In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Watch Some Lunatic Microwave His Wii U Deluxe Set

Posted on Wednesday, November 28 @ 08:35:58 Eastern by


People on the Internet are fucking nuts. That much is perfectly clear, and made apparent daily on sites like Reddit, Youtube, and our very own GameRevolution forums. The weirder the individual, the more they try to come up with a signature of sorts—something that sets them apart from the rest of the weirdos.

This guy, dOvetastic or something or other, made his name by microwaving expensive electronics on Youtube. Blending stuff is just sooooo 2011.

This time, he's taken a brand new Wii U Deluxe set—console, GamePad, and power brick—and zapped it at 60Hz for a total of 289,174,443.07 microseconds to be exact. The end result is a goopy, plasticy mess of a Wii U, that he's now listed on eBay to be sold as "art", for a whopping $3, 490.03. Yes, even his Buy it Now price is as weird as he is.

Only seconds into the video, I couldn't stand the guy or his voice, but he quickly won me over with his eccentric personality and genuine enthusiasm for microwaving expensive electronics. My favorite part? When he claims he's made the Wii U even better by melting the GamePad into a old-school console with a "fantastic" "built-in screen".

Note: Mute him when the video gets to 2:37, then turn it back up at 2:57. There's about 20 seconds of uncontrollable screaming when he uses his "Hydro Sonic BoOOOOOOOom Blaster". Kids, don't try this at home, or at least ask your parents for permission first.
