Watch some puppets play classic video games

Glove and Boots hit the virtual arcade

Normally, watching videos of other people playing video games is like watching paint dry in terms of entertainment value. But in this case, I'll make an exception. The very funny "Glove and Boots" channel on YouTube are two puppets, and in these two videos they add their humorous commentary while going through some older video games like Mario Bros., Pac-Man, Double Dribble and ExciteBike, to name a few.

Here's the first part:

In part 2, the boys tackle Altered Beast, Splatterhouse, Punch-Out (without Mike Tyson) and Nintendo Ice Hockey. Pure brilliance.

I wouldn't be sad if this became a regular feature from this channel.
