Best Moments in Submission Footage

Dear All,

We would like to make a compilation video of some of the best/funniest moments that people come across while watching and adjudicating score submissions. To do this we need help from the community.

If you see something amazing, cool or funny in a submission video, please post the link here along with a time stamp indicating where the highlights are, and we will see what we can come up with! We are particularly looking for instances involving funny/excellent commentary or good footage showing the submitter, but don’t be limited by these. Anything you think may make a good compilation video, we want to hear about it!

Disclaimer: This project will not divert time/resources from all of the fixes and improvements already on the list...

    5 to 15 Seconds for each.

    Dave, if Jace still has access to the original Steve Wiebe DK submission of 947K, the "Daddy, wipe my butt" moment needs to make the Top Ten list for sure.

    Otherwise, the Dwayne Richard moment during his level 100 "Joust 2 submission" where he goes into a barrage of cursing is another TG classic. He's in a stage with the robot, dies twice back-to-back, starts unleashing his tirade, and before he can finish it he gets killed twice MORE because he he is too busy cursing so he starts a new and even louder tirade.

    Definitely the two most memorable moments from my tape-watching days as a TG referee, that's for sure.

    I know of some hilariously embarrassing moments but I get the feeling you don’t want those

    Can't remember the specifics, but in one of Don Hayes' older "Centipede" submissions he survived with the "Centipede" heard reaching the bottom of the screen for more than 60 seconds straight battling furiously until he successfully exited the stage. I lent that one years back to Graham from Lincoln Center for his compilation and it really made the tape very exciting.

    Some gamers wear the darndest things! Orange pants. Can you believe it. There is also a video out there of a Donkey Kong person klongking their head on something when opening up the cabinet to take photos. An very painful sounding "oooooooooooooo" .

    makes me want to find the video I never submitted because my kids were in the background yelling at each other. not everyday you hear "shut up doo doo fart butt!!"

    i have several donkey kong videos where my wife is trying to talk about groceries, school, whatever movie she watched, her dumb coworkers etc etc.

    I know I sent you a few tapes over the years. Did you ever go beyond my submissions and get to the **** I left on the tapes? Not kidding.

    RTM REPLY - Hi Hector. My apologies but I do not remember the specifics. Of all the performances that I validated covering 1600+ tapes plus multiple ACAM events, only a small handful of moments of "banter" stick out in my mind. I don't even remember the closing moments of Brandon Erickson's 285M "Star Wars" marathon performance although I am sure that I made mention of anything of significance in the article that I subsequently wrote. Same for most of the WR performances and other submissions over the years.

    Please take no offense...I barely remember my own words to Walter after setting the new "Scramble" record way back at ACAM 2000 or 2001.
