Awww! I wish this April fools joke was not a joke!  This reminds me of that Jaguar multi-cart joke.  I actually believed that was real for awhile.

I know... so uncool. I had nightmares later that night.

 

Do you (USA people) remember how back in the 80s, they had that little thatch-hut shack inside the Toys R' Us? You would grab the little tear-away sheet for the Atari 2600 games and whatever else (Nintendo, etc) and then pay for it at the counter and they would trade the tear-away sheet for the voucher. You would then take that voucher to the shack, and some dude in there would look for the game and hand it to you... and it was like... OMG. I always wondered how that guy fit all those games in the shack. At the time, it felt like it couldn't have been any bigger than say... two port-o-potties next to eachother (not even the handicapped ones), and yet they had stacks and stacks of games for Intellivision, Colecovision, Nintendo, Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Atari XEGM, Master System, and a bunch of other systems... I swear there must be an elevator in those. 

 

Anyway, I used to dream that I would (all ninja-like) break into Toys R' Us from the ceiling... I would remove one of the skylights and repel downward to the shack. I would have a field day, tearing open like 50 boxes of Atari 2600 Jungle Hunt... but it always ended the same... the Toys R' Us was surrounded by cops. Sometimes in the dream, I would stay in there as I contemplated my options, but it always ended the same... I never made it out of there without getting pulled out by the cops...

 

Man...

I remember the old Nickelodeon Toys R Us contests to win like...5 minutes of running around with a shopping cart grabbing everything up.  I used to fantasize about doing that but just going to the video game section and clearing them out.  Just...every NES/SNES game evah in my little cart...
