Behold the Magnificently Awkward Atari Strap-On Swordfighting Game

Behold the Magnificently Awkward Atari Strap-On Swordfighting Game

image

It's time to strap large black phallic objects to your crotch and parry, parry, thrust!

There's no real way to ease into this story, so here goes: Swordfight is a real-life game in which participants hook classic Atari joysticks up to a harness generally reserved for sex toys. Once clad in their S&M-esque getup - complete with hands shackled behind their backs - players take to the streets and begin jousting. With their strap-on Atari devices. Yes, in public.

The stated objective, according to the official website-slash-tumblr-photoblog is to push the other players' big red buttons with your long and firm joystick before they do the same to you. The player with the most points wins.

The unstated objective, of course, seems to be to make things as embarrassing as possible for pretty much anyone involved, including passersby watching the phallus duels, me for writing this article, and you for reading it.

That said, as awkward as this is, it's the hilariously genius kind of awkward. And really, is there any better kind?

Check out more photos, a video, and even DIY directions (!) here.

See, THIS is why Atari consoles went under:
No rumble packs! >)

Haha, that's brilliant! This needs to be a Wii game, now!

Well that sounds rather fun.

Well I guess this gives a new meaning to...
*slips on shades*
Crossing swords.

I've just witnessed...

*shades*

a cockfight.

This new stunt will get the same response from me that "planking" will:

You have been warned.

God I hope this doesn't become the next "thing" on the internet.

As if joysticks needed more help to be related to....."joysticks".

HAHA, hilarious. Who else entered this thread expecting someth---

I know, I'm not sure how I should react to this exactly. D:

I thought it was gonna be something silly... not this though.

I make it a point to never play a game or sport that requires me to strap something on top of my protective cup.

I'm not sure if this is politically correct or not, but is "gay" an appropriate response?

All of the links are to the same page >.<

So fracked up I can't think of anything else to comment.

I'm dying over here. That now by public mandate belongs in the drunk Olympics.

A John Funk Story...Yes!

They could make millions of views in a video format on youtube.
