I made an offhand joke about Teen Beach 2 that I didn't expect anyone to even notice, but it actually started a bit of buzz. In his infinite wisdom, Christian suggested to me, and I'm paraphrasing here, "Let's just fuckin do it."
In an ideal world, we'll both be able to watch the movie and get a conversation going by the end of the weekend, similar to the timing for our GMW reviews.
As a sort of appetizer for that exciting event, I recorded two let's-play style videos of Disney's official Teen Beach 2 game, "Beach Bop Adventure" over on the Disney Channel website. Both videos are only a couple minutes, don't worry. The game's audio is louder than it should be in the first one, I apologize, but it's fixed in the second.
*edit* Blogspot sort of wrecked the resolution, which you'll notice if you watch in fullscreen, but life goes on.
So there you have it. The pixel art is genuinely charming, and the (limited) soundtrack is really catchy. I enjoyed it thousand times more than I expected, and I'm hoping I can say the same for the movie.
Anything you wanna add here Christian?
Sorry, just seeing this now. I should really get email updates about when there's a new post or something. The only thing I have to add is that I have given myself a rule for this project, and that's that I solemnly vow to not learn a thing about Teen Beach 1 for this. If I'm confused or need context, I will not look into it, I will only glean what can be gleaned from Teen Beach 2. I will, however, be making several assumptions about the original, probably.
When we doing this, Sean? I'm starting to watch it now. Not sure I'll wanna do it one sitting.
