Tips for Buying EarthBound

February 27th, 2012 | EarthBound, Images

Over on Reddit, a fellow by the name of ericmerl made a post titled “I got Earthbound trolled by my wife…

Here’s how it went down:

Good thing he didn’t stick it in their Super NES right away 😛

I posted about these a while back (see here). If you want to do this or if you want to wash yourself with an EarthBound cart then head over to Digitalsoaps!

My brother did this exact same thing to me recently. Said he got his hands on an EarthBound cart and was sending it for my birthday. Turns out it was soap. My hopes and dreams were crushed 🙁

Uh… I don’t get it. Thats a completely normal EB. What’s wrong with it?

Sometimes pranks go too darn far… =(

I couldnt be the only one first viewing this thinking “here we go again, more angry EB fans” can I?

Anyways, tests kind of pranky! 😮 . Although I still think it’s a win to buy a soap EB. Still a nest piece Of merch

Dialga, it’s not an EB catridge, it’s a bar of soap shaped like a SNES cartridge with an EB sticker on it.

Can they make one out of chocolate next?

I guess this was the only natural response to the game’s marketing strategy!

DD said on Feb. 28, 2012

This game stinks…of green apple candy.

Imagine the response when you put it in the bathtub next to the bath soaps. “Honey, why is there a game cartridge in the tub?”

Leirin said on Feb. 28, 2012

I wanna do this. (Although I’m a bit afraid of someone actually putting it in an SNES before catching on…)

Erikku8 said on Feb. 29, 2012

If I had a wife, I would be happy about getting one of these. Of course, I’ll probably end up marrying a girl who’s not very interested in video games. I can’t believe the comments on that site, though.

John said on Feb. 29, 2012

Kinda fitting with how all the ads for the game were about how the game smelled and stuff.

Sam said on Mar. 8, 2012

That’s SO MEAN!! xD I would love to have that though.

Paula Polestar said on May. 23, 2012

This is as close as I can get to buying a real cart.

LOL: “This game stinks” becomes “This game smells awesome”
