Another Nintendo Zapper Glock – Everyone Wants In On The Action When Something Goes Viral

This is how it goes.  One company is creative, and gets tons of coverage… then there’s always someone trying to get famous by doing basically the same thing:


Look familiar?

James-Bond-007-Tuxedo-NES-Nintendo-ZapperIf you recall, Black Sheep Arms made this original Glock Nintendo Zapper back in March and the internet loved it.  Jerry Miculek then shot it in a video where he dressed up as Mario.

The company who did this new one is called Precision Syndicate.  They did a pretty nice job on it, I’ll give them that.  I apparently just expect way too much out of people and companies though, because I really think that this description could have used a gentlemanly nod to the first guys who did it.  Since it’s the internet though, there are millions of people who will see the Precision Syndicate one and have no idea it was “done befo”.  Scrolling the comments, I don’t see any mention of the Black Sheep Arms one by anyone and there are ~150,000 shares on the post at the time of writing this.  I had to stop reading the comments after about 30 seconds, because I feel stupider than I did before I started.  I find that’s facebook in a nutshell… people seem to make it their job on there to always find something new to be outraged about.
