Famous faces awkwardly pose with a Mr. Destructoid sprite


A couple months back, Holly Green made an adorable Mr. Destructoid Perler bead sprite with the idea that a bunch of industry personnel and other famous Internet celebrities would gladly pose for photos with the little green square, no questions asked. E3 2012 sounded like the perfect time to put that idea to the test.

Armed with the sprite and my iPhone, I scoped in and around the convention hall for prime candidates. Unfortunately, I was unable to take as many pics as I would have liked, and some of the pics I did manage to snap turned came out blurry. Still, enough folks were more than happy to look like dorks for the camera.

It's a small gallery, but it gives you an idea of the kinds of people you'll run into at a large event such as E3.
