It’s time to get crunk up in the G-Crizzle hissouuuuuse!
WARNING: Contains adult language!
LOL so bad I really thought “this has to be a parody” XD
Sir, I am offended! How dare you insult Crystal Chronicles in such an ill fashion! I demand an apology for not sharing my opinions!
“Ill” as in bad, or “ill” as in good?
“Ill” as in bad.
More importantly, the heck are you diggin’ so far through the comments for, anyway? o_O
All I can say is “What the hell did I just watch?” If I were one of the people doing this video, I wouldn’t be able to read any of these lines without dying of laughter. This video really takes stupid to a whole new level…
Jeez, and I thought the GameStop video I was forced to watch was terrible.Heh, seeing Mace Griffin brand new. That's funny as hell.
That lady sounds like me trying to talk in slang. Which is exactly why I don't. Great find, Spoony!
Oh God. What am I watching? For sheezie.
Oh no more, this video is so hard to watch because I can't stop laughing-!! I'm not kidding, I especially love the gang-talking lady who applies absolutely no tone to her voice as she does it.
too… much… forced slang.
I think now I understand why the parent company, Movie Gallery, has had to file bankruptcy twice within three years. This is shameful, even for a training video.
Oh dear god make it stop! When will management learn that training videos don't train people just help them realize that the company is run by a bunch of retards trying to look hip. Such as the lady who must have watched hooked on ebonics as a kid.
the zelda lady perfected the sheer retardation of the video, good choice spoony! keep these weird…uhh…”videos” coming
it surprising how scary this is, oh god zelda…anywho actually Game Crazy is quite nice in my state, their not douchebags or anything like at Game Stop and they actually are real human beings! (their not manipulative and naggy or anything kinda like Spoony) strange huh?
Is there anyway you can have “Zelda” in future episodes? Her slang was so utterly stupid I laughed everytime she opened her mouth.
Also; “Well, rap's dead it had a good run.” is one of the funniest lines I heard on in your sketches.
zelda scott sounded like a female version of mr. rogers from the hizzood.
BOOOOO-YAAAAAAA!!! ….that and your laughter in the background sums up the madness.
Someone needs to replace that woman with Mr. T, but with the same audio.
The PS2 has RIDGE RACER! RRRRIIIIIDGE RRRRRRRRRRAAAACCERRRR!!!
That joke about Daikatana? That one nearly made me laugh my ass off. That game sucked SOO BAD!! You had to download patches to get past the first stage.
WTF did I just watched??!!!
THATS how Game Crazy trrained employees? No wonder Hollywood Video's going under….
Well, that and Netflix….
I heart mad gangsta cred!
That Gale chick was fucking STOOOOOONNNNED!!!
“That stuff is krunk!”
I can't tell if they were being serious or parodying a bad training video.
its Crunk not Krunk
I've seen a lot of training videos and I have to admit that if I was hired by this company and was shown this video, I'd quit right then and there. Dear god that was actually painful to watch!
That was amazing! I can't believe that's a training video. You'd be hard pressed to take any of that seriously.
When this lady goes to hell and she asks why, this will be the video they show.
If I applied to GameCrazy and was forced to watch this thing, I would've been kicked out for laughing my ass off at this… crazy woman.
I'd like to know if she ever realized just how offensive she really was.
Duke Nukem Forever!!! Hahahaha!! There was many funny lines in this video. Nice work spoony. But I love that Duke Nukem Forever bit…. That would be like a 56 year pre-order. I am not even sure games will even exists when its released.
And loved the FF crystal chronicles comment. I hate final fantasy 8 , like many other final fantasy games but I loath Crystal chronicles it brings terrible to a new level.
I wonder what kind of porn Gail watches
This video pretty much made fun of itself. The commentary elevated it.
I know that woman playing Zelda just drunk herself into a coma after shooting that sketch and selling out her dignity.
But on the plus side, she DOES teach us a valuable lesson. And that is all of this gangsta bullshit is fucking stupid no matter who says it. Like all fads and forced buzz words, they have no real value whatsoever, and become even more stupid the more you hear it. It's sorta like when you're a small child playing with toys, and then your parents try to show the same enthusiasm, suddenly you realize that it's kinda dumb when adults do it, which makes you then realize that this stuff you liked was actually pretty lame.
Thank you, Zelda, for driving the point home that spewing crap like that is fucking irritating. Now drink deep, Zelda, drink deep and try to forget this ever happened, and hope to God some snarky bastard on the internet doesn't get his hands on this video…
Just when I think I have all the answers, Spoony changes the questions. I could not stop laughing at this video. You really were on a completely different level with this Game Crazy training video. Very funny. Where did you even find this? I hope you do more things like this in the future.
“My 12 year old son likes dragons.”
“You need a PS2 to play racing games!”
Great review Spoony. But I have to say, Zelda stole the show. Peace out dog.
“I regret my purchase!” LOL That Zelda lady was like a scary ghetto Scarlett. O.o
I've got to say, I knew from the beginning they didn't give a shit about their customers, and they would never attempt to understand them in a way that didn't relate to sales.
But still, BEATING NINJA GAIDEN IN A DAY? Who the fuck actually does something like that? I mean, is this actually so common an occurrence that Game Crazy has to set up plans for these people? If so, wow, I must be a huge pussy.
Also, I think I cried when I realized Zelda was their attempt at humor. Somehow that's even worse than her simply trying to be “hip.”
PROTIP: Duke Nukem Forever is already cancelled.
I'm surprised you didn't mention the fact that the PS2 can only play 2 players without a multitap, yet he says it can play up to 4…
holy shit this video is stupid
How the hell did you get your hands on this? Did it get released to the public domain or something? Golly gee, that was terrible!
Dammit. I was looking forward to playing the game and having windows 95 type graphics in one area , then later on 2002 and then 2004 graphics. Well I know it would not be like that but it would love to see the state of a game that has been in development over like 10 years. “Too Human” took a long time to make as well right? Man what a god dam horrible , horrible , horrible , horrible game that was!!!…..
I hope it DN:F gets revived. Looks unlikely now. I just read the wiki though from what I can see it might still be in some development or have future plans to return to development. But I know how unreliable wiki is.
Last comment about the game on wiki is as follows. “According to a recent interview with magazine Gamesauce, “3D Realms has laid off the game's internal development team, but still plans to most likely work with external development studios to develop the game.”
The fact that I ever considered employment at GameCrazy only adds to the already incredibly awkwardness of watching this video. Spoony you made this bearable. I thank you for your kindness.
This is funny stuff, Every time they would show Zelda Scott I would yell WHY!!!!!??? or GOOD GOD!!! and wut not.Thanks Spoony that made my day.
That….was…..Awesome!!!! Seriously, some of the most funny shit ive ever seen.
Zelda rules da hizzy, biatch!
I especially loved the expression of utter annoyance on their faces whenever she was talking to an employee. Ryan is probably enjoying his new life scraping roadkill off the highway. At least that job is dignified.
Okay Crow Wicked Prayer your time is up, we have a new Bizarre Out of Place Ebonics Champion!
As a former employee of a Gamestop, all these points of interest are also brought up there…. except for the game demo thing. Can you just imagine if somebody asked you to demo “Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude” at the store?
And Jesus Christ that female interviewer was obnoxious and racist as hell! No wonder why you hardly see any black people working at game stores! And I bet that girl who wore the Crystal Chronicles shirt was the first in line to get Final Fantasy XIII *Sarcasm*.
I bet many prospective Gamecrazy employees were unable to finish this video and immediately walked out of the store or simply died in their chairs.
Booyah, Zelda. Booyah indeed.
Man, I remember retarded training videos for work, but this takes the cake.
For rizz-eeel, muthafucka.
I think I'll be seeing zelda in my deepest nightmares for the next couple weeks… thanks Spoony
what….the…fuck…was…that? thats how you americans train people? that sir is some funny shizit!
