Vids featuring coloured lights reminiscent of the game SIMON

Back in the olden days, way, way, waaaaaaaay before Donkey Kong was being weaned on mashed bananas, there was this totally wild “computer-controlled” game called SIMON.

And SIMON looked like this:

See, what happened was, lights would flash in a randomly generated sequence (see note about it being “computer controlled”), and you repeated this sequence by touching the light pads. If you got the damn thing wrong, SIMON buzzed at you, tersely.

GAME OVER, loser.

Your dad, suspicious of most technology, would scream from the livingroom:

“What the hell is going on there? Keep that cacophony going, and you’re not watching CHiPS!”

Tears of blood would then stream from your eyes in the pure frustration of it all.

Here are a few vids featuring coloured lights reminiscent of the game SIMON.
