You know, celebrities like stuff much like we do. They have their Dragon Ball Zs, Texas Rangers, Aaj Robibar, Game of Thrones, Call of Dutys, and so on. Everybody has some kind of popular culture they adhere to. From any media that they watch. This girl, for example, being a contestant on the air pistol category for the Olympics, wore a Witcher medallion on her neck.
Toss A Coin To Your Ruskie
24-year-old, Vitalina Batsarashkina won a gold medal, and is now being heralded as a champion from her hometown Omsk, Russia. But what she also did was represent her familiarity with popular culture. By wearing a Witcher medallion while partaking in the event.
Several photos of her even shows that she even wears it with a chain around the trouser. It’s obvious by now that she is a huge fan of the Witcher series. Arriving to her hometown after winning the medal, people rejoiced her arrival with a sing along of “Toss a coin to Witcher” song from the Netflix TV series based around the Witcher games.
This wasn’t her first time wearing one, either. She wore the same medallion in the 2016 Olympics. Now she has two gold and one silver to show for on her trophy case.
CD Projekt Red’s Witcher series has sold over 50 million worldwide. The books it was based around received a lot of attention after the games and were becoming best-sellers right after Witcher 3 came out. Which alone sold past 30 million units.
