Last week when Billy Mitchell took back the Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr. world records, mullets parted and American flag ties blew in the wind once again. As soon as I found out about this epic event, I immediately emailed Dennis and we quickly exchanged OMG FTW emails like two teenage girls. Now if you don’t know who Billy Mitchell is and you haven’t seen The King of Kong do yourself a favor and hop on the Googles and the YouTubes and just type in “Donkey Kong World Record.”
It doesn’t take long to see that Billy Mitchell is the man! He looks like a cross between Chuck Norris, David Copperfield, and Billy Mays. Not only does he have the look of a champion but he also has the skills! He is so good at classic arcade games it is ridiculous. I mean he was the first person in the world to score a perfect game at Pacman! That’s 255 levels and 3,333,360 points, Sheesh!
Don’t get me wrong, I can throw down on some Donkey Kong and Ms Pacman, but I will never be as good as Billy Mitchell. Look at me. I’m too old, I don’t have enough playing time under my belt and my hair isn’t nearly as stellar. But luckily, I have bred a challenger that is as equally hungry for competition and kid cuisines. Attached is a very early clip I would say about, one to two days into our training ritual (Eat, Sleep, Ms. Pacman, Homework). Be afraid Billy, be very afraid.
