Beat the Claw

posted by on July 14 at 8:20 AM

Thanks to the ingenuity of a child, we all finally know how to get that lobster harmonica.

Can anyone tell if she had a prize when she came out? The speed with which her mom gets her out of there leads me to think she was in on the scam.

I need to commandeer your vessel to Sector 12. Who's in charge here?

I don't think the mom was in on it... and what is up with the anorexic stick-arm woman (who's laughing her ass off around 2:16)?

Me personally, I'd have started unloading quarters into the thing and attacking with the claw until my tot decided to retreat back down the chute... so maybe it's good I don't have kids.

Thanks for a good start to the morning. That wee child needs a scholarship to MIT.

The speed and efficiency by which the kid crawls in there make me think that it was not her first time.

Uh yeah and the fact that Mom wasn't freaked. I'm fairly certain my dear Mother wouldn't have yanked me out but would have had that machine opened up if she had to destroy it herself.

This woman is obviously the leading supplier to the black market for crappy toys pilfered from vending machines...

I love the way the guy washing the windows is unrolling the paper towels and going, "Whoa - there's a kid inside that machine! Wow...OK, back to work..."

Hm, Isn't this really just a trailer for "MI:4"?

All I know is that some store really needs to upgrade their security system. The picture sucks.
