The amazing Gia pointed out this video clip at her blog, which I immediately had to steal for my own. See, in Japan there’s a fighting game engine called M.U.G.E.N., which allows people to create their own characters. Someone created food spokepeople Ronald McDonald (named Donald, because why not?) and Col. Sanders, master of the 7-herbs-and-spices fighting style and, in this video, teamed them up to basically beat the living shit out of various anime and videogame characters.
If you’ve ever wanted to see an old man beat someone up with a giant friend chicken leg, then this is the video for you.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
