Okay, KoopaTV really did it this time. This isn't a game announcement. This is real life. The last and only time KoopaTV cited anything from TMZ, it was from an article heavily talking about Mike Tyson. TMZ returns again for Punch-Out!! shenanigans.
"Now's your chance to kick George Zimmerman's ass with zero legal repercussions -- he just agreed to a celebrity boxing match ... and he says he'll fight ANYONE. [...]We tried to interview George Zimmerman about his inspiration, but he declined to accept it. Fair enough. However, it's pretty obvious that he must've played Trayvon Tyson's Punch-Out!! and was frustrated that he was only an NPC. Feeling that he would never be able to have the same kind of success Little Mac had in the virtual world (for a comparison of Little Mac and George Zimmerman, click here), Zimmerman decided to do this in real life.
Lately George has been more interested in boxing than guns ... regularly training in the ring. [...]
As for George's cut from the fight, we're told he's donating the money to charity.
If you'd like to throw your hat in the ring for the March 1 match, email firstname.lastname@example.org."
Currently, ex-gang member "The Game" wishes to destroy Zimmerman. While the fact that Zimmerman was inspired by a videogame to do this and then the name of his opponent being "Game" is certainly interesting, KoopaTV wants Zimmerman to fight someone else.
So we wrote to the National Action Network and MSNBC to draft the Reverend Al Sharpton. Zimmerman killed "Mad King Sharpnard" in Trayvon Tyson's Punch-Out!!, but what'll happen in real life?
|The two have some unfinished business?|
Subject: Zimmerman Boxing Draft Request
Ludwig Von KoopaDear National Action Network and the Reverend Al Sharpton,You can reply back to me at LudwigVKoopa(at)gmail(dot)com , but you really should be pursuing George Zimmerman and that hotmail address.
I'm Ludwig Von Koopa, and I represent the head of the media organization KoopaTV (koopatv.blogspot.com).
I'd like to formally request that Al Sharpton fight George Zimmerman in a boxing match.
If you haven't heard, George Zimmerman is offering to fight anyone on March 1,
and we're aware that the Reverend has prior experience in benefit boxing matches
(notably against CORE leader Roy Innis).
George Zimmerman is an enemy of civil rights, and I don't need to tell you at
NAN how much y'all would like to legally bring Zimmerman to justice.
According to TMZ, you just need to email him at email@example.com
KoopaTV thinks this would greatly benefit NAN's reputation, along with
the Reverend Al Sharpton as the true representative leader of the black community.
Thanks for considering,
Of course they haven't replied yet since I just sent that, but KoopaTV sincerely hopes that Trayvon Tyson's Punch-Out!! continues to reach new audiences. A real-life depiction of the events in the game would be absolutely amazing marketing and I'd be honoured.
As for Zimmerman himself, since a core tenet of his defense case was that he couldn't land a punch, we're left wondering why he ever had this idea. Maybe he really is delusional after all?
By the way, we have no idea who won against Roy Innis vs. Al Sharpton, but for Zimmerman's sake, let's hope it was Mr. Innis. Perhaps both are way out of Zimmerman's league. Regardless, just the very idea that something I made is influencing this man to do such ridiculous actions is really amazing.
^ Still amazing.
Ludwig will keep you updated on the Reverend's reply, and what will become of Zimmerman on March 1. He'll watch it closer than Yoshi's New Island!
