1:50 Did they run out of money and just stuck the storyboard in?

Heh.. my brother's Youth Philharmonic went to Seoul on tour and when he came back he told me that Sega Genesis is called Game Boy and I didn't believe him.
Why are they sold as a Samsung product? Was this a way of getting around import taxes?

That's interesting. Panasonic, Goldstar and I think a third did this with the 3DO system, but there was never any 3DO IP, that is to say like a Mario or Sonic IP that basically sold the system. It just seems weird to outsource your mascot along with your system, when your character is what's selling the system everywhere else. It'd basically be like letting Mickey Mouse merchandise be sold at a Six Flags or something.

Korea is a magical place.
Yeah, I've been putting off doing a Teach in Korea (or Japan) program for a good 10 years now; something's always been holding me back, like not in a bad way; they're all good things like family and relationships and friends, but I really really really wanna go do it before I get too old.

North Korean spies were sent to South Korea to bring back as many Mega Drives as possible, so they could use the Blast Processors for military applications.
Shave off Jong Un's head and give him some sunglasses and he'd be a passable Eggman. It all makes sense now.

Sure, making a tiger man explode is impressive, but so is delivering three quarters of a giant lizard to the afterlife. That lizard's spirit will never be whole.
Gramatically, I expected the Astro Boy ripoff to explode.

The cartoony bits are amazing, but as an old game nerd, I'm most amused by them using Super Thunder Blade to show off the Genesis. No newcomer could play that lousy thing for more than three seconds without crashing.
