Pitfall Beer?!

Recommended Posts

Was browsing through my local regional brews at the grocery store today and came across this!!!! I am not an IPA fan at all, but had to pick it up for display in the game room!

Cool. But David Crane (Pitfall!'s iconic creator) just might want royalties just for the use of the Pitfall! graphics on the can.

 

And while I myself don't drink, in fact I did get a full unopened can of Rockstar as a gift back in 2002 when I played a show as The Heavy Metal Warrior with my old hardcore/thrash band S.M.F. as I came out with our first CD in 4 years (SchizoTron) just months before, in which (the show not the CD, which sold a few hundred) drew only less than 100 people despite all the marketing we did leading up to that show, we even made it a festival, "CoveFest '02 - The Quest For Berg", on August 31, 2002 (aggressive newspaper coverage, promo posters at the local record store Quimper Sound Records here in Port Townsend, handing out TONS of flyers, etc.) I was SO disappointed with the fact we actually had to pay the bands (Necrophilist from Port Angeles, Dorgan Onor from Seattle/Everett, and Shelley's Wrist here in Port Townsend) out of our own pockets due to the poor turnout we had. It would lead to the downfall of both my comeback (after 4 years since out last CD, ...and Proud of It) and eventually the band itself (November 2002 we broke up). THAT'S show biz for you.

 

I still do have their demo CD-Rs they made then so I could check them out before they played here, they are HEAVY!!!

 

BTW, I no longer have that can, nor did I ever drink it (I'm just not an energy drink kinda guy), but back then I considered that to be a collector's item due to it marking my first concert since we came back..... oh what could've been!!! :)

It's because of my meds (reaction to alcohol might really f*** me up BIG-TIME), plus I'm just not a drinker, not since my first date with my former Love Of My Life, Alice Yantz in April 1989 (I was 22 she was 29 at that time, we just fell for each other then), and never again, period, especially since I do drive (got my first license in February 1999, I was 32 years old at that time).

David Crane may wish to have royalties, but Activision owns the rights to Pitfall, not David Crane.

AFAIK, this product has already been reported to Activision. :ponder:

So, what you're saying is:  Grab them while you can, so once they're pulled off the shelf, you can sell them on Ebay for $1,000,000/can, right?  :D

I looked into ordering a 4-pack...but it looks like they only deliver locally (MN) and I live in DE.  :(  Otherwise, I would have picked it up for my game room as well.

Good info, there has to be some AA users that live in the MN area that will buy this up before Falling Knife gets a cease and desist.

Better not drink too much beer before you're trying to grab jungle vines and jump ponds full of crocodiles.

-> Stupid product. :)

Just remember this is not the same Activision that we all know and love. This is new Activision that would sell its mother for a supply drop in COD.

Believe it or not, there are quite a bunch of old school programmers at Activision in higher up positions now.
