the underbelly

If DDR doesn’t do it for you….

Maybe this will.

Some Belgians have come up with a video game system-type-thing controlled by players hitting censors with their urine.  Yep.  It’s called “The Place to Pee” (because apparently Belgians aren’t the most creative of namers) and if I controlled the world it’d be coming to a bar near you.

Werner Dupont and Bart Geraets thought up the idea over trappist beers one night.

“This thing had to be invented by Belgian people and that’s what we are,” they said.

I don’t really know what that quote means exactly.  Why did it have to be invented by Belgians?  I can just as easily see a drunk American, even a Canadian, coming up with the concept.  In fact I’m pretty sure that if you a person who drinks on a regular basis to the point of intoxication you have thought of this idea yourself.  You’re at the bar, you’ve had a few, you go to relieve yourself…I’m bored, you think to yourself as you watch the ice melt in the trough or read the angry, man-hating poetry carved into the stall door…and then it hits you!  If only my pee made a man on skis navigate down a slope!  It’s brilliant!  Genius!!  You run back to your buddies, start yelling your business plan at them like you’re telling them which wire to cut on a bomb but then another round arrives.  You take a swig and some one mentions how awesome nachos would be right about now…yeah, you think, nachos…..

Anyway.  The Belgians don’t have nachos.  So now they’re going to make millions with their peeing game.  I guess they win.
