Logan Paul Destroys 15 Game Boys - And Gamers Are Furious
YouTube personality Logan Paul is known for rattling the internet, but now, the social media personality is making the wider world angrier than ever. This time, he's destroying a batch of Game Boy Colors.
Paul is known for being much more than a boxing wannabe who wants to take out Mike Tyson, and is a not-so-secret Pokemon superfan. Still, that hasn't stopped him desecrating the console that made it famous.
Why Has Logan Paul Destroyed 15 Game Boys?
In his latest venture to peeve the world, Paul has used a stock of 15 Game Boy Colors to build a table (of all things). Posting on YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and probably Myspace, Logan Paul showed off his epoxy table build.
For those who don't know, epoxy is a type of resin that's become popular in home builds. Now, Paul has locked 15 Game Boy Colors in a clear tomb of demise. Given how popular retro consoles are and how much you could buy them for on the market, the move hasn't exactly gone down well.
While Logan Paul's epoxy Game Boy Color table is undoubtedly a thing of beauty, do you not think they could be put to better use other than being displayed in the millionaire's house? Think of all those lost hours of Pokemon Gold and Silver that are being missed out on.
What Have Gamers Said About Logan Paul's Game Boy Build?
The Twitterverse was the most vocal on this gaming guillotine, with fans quickly posting online to share their rage. One wrote, "Everyone here who says 'they probably didn't work' obviously has never owned a gameboy or gameboy color since you can f*****g play basketball with that thing and it'll still be fine. Do y'all really NOT see these are all like pristine and don't even have discoloration?"
Another added, "A kid could've enjoyed his first game without a phone. A guy could've bought and played on it because of nostalgia Someone could've been happy And you put their happiness in an epoxy resin and waste it. Shame." A third said, "I've been trying to buy a game boy color for years and here you are destroying ones that could be put to use." Basically, we weren't particularly happy.
Not everyone was anti-Logan though. Someone else said, "Don't understand what people's problems are, he bought the gameboy colors he's allowed to do what he wants with them? There aren't just 15 Gameboy colors in the world." Another concluded, "Can't believe that Logan Paul would steal the 30 year old cheap electronic from an imaginary kid and then use it in a way that gives him joy. So selfish."
We've got to admit, it looks pretty great - especially with a Pokemon frame - however, consider Paul to be at the top of some people's kill list right now. Thanks, Pikachu's crying now.
