they even smuggled our chocolate up to Mars in huge boxes:

Martian chocolate is probably hard to cultivate, given the climate.

Gregory Horror Show

This PS2 classic has Swiss lizard nurses:

See what’s wrong with that picture? Yeah, it’s the heart on her little hat. Swiss people have no heart. There’s just laundered dictator money where the heart’s supposed to be.

Eurogamer

Eurogamer’s latest article proudly displays the Swiss national emblem:

Which is actually quite unfortunate, since it’s not about the Swiss gaming industry at all but about the unrelated topic of health items in games.

Shame on you, Eurogamer, you should know Europe better than that.
