Scott Scott Revolution
Back in the spring of 2000, my wife and I stopped off for a quick round of mini-golf during our vacation in California (and I kicked her butt, if I remember correctly). While we were selecting our putters -- something I take very seriously -- we spotted a kid about 12 years old busting a move on one of those Dance Dance Revolution games. It was the first time either of us had seen it, and we both busted out laughing. I'd never seen something so funny -- although my wife's mini-golf skills came close.
Well, now it's four years later, and those machines are everywhere. And I still find them just as funny. Which is why I was happy when I was able to record my friend Scott on one at lunch today (the Nathan's we went to has an arcade, in addition to tasty hot dog treats). The resulting video, while perhaps not as hysterical as that 12-year-old in California, is still rather amusing.Posted by Kevin at August 3, 2004 04:21 PM