WHENS THE NEXT FF10 VIDEO COMIN MAN????????
Jesus christ you better exist because you are needed as an expression to counter the crazy of that woman.
Jesus christ you better exist because you are needed as an expression to counter the crazy of this video.
I think it says something that I've never heard of gamecrazy and I live withing 5 miles of one. (just looked it up on google)
frankly the used game store has been in the shitter from when funcoland got bought out.
I've seen many training tapes in my day. but the best training I ever got was when I worked at a toy store and we were instructed and I quote “don't fucking swear on live tv.” and yes that's because at kb toys one of the brilliant employees said in answer to the question of why people showed up at 5:00 am on the day after thanksgiving (again on live tv) I have no fucking idea.
Well fortunately, I was able to survive by gnawing off my right leg.
Wait wait wait wait…. the video is actually real? it wasn't made as a joke? they actually show that abomination to employees? wow… just wow… i really though this was a joke, a video making fun of some stupid store… and it is… but it makes fun of itself, not of some other store… wow… just wow…..
I guess they think, if anyone survive this video, he can work a the store without any problem! This is a endurance test.
I am so disturbed by Zelda…But on the other hand, I wish the employees at my local Gamestop were a little more like this rather than mindless zombies.“You want gaaaaaaaaaaeme? Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaameeeeees…”
fuck youuuuu, oh spoony one! I’m an actually fan of the first Crystal Chronicles game. Even going so far as to get the ost for it….thegamehadrelaxingmusic ._.
More like this please. These are a great start to the morning.
Holy poopers that is, sooo dated and FUNNY… Where do you find this stuff
wake and bake + this = XFD
I wonder what kind of porn Zelda watches
“…ads endlessly repeated like Marxist propaganda.” Sorry Spoony, but the Russians put their propaganda on red banners in white block Cyrillic outside buildings, mostly to creep out the rare American tourist awed by “ZA KOMMUNISMA!” in 2 foot letters.
The joke you should have made was Joel's “You can sell…you want to be popular” which he took from a subliminal tape for department store clerks; I think he used in in the “Hired!” shorts.
Zelda is more white than a ham and mayonase sandwich on Wonder Bread….she is so white, she makes Ingmar Bergman look like Omar Sharif….I'm suprised people were not wearing sunglasses in that video when she was on set. This one person has set slang back 60 years and somehow made velcro shoes cool again.
Spoon man where's the chain? Cause that was off it dawg
Oh my god, that zelda girl… I laughed so much.
Also you just see those actors really aren't taking this seriously, especially the interview at the end, they look like they're holding back laughter the whole time.
Heh, Spoony and I were in completely in synch when when we both said “excrusive?” at the same time.
That Zelda character…. SCARY! VERY SCARY!! :D
Ouch… just… ouch… that physically hurt to watch… Zelda was so white, she made Vanilla Ice look black…
Bald guy at 12:30 is my cousin, his name is Gus, he was was a district manager lol. I can't believe he's in this.
You know, if you're just going to sell back your games after beating them there's this crazy thing called RENTING. Doesn't cost nearly as much money.
Also, funny how the guy was skeptical about buying a used game until they demoed it for him.
The whole thing with Zelda seems to fall into the “so bad it's good/hilarious” category. If it were possible to laugh and groan at the exact same time, this would make you do that.
I love how Spoony's laughter fades in 2:00~2:06. I think I just witnessed a literal ROFL.
Good God, I didn't think anyone trying to be 'hip' could be whiter than Vanilla Ice back in the early 90s.. but Zelda here puts up some pretty mean competition. Fo' real, dawg.
I think Zelda was the first person on a computer screen I've ever screamed at. I can only hope she was contractually roped into talking like that.
I would have got up and walked out of the room if they tried to show me THIS as a training video.
This is further proof that the losers that work at used game stores know nothing about what they're trying to sale! Down with Gamestop, down with used game stores!
Good morning, Spoony and fellow Spooners.
I've only seen up to the 5:26 mark so far and…
1. I'm already requesting that Spoony do more of these.2. I live in mortal fear that someone is going to say, “Boom goes the dynamite.”
Oh dear lord that was sad. lol After seeing that, i'd probably heavily consider sending in my two week notice on the spot. XD Loved hearing the Spoonster laughing his ass off at the absurd wiggerism.
And now that I've finished the video…
1. Why did the one guy have a microphone when nobody else did?2. You can tell how old this video is by its distinct lack of “pwnage” and “lol-ing”.
uh, this was painful. And I empathize with the MVP thing, B&N run the same membership scam but I feel guilty most of the times I bring it up
Zelda Scott will be in my nightmares for a few weeks.
Oh god, I used to work at Gamestop, thank god we didn't have a training video like this.
I keep hoping or expecting Shad Gaspard of Cryme Tyme to just come in from the side of the screen with a big boot upside Zelda's head.
God… this reminds me of how terrible the videos were at work about selling alcohol.
WOW…I'm only halfway into the video right now, and this is just god-awful. It's even worse than the training videos we have to watch at my theater, hosted by Roger Lodge!
Heh. When I worked at JCPenney, I got to see the last breath of a great training video before it got changed for “politically correct” reasons: the safety portion of the video had this guy dressed like The Crocodile Hunter and he's showing us what not to do at your store, for example, don't leave bare clothes bars on the sales floor. People might walk into them. *cue the Crocodile Hunter walking into the rack* “Crickey! That almost stabbed me in the 'eart!” God. Damn. I was on the floor laughing.
How does that woman keep talking with a straight face?I could not recite those lines without bursting out laughing.In fact, that's actually really impressive, in a retarded kind of way.
I love how everybody had this thinly veiled shocked “what is wrong with this woman?” look whenever she interviewed them.
“Bojaaaaah!” Haha, I laughed my ass off xD
Me too, and so did Spoony himself apparantly, that was just … just …. aaaahahhahhaha
This is the REAL Legend of Zelda. Pretty much everything out of her mouth makes me cringe in pain AND laugh my ass off at the same time. The rest of it is pretty ridiculous too. Thanks Spoony! :D
Wow… That woman scare me, straight up, yo.
Ugh. This video hurt me in the very soul. The idea that this would be even close to an effective training tool is laughable (as evidenced by even Spoony busting a gut SEVERAL times during his commentary). Man, this is way worse than the training videos we had at my first job, and one of those had a pair of guys looking at a skin mag and showing it to a female coworker.
Zelda? Zelda?!At least they know it's a woman's name.
Good Riffing, Spoony. Especially considering that unlike MST3K, Rifftrax and Cinematic Titanic you do it all on your own.
Zelda's rapping stank so bad, she had to use airfresher to get the smell out.
That or she raps while doing number 2… either idea is disturbing.
This has to be the best worst training video I've ever seen.
I like to think that on the day of the shoot Zelda just started talking like that and no one stopped her. I mean, when you're recording that you know how bad it is. The director said “act cool” and she took it way too far and the crew just let her run with it.
One might notice the people standing next to her were trying not to laugh. And once someone off camera did.
Sweet fancy Moses…. is this real life?
Zelda needs her own TV show, couldn't be any more racist than anything by Tyler Perry. I mean god she's white, so white my head almost exploded. She makes Clay Aiken look like Malcolm X. Places like Gamestop do pester their customers with membership cards, accessories and used games(if I wanted it used I'd go to a flea market). I'm glad to see the shrink wrap removal on new games also bothers others and not just me.
Is Game Crazy a real store, because just looks like a GameStop Doppelganger.
Zelda almost made me cry.Spoony laughing at zelda made me cry.
this video is just one gigantic face palm…*slowly shakes head in shame*
Wow, something non-wrestling related on the site.
Did you miss Spoony’s 80 or so other non-wrestling videos?
