Dance Dance Immolation: FLAMES! GAMES! (Boing Boing Video)
This episode of Boing Boing Video is brought to you by http://www.wepc.com/. Experience the funky flaming glory that is DANCE DANCE IMMOLATION, a pyro-parody of the popular arcade game in which one jumps around on touch-sensitive pads underfoot in rhythm with music. But with DDI, you do this inside a fire suit, and if you miss a step, you get torched with a giant flamethrower. "Dance Dance Immolation combines video games, music, and propane. You play DDR. A good performance wins you acclaim from flamethrowers. A missed step gets you a face full of fire! Yes, the fire is real. Put on a fireproof suit and give it a try!" The contraption was created by the clan of happy mutant makers known as Interpretive Arson. We shot this at "How to Destroy the Universe," a yearly Industrial culture event which this year honored Throbbing Gristle's reunion tour.
