The Watercooler

Warning: The Watercooler is the best thing you will see on the Internet today, mainly because it is the best thing I saw on the Internet yesterday. Be advised that The Watercooler is not necessarily videogame related (it usually won’t be), and is often silly, controversial, and/or not safe for work (NSFW). If this type of content frequently offends you, please be aware that I just warned you — if you still click through and get offended, it will be your own stupid fault. Otherwise, please continue…

Today’s Watercooler comes with a heavy heart. Michael Crichton, writer of novels-cum-movies Jurassic Park, The Andromeda Strain, Rising Sun, and many others, passed away yesterday after a long, private battle with cancer. This video is in tribute to him: a shot-for-shot remake of the Jurassic Park trailer using only garage sale items.

We’ll miss you, Mike.

  1. It is a sad day… Michael Crichton was very skilled with ninja sword and his boner knew no bounds, exceeded only by Cookigaki and William Shatner. Cookigaki does not approve of your passing!
