The gents behind the Guile’s theme a capella rendition are back with their version of the Pok?mon Red/Blue theme, along with a video that makes the endeavor even nerdier than a capella version of the Pok?mon Red/Blue theme already is. But the real reason I’m showing this video to you is so that you also have to have the terrifying image of Pikachu with lips seared into your retinas. I don’t think I should be the only nerd unable to sleep tonight. (My DKR review will be up next, fyi).
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.
