What’s The Opposite Of A Fast Blue Hedgehog?

Here’s some complete nonsense to kick off your Thursday morning. A fly-on-the-wall mocumentary of the birth of one of gaming’s most iconic characters. It’s not Pong 2.

I’d have liked a few more big gags, but if you don’t laugh at the answer to the question titling this post, then I’m CROSSING OUT your birthday on my calendar.

I’m fairly sure that’s how it happened.

This is by Beasts, and appears to be their first upload. I’m interested to see what they do next.

    Pretty sure the opposite of a fast blue hedgehog is a red brick.

    Edit: almost guessed it.

    I’m pretty sure the opposite of a fast blue hedgehog is an orange traffic cone.
    Sonic must fight Glasgow’s statues.

  3. Zaphweazle says:

    wouldn’t it be a fast blue hedgehog – running backwards?

    • DragonOfTime says:

      According to particle physics, it should also be yellow.

  4. Jekhar says:

    Fools! Plumber Mushroom World could have been a classic, i tell you!

    • DonJefe says:

      The whole idea is nonsense and you know it. It will never work!
      Next you are going to tell me that they are plumbers out to save a princess or something.

    • Gap Gen says:

      I’m putting all my investomonies in green hair blow up mammals.

    I’m sure it’s Dankey Kang

  6. Syra says:

    I was amused.

  7. Spoon Of Doom says:

    I saw this yesterday and it was great. I love how they come up with a name for their hero at the end.

  8. altum videtur says:

    … is that what it looks like when MENSCHEN do business in a high tension environment?
    Thank fuck I will never be employed by anybody.

    • Syra says:

      You’re missing out.

    • Grygus says:

      No, this is how it worked in the halcyon days of yore. Nowadays, one receives an incomprehensible e-mail full of grammatical errors from the CEO, writes the code for what one assumes must be the intent, and is then laid off with a hearty “job well done!”

  9. Gothnak says:

    That is what i do every day at work… Except that guy can draw better than i can.

  10. Rizlar says:

    Fuck limpits! (╯°□°)╯

  11. DizzyCriminal says:

    Sonic the Hedghog was internally known as “Project Needlemouse” at Sega during development… I think.

  12. DrollRemark says:

    This is basically just the children’s story ideas scene from Black Books, isn’t it?

    Still pretty well done though.

  13. sonofsanta says:

    Brilliant. Very Graham Linehan/Simon Pegg. That is not a bad thing.

  14. SuicideKing says:

    This reminded me of the IT Crowd, with a very aggressive Jen, and lots of “fuck”.

  15. UpsilonCrux says:

    How strange. Halfway through enjoying this video my brain did a double-take. I know one of those guys!
    So that’s where he ended up. Congrats!

    “Good! What does he collect?”
    “Eugene, you’re fired! Get out!”

    Missed out on a golden gaming gimmick right there!
