The Borderlands Creator Thought The Parody Kaz Hirai Twitter Account Was The Real Deal

This is one of those things that could only happen on the internet.

Randy Pitchford, who is best known for creating the Borderlands franchise, made a heart-felt plea to the Parody Kaz Hirai Twitter account, asking that before his time finishes at Sony, that he please make PlayStation and Xbox allies and allow cross-play in order to grow the gaming userbase.

It wasn’t long before a Twitter user corrected him, telling him that this was a parody account. Pitchford laughed it off, saying that he’d been following the Twitter account for years, thinking that Hirai was cooler than he actually was.
