MIKE TYSON'S PUNCH-OUT!! (Teens React: Retro Gaming)
Rambo Day was on July 26, 2014. Dana Saint was getting married in August…so, we all got together to pay tribute to him with an elaborate, surprise bachelor party. We want to thank our amazing group of FRIENDS for supporting this vision, and giving their time + energy to pull off something special. This NEVER would have happened without you all....especially Brian Rosso and Colin Bennett. It was an amazing day that we’ll never forget…so, we hope you enjoy our attempt to turn Dana into an action hero for a day.
That's all for today, folks! Be sure to check back tomorrow for more movie-related geekery.
