Me: Welcome back to the Gamer Cave for another awesome interview. Today’s guest is…
Mac: Umm, we didn’t book anyone for today buddy.
Me: Wait what? How in the name of Area 51 did that happen?!
Mac: We invited Vic Inglewood over, but I guess he got stuck on a case. Then we got sidetracked with the newest Triple Tiger game.
Me: Oh yeah… Triple Tiger is awesome! (available at all major retail stores on your Gamer Genesis 128! Tell them we sent you!)
::The Gamer Cave lights start flickering::
Me: The government found us!!! I totally didn’t mean to hack into the Space Program’s computers!
Mac: This is what you get for trying to find out if they’re keeping aliens in Alaska!!
::A bright flash blinds the guys::
?(1): Whoa, we did it!
?(2): That totally worked! What’re we going to tell ourselves?
Jeremy: Mac is that you?
Two voices: Yes it’s me.
?(1): This is going to be confusing…
Mac: Ahhhhh! It’s a second me!
Jeremy: The government cloned us! (pointing at the imposter Jeremy) Who are you? Al Gore? Jeb Bush?! Answer me corrupt politician!
Mac(F): You guys must not beat Triple Tiger! It’s a weapon designed by the evil gl-O-bal Corporation that, when the final boss is defeated, triggers the rise of the machine army!
Jeremy(F): We’ve come all the way back from the future to stop this! Give me the game, quickly!
Mac: How do we know you guys are telling the truth? (winces eyes at future Mac) Jeremy, doesn’t this sound like one of my classic pranks?
Jeremy: You convinced future me to help build a time machine to come back to this moment to mess with me? Dude, that’s sick!
Jeremy(F): Listen here you knuckleheads, that game triggers the robot apocalypse! Do you want that on your conscious?
Mac(F): Seriously guys, listen to us. It’s not worth keeping the world records, the cash, the sweet sports car, and the mansion gl-o-bal Corp gives you because it’ll trigger the end of days.
Mac: Wait one sweet minute there skeptical future Mac… What’s this about fame and fortune? And why did we grow handlebar mustaches?
Jeremy(F): These? (pulls off mustache) We’re resistance fighters now and the mustaches are a disguise. Forgive me guys…
::Future Jeremy pulls out a ray gun and blows up the guys Gamer Genesis 128. Future Mac, for good measure, runs over and smashes the burning bits even further::
Mac: What the heck? Those mustaches weren’t real? Party Town must’ve really upped their game in the fake disguise department. (quietly) Note to self, buy stock in Party Town…
Jeremy: Triple Tiger wasn’t even in the system! We’d been playing Mega Boondock Bros…
::Future Mac spots the game on the shelf and blows it up with his ray gun::
Mac(F): Sorry guys, it had to be done, for the greater good you know. Spoiler alert – the next few months are going to be crazy!
Jeremy(F): Yeah, you never when you’ll save the world or something epically awesome.
Mac(F): And never give up on the Jericho Twins!
::with two thumbs up, the future doppelgängers vanish in another flash::
Jeremy: Hpmh, they didn’t even tell us if we got a new video game system. Jerks…
