German Kid Loses It With His Computer Game

Someone should have told the poor kid in this clip that Unreal Tournament is just a game and that you shouldn’t try to replicate what happens in it in your own bedroom. This is 4 and a half minutes of wailing, smashing, desk-sweeping, computer-assaulting and general all-round frustration which would be tragic if it wasn’t so goddamn funny. The root of this tetchy German kid’s annoyance is the fact that his game won’t load fast enough – what a terrible thing! It’s not like he’s going hungry or sleeping rough or anything like that.

The camera angle in this sequence is great: we get to see this kid up close and personal as his face gets redder and he starts to say and do more and more hilarious stuff. The funniest thing has to be his curious demand that the computer should ‘eat its melted shit’. It takes quite a lot of imagination to work out how precisely that would happen but never mind. The English subtitles translating this German kid’s poisonous words are very helpful and we get a real glimpse into the sheer range of colorful Teutonic swear words that exist.

It must be the case that this kid will grow up to be one of those anger-fuelled old men with permanently sour faces who rant about everything from the weather to their granddaughter’s boyfriend to the sports results. Even when this kid gets the computer game working he doesn’t cool down, breathlessly, almost worriedly asking ‘Which son of a bitch is shooting at me?” before losing the game at the very last minute of the clip and wailing like a banshee who’s just seen his entire family killed in a freak accident.

He moves gear up into a horrible Mike Patton-style squeal and begins beating the £$*& out of his keyboard against the desk, its buttons flying every which way. Where are his parents while all this is going on? Somehow the kid’s announcement that ‘I don’t want to wait I want to play!’ at the 1 minute mark seems to sum up his whole generation.
