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!

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

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.

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?

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...

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.

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

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

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

OMG those guys in the first video are utterly fantastic.

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.

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!
