Xbox is leaning heavily towards memes, not only recognizing the fact that its next generation console looks like a refrigerator, but is now giving an Xbox Series X themed refrigerator. There is even an official world premiere video for the kitchen monolith.
Announced via Xbox's official Twitter account the Xbox Series X Fridge is part of a sweepstakes that starts today and ends on November 4, 2020 at 7:00 pm PST.

Microsoft recently sent Snoop Dogg an Xbox Series X cooler for his birthday – as well as a host of other celebrities and influencers – as part of his marketing for the next generation of consoles to come.
The black refrigerator is shaped like the Xbox Series X (or is it the other way around?) And features an Xbox logo lit in the upper left corner, as well as what must be the largest disk drive in the world. The interior is fully lit with green light, why not, right?

Jokes have been circulating about the Xbox Series X and its resemblance to a particular kitchen appliance since it was revealed during the Game Awards in 2019. Microsoft even added an image of "refrigerator to scale" next to one place the Xbox Series X next to a banana.
Microsoft explained in an interview earlier this year that the design is actually to help with cooling not unlike a refrigerator. It seems that the two have more in common than we initially thought.
