Watch: Iconic Video Game Characters All Bravely ‘Go Right’

By  · Published on May 2nd, 2012

Why Watch? One by one, this clever short film parades familiar video game faces as they march forever from left to right.

It’s a celebration of scrolling (with music epic enough for the occasion) and a distillation of 8-bit nostalgia. But more than that, isn’t there a lesson about life here? Something trenchant and humane? Something these colorful specks of light can teach us about ourselves?

Even if there isn’t, this video is really, really cool.

What will it cost? Only 3 minutes.
