Paul posted the venture on TikTok and shared a clip to Twitter on December 26. He took 15 Recreation Boy Colours, together with what seems to be the limited-edition Pokémon-themed one and a dandelion yellow model, and enclosed them in a number of kilos of epoxy resin. After positioning and protecting the consoles in gel, Paul wrapped the tabletop with a steel Pokéball body.
He posted a shorter follow-up video showcasing how the desk lights up and modifications colours, going from blue to purple to purple to inexperienced and again once more. It really seems tight! It’s additionally a stable strategy to protect a few of gaming’s historical past by repurposing one thing outdated into one thing inventive and practical.
However, seeing because it’s the web, people are very pissed about this.
A number of folks bemoaned Paul’s sacrilegious act of “[putting people’s] happiness in an epoxy resin and [wasting] it,” to quote one consumer. Truthfully, individuals are freaking out! One other stated “drowning them” in resin wasn’t needed for the venture, whereas one other famous that different strategies—like a glass show—would’ve been “lighter” and “perpetually customizable.”
By far, although, people are most pressed about Paul allegedly destroying 15 Recreation Boy Colours. As a result of, you see, the handhelds he’s supposedly ruining are completely fantastic—in accordance with everybody’s hypothesis, anyway. By no means thoughts that Recreation Boy Colours are purchasable on each Amazon and eBay, along with secondhand shops, thrift retailers, and the like. And it’s actually not like he can do what he desires with what he buys. Heaven forbid.
Look, I’m not stanning Logan Paul. The dude’s achieved some questionable issues prior to now that hang-out his current. He’s additionally hardcore into the earth-destroying, resource-guzzling NFT grift, which…cool.
