Pretty Fly (For a Kaz Hirai)

Let me preface this by saying I DO NOT have "BIAS" against Sony. This parody song just came from a weird idea while working, and how Sony hasn't had the best image as of late. Kaz Hirai fit really well in the song title, and I just went f...

Conversion of a Board Gamer
