A Nintendohemian Rhapsody for charity
[Update: Whoops! The actual NES marathon ended yesterday at 3 PM PST, but Pat is still accepting donations through his site until tomorrow.]
Zealous NES collector Pat the NES Punk is holding a Child’s Play charity that runs through tomorrow already ended. The current total sits just above $16K, and he’s offering incentives to donators to make that final push.
At $20K, he was going to release a music video that he and Baldy McBalderson, a.k.a. brentalfloss, collaborated on (with guitar work by Sir Robert Bakker of The Protomen). The goal wasn’t met, but “Nintendohemian Rhapsody” is ready for your eyeballs anyway.
It is a parody of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” obviously, that laments the “Nintendo Hard” challenge of 8-bit games. I think we can all relate to the boys’ plight. Enjoy the vid and donate if you wanna!
