Saints Row: The Third game show goes full length

This isn’t the first we’ve seen of Tim and Eric’s interpretation of Saint Row: The Third”s fictional mascot Professor Genki and his “Japanese” game show. There have been bits and pieces of this thing around for a while, but now, on the eve of the game’s release, we have a full +12 minute episode of Professor Genki’s Super Ethical Reality Climax

Like most of Tim and Eric’s full length stuff, some aspects of the show appear to be intended as comedy, some as tragedy, and others are just gross. The show caused me to laugh out loud a few times, but also fell a general sense nausea couples with sadness over the state of today’s dishonest advertising techniques, sadistic reality shows, and society’s obsession with soulless celebrity icons. 

I hope the actual game comes equipped with the same brand of subversive parody. I guess we’ll find out on the 15th!
