The lights are on
Video games are great, but aren’t they usually too subtle? Besides, everything is better when it's got a cheering crowd and excited commentary. YouTuber TheBlueOwlPlays took some of famed WWE commentator Jim Ross’ best outbursts and put them to a wide variety of video game moments. The results are often surprisingly fitting, and always hilarious.
Check out the two episodes below to hear Jim Ross’ thoughts on games like Dark Souls, Call of Duty, Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil 4, Battlefield, Mario Kart, and more.
Keep an eye on TheBlueOwlPlays’ YouTube account, because part 3 is coming soon. For more celebrity-video game crossovers, here’s what happened when Conan went to E3. For more commentary over the top of gaming, check out Tim Schafer narrating a Grim Fandango playthrough (though Schafer isn’t usually quite as excited as good ol’ JR is.)
