Guy Posts Tutorial Of How To Clean Donkey Kong Game, Unknowingly Removes Shigeru Miyamoto's Signature

NOTE: I was summoned for jury selection today so I have to go in and do that. I'll write what I can, but I'm pretty sure my day is gonna consist of eight hours of sitting around with no phone or any other way to entertain myself besides practicing crying in different keys.

These are a couple of shots from the tutorial blogger Johnnyboy of Damn Technology posted showing the step-by-step cleaning process of a handheld Game & Watch Donkey Kong game. He does a good job. So good he even unknowingly removes legendary game designer Shigeru Miyamoto's autograph from the front cover using nail polish remover, stating, "Its previous owner had taken the liberty to write his funny looking signature on the front plate." Somebody calls him out for it in the comments, but he claims it couldn't have been Miyamoto's signature because he bought it on eBay for $20, like people don't find fine art at yard sales everyday. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to call my grandma to see if she's ready to sniff out some deals. You know what they say, the early birds catch the worm. Or run out of gas and I make her push while I steer.

Hit the jump for a couple more shots of the autograph erasing in progress, then yell troll in the comments.

Thanks to Kuma, who would have had the signature reproduced and tattooed on himself like a normal person.

    The best way to avoid jury duty is to claim to have been involved in the crime, it's a serious conflict of interest.

    The second letter in that signature appears to be "8." No big deal, M8yamoto's signature isn't going for too much on ebay these days.

  • cardstock

    That's the joke.

  • oranberry

    Just not a very good one.

    He has a pretty well-known signature in the gaming world, you should know what it looks like.
