On July 29th, “Xeksenk” shared a video clip on Bilibili showing how he and his friends performed a Metal Gear Solid style show at the college graduation ceremony.

In the video, Xeksenk was wearing a Solid-Snake-style costume hidden under the iconic cardboard box. After “neutralizing” two enemy soldiers played by his friends, he walked confidently toward the headmaster of the college and claimed his graduation certification.

In the video description, Xeksenk confirmed that Solid Snake is the character that “changed his life” and he just joined Kojima Productions half a year before the ceremony. He said he was planning to show the video to Hideo Kojima personally and observe Kojima’s reaction but had not gotten the chance yet due to the pandemic.
