Totally Awesome Video Games: Joystick intro

BBG found this great video of the beginning of Joysticks, an arcade-themed movie from back in the heyday of Donkey Kong. There’s a bit of butt waggling in there, so be warned.

These kinds of movies – essentially vehicles for dying stars – probably defined my childhood summers. Hard Bodies was my Skinemax and Cloak & Dagger enthused me so much that I probably learned to program just to make secret login systems for my Atari 800XL. Good times.
