As If Guitar Hero Wasn't Embarrassing Enough...
I already find myself having to close my blinds before daring to pick up my plastic Guitar Hero 3 controller. Well, the folks at City of Industry-based Jada Toys, Inc., thought pressing buttons on a fake guitar in a musical version of "Simon" wasn't embarrassing enough, so lo and behold we have the Guitar Hero Air Rocker! For only $29.99, you can now strap on the specially-designed air guitar belt and strum away on your electronic pic wherever you go! No game system necessary!
Jada Toys is giving demonstrations of this musical affront at CES in Las Vegas this week. We've posted the video above for those who can't make it, and need visual proof that we're not making this up.
