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!

Posted by RedSox8933

Posted by TripMasterMunky

First video is pretty great and the clear winner. I like the syncing of the gunshots with the cop car.

Posted by LiveOrDie1212

Posted by ljgpliskin92

Posted by Kraznor

Good stuff, I do somewhat regret not entering now, especially in light of the donut video. Oh well.

Posted by HatKing

Pretty good job...kinda want to play this game now.

Posted by Brackynews

That's LARP second only to the Resident Evil 4 vendor.

Posted by TrulyAlive

I really wish I'd had the money to buy the game now ;_;

Posted by Bucketdeth

Hahaha the first video is amazing, great job guys.

Posted by BennytheDroid

The song from the first one annoyed me right away, and then annoyed me a lot more when I realized it uses a sample from the Clash song Straight to Hell.

I didn't even know this contest existed, not all of us get a chance to listen to the bombcast every week.

Edited by TwoOneFive

that was great, i want to do a new constest. 

bo17, its 4.99
if you cant muster up 4.99 then you shouldnt be on the internet right now.

Congrats to the winners.

Posted by logson

...b-but LARPing is supposed to suck...

Posted by bshirk

Props to the peeps who did the first video.  The second guy owes all of us a donut.

Posted by Scooper

That first video was super funny, I loved it when that guy ran away from BOY!

Posted by CoinMatze

Cat elevates the second one.

Posted by coffeesash

I guess I should have entered instead of writing the whole entry for Noby Noby Boy for Giant Bomb huh? xD

Posted by Origina1Penguin

"Can I speak to you guys for a couple secs with the cameras down..."

Posted by Hector

Haha that was great!

sweet. if i had known about the contest i probably would've entered, cuz i'm buying one of those noby noby boy t-shirts anyway.

Posted by get2sammyb

MIA!

Posted by Otacon

Three really funny vids, can't wait for the next contest!

Posted by FlipperDesert

Is it bad that I came up with a potential way to act-out the BOY eating its own ass after seeing the first video yesterday?

Posted by Johnny5

Wait....I listen to the bombcast every week and I didnt even know about it. O_o

Maybe its because I like to go to bed with it playing and I must have missed it...

Posted by BoG
Oh my gosh. Paper Planes. That takes me back to high school... last year. Some friends and I used to skip periods to get breakfast, and we'd blast this song as we drove around. When the chorus came on, we totally had these actions we'd do for the gun noises. Awesome song.
Posted by Red

Nice. The winner could've probably been a Mega64 video.

Posted by KingOfIceland

I, for some reason, like the 3rd one best.

Must be some dark voodoo mind magic at work there......

Posted by Kazona

I would say those are amazing, but I'd be lying if I said that.

Posted by SidVicious

awesome videos

Posted by CharlieTunoku

The next contest should be people replicating their experiences in their televisions.  or at Junes.

Posted by john_doe132

hey everyone i'm Brent the winner and maker of movie #1, check out the bombcast forum for more details and discussion about video, or Mega64.com user video forum

Posted by Steve_C

Mad props to that first video.
I have no means to buy noby noby boy atm. Sony need to release PSN cards over here. I wouldd have loved to enter though if i thought of something to do in the game.

Posted by hyperslug

Sweet!

I wanna thank the academy, Giantbomb, my cat and the doughnut company

anyway, i feel kinda like a douchebag for winning with that video (nr2 that is), the first one is like 100 times cooler!

Posted by Mandaray

Awesome. XD I love that guy's cat in the second video. But the first one is definitely best! I'm glad they won first place, they deserve it. Third one was cute too, if a little short.

Posted by Sin4profit

Aw, man now i gotta go find that MIA song. First video was pretty great. I thought they dubbed the gunshots in just for the scene with the cop car at first...masterful editing, friends.

Posted by Thejugglingbum

Would of entered but have no camera. That MIA song is shit. Not the shit. Just shit.

Posted by Death_Unicorn

OMG those guys in the first video are utterly fantastic.

Posted by Milkman

The first was great for about a minute but started to get a bit tiring at around the 2 minute mark. There wasn't much of a reaction from the people. Also, HATE Paper Planes. HATE THAT SONG! HATE, HATE, HATE! M.I.A. first album >>>>>>>>>> M.I.A. second, mainstream album. I'm just saying that because I'm a hipster douchebag.


The second video was obviously the winner though.
Posted by Stevokenevo

First video was cool.  The second one would have been waaaay better if the guy finished his doughnut, then went to take a bite out of the cat!

Posted by scurrybot

deny tomorrow

Posted by Media_Master

awesome

Edited by strangeling

Way to go guys!
