Friends Hack ‘Scott Pilgrim’ Game to Animate the Best Wedding Gift Ever [Video]
For anyone who has read (or played the video game version of, or watched the movie adaptation of) Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim, it’s difficult to wrap the tale without feeling good about love… and video games, and music, and cartoons. Inspired by this associated goodness, friends Simon Lai, Alex Ha, Charles Murakami, Ken Liu and Conrad Seto created an animated wedding gift celebrating Simon and Pearl Lai’s nuptials using hacked portions of Ubisoft’s Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World: The Game along with original animation. Simon and Pearl fortunately don’t have to face an army of evil exes to be together in the video, although they do face zombies, ninjas and other menaces on their way to matrimony. Level up by watching the lovebirds’ SP-themed adventure after the cut.
Somehow, after seeing this video, I can’t work out whether the couple’s real-life wedding sans 16-bit style magical realism and hyper violence was a relief or a mild disappointment for them. Either way, this video is very well done and a much more exciting gift than a toaster oven.