That was hilarious.. and very very painful. A mixture of pleasure and pain if you will. No one over 20 should EVER speak like that, and the under 20's that do should be smacked across the head until they stop.
This entire video made me remember my job at gamestop, the whole selling thing made me cringe, and the only saving grace was making fun of the whole thing..
Is this real? Did this really happen? Good lord.
MUST BITCHSLAP THAT ZELDA GIRL!!!!
Reminds me a bit of the riff Diabetus of Retsupurae did on a Gamestop video about selling games to women, but even funnier.
The Legend of Zelda: The Offensive Stereotype.
I'm going to America for a couple of weeks in May, remind me not to go into a Game Crazy.
The sad thing is I have been to that Game crazy, it's located in Lakewood Washington I believe attached next to a Hollywood Video. my god…I actually applied to work there. I would kill my self if I actually had to process this as a video for new people.
Daizee Haze worked at gamecrazy?
Gahhh! Should be “WARNING: May give you migraines from stupid acting!”
I can't watch this all in one stretch. The nightmares of Burger King training videos are coming back to me!
We never used to have this kind of shit in the UK, but now everytime i go into a chain game store… it's fucking depressing how happy and helpful everyone is. Makes me want to punch everyone, and they have no knowledge at all, which makes sense as they're employed for customer service before actual gaming knowledge.
I'd rather shop where the employee has passion, and therefore opinions on the product they're selling. Because I want to be told if the game i'm buying is shit.
Wow I thought I had to sit through some bad training vids. Plus I FUCKING HATE GAMECRAZY! I've been screwed by them countless times, seriously! For one they had an employee that was stealing peoples 5 bucks down on preorders and I was one of the unlucky ones he did it too! He put the money in as 5 dollar trade-in credit and pocketed the cash. The game I pre-ordered was like 3 days late so I tried to get my money back and because of that asshole it wasn't that simple. I had to explain I never traded games to any GameCrazy and they realized what happened. It took me 3 days to actually talk to their manager and 2 more days to convince me to get my money back. NEVER AGAIN!
I choose to believe that Zelda talks that way in her everyday life.
Spoony…I love you.This video reminded me what it was like to work in retail. Discount cards that make the customer pay are absolute bullshit and it doesn't matter how nice you are, people will still refuse because it costs money.Anyway, hilarious video, keep up the great work.
Lol :D My god that's wrong on so many levels :D
I should show this to the training instructor at my job. He'll probably fall off of his chair laughing :D
She's so Crisp!
I have to give them credit for trying something different than the usual boring sales video, and I'd actually hire Bobby Pane to do commentary but DEAR GOD, EVERY TIME ZELDA OPENS HER MOUTH I FELT PHYSICAL PAIN! It makes Snoop Dogg want to kill himself just so he can roll over in his grave!
Now if someone could make a techno(or not)/autotune remix of Zelda, i would die happy.
On the other hand, Ryan is my hero for getting Tara's phone number. :)
What about the NBA part. Comes close enough to wrestling if you ask me.
The part is at 2:05 when the woman goes “BOOYAY!” and Spoony just loses it and starts laughing really hard.
WTF is this video originally a satire, I refuse to believe some advertising company seriously thought this was a good idea. Why is she talking like that? Stop it! Oh good please make it stop!!
This people disgust me what piece of shit damn capitalist scums. Like selling this meaningless shit was a big deal.
Is it just me, or is Keith trying to do a Howard Cosell impression? If so, he's doing a piss poor job of it. But at least he isn't an offensive stereotype.
I swear to ZARDOZ the white girl is so offensive I'd file a lawsuit with the NAACP and I'm so white I magnify light when I step outside.
4 years, tens of thousands of dollars in student loans, and a communications degree later and all Zelda got was a job making wigger talk for the next generation of underpaid, unmotivated Gamecrazy employees.
Colin Mochrie rapping on Who's Line is it Anyway sounded more natural than Zelda.
Wow, I have to admit that Zelda's performance in this video was just overly painful. The video wouldn't have been NEARLY as painful without Zelda being fly and dope, yo' fo-zizzle!
I hate to say this, but I think I'd rather hear Spoony talk about wrestling. I'm pretty sure the rap at the very end causes more brain cell damage than watching a whole episode of TNA. Where's the EPA to put a Hazardous Material sticker on this video? Or would that be more for the Surgeon General?
SURGEON GENERAL'S WARNING: Watching GameCrazy's Training Video can Cause Dizziness, Confusion, Lapse of Memory, Suicidal Thoughts, Brain Damage, and The Desire To Shop At Best Buy.

…..HOLY SHITTING FUCK SHIT.
Seriously, a profit seeking entity produced this?
I think my brain is on fire, and I don't know what fire department to call for that.
Spoony's Laugh after BOOJAH is pricless.
Could not stop laughing at Zelda for about five minutes following end of vid.
So that's what happened to Christian Slater.
LMFAO, that was actually one of the funniest videos you've done yet, Spoony. I had to stop eating my tacos every time Zelda came up or run the risk of shooting fiery sauce out my nose. Fuck, I'm crying from laughter!
Hahaha! Zelda should have her own sitcom, that would have generated some acward moments ^^
This one was hilarious Spoony! :D
One to two customers at any given time..? Yeah, that sounds about right.
I hate to watch people making asses of themselves, and I couldn't watch 3 minutes of this.
What I wanna know is how many takes did she take to get it right.
And I wonder if the director gave her like a line reading or something.
“You know hon, its good and all, but can you make it a little more black?”
Makes you wonder how many times she had to do it before she got it right.
Do you think the director gave her some pointers?
“Its really good, but can you make it blacker?”
I actually can't remember the last time I cringed so much in such a short space of time… I feel like I need to listen to Immortal Technique for a while just to wash the white off of me.
Even when I'm actively trying a wigger-offensive persona as a joke.. I–I can't even come close to Zelda. She's the stuff of god tiers. Remembering every single one of those idioms AND using them in the most inappropriately hilarious context possible? Dude… She deserves a medal.
this is quite possibly teh best training video i have ever seen, ive gotta get a gamestop one for comparison! lol
This was so painful to watch, I couldn't even make it half way. Your commentary is great, but I can't get over the horrible acting in the vid.
dear GOD everytime zelda spoke i could feel a little of myself die inside. “BOOYAH” AAAAAHHHH
What in Gods name did I just watch? One good thing about digital distribution is it probably put places like this out of business.
That was truly painful to watch, except for Spoony's comments.
Well it's not necessarily a good thing that Gamestop is going to be the ONLY distributor in this country before too long.
lmao great funny stuff
Zelda and Boyd Packer should defiantly hook up.
This video reminds me to play FOTR again, what with that cool poster on the wall, although it's not a great game I still love it for some reason, it's nicely made and atmospheric.
Sorry, that rap no. just made me lose it for a while…
Dear god, were they trying to be racist? or was this video just the greatest fail of all time? or both?
I wish I worked at one of these places. I've never heard of GameCrazy, so it probably got bought out by GameStop. There was this one corner in brooklyn with 2 GameStops, and the mall there had 3 GameStops, with two across from each other. Worse yet, GameStop stopped carrying PS1 games. :(
They usually have them inside Hollywood Video's from what I've seen.
i had a few friends that worked at a local gamecrazy, sadly it closed down but it was great while it lasted, being able to go into a game store where you know every employee personally was like a nerd's paradise. If only i worked next door it could have been like Clerks
well, no. She may have been using black terms, but she was whiter than Vanilla Ice doing a rap version duet of “I've had the time of my life” with John Cena in a snow storm…
btw, she used “Crunk” incorrectly… When lil' John started saying “Get crunk”, he just combined 'crazy' and 'drunk'. White people thought it meant cool and that stuck in pop culture. We, white poeple, tend to be morons…
OMFG really? I can't stop laughing at that damn woman.
