When Mortal Kombat hit the scene, it was crazy popular. Enough for some UK show to fly in two of its mo-cap actors to play the game, in character. Hey, bet it was a decent paycheck at least.
The above is an excellent example of how wacky gaming was back in the 90s, as well as how how wacky the 90s were, period. Oh, and how most stunt people are at their best punching other, and not delivering lines of dialogue.
I’d like to believe that they were the ones actually playing the game, but I also believed Santa and wrestling was real far too late in life. By the way, my fave YouTube comment at the moment:
“liu kang came to talk at my school one time and he pointed to this fat kid kenny and told him he had a boner and all the people laughed at him so he would never play him on the seger genesis”
