Real-life 8-bit Donkey Kong played by several very annoying Americans

Gaming, YouTube Video of the Day

Who doesn’t love fanboys, when they’re so adept at playing out video games in real life? Famous videos of the past include real-life Mario, real-life Tetris and real-life Sonic the Hedgehog, but now we can add Donkey Kong to the list also.

I wish this real-life 8-bit video had been done by someone other than several very annoying Jackass-inspired Americans, though – might I suggest watching the video with the sound turned off? Unless you like ape-like laughter infiltrating your precious ear canals. Still, I wouldn’t mind it being done by a group of people less, err, lairy. There’s a weekend challenge for you, readers!