Hey, man, I love the Crystal Chronicles series, they're the only FFs I can stand these days… Good god, this is fucking torture, where did you even find this, Spoony?
As a former Gamestop employee…that was fuckin' awesome. Oh, and for anyone who cares, that Crystal Chronicles shirt was a Gamestop promo item. God that game sucked…
Neither could Spoony at time.
This shit is hilarious, DAWG.
My Hollywood Video has a Game crazy and they know nothing about anything related to what I want. I literally said “I don't have a Ps3, only a 360.” and so what do they recommend? Two games. What were they? Red Steel and God of War 3 for a pre-order. Fucking stupid.
It's probably “Make sure you sell everything you can. If you have to, throw things at them! Make sure they go down kicking and screaming!”
Some of this is just too painful to watch. I love at the beginning where you just start laughing hysterically away from the mic.
The Duke Nukem Forever comment was clever.Great video commentary.
Im sorry, but I just can't watch this it is so bad, The Commentary is funny though.
What is this?
Wow, great commentary, but the video was…wow.
Please tell me that the video (not the commentary but the actual video) is an elaborate troll attempt.
…can I have some acid now so I can pour it into my ear and wipe this from my memory.
I'm not even black and i got offended O_O i love the reactions the blonde dude had every time she stopped talking XD
So this is the video that trains obnoxious game salesmen… ps. wouldn't an x-box be exactly as good as a ps2 for… ya know WATCHING DVD:S & NOT PLAY ANY GAMES? XD
Spoony for Prez!
Zelda was dope dawg.
Ah, rapper's delight; now known for being the most un-hip hop song ever. Of course the chicken verse didn't help it much either. Gamecrazy isn't too bad, but for me it's all about Play N Trade.
Ok, this is the first time since Bennet the Sage reading My Immortal that I have had to repeatedly pause a video and take breaks, simply to compose myself and start breathing again. Something about this level of cringe-worthiness… Do I dare go back? Really? Ah, go on… *10 seconds pass* AHAHAHAHAHAHA
Please don't do this too often, it'll wear out, but that was golden!
Wow…just wow. Every time that woman said something I laughed.
“…and they cost less. BOO-YAH!!!”
wht the hell man, that guy offered the soccer mom the ps2 when she clearly said that he had more than 1 friend, the GC would have been the perfect console for him. god what a retard, that and she wouldn't have had to spend money on all that extra shit.
also, that was the bomb diggity, miggity miggity miggity miggity mac daddy.
Spoony, you are a legend. End of.
Wow, that sure was the bomb-diggity, fo sho' my homie-G!
I have never been so offend in my own life.
No wonder why the GC by my house closed. there fing retarded.
Keith was like a shitty Jack Nicholson impression… Zelda was like a bad acid trip.
I did go to a Game Crazy once, they had Bujingai: The Forsaken City for the PS2, which I was surprised at since the game is rather obscure (I ended up picking it up, fun game). Otherwise, their selection was shit and in the end the only place to get video games I can consistently trust to have what I'm looking for is Amazon.
That was hilarious. If i had had to watch this on my first day working at a job like that I'd have been fired day one for making fun of the video. I suspect it was meant to be funny, and I didnt find it offensive at all, but It was so bad it was funny. spoony's commentary just made it even funnier. Kind of reminds me of some of the HR type videos they've shown on “the office”. I've had alot of jobs and dont recall ever seeing an HR video this insane hahaKinda curious what dumpster you found this video in =P Seriously, where would you find something like this?
I've spent years working retail for a number of employers. All jobs (Even non retail) have these insipid training videos.But I have to say this is by far the worst one I've ever seen. And I've even seen the infamous Vista training video that parodies Bruce Springstien Microsoft made for internal use.(Thank you Jeff Green!)
It's no wonder GC went under. They had enough smarts to apply typical selling techniques, but the training video here is a complete insult. It goes to show what they must have thought of their employees “Hey everyone we hire must be a late 90's fan of pseudo Hip Hop. multiplied by The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, then divided by Carlton Banks”.The enviornment there must have been pretty bad.
Anyway I enjoyed the Riff Traxx of this one. Keep the laughs coming man.
This is truly AWEFULL!!! but in a good way.I really cant believe this shit really is a training video.FUCKING EPIC!!
THIS SHIT IS CRUNK!!!!!
I don't even think Spoony needed to riff this one, the lines Zelda are saying are enough comedy gold on their own. The Duke Nukem Forever comment was gold dude, I mean you can preorder a game that will never exist. You may have well gone outside the Game Crazy and gave $5.00 to the Spoony Bum in the alley, just as good a waste of cash.
I'm really speechless, that is just….so epic….
I worked at CG for over a year and this video was not used at the time i was employed. We watched Hollywood training videos instead. Good job considering i would play guitar hero in between customers. BTW we never opened new copies of games.
What the hell is wrong with this woman, dog?!
Love how you just laughed from off mic after the BOO-YAH!!! xD crazy
OMG!! I want to stab Zelda in the face with a rusty fork. Then I want to eviscerate the writing staff with plastic cuttlery.
Why do I get the feeling that this is how black people think white people act all the time?
Oh boy, that was hilarious ! I can't wait to get more Riff theater, although this one will be hard to top, booyah !
Wow. I don't know how you found this video, but that was awesome!
For some reason I get the feeling that this video came to be because somebody tried to prove the “Infinite Monkey Theorem,” but instead of getting Shakespeare they got this.
The “Boo-Yah” laugh of Spoony's was probably the funniest thing I've heard in a long time. Whenever he cracks up it's madly infective. Same thing when he loses it in the “Spooning With Spoony Ep. 2″ commentary. Hi-fucking-larious.
God, the woman's “gangsta” speak is so painful. I'm not sure I can watch this whole thing.
Never in my life have I wanted to punch a woman so hard.
I wouldn't be surprised if they actually never realized that one of them was named ZELDA.
I think Zelda needs to pay reparations now! How could anyone approve of that in an actual training video?
Zelda will now be a Legend on The Spoony Experiment!
Agreed. I think we need to see clips for years to come. And people call Skids and Mudflap racist… they are dignified compared to this woman.
holy shit this is worse then the quiznos employee training videos, and that's saying a lot! this has to be one of the most offensive videos i've seen in a long time, lmao spoony owns!!
This was terrible. Though that rap doesn't hold a candle to the ear-raping horror of the Wendy's training video rap.
Woah, Zelda, enough of the slang. It gets outdated in a few years anyway.
oh sizzle that Zelda was Retardizzle. why would anyone let someone do that to there company. hell i'm from Baltimore and even i herd some new things come out of her mouth.
After a long day, this video made my night, dawg.
Having worked for both Game Crazy and GameStop in the past, I can say that upper management actually believes that these videos improve sales– but they don't. Nobody follows all of these steps, and aggressive sales tactics are bullshit. We dealt with useless upsells before Game Crazy and GameStop; FuncoLand, for example, demanded that employees push cleaning kits and GI subs. The cleaning kits were a crock, too… $15 for a Funco CD cleaner or $5 for CD cloths? Hmmmm.
Spoony's commentary made this video even better.
I was really hoping that Zelda would be shot in a drive-by at the end.
This is just bad.
Zelda is… No… She doesn't have enough… No… She isn't allowed to use street slang… No… NO… I have more right to use street slang than she does…
Did I mention that I am a 29 year old Jewish college professor who teaches computer game design?
If I have more right and street cred than someone that is saying something.
This is terrible. TERRIBLE. Never do this to me again Spoony… NEVER AGAIN!
