The above image is what GameStop is offering the winner of its Super Smash Bros. Brawl tournament. As you can see, it is the worst thing in the world. It doesn’t even have anything to do with Brawl, save for the vague and tenuous hint that the golden man in his underwear might possibly be about to engage in combat of some sort. That, or he’s about to crap his unnecessarily tight shorts because he’s realized he’s a really, really bad trophy. Also, why does he look like Jimmy Osmond!?
Without hyperbole I can say without a shadow of a doubt that this is the single worst thing I have ever seen in my entire life and that it is worse than anything Chris Benoit ever did. Somehow though, GameStop is not only expecting people to desire this lump of rubbish, but to also be proud of possessing it and display it in public as a testament to becoming the “local legend of wreckage.”
I expect Jonathan Holmes to bring this monstrosity to the Destructoid camp anon. Then we can burn the thing to cinders.
