Remember our world of Warcraft-loving pal who was so distraught over his WoW account’s cancellation that he tried to shove a remote control up his ass? I think you might. The video has made its way to Japan, where some enterprising soul made the above remix (which is set to the theme song to some Kirby game, apparently). I’m still not sure if the video is real or not, but if it is, this kid’s totally going to kill himself. (Via Giant Bomb)
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.
