Facepalm of the Day: “Frog, Flattened” or “Real Life Frogger Goes Awry”
Gaming has it’s fair share of bizarre happenings and crazy stories. Every once in a while you come across a really stupid tale involving parental negligence, supreme teen idiocy, or some use of duct tape that would make a grown man cringe. But this story that I came across on Kotaku today is a class in itself.
Short version: dude with buddies discusses playing Frogger in dense traffic across a South California highway; yells “go!”; runs into traffic; gets hit by a Lexus SUV; miraculously survives.
Thank God no one ever tried a real life version of Donkey Kong. “Hey honey, why don’t you hold the video camera while I climb down into the Gorilla pen, hit him in the head with a barrel and then try to climb back out before he can get me?”
