Videos of smoking Xbox Series X consoles have started to make the rounds online and, well, they’re completely fake. Duh.
Multiple videos online showed the next-gen Xbox console allegedly overheating so badly that plumes of smoke seeped from the top of the console. Thankfully, for those worried about their console becoming a fog machine, these videos were not real.
After multiple people online pointed out that the smoke allegedly emanating from the top of the smoking Xbox Series X consoles looked suspiciously similar to the smoke that comes out of a vape pen, Twitter user Xbox Studio took one for the team and vaped all over their new console.
CANSADO de las FAKE NEWS.

The vaping trick is quite convincing, but is still obviously fake. Now, stop vaping on your Xboxes. Christ.
