Xbox has won Twitter’s first-ever #BestOfTweet Brand Bracket Championship and, after a promise from Xbox’s Aaron Greenberg, will be manufacturing Xbox Series X Mini Fridges for the general public. In this championship fight, Xbox faced off against Skittles and came out on top by only 1% after 341,731 votes. When it came down to the wire, Greenberg attempted to rally Xbox fans by stating that if the company prevailed, real Xbox Series X Mini Fridges would be made.
This is the latest chapter in the Xbox Series X Fridge story, which started when Microsoft compared the size of its next-gen console to that of a refrigerator, perhaps as a reference to those like Niko Partners’ Daniel Ahmad and as an example of why it won this contest. It didn’t stop there: Microsoft sent Snoop Dogg and iJustine an Xbox Series X Fridge and held a sweepstake for fans to win one of these magnificent kitchen appliances inspired by the Xbox Series X.
Greenberg thanked everyone for voting and said that the “first [Xbox Series X Mini Fridge] would be packed with games and headed to our friends @Skittles of course!” \ after the win. Skittles attempted a similar battle cry by promising to bring back lime skittles, but it seems that the allure of an Xbox-shaped fridge won out.
“Congratulations to @Xbox on the win,” Skittles wrote on Twitter. “Definitely a tough one, but a HUGE thanks to all of our friends, family, fans and #mcyt for rallying for SKITTLES. We love you all! (but what are we going to do with all these non-refundable limes we ordered? If only we had a fridge).”
