Here’s a great viral video from G4TV for those of you who have seen “The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters”
If you haven’t seend King of Kong yet, you have to see it. It really got me excited about making a run at my Donkey Kong high score. King of Kong is a documentary about a couple guys’ attempt to beat each others’ world record high scores in the original Donkey Kong arcade game. There are some “inaccuracies” and some supposed misrepresentation of some of the characters in the film, but overall it is an enteraining movie. If you watch it, make sure you Google some of the more recent information as well as some of the revealing truth behind the movie.
Here are a couple links for more information, or more insight into KOK:
- The King of Kong Official Message Boards – Has some interesting debate on the validity of the movie. Some people are a bit “obsessive”!
- AV Club Billy Mitchell Interview – Great impromptu discussion with Mitchell about the facts of the movie
- TexasGeek.TV King of Kong “Director’s Cut” Clip – Nice video of further Wiebe exploits after Mitchell beat him yet again…
