Mr. Awesome!

If you haven't seen The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters yet, consider it a priority. For it is in this amazing documentary that you get to meet Mr. Awesome, controversial world record holder for highest score on Missile Command. Posted below is an interview from the bonus features of the film's DVD, in which he promotes his book Mr. Awesome: The Comic Book Life of Roy Shildt. This clip will change your life.

And if you'd like to see something more recent, check out this video from the holiday party in 2006, where Mr. Awesome attempted to reclaim the world record on Missile Command, under new regulations. Before playing, Mr. Awesome had James AKA Blackboy sing a revised version of the national anthem, with lyrics written by none other than Mr. Awesome himself. As expected, it's awesome.
