Donkey Kong Kill Screen t-shirt

Monday, November 10th, 2008

There is a potential Donkey Kong kill screen coming up if anyone is interested.

Anyone who watched The King of Kong will likely remember Brian Kuh doing laps of Funspot informing other players that Steve Liebe was about to reach the final “kill screen” of Donkey Kong. Now his infamous mantra can be purchased on a t-shirt.

Gamer Grub - would you eat this?

Have you ever wished those potato chips weren’t so greasy?

…and came in flavors like Strategy Chocolate?

…in ergonomic packaging?

…and had like, vitamins in them?

…and weren’t actually potato chips at all?

Gamer Grub is the product you have been waiting for.

It will be available in 2009 - presumably for a very short time.

Bad car analogies? John Mayer loves them. After being asked how he feels about “the whole Guitar Hero-game phenomenon” in a recent interview, he responded:

I don’t ever want to be the kind of guy who rails against whatever progress has taken place. But Guitar Hero was devised to bring the guitar-playing experience to the masses without them having to put anything into it. And having done both, there’s nothing like really playing guitar. I mean, what would you rather drive, a Ferrari or one of those amusement-park cars on a track?

I take it you laugh to yourself when you see kids with training wheels on their bike too, John?