As a black man, I think you know what I can say about Ms. Zelda. I wish that black guy could have slapped her sensless but I bet they kept him in another room, lol. Anyway, her performance was a straight up minstrel show in the middle of corporate propaganda, lol. It sucks because I don't talk like that at all, so it gets me in a way. By the way, Tara reid could not be Gail because she would have to act like a real person or just even act, lol. Anyway, Spoony, how did you get this tape?? Don't tell me you worked at Game Crazy, lol
Zelda was fricken' awesome, assuming I'm reading it properly and they're actually trying for irony that is. If this is actually played straight and they're attempting to relate to the youth of the day…then it's a major fail.No, they can't be, not with the inclusion of the rap at the end….would a company really be so insipidly stupid? Yes, but I'm sure it's still an attempt at comedy.
Ugh… Zelda just made Fred Durst look a talented musician
Spoony needs to guest on an official Rifftrax someday
LOL look at the Gail around the 7:05 mark, you could see her cringing as soon as as Zelda finishes her “off the heezy” line.
Fucking brilliant. I can't believe that I haven't seen this video earlier in my life. Zelda rules all. I'd do Gail BTW.
I suddenly have the urge to play Pokemon Colosseum after seeing in the background.
and also, Zelda's so white, she makes vanilla ice look like a rapper.
that was off the heezy fo' sheezy!
Epic, just epic
Oh lord. I love Zelda. She's so awesomely offensive! I want to marry her. I don't think her shtick will ever get old.
I just want to smash that lady's head in with a steel chair.
Worth watching twice. The madden crack was another good one.
I couldn't watch this. Seriously. I'm such a nice gal and I wanted to crack that lady's skull. Terrifying stuff.
This is one of your funniest videos at date, keep it up dawg!
African american guy who's commenting looks like that dude from MadTV.
Note to all video game stores:
When I go into a video game store, just ring me up for the fucking game I'm buying and shut the fuck up and maybe i'll come back and give you some more business
This is awesome. As a huge MST3K and Rifftrax fan I would love to see some more of these.
You guys're all gonna be sorry when Zelda finally hits the big time and goes quadruple-platinum. It takes a nation of MILLIONS to hold her back.
ummm is Game Crazy still around? Or did Gamestop stomp them out as well?
Great job, despite the inherent pain this video inflicts.
I kept thinking Zelda sounded familiar throughout that entire video, but it didn't actually hit me until the credits:
She's a chicken. A giant chicken.
Oh my god… That explains a lot.
This thing is painful…Spoony helps, but I still needs me some morphine…
Oh, it's worth wathing more than twice! :D
FREAKING Hilarious… Where did you get this??
Sadly after filming this Ms. Zelda was found shot 8 times on the Vegas strip in her “CRUNK” Escalade. How dare you insult the dead, she's a legend! Hell, she went double platinum seven times after her 2004 death.
Never be ashamed to be white, be ashamed of the stupid crap that comes out of your mouth that makes you seem like a racially insensitive moron. Do you think someone wrote Zelda's lines or that was all improvised?
I hate that woman Zelda lol
my sides hurt that was so very wrong just just so wrong. thank you for sharing.
This is a video that could've been vastly improved with some motherfuckin' Robocop.
Man! this video makes me want to never play any video games ever….. I don't want to turn dumb as they are.
I once worked in a videogames rental store about 10 years ago but I wasn't that fucking stupid with my clients…. for christ sake…. madden 2004? that means that video is only 6 years old, that's just too recent :(
I got a question for you guys. Where would you rather work, Gamecrazy or Wynn-tech from Phantasmagoria 2?
It's a good thing these stores are going belly up…now if only Gamestop can do the same.
P.S, if I can I will send a training video of theirs to you Spoony, they are legendary for being bad…
Playing games doesn't make you stupid, sir.
Being stupid makes you stupid.
Plenty of people are already there, games are just a scapegoat.
I read that as “spacegoat”
Awww why all the gamestop hate? They only turned into the mega corporate money hungry jerk-off lackeys that when the company was made they were against.
Wynn-tech hands down.
A point for you, sir.
Does everyone actually have a problem with people trying to push things while they're at Game Stop? I don't. Virtually every time I go in, I go in, get the games I want, and leave. That's it. The employees don't bother me or try and push anything on me. I think I've been asked to pre-order a game a grand total of two times.
The one time I went into Play and Trade, I found them far more obnoxious as they tried to do everything they could to emphasize their store's superiority.
Game Crazy I've never even heard of. And if this video is any indication I'm glad I haven't.
3:32- You should ask your son what he would like. Ask him about his favorite genre's, games, etc. Talk to your kid.4:48- What? I thought he would suggest a Gamecube.5:00- Sure buddy, make her pay for more then she needs. Did Sony make wireless PS2 controllers? 6:44- He should have also checked the disk for the dozens of scratches. 6:50- Whats the dilly?! 0_07:08- The blond must be tired of “zelda'8:21- Jiggy with it ?! 0_0 Zelda needs to take off the romance googles9:25- He deserves the title casual gamer for casually gaming and getting rid of them.10:02-Cronk?
Yo yo yo, 'sup mah crackas. How's it hangin'?
Hey. Long live the fighters!
Dreaming Tree not available?
aaaaaand this is why gamecrazy went out of buisiness, they got sued by the NAACP. Go Tekken!
There are 4 Gamestop stores in my area that I've been to (all within a mile of each other, and 2 actually in the same mall). One of them (the one that used to be Funcoland) is exactly as you describe; the other 3 are just like you hear the horror stories about. I get the feeling that the good shops are the exceptions, not the rule.
I thought he'd suggest the Gamecube as well, if he truly had the customer's interest in mind. Of course, he doesn't; he has the company's profit in mind.
Heh, there were Yu-Gi-Oh cards in the background. Gotta love it. And shut up, Spoony, Kingdom Hearts is amazing.
That's a joke right? I mean come on, does game crazy have a friken dementional teleporter in the basement? Wynn-Tech all the way, YA!
Oh my lord lol. Zelda Scott is ridiculous. I think she hit every little hip hop culture stereotype line there was at that time. I mean did she have black people coach her for her performance? That's just crazy. I don't even get the intention. Is it supposed to be funny? An if so why does a employee training video need to be funny?
Oh well at least we did get some laughs out of it for all the wrong reasons.
Please tell me you live in Arlington Texas because otherwise Game Stop is way, way too fond of multiple locations in the same mall. The Parks Mall has two stores and then there is one across the street that used to be a Funcoland
Ladies and Gentlemen, for one night only! Give it up for Zelda Scott and the Crunkettes!
performing their hit single, Game Crazy off da hook yo!
God Spoony that was horrible. I don't mean your commentary, I mean the training video, I don't think I have ever laughed so hard in my life. I like how the guy tries to sell all those expensive ass accessories with the PS2. If your gonna have 2-3 friends over, the gamecube is the system for that, not PS2. Game Crazy, We exploit uninformed customers.
Lol, man. Lol.
What…what did I…wha?
All of the three game stores I've been in (E.B. Games), I've never met anyone trying to sell me anything…except one time when one girl who had no fucking clue what any game outside of GTA was. Next time I went to that store, turns out she got fired.
Oh man this video is gold. So let me get this straight that one guy just possibly sold that poor woman a second Playstation 2? And Tara was it, just reserved Final Fantasy just Final Fantasy maybe XI, maybe she just re-bought Cristal Chronicles, maybe she bought the original NES one, or maybe its some never ending subscription to the series from now till her deathbed? Who knows, I sure don’t. What I do know is that Zelda person had me in stitches, never have I seen such a performance and not be a parody in and of itself.
Every game store exploits uninformed customers. Don't believe me? go to any gamestop on xmas and just watch.
I believe you. I went into a gamestop last week, and the manager was there, and he was trying to sales pitch me into getting a new Madden game or something. I just laughed at him, because he knew I wasn't into sports games, and he knew that I knew that he knew that, but he tried it anyway.
When you work there…it's a different feeling. Believe me.
