Video of the Day: Gaming with Mom

What do you get when you hand a middle-aged mom a video game controller for the first time ever? Winning phrases like, "I'm a natural killer, Drew!"
Ten Ton Hammer Video of the Day

Whoa, Mamma!

Mostly, I'm not much of a fan of Jimmy Fallon. I don't watch Late Night because I'm a gamer, and I have better things to do with my evenings than watch TV. (Huh. Come to think of it, maybe that's why G4 didn't quite work out.) Despite my aversion to TV, YouTube found this for me, and I have to admit it's funny. Jimmy asked viewers to send in videos of their moms attempting to play video games, and hilarity ensued.

Some memorable lines:

Mom: I like girl fighters. Is that a girl?
Dude: No, that's a robot.

Mom: What is juke? I wanna do that! I wanna juke!

Mom: I'm a natural killer, Drew!

Eh, just watch it.

Of course, as a mom and a gamer, I'm keenly aware that not all moms are clueless with a controller in their hands. Maybe I should've sent in a video of myself owning my kids' asses at Tekken.
