The Fat Princess Diaries

Camera + Lust for Video Game = Live Action Fat Princess

  


Look, this shouldn't need too much explanation, but I kinda have a "thing" for Fat Princess. It haunts my dreams. The sheer concept of a class based capture the flag, where the flag is a princess, and you can feed the flag to make it fatter... brilliant. In an effort to stave off those pangs of desire for the game, I came up with the idea of doing a live action version.

If I could do it all over again, sure I'd do things differently, but for two people (no camera person) and an afternoon, I'm pretty happy with the results. That said, we did spend our entire budget on the special effects/courting Shia LaBeouf for the project.

Enjoy! (And Digg!)

For the record, this video also accurately reflects life here in DFW. It's too hot to go out and exercise, and there's way too much food everywhere. @_@

@John_Martone: What about HEALTH nerds? Hmm?

In all seriousness, though, I think it's perfectly permissible for a geek to be fit. Just because we binge on Cheetos and Mountain Dew sometiems doesn't mean we live on nothing else.

Awesome Vid Guys, Made my day!:)

I LOL'd my ass of at this. Somehow this is vaguely reminiscent of me and Baku's relationship. Quite often I just lay on the floor and whine about being hungry until Baku makes something for or agrees to take me out to eat.

What is this, I don't even...