The problem with the business model at places like this (and Best Buy, and Office Max, etc, etc) is that they make almost no money off of selling the items themselves. All their profit comes from pushing services, warranties, special memberships, all that crap. It's a house of cards, really . . . when your business model only works when you're selling intangibles and useless things, people aren't going to want to do business with you.
Oh God – what the hell was wrong with me.I used to have a Gamecrazy near me and I never tried to speak to the cashier in a horribly stereotypical dialect.
Damn them…they had to close down before I got to parody such an epic performance.Just like Gamestop and Battletoads…ah Battletoads
I hate that Zelda women she needs to lay off the slag because she can't use it and she looks fucking retarded when she talks like that.
But still overall Spooney's commentary was hilarious. Thanks for making his video tolerable for me to watch.
I can't believe Spooney didn't make a comment about G-Unit because that's own by 50 cent.
LOL at credits at the end with Zelda trying to rap and Spooney doing a spoof on Lose Yourself
The white commentator at the beginning looks and sounds like a soulless, neutered R. P. McMurphy. It's fucking sad.
Awwww… I used to work at a Hollywood Video/Game Crazy. If you look in the bathroom you can see the guide for the 'Hollywood Video look' poster. Thanks for the video Spoony, it really made my day :)
Thank you Spoony, I have a deep desire to hurt an interviewer today (woman talking in slang); I'm offended and feel mocked.
Haha I remember seeing this video back in 2006 when Joystiq posted about it. I had extreme douche chills then; but your riff makes it hilarious.
For reference: http://www.joystiq.com/2006/08/07/psa-avoid-thi…
What the hell is this shit?
I like how she tries to “butter him up”, or however you'd put that, with shit compliments like “you seem like a hardcore gamer”…
Unless you're one of those self-proclaimed “gangstas,” even if this was made in a mocking manner, you're not the target audience. Don't worry.
Is that “Zelda” woman for real? The “fake and gayness” of this thing almost made me throw up. Couldn't watch it to the end.Mad skillz dawg? no wai… This has to be a parody. Please just say it's a parody. Can't be real… can it?
Yep, your run of the mill “Training video trying to be hip”. Thanks for taking them down a notch Spoony! :D :D :D
Classic case of Train video trying to be hip with the young kids disease. Thanks for taking them down a notch Spoony!
Type your reply…
*uncontrollable laughter heard off screen*
if I had to watch this for training I'd fucking quite so fast
“Real Men Play Tekken” Hell, yeah, we do! Though I must admit, I'm probably on the lower end of Tekken players, as I have mastered the art of playing as the girls and learned all the good move combos through initially mashing buttons until I learned what fit together.
Grape Soda & Grape drink aren't the same foo's :o lol
hahahaha I lol so hard at “well, you know how final fantasy is; you know its gonna sell out” xD it really did, Tara… it really did with XIII on the xbox
Oh god. You know, I do not think I watched this training video during my time at the G-Crizzl–I mean Game Crazy. I wish I did, just because this is so laughably bad.
I don't know what they mean about GC not being about high-pressure sales; By the time I was hired, the district manager encouraged me to keep hammering customers with offers until they finally submit, no matter what. (I didn't.) :p
My god that zelda lady made ME feel jive. And im a 6'5″ skinny ass white dude who spends to much time on the internet.
I feel like i need a shower after that preformance.
That is one NERDY honky ><
Seriously?!Wow, I'm almost speachless here. I can't believe that this crap got through any kind of screening, if they even watched it after they edited it. I doubt it though, this is pretty horrid. I have seen some sappy, cheaply made training or introduction videos, but they were more along the lines of the one in the movie Waiting (still love that movie, trust me, they hit the nail on the head with what goes down in back while you innocently sit out front). But how can you sit through this video, walk out to the floor, and actually proceed with this job?
Hm. I wonder if that guy checked the copyrights on his catchphrase of choice. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Buffer
TrademarkBuffer began using the phrase “Let's get ready to rumble!” in the early 1980s. By 1992, he acquired a federal trademark for the phrase. Buffer uses his famous phrase in various licensing deals including the platinum selling album Jock Jams by Tommy Boy Records, the video games Ready 2 Rumble Boxing, Ready 2 Rumble Boxing: Round 2 for the PlayStation 2, Nintendo 64, Dreamcast and Game Boy Advance and Greatest Heavyweights of the Ring for the Sega Genesis and numerous other products. In addition, he has used variations of the phrase in advertisements, including the popular commercial for Mega Millions in which he says “Let's get ready to Win Big!” and the Kraft Cheese commercial in which he says “Let's get ready to Crumble! “.As of 2009, Buffer had earned over $400 million from licensing on the trademark.
Holy shit – much respect on the Glengarry ref.
I thought this was a send-up/joke when I first started watching it. At the same time I started going through the comments and realised that it was an actual true life training video. I couldn't believe what the presenter (Zelda?) was coming out with. Whoever wrote the script really should go on a race relations course or something: It had me switching between laughing myself to death and cringing.

That Zelda is real 'gangsta'. I bet the employees watching this can't even keep their attention on the video after hearing her jive talk.
I think we've just found someone whiter than Vanilla Ice and Seamus put in a blender with whitewash.
Holy crap, even Microsoft Sam is more gangster than Zelda. Who honestly wrote that script and then handed it to her thinking “Yeah, she's hip enough the pull off this jive talk!”
Honestly though shes the most entertaining segment of the video as everything else in this training video is so horribly staged and fake I'm surprised that the customers weren't made of cardboard.
And Spoony rocks as always.
This comment here be representin', homie G! Fo shizzle dizzle, yo! West Side!
Omfg I think I just died. Several times.
Omfg, I think I just died. Multiple times.
The first salesman sold her the WORST choice. He blatently lied to her in telling her the PS2 went up to 4 players. Most PS2 games didn't even go up to four players by default, and the ones that did needed a freaking multitap. The system didn't even have 4 controller ports. Based on what she said the Xbox or Gamecube would've been better choices, they actually were four player systems! God, I hate national chain game stores even more now.
I find it funny that they talk about helping the customers while setting up each sales pitch like it's the intro screen to Mortal Combat or something…although I guess both involve ripping someone's spine out on some level.

I was in a store like GC once and I had a question about a system. The person obviously didn't know how to respond and instead of saying that blatantly lied to me and said that it couldn't be done. I ended up figuring it out on my own but man was I pissed. Its not like they make a commission on small time shit anyway. Team games like racing games would have been better on the X box if there were 4 players playing. If it was casual play, like SSB then Gamecube.
Fanskit Fiesta beat you Spoony by about a year for a commentary on this. Nice try though. D+
“This shit just got real.”
There was a brief moment during that ordeal where I wanted to kill Zelda more than any single being in existence.
Also, wasn't that the black dude from MAD TV?
Also also, are all employee training videos designed to be mind-numbingly offensive to both the senses and human intelligence? This is sadly probably one of the best training videos I've ever seen.
That looks EXACTLY like the one near my house. And I know that Spoony lives in Mesa… so maybe it is the same one.
Never mind, it said it was the King City one.
man this is hilarious
Haha, this is such a fail training video. There's a reason why us gamers don't like going into these shops with the imitation monkeys, who just stand around all day watching trailers and playing cod.Much cheaper, and better to buy games at california-ads or amazon..
Game Crazy and Movie Gallery to close its remaining locations:http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6412SR201…http://www.platformnation.com/2010/05/03/game-c…
Z-Dog will be keeping it real in the unemployment line.
Should I go die? I liked The Crystal Bearers ;-;
You should label this “Not safe for work”. ;P And by the way, where did you get this? It's almost too hard to believe that this is real. XD
Jesus! Talk like that was ridiculous even by late '90s standards, AND THIS WAS 2004!
Whatever they paid Zelda to play this ridiculous wigger impression, it wasnt enough
wait. if this was a challenge, then who won?
