Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Tuesday, March 15, 2021


The eBay listing for a haunted Nintendo Entertainment System (still a whole day left to get your bid in!) is generating lots of chatter.

Am I the only one who had this goofy item bring to mind the “Video Ouija” episode of “Aqua Teen Hunger Force”?

I’m calling bullshit on this one; it’s a hipster prank. Shoot, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Adult Swim marketing team were behind this, in a viral marketing bid.

Besides, if you really want a spooked-out game console, buy an Xbox. Those eerie alien noises that come out of the audio when the thing is sitting idle and disc-less certainly sounds like a candidate for exorcism.

In a related note: I cannot believe it took this long for the above group picture of ATHF to make its debut on this site.
