Katamari, Do Your Best!

Your dad, the king of everything.
Your dad, the king of everything.

Most people haven’t heard of my favorite video game . This does not make me cooler than you. It really just means that when I showed up at a costume party dressed as a character from the one game I play (Katamari Damacy! w00t!), I got a lot of funny looks. Whatever.

Production guy Jesse “Badass” Schulz pointed me to a live-action commercial built around Katamari’s brilliant premise.

Here’s the plot of the first version of the game: Your father is the king of the universe, and on a whim, he destroys all the stars. You, a tiny little prince, must push a katamari ball around and collect enough mass to make stars. You start small, picking up paper clips and mice. By the time the credits roll, you can pick up continents.

Just watch the commercial. That will explain it better. It’s really something to see.
