Mondays are no fun. No, Mondays just plain suck. But thanks to EA and PopCap this particular Monday sucks a little less than usual.

Promoting Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, which is scheduled to bloom on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in spring 2016, new wallpaper art has been released parodying various game franchises.

So, FIFA ’16 with a little PvZ flavor becomes LEAFA ’16. Halo 5: Guardians becomes Aloe 5: Gardening. Minecraft switches out a letter to grow into Vinecraft. Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst? Nope, now it’s Mirror’s Hedge: Catalyst. Recent E3 2015 darling Unravel even gets in on the gag with an Untangle spoof.

It would be amazing if PopCap actually ran with this idea and designed the game’s costumes and maps around parodies of other franchises. Too bad all of this is just a promotional stunt. But oh well, at least they’re good for a quick laugh.
