He's done this many times with different "games" but this particular one has LEGO people so I think you fellas will like it the most.

DEMO NOIR: a theater piece disguised as a doomed software demonstration.

In other words, it’s a play, but written and staged to fool people into believing that it’s just another public demonstration of a software product…for awhile. Then it all gets very strange…

So at the start, every technical claim made about the software is either a lie or misdirection. The goal is to keep the audience believing it’s an actual demo, no matter how absurd or bizarre it gets.

Originally, the name for this fake software group was “GRRF: The Gaming Response Research Foundation”…

Ars Technica wrote an article on one of the 2009 performances.

 

Oh my god this is legendary.

I'd just like to point out that the minifigure models in this are from a neat overhaul mod for Quake III Arena:

I guess I'll put the link here as well in case anyone owns the game or wants to explore the .pk3 data files (they're just .zip files so you can change the extension or extract with a file archiver program to access everything in them)
