With X and Y coming out officially tomorrow, and it being Friday, I thought I'd share something funny with you guys. My old high school runs a broadcasting channel with a show called TGIF (or Thank God It's Friday), which is a show run by the students, for the students, and played every Friday morning. Long story short, several years ago when I was either a freshman or sophomore (can't remember), they decided to do a spoof on pokemon, and parodied the trainer's journey in Kanto which spanned over a few airings. They filmed in and around our high school area, putting together this parody with help from volunteer teachers and students.

I recently rediscovered the parody on youtube, so I thought I'd post them here for anyone that would appreciate both humor and a good throwback to the days of Red, Blue, and Yellow. It's pretty amateur and silly, but I remember laughing my butt off when I first saw it in school, so I applaud the team that put this together, considering they probably didn't have the best filming and editing equipment available. I hope you have a laugh or two! Happy pre-launch Friday!!! ^_^

Unnecessary fun facts about my high school:

1. The person playing Professor Oak was my English Literature teacher, and my favorite teacher in high school. And yes, he really is named Lance. ^^

2. The Carrmander joke refers to Mrs. Carr, the director of the ADV Dept, notorious for her death stare.

3. My old high school locker is one of the many visible in the Vermillion Gym scene. Not really important, but hey.

All the videos are in order:

Haha, that's fine. I'm getting X, hopefully on day 1 provided I manage to get a ride to the store. Lately though, I've been considering perhaps getting Y as well when I have more money, depending on whether I can get all the megastones with one game or not.
