When Art Doesn’t Imitate Life

If you haven’t yet heard of Grand Theft Auto IV, it’s one of the hottest video games out right now, and features all those things gamers love – high-quality graphics, explosions, violent mayhem, sex, and on and on – all based in New York City. But some good can come of America’s most graphic game. A member of the Coney Island USA message board posted a hilarious – and poignant – video of his efforts to destroy a Coney Island (Firefly Island in the game) gazebo, comparing it to the reality of those shoddy structures.

It’s slow to start, but hang in there to the end… it’s worth it.
