This ad for Mortal Kombat was apparently banned in Britian. I was never a huge fan of the game and it more or less signaled the death of arcade games I enjoyed. After MK came out, everything was fighting games and I could never advance beyond button mashing. I gave up even trying when one day an 8-year old kicked my ass and then proceeded to tell me how I should have used the secret death combo super smash or whatever the hell it was. All I could think of was that I could take him in a fist fight any day.
Not nearly as cool as the idea for segway jousting, but I guess segway polo is sorta interesting. I kept waiting for someone to get clocked with one of the poles but no such luck.
It's a Wonderful Internet, people. I'm not quite sure this will become a yearly classic, but I thought it was pretty spiffy. I ecspecially like the whole popup book-like features. It gives it that nice antiquated feel.
It's probaly a bit disturbing that my first thought was that I'd like to take this car launcher in front of the various homes of people I don't like and launch honda civics at them. I imagine it might be quite a surprise to have someone shoot a car at you and have it come through your 2nd floor bedroom window. Man...I really want one of these now.
Alrighty, I've got more but I figured that was more than enough. Those of you without broadband are proably pissy enough as it is.
