Real Life Punch Out


[Media: Video]

Punch Out!! is a NES boxing game, and some school did a performance of a couple of standard fights that one would see from the game. The band in the background does an amazing job of recreating the 8-bit sounds, and the actors do a great job of moving just like the animations in the game.

Watching a performance like this brings out the glaring oddness that is common in videogames. What makes sense in a game really doesn't translate to real life very well. Check out the video, it should give you a good laugh even if you're not entirely familiar with the game.
