Tbh i would have thought people would be more interested in the real thing, rather than something that isn't even real. In fact it's not even supposed to be a real human! I guess there's no accounting for taste. The real thing can be seen easily online, in far less time than it takes to scrutinise split second frame after frame shots of pixels.
But this is something we didn't expect to see in a NINTENDO game. The real thing is better and easier to find, but that's something we expect to see nowadays.
