The lights are on
Earlier this year, I watched my co-worker Dan try to defeat Mike Tyson in Punch-Out!!. He failed miserably for three straight hours. Near the end of his attempt, I made a bold claim: Dan's story was just a prologue to a better (and shorter) video featuring me effortlessly beating Iron Mike. The time has finally come to back up my bravado.
While I try to shame Dan on the gameplay front, the accompanying commentary from Andrew Reiner and Jeff Marchiafava shame him on several personal and professional levels. Dan sits in also, but his testimony does more to incriminate than defend himself.
Watch the drama unfold in the video below:

It's only 12:09AM at the time of this typing, but I think that just made my day.
I think your adult brain is getting in the way of your timing. Stop trying to predict and react to his actions. Yes it requires fast reaction time but when you try to plan out your attack and he changes his timing it is messing everything up. Last time I played it was as a senior in HS (9 years ago) and I was able to beat him down once I stopped trying to predict and just went with the flow.
Has anyone on the GI team ever beat this? I want to see someone actually beat it.
I predict this will never end, and Kim to win the GI Royal Rumble.
Remember when Dan and Joe played basketball?
Well why not an office-wide boxing match? Head gear and gloves, three two-minute rounds, three judges chosen from non-participating GI people.
Oh, or Chris Kluwe could be the judge. I might actually pay real money to watch that.
"First Blow" Joe! Sorry, but I don't think Joe's gonna be able to beat Tyson. :( Also, I totally think Reiner would kick every other GI staffer's butt in real life fighting.
For all his bluster Joe is farther from winning than Dan is.
OMG Dan! Weekend At Bernie's are awesome movies!!! Y'all should really have another Real Life Replay! May it be basketball or what not. Please make it happen Soon. Ben Reeves for the Real Life fight...lol I think Dan would just punch and run away! LMAO! Please make something like that happen! Thanks anyway!
Dan you are truly the best person to be a game informer EVER. Stay far better than all of the other nobodies that you work with.
I'm sorry I didn't remember about this when Dan tried this. But I hope it can at least help Joe in his third hour attempt at this. I happened to notice that you guys are grandma dodging. you can make lil mac come back to center faster if you move the d-pad back the other way after you dodge. you can actually dodge the incoming punch if you move to early like dan was doing. roll the thumb joe, roll the thumb.
