Funny timing, as I just bought Rock Band today (it just got launched in mainland Europe proper).

But yes, this is very, very unfortunate.

No, you guys are not even close to half-way there...

Look at Al Roker on the drums.  They're playing to a prerecorded video, hehe.

Once you see it, you cannot unsee it.

I think I have seen enough of people on TV trying to play videogames.

Posted by SuperMooseman

Those guys know how to rock!

Sorry, I mean suck. I typo'd.

I was really surprised to see them air that.  It was so ridiculous, I think it may have actually done real damage to the Rock Band brand.  Imagine if you're one of the wider audience (non-gamer) and see how totally stupid those people looked.  You would not go and buy that game.  I'll bet the PR guy that decided to let that air is getting his ass chewed right about now.


Though, it does say something about the reach of Rock Band.  What I couldn't understand is that Meredith didn't know the damn words or melody to Livin' on a Prayer.  Is it just me, or is that not a song most people know (especially of her age).  Maybe she's too old for it.

That's it, the end is near.

I just became deaf and blind, from continuesly stabbing myself in the eyes and ears in hope that it would make it stop... Unfortunatly, it will still haunt my dreams.

Ouch, their dignity

Is that black guy O. J Simpson? If not, why do the crowd boo him when the camera zooms in close?

Incidents like the one depicted in the above video may be occurring closer to you than you think. Maybe down the street, maybe next door, maybe even.. in your own home! (dun dun dunnnnnnn). To see it on a show like Today is pretty funny though, especially since she's totally tone deaf :P

Posted by MetalGearSunny

What. The . Fuck.
I'm glad I didn't watch that today.

Posted by Vlademir

I remember when they were using the Wii Fit. I felt embarrassed for them.

Posted by Megalon

Oh my....the apocalypse is near.

Posted by muthachugga

Wow. I'm so embarrassed for them that I had to shut it off.

Posted by OtaconNachos

Posted by War77Machine

Posted by HoldSteady828

I feel bad. I feel like I just went to school without any pants on.  Is this a normal reaction to this video?

Posted by Afroman269

Anyone feel more pumped for guitar hero WT or Rock Band 2 now after this?

Posted by MaypoMan

I saw this while flipping through the channels this morning... I cringed.

Posted by krochisy

It's nice for the guys at harmonix, free advertisment. At least that's what it looks like.  Nick_verissmo please don't start cursing on the blog.

Posted by AEKtzis

I actually thought that was funny. Im not like OMFG good morning America played a game I want to play.....so therefor it is no longer cool.

Posted by Bradtron

Posted by slashdotdot

I really hope that was party mode (no fail mode).
Because i fail at rockband singing, while blond screaming person doesn´t.
I like that they were all playing on easy, but aside form that:
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!
That was horrible!
