PUNCH-OUT!! Trailer

Nothing I say can prepare you for how cool this is:

This was done for some video contest sponsored by Nintendo. I think it's one of the most brilliant videos ever put on YouTube. Oh yeah, and "Little Mac" has his own Myspace page, too!

If only Mike Tyson had behaved himself and not got his name stripped-off the Punch-Out game...

EDIT 6/21/2007 2:00 a.m. EST: The contest was something called Nintendo Short Cuts Showcase... and Punch-Out!! didn't win anything! But it's sure a huge hit on YouTube.

Amazing that a four-and-a-half minute short film about a Nintendo game produced by a gang of good friends would be something that's much more fun to watch than the full-length Super Mario Bros. movie done by a major studio.

I remember the Mike Tyson Punchout nintendo game. Me and Brother had it. He managed to beat Tyson. I only managed to get up to Tyson. I could never beat him.

Tyson was VERY tough to beat!! One punch from him and you went down. You only got to recover once. It was all in the timing: if you paid attention to his cues like his eyes etc. then you could punch him at the right time, the EXACT number of times. After that it's all basically wearing him down.

I think the worst boxer that I ever faced in Punch Out was Great Tiger. The first time he did that "tiger punch" thing I was like "WHOA...!!!" It took me a week to figure out how to counter him.
