Actor Danny Trejo gives a guided tour of his Animal Crossing: New Horizons island in a new recurring segment on screenwriter Gary Whitta's YouTube show, Animal Talking

The first instalment of the new series Danny's Diary with Danny Trejo sees Trejo take Adam Nickerson on a guided tour around his island - where he shows off his favourite spots, talks about his favourite pastimes, and introduces some of his villagers. It's honestly just so lovely. 

The tour begins with a visit to "Muscle Beach", which pays homage to the Muscle Beach Trejo says he used to go to in Venice in LA. Complete with a full set of workout gear and a boom box (which is very important to have), after checking out the beach, Danny then takes Adam to his island's taco stand. 

Trejo also talks about his love of fishing and we get to see a very relatable moment where the actor can't quite land a catch at first - you know how it is: the fish's shadow always seems to move just as you cast a line. And how can you not smile at seeing Trejo release a butterfly from his pocket and joyfully laugh as he watches it flutter away? It's the content I didn't know I needed today. 

Trejo recently appeared as a guest on Whitta's talk show Animal Talking after sharing a selfie and offering up his Dodo code. Elijah Wood also appeared on the episode after the actor visited a fan's island to sell turnips and stole everyone's heart for being such a polite guest. 

I can't wait to see what the rest of this new series with Trejo will bring. If the first episode is anything go by, we're in for more Animal Crossing goodness.

Senior staff writer

I started out writing for the games section of a student-run website as an undergrad, and continued to write about games in my free time during retail and temp jobs for a number of years. Eventually, I earned an MA in magazine journalism at Cardiff University, and soon after got my first official role in the industry as a content editor for Stuff magazine. After writing about all things tech and games-related, I then did a brief stint as a freelancer before I landed my role as a staff writer here at GamesRadar+. Now I get to write features, previews, and reviews, and when I'm not doing that, you can usually find me lost in any one of the Dragon Age or Mass Effect games, tucking into another delightful indie, or drinking far too much tea for my own good.
