Andre was featured in a number of pre-release promotional materials for the game during its development. Notably, he was one of three main characters who appeared in the First Look Official Gameplay Trailer, where he was shown involved in a love triangle with Ollie Purdue and Sophia Jordan. Andre shares his appearance with one of the default characters in Create a Sim, and appears on the front cover art for The Sims 4.
He can also be found uploaded by SimGuruGraham with a wife named Marie. Andre may of taken her last name as both of them are named Tapas. It was likely Marie was made from Andre using "Play with Genetics" as they look very similar and the household description says "Sometimes when Andre looks at Marie he wonders if he's a bit of a narcissist...".
