Insert Coin to Continue Origin Story
AN OPEN LETTER TO ELON MUSK TO MAKE AN ARCADE GAME-INSPIRED CAR
Dear Elon Musk,
We know you’re busy recording terrible EDM songs and getting high with Joe Rogan, but we were wondering if you could take a teensy bit of time out of your schedule to work on a special project for us: An arcade game inspired car. (Or “carcade,” if you will.)
Here’s all the ideas we have so far:
The car is coin-operated, not gas operated. So every time it dies, an “insert coin to continue” screen appears on the windshield. And there’s one of those red 25¢ slots.
The horn has five options: Pac-Man’s Wakka Wakka, Mario’s power up noise, Ryu’s “HADOUKEN!,” the dog laugh from Duck Hunt and Mega Man's death sound.
A trunk that shoots green shells and red shells, but not blue shells, because blue shells were created by The Devil
Looks just like the roofless red Ferrari Testarossa Spider from Outrun and operates just like the cars in San Francisco Rush
Passengers can play Tetris on the side windows, Donkey Kong on the seat backs, Space Invaders on the dashboard, and The House Of The Dead on the windshield, don’t worry, the car drives itself -- LIKE ALL CARS SHOULD RIGHT NOW WTF
Interior smells like sweat, soda, particleboard, popcorn, burnt pizza and stale cigarette smoke
Car only starts for drivers wearing Insert Coin to Continue blue light filter glasses.
We thought you’d be the perfect person for this, Musky, because you make electric cars and send them into space as a statement against how expensive parking lots are. Anyways, make it, because we all bought your flamethrowers and we’re surrounding your house.
K THX BYE,
All employees at goodr
P.S. Stop making music