No one, everyone suffered more than any prize could compensate for.
Yo, Zeldas got mad props, fo shizzle! Dis is wiggedy wiggedy whack, ya’ll!
This riff makes my sides hurt.
is it me or were they targeting to wrong audience? ok, morons = $$$$ but still any respectable hardcore gamer is bound to be annoyed with the attitude they’re pulling
I agree. If I were them, I would have given them tips on how to handle more experienced gamers. Telling the employees stuff like back off with questions, and not try to add on to the sale. That’s what gives the customers a bad impression, and the gamecrazy people must know that. Even if you have about 50% inexperienced gamers, which, I don’t really know statistics on that, but, I’d guess that would be about right, or even over, though considering that a fair amount of the buyers are parents buying stuff for their kids, I’d say it’s around right, you can’t expect to make much off the add ons, in the long run, as almost anyone is bound to buy memory cards, and an extra controller or two, and all they get money off is the useless accessories, like remotes and such. Paired against the experienced gamers, many of whom won’t take this, and will go to gamestop, or some other store. But then again, these are the same people who thought Zelda Scott was a good idea.
This video was the bomb-diggety, dog.
You can't hate on Spoony when he's got mad hookups like this, yo. Booyah!
i will marry you, zelda <3
Hm. Excellent. Good to see she showed what was the dilly… [way too long a pause] yo.
Yeah. Its nice to know my MVP card paid off after they closed out.
Stupid 20 dollars Im never getting back, lol
It's the miggity-miggity-miggity-miggity mack daddy: Zelda Scott!
Real man play TEKKEN!!! — i agree, i agree.
Man, i really like this “doodely-doodely” time skip joke !
I think Zelda Scott is the enemy of all mankind.
Wow. I mean…wow. I don't even know where to begin.
I'm surprised my first job at PacSun didn't have a training video featuring Zelda.
You know, I'm thinking about the PS2. The clerc said it can support 4 players. Yeah, I've never seen a 4 player on a ps2.
As Byron points out, it needs a multitap to do this. Thing is, most games on the PS2 don’t utilize a multitap–so selling one to her was the equivalent of selling her a jet complete with someone to turn the propellor.
The Legend of Zelda Scott, ladies and gentlemen. Making inner-city gangs suddenly realize how stupid they sound, one potential GameCrazy employee at a time.
“soul caliber is for button mashin noobs, real men play tekken.” I couldn't agree with you more spoony. lol
HAHAHAAHAHAHAH, i'm so glad i looked through your older stuff and found this, recognised zelda from your intro, Thanks so much Spoony, you never cease to crack me up. Cheers sRaven
A. B. C. Always Be Closing. Always. Be closing.A. I. D. A. Attention, Interest, Decision, Action.
The degree of epicness in Zelda Scotts jawdropping performance must be rightfully iconized on T-shirts and baby mugs for aspiring new wiggers.
Scratch reading rest if you like trained monkeys to read ramblings by people you dont know; — this is so absurdely insane that my inital reaction to Gamecrazy being geniuses for making a functioning parody of a training video is flipped entirely, wondering at the end that this might not have been intentional. Adding the 4port – PS2 breaks the illusion of actual compentence (fact checking being bare minimum standard, even a freshly minted 10yr old will tell you that 4port PS2s are more rare, if not mythical, than 13year old blonde girls giving poor reviews to the Twilight series. If they even exist! Scratch that, dont even think I know a blonde girl reviewing anything posted at a nerd page at any age to make such a hilarious masterpiece intentionally. Oh… Just came up with an example raping my blonde-statement already. Damn you, Angry Joe! Leave the blondes to their domain of vapid godliness!
No no, you don’t get it.
He’s selling multiplayer during the accessory phase of the selling, meaning he’s talking multitap. You know and I know most games don’t use multitap because most are designed for at most 2 players.
The point is, the salesman knows it too–but the mother doesn’t. Easiest way to get rid of a device that ain’t selling: foist it onto the total noob that walks through the door.
i worked at game crazy they made us watch this 4 FUCKING TIMES I WANTED TO KILL MY SELF
PS2 needed what was even archaic at the time, a multitap. Greatest change that came in 3rd gen. of the console.
You deserve an award for working there. A survival award.
Okay, I just gotta ask, why the fuck is that middle-aged white woman talking like a ten year old white kid from the nineties trying to be a fifteen year old black kid from the eighties??
… (+ ellipses^over 9000)
I’ve got nothing else. S-she said… S-she said… I mean I can’t even… This is a parody, right? It has to be. This can’t possibly be genuine. Right?
W-wait. She SANG? C-can’t… can’t breathe… tension… penumothorax… from… laughing so… hard… dying…
Used to work at publix, the training video was somewhat like this, very “wiggerish” I wanted to shoot myself in the face when I had to watch that video, it was an hour and forty five minutes long. Booya!
Okay, it took me a little while… But Zelda Scott is comic gold. She’s just a slang blender that someone forgot to put the top on before turning her on!
OMG That was horrible! I’m from Eastern Europe and I never understood the idea of training videos (We don’t have them here) because they are an insult to the intelligence. Bret Middleton you’re a brave man for living to tell about your experience after that torture. I think I would have to chew my right leg off to survive that agony of a video :)
I cannot believe this vid was made in the 21st century. Zelda Scott is so painful to listen to that I cringed every time she opened her mouth. If there was ever a god for wiggers to worship, she would be it. That football game footage was absolutely not Madden 04 either. The models were so blocky that it looked more like footage from NFL Gameday 99 on the Playstation 1.
I’ve never facepalmed so hard until I saw the end.
I am stunned… what… how… Zelda… I never thought I would ever see anything like that holy shit that was too much. But that chick(not zelda) was pretty hot(maybe zelda too).
Okay, only partway through, and I know it’s kinda late, but… “PS2 supports up to 4 players…” Since fucking when? It supports 2, and if you buy an extender thing, it’s up to six on the few games that support the damn thing. I may be late, but LEARN YOUR SYSTEMS, DUMBASS!!!! (not Spoony, the sales guy)
The salesman DOES know his systems, most likely, and he most likely does know that the multitap doesn’t work for most games. Because so few game developers designed for the device, if the GameCrazy has one, it’s probably been sitting around for quite a while. What better person to foist such a rarely-used peripheral on than a parent who knows nothing about game consoles? Heck, he could have probably unloaded a Virtual Boy or even a popstation on her, and she wouldn’t realize she’s being taken for a ride.
Oh god, he thinks he’ll play Ninja Gaiden through quickly!
That’s impossible! D:
Ow. I cried for my whiteness whenever that woman spoke.
after this training video was releases Zelda was found tied up with many caps in her arse and graffetti all over her unfortunatly it used the type of speech she uses so we didn’t understand a word of it, Zelda is recovering in a soundproof room, not for her voice to annoy…. er.. well everybody else
After the camera goes from zelda to casey or whatever… his face combines expressions of fear and dispair, he looks like he wants to yell “Call 911! The wiggers are taking over the world!”
I kept telling myself to stop watching this, but I couldn’t.
I seriously want to hurt Zelda. What a freakin’ moron. The things people do for corporate cheerleading. Bleah.
Hurt her?! We should petition to get her a talk show!
I honestly don’t think this is a training video as much as it is a comercial to show white people just how moronic they appear when the go all hey-yo, dawg, nigga-nigga…
Jesus Christ, that’s the old Game Crazy and Hollywood video in Westwood Village, Seattle, Washington…
I drove past the old Hollywood Video that went out of business months ago and couldn’t help but think “Here Lies Zelda Scott, Original Gangsta”
They replaced my Woonsocket GameCrazy with a God Damn Dollar Store.
Here lies Zelda Scott, made the unfortunate mistake of making an interview in the Bronx.
