What a time to be alive, riight? In all fairness here, Sonic Adventure 2 did feature one of the greatest, catchiest songs ever in a Sonic game. Someone out there decided to take their appreciation for the iconic song a step further, and started up a petition to change out the U.S. National Anthem for the Sonic Adventure 2 song itself. The Change.org petition reads as follows:
"NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been under fire recently for refusing to stand during the performance of our country's national anthem "The Star-Spangled Banner." Because of the injustices occurring in the United States of America, the 49ers player disagrees with the message being conveyed by Francis Scott Key's lyrics.
"The obvious solution would be to rid our nation of the injustices Kaepernick is protesting. However, that would take a lot of hard work and determination that we've clearly been incapable of to this point. So, instead, I suggest to President Barrack Obama that we change the national anthem to Ted Poley and Tony Harnell's more upbeat and less controversial "Escape from the City" as featured in the smash-hit video game Sonic Adventure 2.
"Tell us, America, would you rather be reminded of the constant violence and threats faced by the soldiers of 1812 to get to this still-divided point in U.S. history or be set free by the rush of danger lurking around every turn as you follow your rainbow at the speed of sound?"
Clearly a joke, but now we definitely have to listen to the song!
Man, that must've been unimaginably satisfying when that guy saw the pumpkin hit its mark. Some neighbors though, just ask for it. Sounds like this particular neighbor was nothing short of a waking nightmare. Dude had it coming.
Man, what a prime example of how it can really just benefit a company to do the right thing when they have the chance. For whatever reason this company felt compelled to not fork over the $600 that they should've for a broken TV. Well, that BS decision went on to cost them dearly.
Some guy on Gumtree has a laundry list of things you'll have to do in order to score his two spare tickets to a sold out Hardstyle show in Sydney. The tasks include singing, dancing, playing Mario Kart, cooking him breakfast, and paying $130 for each ticket.
Will anyone go for it? Apparently, yes. The seller says, "I have recieved numerous responses to this ad, 90% making no mention of the special requirements, listed above. Please be creative with your responses, as I will take this into consideration." I don't know how much more creative someone could get without making it weird, but where there's a will, there's a way.
