You know, that annoying bald guy with the barrette that smashed watermelons in front of a live audience, aka the most bored and easily amused people in all of America, throughout the 80s and 90s? Yeah, that guy.

Gallagher’s Gallery was a laser disc game (remember those?) that was similar to Mad Dog McCree. But instead of shooting actors dressed up as cowboys, you’re shooting cans of soup while Gallagher rambling on like an idiot the entire time.

Here’s an example of the game in action. It’s over six minutes long; I assure you, just the first minute is more than sufficient…

Seriously, how in the hell did this guy get as far as he did? And people believe America has serious problems today.

What'd you think of this?