Spoony’s laugh gets me EVERY fucking time, especially when he can’t contain himself like at 2:05 after he hears Zelda, in the background you can almost hear him go nuts with laughter.
…I think it almost sound like Dr Insano! xD
My Soul Hurts!
listening to zelda making her slang makes me wish i wasn’t a black cat. I’m offended as a black cat. For shizzle,
It hurts so much.
“So what do your kid…. you know what? Fuck it, just buy a Playstation 2″
“Soul Calibur is for button mashing noobs, real men play TEKKEN” LOL best joke xD
O god, I almost died when I saw this… and i think that zelda is my little cousin’s real mom he sounds just like here and he is whiter then ME!
HOLY CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP. This shit would have been funny without your riffing it. How did everyone keep a straight face around Zelda? Seriously. I couldn’t have done it
This is like the 5th time i’ve watched this, everytime i laugh :/ Iv said it before ill say it again, More Training videos !! :D
Zelda Scotts: Sending the African American community back to the days of slavery with whitegirl ebonics.
“Keep it real Casey” she says after she gives us all kinds of offensive stereotypical BULL FUCKING SHIT! What the FUCK is wrong with that FUCKING woman! How the fuck can she even keep a straight face? Is she a fucking retard? OMFG!!!
Dude, Spoony, I fucking swear: your worst performance in total (in all your videos I’ve seen so far) is way better than her best performance any time! She’s upset me so much, I just had interrupt my personal “Spoony video marathon” to say something (actually, 2 things… see below) about this one.
This chick makes me cringe…
She managed to make me rage in under 10s.
All I want to know is why.
9:21, you can tell this is old, there’s yu-gi-oh cards out front and center!
Okay talk to me like that. I will kick your white ass. >:(
Is this the part where I travel to US and talk like that to you, and you kick my white ass, just because I speak like the stereotype black person? Very interesting
Holly crap! Zelda is fucking annoying.
If you always wanted to know what “Failure so epic it’s actually awesome”, I give you Zelda Scott.
OMG I just realized something, with Zelda Scott, happens to be the first name of F Scott’s Fitzgerald’s wife, and her last name happens to be the middle name of the author. Probably just a coincidence.
Ah, bite my ass Spoony, I love Crystal Chronicles. Haha.
But great video, as usual. I still can’t believe this video was an actual training video. Maybe GameCrazy went under due to Zelda’s racism causing mass sueing. Ah, but we can dream.
I don’t know a single Final Fantasy game that has ever been sold out the day it comes out. Thanks, FF12, for ruining the series. ;D
i really hate how you constantly have to put your little comments in the videos, the videos are all vry interesting and then you come in with this lame ass comment… i know its your site and your video, but your showing us these things and theyre funny on they re on, but then u come in and say somthing stupid. not only that but we cant hear what they say when your saying your dumb little joke…. STOP!
THEN DONT FRAKING WATCH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You seem to have missed the point of riffing, lmao.
TSE (The Spoony Experiment) Riff (Which means riffing on the movie/films, Saying jokes and mocking what’s on screen) Theater. Which mean it’s the very place where Spoony *will* do that.
What a dumbass…
are you retarded or what thats the point of the video the reason we watch to hear spoony riff….dumbass
who asked you?
Suburban Ebonics 101 with your host Zelda aka. Whitey McCracker-Honkey.
I love this, just because you’re so happy during them, it’s a nice break from your angry persona in the other vids.
Madden fan huh? GET OUT!
To Gail’s credit, at least she tries to push a better NFL game (ESPN football) on the dope.
This video will never get old no matter how many times I watch it!
This is why Gamecrazy/Hollywood Video are burning in hell for a company.
Yea, in there they talk about preorders, thats a freaking joke. I
preordered MGS3 Subsistence for the Redbox “expensive as heck” edition
and they gave me the regular game. Screw this company, im glad they are
dead, and this video proves it.
I played Chrystal Chronicles. While it wasnt an FF game, it was still a good game.
-Does he want to play Halo?
-Does he want to play Super Smash Bros?
-Then PS2 is perfect for him.
And that’s all he had to ask, why bother with any more questions?
2:04 Greatest Spoony outtake EVER.
fuck game stop.
”I said a hip. Hop. The hippy. The hippy, to the hip, hip, hop. YOU don’t stop rocking, to the bang. Bang. Boogie. Say up! Jump that boogie! To the rythm of the boogie, the beat.”
“Well, that’s it. Rap’s dead. Had a good run.”
“I AM RAPPING to the beat. And me, the groo – ???”
“Look, if you had just one shot. To embarrass everyone who ever knew you… would you capture it? Or just let it slide… ?”
I think I just saw Yu-Gi-Oh cards.
Alright, who’s in favour of killing Zelda?
Considering the track she’s already on, I doubt any of us will have to :P
NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!!! D8<
Don’t hate on “Zelda” she is just a bad actress looking for a paycheck.
Blame the script writer.
Holy shit, that laugh at around 2 minutes XD
Lol Spoony laughing at 2:00 even I laughed at how bad she said booyah.
Zelda looks and talks like she belongs in ICP.
“That’s right mam you too can have a copy of Duke Nukem Forever in your hand on release date.” Man that is a sad joke in retrospect. Still a great riff Spoony. This never gets old no matter how many times you see it.
Oh I know how easy it is to exploit FF fandom! The pudgy Kitase might have traded talent for CG (like his idol, George Lucas) and is now dominated by Emperor Bedhead XIII, but I still retain hope that Nomura, Tabata, and Ito will relegate Big T back to cutscene direction and concept design and let Kitase recuperate because I think he lost his mind when he sold FFXIII-2 to some REALLY AWFUL PRADA shots!
Know what sucks? I got a Gamecrazy card 2 WEEKS before they went out of business. So now I’ve got a useless piece of plastic. Well, I guess I can try to psionically charge it and my Hollywood Video card to try to be the next Gambit.
You know, I have the same Crystal Chronicles shirt.
OMG I love this video so much, I watch it every time I need to improve my mood ;) Zelda is the star of this show:D
Hey I sold one person two Owe Boll DVD’s when I worked at FYE. I know I sold my soul to do that. The trick to selling is they want it they just don’t know it yet. You have to convince them they want it….lol
Hey! Pokemon Coliseum! My favorite Pokemon Spin off Game!
I miss 2003 sometimes.
Ah Gamecrazy. It was the best job I ever had, especially since we did none of the things this video advised. All we did most of the day was shoot the shit and challenge the Hollywood Video guys to Street Fighter to see who had to mop.
Oh my god. That was filmed in the Game Crazy I used to go to as a kid. I only noticed it in the credits recently. I am mildly frightened.
Thanks to Game Crazy, I am now 34.3% more racist.
I love this video it’s the one I keep coming back to whenever i feel bored or just want a little Spoony to light up my life.
Why did the salesman blatantly lie to the costumer when he said the PS2 could have up to four players? Uh, no. It can’t. There may have been an accessory to do that (i dunno for sure), but it definitely couldn’t do that out of the box. Boy, that lady’s kid is gonna be sorely disappointed when he finds he can’t play it with his friends.
That was CRUNK
I have watched this video so many times over the last couple of years. I honestly cant watch this without coming to tears when Zelda talks. Its so racist and so stupid that its beautiful.
Nice Action Gamer? I don’t give a shit. Good fantasy gamer? Fuck you, go home and earn Gil. You wanna work work here… close. Always be closing, fo rizzle.
Spoony actually has to leave the microphone so he can have his laughing fit without drowning out the audio. Needless to say, I still didn’t hear anything after that, because I was laughing my ass off too.
I stopped doing pre-orders when they changed almost every pre-order bonus to be a downloadable. I liked getting things like the game case for FF: Crisis Core or the posters for KH: Days
The bit where they talk about Final Fantasy “selling out” turned out more true than we could have ever guessed.
