Pineapple Express Gives Us Another Reason Not To Do Work

Assuming that people hyped up about The Pineapple Express have jobs, and that those jobs don’t include eating Doritos and playing Gears of War, the movie has given us something new to keep us from getting those TPS reports filled out.

Head on over and check out The Pineapple Express Video Game. Go ahead – I dare you to top my high score of 32,550 points.

It’s pretty sweet, in all of its 8-bit style, retro glory. It has a touch of the original Donkey Game, if Mario had to avoid anthropomorphic pineapples and grab munchies along the way. However you slice it, it’s the mindless sort of diversion that every nine-to-fiver is longing for as an alternative to working on the annual budget or paying those pesky loan sharks to keep off your back.

So if you’re tired of being gainfully employed or if you want to take a break from being a stoned slacker playing video games to playing a video game about being a stoned slacker, this should be the first thing on your list. Although I doubt you make lists. Or have life goals.
