Giant Bombcast Noby Noby Boy Contest Winners Revealed!

These Giant Bomb users prove that the unbridled insanity of Noby Noby Boy cannot be contained to the realm of video games.

As we announced on the Bombcast a few weeks ago, we recently scored a handful of wicked Noby Noby Boy t-shirts from our good friends at Panic Inc., the proprietors of high-quality Mac software and, for some insane reason, Noby Noby Boy and Katamari Damacy t-shirts. Eager to give them away to our awesome users, all we asked was that you submit a gameplay video of Noby Noby Boy via YouTube (functionality that's built right into the game) and then follow that up with a video of yourself reenacting that little sliver of madness in real-life. Apparently, that was asking a bit much for a free t-shirt, as we didn't get quite as many submissions as we had hoped for. Hey, our bad. Lesson learned. Still, I wanted to give some props to the folks who threw down, so here are our winning submissions.

These young fresh fellows really embraced the contest in the best way imaginable, taking to the streets with their homemade BOY and getting sideways looks from the normals. Jeff liked this video so much, he declared its use of that M.I.A. song to be superior to the Pineapple Express trailer. And he really liked that trailer.


This guy filmed himself eating a donut, and he gets a kick-ass t-shirt for his efforts. When has anyone ever gotten anything from eating a donut but sticky fingers and an increased sense of shame? I bet you feel kind of silly for not entering now, huh?


Sometimes, your BOY will snap in half. And sometimes, you have to make your live-action video really short because your camera battery can barely hold a charge. Them's the breaks!

How original, I've never seen the whole run around dressed like an idiot and get strange looks skit before, especially at the local mall no less.    I'm only kidding,props for the work put in, but I call a tie between #2 and #3. But what does that matter, everyone's a winner at giant bomb!

I had not heard about it either. Congrats to the winners though. Amazing effort from the people who made the first video!

I feel like the second one really captures the spirit of the game.  Just some random dude eating a donut.  And then a cat comes and checks things out for a while.

This is exactly what my experience has been like with the game.
