Pundits: The Eyeball Monster

mr_i.jpg There’s a giant eyeball monster in Super Paper Mario that tracks you in every direction as you move around a room and shoots laser beams at you. To defeat it, Mario has to flip into 3D mode and run around and around it until it tries to shoot, gets confused, and implodes.

Eyeball monster = media pundits. Mario = ‘08 Presidential candidates. It’s fun to watch.

Oh, and btw: Speaking of life imitating Mario, Andy Towle’s right. The video for Janet Jackson’s new single “Feedback” is so Super Mario Galaxy.
