A group called Mega64, who specialized in bringing video games to life, usually to prank people, decided to see how a real paperboy would react to such adversity. The answer was, as we could have expected, not good.
Of course, this being real life, the papers were being delivered in the ungodly pitch black of early morning. Paperboys on bicycles have been replaced by union-represented mailmen in a truck who have not quite felt the effects of their morning coffee by that point in the morning.
The gang of Paperboy's enemies begin to crowd the road, blocking the truck's way, and turning the real game into seeing how long he could suppress the urge to run these clowns over.
"Goddammit, do you chodes want to read Family Circus or not?"
Staying true to the game, there was even a ridiculous breakdancer.
Or a confused guy who came on the wrong day for the Mortal Kombat prank.
Rather than start hurling newspapers at his enemies, like a paperboy should, this poor man had to laboriously and lugubriously inch his car through the insanity of a bunch of kids who think dressing up and making YouTube videos in the dark constitutes a hard day's work.
"Hey, why don't you check the classifieds for a real goddamn job?"
