    I just can't watch this without imagining how boring it must have been to film it. :eek:

    Nicely realised though.

    That's wicked! :D As you say though - working it all out would be a mission, and then filming it. Worth it though, I think. :)

    Brilliant! Great to watch but the thing that got me was the sound.

    Brought back vivid memories of a holiday on 12th April 1981 to Guernsey, staying in a little guest house which had a pokey family lounge with a sticky glass topped table-top space invaders game. I spent to whole weekend sat at that table watching TV, drinking Coke from glass bottles (through those really narrow stripped paper straws they did when I was a kid) and discovered that if you lifted the end of the games unit so all the coins slid about it put 999credits on the machine.

    I was a very happy 7year old.:)

    Filmed? Wasn't it created out of pasted-together frames, animation style? It was a tedious job either way, but it looks to me as if a snapshot was all that was required to get started.

    That would have been the easiest thing to do - but regardless on how it was done, the planning involved would be the hardest by far.

    Whoever made that really needs to get laid.

    Sorry, but it had to be said.

    That was awesome.

    Why is it when people produce really great work that obviously took a lot of time...

    You get those people who just try to blast them on "they have too much time" and etc? Get over yourself. Having an idea and the passion behind it produces real satisfaction in life.

    Oh, come on.

    Yeah, in a way it was kinda cool.

    But seriously, there are better ways to spend one's time. Visiting a Mac rumours board, for instance...

    "I got laid once, or at least I'm rather sure I did --- while on the internet. Wait, let me check..."

    *looks up "laid" in Dictionary widget*


    "D'oh, nevermind. I've never been laid." :(
