Total Slacker, who released their new album, Slip Away, this past winter, have a new video game-centric video for their song “Super Big Gulp.” In the Danny Krug-directed clip, Tucker Rountree sits down to play a mysterious Sega Genesis game only to be sucked into it (via animation that reminds me of “Digital Estate Planning,” the video game-themed episode of Community) while bandmate Emily Oppenheimer plays. Also of note: Anyone else remember that Jurassic Park game Rountree is playing in the beginning? You could pick to play as a human or a raptor, and while I wouldn’t call the thing good exactly, I still played the shit out of it as a kid and had a blast. Check all of it out below.
