gonna show you how to make some pointless crap
Ever wanted to make a custom NES out of a toaster?
The Nintoaster Instructional Video is a comical making-of video by Richard Daluz. It goes through the making of Daluz's second Nintoaster model (the one used by The Angry Video Game Nerd in his NES reviews starting with the Action 52 episode), in a parody of 80's instructional videos, encouraging other potential hobbyists to try the project. Only if they know what the hell they're doing, though.
Tropes seen in the video include:
- Don't Try This at Home: For obvious reasons.
- Flipping the Bird: Daluz does this to the narrator after putting on a makeshift anti-static wrist strap.
- Heh Heh, You Said "X": Twice, first about fitting the NES motherboard into tight spaces (giggity), and also near the end of the video when securing screws fashioners, bolts, clips, or knobs (*chuckles* knobs).
- Layman's Terms: On the original system's cartridge connector:We won't be using it because it's poorly designed. And it sucks.
- Long List: The list of items needed to make a Nintoaster (besides the NES and toaster) includes:But before we start, here's a short list of parts that you're likely to need throughout the video: a Phillips head screwdriver; a soldering iron; a desoldering iron; some solder wick; solder; an X-Acto knife; pliers; wire strippers; a drill or similar rotary tool; a digital multimeter; varying lengths of test cable with alligator clip ends; a smaller screwdriver set; a hot glue gun; plenty of extra glue; a lighter, which may come in handy later; epoxy; more epoxy; more epoxy; a good set of drillbits will also come in handy; electrical tape; measuring tape; a pen; painter's tape; Q-tips; extra lengths of spare wiring; and personal fuelnote .
- Running Gag: Whenever a part is recommended to be kept for safekeeping, it just ends up in the trash instead.
