Poll: How sad are you for Alexis? (490 votes)

Somewhat 11%
Vinny is the best (!) 73%

Unprofessional Fridays took an even more unprofessional turn in this weeks installment. This continues the dramatic downward trend of professionalism on the show. Please only vote if you saw what has just transpired literally minutes earlier, we need pinpoint accurate results of the feelings of the Giant Bomb community here. Please feel free to use this thread to provide support to Alexis in his time of need.

His reaction was fucking priceless. What a sport.

#2 Edited by BeachThunder (13067 posts) -

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

#3 Posted by punkxblaze (2993 posts) -

As a confused non subscriber, can someone elaborate?

#4 Posted by FriendlyPhoenix (520 posts) -

His reaction was literally perfect.

#5 Edited by Aristotled (45 posts) -

Crap, I left the stream early, what did I miss?

#6 Edited by TheHT (12265 posts) -

Racing life ain't for everyone.

#7 Posted by Original_Hank (165 posts) -

did he puke?

#8 Posted by Zacagawea (1649 posts) -
#9 Posted by Quarters (2085 posts) -

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.

#10 Posted by Bobstar (359 posts) -

Wait, what happened?

#11 Posted by BigJeffrey (4969 posts) -

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

#12 Edited by Hassun (2777 posts) -

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.

#14 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19813 posts) -

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

#15 Posted by SunBroZak (1671 posts) -

@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.

#16 Edited by TruthTellah (9631 posts) -

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

#18 Posted by Yummylee (23192 posts) -


But no it was goddamn perfect and was hilarious, especially Alexis' reaction.

I couldn't stop laughing. That made my night.

Fuck this misleading thread title

But what happened makes up for it

Even Alexis wasn't sad for Alexis

#24 Posted by MooseyMcMan (11930 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...


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

#25 Posted by Cerberus3Dog (535 posts) -

I do hope he took it in good spirit.

#26 Edited by csl316 (10599 posts) -

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.

#27 Edited by Roger_Klotz (805 posts) -

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

#28 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (6258 posts) -

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

#29 Edited by Fearbeard (863 posts) -

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

#30 Edited by chrismafuchris (1154 posts) -

How is this different from that DSi XL video?

#31 Edited by insane_shadowblade85 (1620 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 (5490 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 (2067 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 (3160 posts) -

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

#37 Posted by McGhee (6128 posts) -

Ah, shit. Wish I had been there.

#38 Posted by probablytuna (4121 posts) -

Hahaha looking forward to watching the archived version!

#39 Posted by JBG4 (672 posts) -

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.

#40 Posted by ConfusedOwl (1012 posts) -

So this is the shit I miss when I'm not subscribed? So glad I got to see this.

#41 Posted by Oscar__Explosion (2655 posts) -

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

#42 Posted by JamesJeux007 (556 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.

Well, the poll was posted 1 year 2 months ago according to the OP, so if you go back 1 year and 2 months in the archive you get this:

@starvinggamer: Yeah, I found it, but I didn't know which one of the 4 it was, or if the site rounded up the month even if it wasn't a full month, but I found it. IT's awesome!
