His reaction was fucking priceless. What a sport.

#2 Edited by BeachThunder (11847 posts) -

Honestly, I would hate it if someone did that to me.

#3 Posted by punkxblaze (2972 posts) -

As a confused non subscriber, can someone elaborate?

A little, but hey, at least he got some alone time with the Rift. There's worse fates. Who knows, he could still be out there, driving into the sunset...proving he's Man Enough.

Wait, what happened?

#11 Posted by BIGJEFFREY (4956 posts) -

It was bound to happen, they were contemplating on doing it the last time they used the Rift.

They wanted to do this last time they used the Oculus but it didn't pan out then. Glad they managed to pull it off this time.

Alexis closed the show in style, the man cannot be fazed.

Ah, I just see the above picture and I immediately realize what happened. Heh, they finally did it.

@punkxblaze: Nothing good.

Wow, that's perfect. I'll enjoy watching that when I'm through the backlog of GB stuff I've yet to see.

I'm not sad for Alexis in the least. He perfectly played his part in the bit, and it was hilarious.

Even Alexis wasn't sad for Alexis

#24 Posted by MooseyMcMan (10914 posts) -

I was having internet troubles, and ended up missing a lot of the Man Enough and Alexis Occulus segments, but I got back in just in time to see that, and...

Yeah.

I bet Alexis was laughing right along with the rest of the crew soon after.

I do hope he took it in good spirit.

I laughed. Hard. But when he started talking about gears I started tearing up a little. I don't know if those were happy or sad tears.

It was so funny. Alexis seems to have a good sense of humor about himself, so it worked perfectly.

#28 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (5432 posts) -

He was a good sport about it. It was a fantastic end to a great UF.

#29 Edited by Fearbeard (826 posts) -

Didn't see it but looks hilarious. Hope it's on the archive version. Don't feel bad for him at all.

How is this different from that DSi XL video?

#31 Edited by insane_shadowblade85 (1421 posts) -

Nothing to be sad about, this is just friends fucking with each other. I've done this with friends and had it done to me before; mine involved a bustop, but I can't for the life of me remember what was covering my eyes,

#32 Posted by ch3burashka (5041 posts) -

I thought something terrible happened - I have no idea why I'd be sad about that; I have no idea why Alexis would be sad either. If he has a droplet of humor, he'll find that hilarious.

He did. He lifted up the Oculus Rift to ask Drew something, saw everyone gone with the lights down and he laughed and called them assholes. Then he put them back on and continued playing lol

ryan would be proud.

#35 Posted by EquitasInvictus (2025 posts) -

Oh man... I'm trying to imagine if a thread like this spawned after Creeper Cam Jeff's "breakdown" from way back when when they did Happy Hour's instead during the Whiskey Media days!

#36 Posted by Sin4profit (2924 posts) -

Oculus Rift, Racing Seat; I am nothing but jealous of Alexis.

#37 Posted by McGhee (6094 posts) -

Ah, shit. Wish I had been there.

#38 Posted by probablytuna (3619 posts) -

Hahaha looking forward to watching the archived version!

Vinny is amazing. Things like this are why I have and will always be entertained by Giant Bomb. Keep up the great work guys, I love it. Correction, we as a community, love it.

Oh man I really wish I was able to see this live. I love this site so much.

#42 Posted by JamesJeux007 (472 posts) -

That was soooo hilarious. They pulled it off perfectly. And the fact that Alexis took it so well AND managed to end the stream by himself added to the awesomeness. Probably one of my favorite endings along with this one.
