Ecstasy is some Tetris movie that I probably would've never watched, but now that this image has been leaked from a screening...I dunno. I suppose Jeff is only there for a few seconds though right? Anyways, here's the image taken by Chris Kohler:

From CES 1992

20 years latter and he basically looks the same

#3 Posted by Stepside (509 posts) -

Love it.

#4 Posted by Giantstalker (1602 posts) -

I would love to know the context behind this image, because as it stands, it's confusing as hell

#5 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7069 posts) -

He looks like a mobster in a really low-budget 80s movie. Fantastic.

#6 Posted by FengShuiGod (1480 posts) -

He got dat swagger.

#7 Posted by mrfizzy (1527 posts) -

Oh wow. So odd to see him that young. Come on Jeff, we want you to bring that hair back!

Somethings wrong he hasn't really aged at all!

Yeah, even that expression is exactly the same. Wait, does this mean Jeff's an android?

Oh my gosh. My brain just exploded from seeing that. Jeff may look a -tad- different, but he's almost exactly the same with that demeanor and smirk!

#12 Edited by the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG (4308 posts) -

this could be photoshopped.... 
 
 
**EDIT** 
Im not suggesting the picture's fake, Im saying someone could photoshop the image onto another one.

Or some crazy age defying magic cream

Is that a blazer? I've never seen Jeff class it up like that, except for tracksuits.

#15 Posted by SockemJetpack (408 posts) -

Now if only someone could dig up Jeff's public access TV show shenanigans...

That's the face of a child plotting his future reign as God. Shame he got saddled with game journalism.

It's a video of CES 1992, which was Jeff's first CES.

Oh I shouldve worded this better.....  I meant that this still image could be photoshopped onto another picture!  I know this is completely real!

We've got to wait for the blu-ray to come out for that, we can't go around photoshopping with low-quality pictures now, can we?!

If I remember correctly, Jeff says he wore it to look older and like he was supposed to be at those trade shows like CES when he was younger

Great!

That shit is way better than "Jar Time."
#27 Posted by TruthTellah (8716 posts) -

@the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG: heh. I see. Well then, yes, this would go great in some future photoshopped images. :)

#28 Posted by CaLe (3944 posts) -

So hot.

#29 Posted by Korwin (2836 posts) -

He's wearing a blazer, that's how you know he's there to do serious business.

#30 Posted by Redbullet685 (6031 posts) -

So... young... and sexy!

#31 Posted by SpicyRichter (510 posts) -

Love the sport coat. Way to class up the place Jeff

#32 Posted by TheHT (11088 posts) -

See, now this is just the sort of thing that trips me out about a lot of people I've seen. They look old! Well maybe old's the wrong word. They look mature! Like adults! When they're young! Even when they're young adults! All my life I've been seeing "high school" folks in TV shows who look like college students. Well now I'm older and know that they're are plenty of older actors who act in younger roles, but that doesn't change the real life high schoolers I see on TV that look like college students.

And then there's the college students that look like older blue/white collars. But on the flipside you've also got people in suits working in cubicles who look like youngins! IT'S A MAD HOUSE I TELL YA.

Yet everyone I knew from high school looked about how old I'd expect them to look. And in University it's the same thing.

*sigh* Anyways. Jeff kinda looks like that there. He looks like I'd expect him to look at his age now though. Also, he looks like a real rascal in that shot. Look at that sly smirk! He's up to something.

OK this all just struck me as odd. I'm going to bed. Maybe.

With that blazer, Jeff would make the perfect replacement for Reggie Fils Aime.

Jeff and Ryan really should wear blazers more often.

#35 Posted by probablytuna (3597 posts) -

Fucking brilliant.

#36 Posted by hojufixter (106 posts) -

@Aegon: Great find. Also, that coat is bad-ass

I think he was Barbershopped

#39 Posted by Yummylee (21467 posts) -

And to think he eventually went from King Swag of Princeton to bleach-blond hair & tracksuits... Talk about a fall from grace.

#42 Posted by ajamafalous (11935 posts) -

IIRC he talked about this in a Jar Time. Anyway, this makes this relevant again:

This just goes to prove that we all end up getting fatter with age. I did, and so did Jeff.

It's a good thing all that fat made us 100 times more fucking awesome.

Does that make me some kind of hipster when I was in school?

#48 Posted by NathHaw (2760 posts) -

@SuperJoe: Ah, yes. I see that now. I knew I knew the side of it but couldn't place it. Thanks.
