Why the Virtual Boy Failed: The Music Video

 |  |  |  |  September 25, 2011


The whole idea of Nintendo’s old Virtual Boy gaming system was loaded with flaws. Not only was the headache-inducing red LED 3D display impossible to watch for prolonged periods, the head-mounted display really wasn’t practical for use anywhere – especially not standing up or moving around.

In this music video by YouTube goofball Nathan J Barnatt, with music by FantomenK, we get to see just how ridiculous the system really was, set to a tune that sounds strangely reminiscent of Bloodhound Gang’s Mammals in chiptune format.

The guys who shot this video are quick to point out that all of the Virtual Boy falldown scenes were shot with a hidden camera, and without any of the stores being in on the joke. Although we’re guessing the part where he gets run over and killed was rehearsed.

Now that I’m done watching that, I need to get back to texting – I’ve got a long walk ahead of me.
