Apparently, Japan Doesn’t Have A Monopoly On Bizarre Gaming-Related News

I'm getting WAY too much enjoyment out of this reaction pic!

I’m getting WAY too much mileage out of this reaction pic.

Kotaku reported that a robber at Nashville, Tenn., stormed into a GameStop store to made off with an XBoxOne and three games. The beauty of it is that the armed robber had called in pretending to be a customer looking for gifts for his kid, and made sure the shop had reserved all of the goodies he’s going to filch beforehand. Now, I’m not one to tip my hat to criminals, but if you managed to pull off something as borderline Keyser Soze-esque in brilliance and simplicity like that, I will show no hesitation to applaud you, good sir.

That is, until I realized that one of the games that this criminal mastermind  filched was “Just Dance 2014”.

Let THAT sink in for a sec.

This is baffling to me on so many levels. It might be understandable that the crook stole the XBoxOne to re-sell it and use the money to buy drugs. It might even be understandable that he wants to keep it for himself, since the other games he stole consisted of “NBA2K14” and “Call of Duty: Ghosts”, two titles that I could totally see being in a convenience store robber’s gaming library. But Just Dance 2014? Why? So he could look good in “So You Think You Can Dance: Prison Edition”?

Additional description of the suspect was detailed as 5’8 to 5’10, around 220 pounds and between the ages of 20 and 30. He was wearing all blue with brown boots, and white gloves, and was spotted to have driven away in a Nissan Versa. If any of you live in the Nashville area, please, please help put away this man behind bars, because he clearly lacks class.

A classy robber would’ve gone for “Michael Jackson: The Experience” instead.

Too soon?

Too soon?
