Rock Band Is For Everyone

I bet you could start an entire blog full of photos of crazy/confused people trying out Rock Band and Guitar Hero at Best Buy kiosks.

I bet you could start an entire blog full of photos of crazy/confused people trying out Rock Band and Guitar Hero at Best Buy kiosks. Here are two that I took today when we were swinging by to pick up a copy of Samba de Amigo for the Wii.

For the record, she was putting on Wanted Dead or Alive by Bon Jovi and then just sort of holding the drumsticks and "dancing." It would eventually fail out, so she'd just restart the song. Not long after this, I saw her arguing with her Old Man about prepaid cellular phones.

Totally
Awesome.

Jeff, it's probably not a good idea to take pictures of random girls in stores.

However, that doesn't change the fact it's funny as hell.

Fantastic.

Old man...  or pimp?

Taking pictures of teenage girls playing Rock Band 2? Isn't that against your parole, Jeff?

Posted by MaxMax

Dancing to Bon Jovi? Def my kind of chick.

You dirty man.

@ Milkman:

Shh, maybe "they" won't find out about it.
Posted by Phished0ne

i would have to agree with the people above, although it is humorous, taking picture of random women in best buy cant be a good idea.

Posted by Anderson

Haha, looks like a hooker.

Leopard print heels...srsly?  And how do you not want to actually drum?

Posted by ColumnBreaker

I can't really tell if that's a really short old woman with a wig or a really young short girl with a wig. It'd be funnier if she was old, though.

This is... kind of awesome. Though I would have to say that it is indeed a little creepy that you're taking pictures of random girls and then posting them on the internet, Jeff.

I think Jeff just violated the restraining order against him.

@CynageN

Really short old woman with a wig.

hey, thats me!

Posted by dQuarters

Are you telling me this isn't a cougar? Or do you mean "her old man" as in trailer-speak for "husband"?

To me it just looks like Blind Kenshi in drag.
Posted by DeepSpace9MM

Damn. Those California gals sure have class....and maybe a mild case of schizophrenia.

This could also be filed under what girls to go looking for to ask on a date.  Go Jeff!

Posted by HatKing

I love the description of how she plays the song.

Posted by slashdotdot

How I love random posts like this.

But Giantbomb needs a new camera really bad, those pictures are as blurry as the line between "gaming enthusiast" and pervert.

For therecord, she was putting on Wanted Dead or Alive by Bon Jovi and thenjust sort of holding the drumsticks and "dancing." It would eventually fail out, so she'd just restart the song.

I would have PAID to see that hilarity.
Posted by yellownumber5

Get video next time.  What is on her head, a blindfold? or something.  Please don't tell me girls in SF dress like this all the time.  In my town she'd be a stripper or a coked up clubber... well nevermind that's the same thing.

Posted by ahoodedfigure

leopard prints, FTfail

Posted by DiGiTaL_SiN

Creepy stalking at the Rock Band kiosk.... nice.

Posted by ratzombie

Did you get them digits, Jeff?

Posted by jhosaphat

She looks like a an 80's metal singer....

Posted by Brasky

jeff can we get an update update on that pic is she blindfolded to complete that "disguise"?

Posted by ValiantGoat

She looks exactly like I'd expect a Bon Jovi fan too in the wild.

Posted by RHCPfan24
I see stuff like that all the time. What an outfit!
Posted by RHCPfan24
This looks great.  I already preordered the game and I can't wait for it to come out. With Banjo-Tooie also coming out, it looks like only Perfect Dark and GOLDENEYE are left.
Posted by carlthenimrod

I've seen a couple of 14 year old kids at my local best buy trying to play the drums. After failing out 4-5 times they went on a rant about how the game sucks and Guitar Hero is better. Needless to say, it was pretty damn funny.

Posted by yaoigamer

That's a dude !

Posted by EndlessMike

Wow, people still dress like that in California?
