Irony of it all, there WAS a Dance Dance Revolution with Mario in it, titled "Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix"
In it, Mario must dance his way to his goals.
I remember when DDR was cool. I was there for the music. It got me hooked on European electronica bands.
However, with jokes such as "Dance Like an Idiot" from Regular Show and from Gravity Falls, a parody of the game "Dancy Pants Revolution", which, while there used to be arcade games in 7-11s and other convenience stores when the store in the show was shut down in May 1995, Dance Dance Revolution did not appear in America until the 2nd half of 1998. (I found that particular episode very unenjoyable with the fact that the food from a near-20 year old should have been rotting on the shelf.) Because of these jokes, I dare not reveal to anyone I was a groupie for the game.
So yes, DDR brings back the memories of dance to music in a freestyle mode I was in, dancing like crazy.
Sadly, I wish I could brush off JG Quintel's humor as staid and clichéd. But my mom likes the show and yes, I walked into that joke.
She also likes Gravity Falls. She understood how I pointed out every inaccuracy and anachronism as being part of my overthinking.
I like the picture, as it reminds me of my days going to arcades when I had the money.
