That guy has to be a member of EAB. He's obviously a retro-gaming nerd like all of us - people on this board do similar hardware hacks - come on, own up! Who is it?

I can't see the video...
The webpage loads, and then the video remains on hold/loading (black, with the whirring icon inside). Tried with Firefox and IE but no luck...

Mmm, nothing even with the new 10.xxxx version (tried with FF and IE).
I suppose it's an Internet problem, since I can see some other videos on that website, but some not.

Am I the only one having problems?
Is there a Youtube video of it?

EDIT:

This works for me! Is it the same video?

EDIT#2:

Don't mind, the above doesn't work. It shows the first frame and keeps "loading" forever

That's got to be the only time he's ever got a real girl into his bedroom without the use of rohypnol.
