Almost Game Over for Man Playing Real-Life 'Frogger'

Sometimes moving video games form the screen to real life can be fun and interesting, like the Pac Manhattan event. But 'Pac Man' is largely harmless. 'Frogger' on the other hand, makes for a much more dangerous game. And, no matter how funny you think the infamous 'Frogger' episode of 'Seinfeld' is, it's not a good idea to try and reenact it. Sadly, our advice is too late to stop a man from Clemson, South Carolina who thought it sounded like a great way to pass the time. His friend, who probably should have been trying to talk him out of it, shouted "go" as he began to pick his way across Highway 123. The man didn't make it to the other side. A Lexus SUV struck him, but, thankfully, didn't kill him.

The 23-year old was taken to a local hospital, and is in stable condition. But let his foolishness serve as a warning to the rest of you. Retro arcade games are plenty fun when played via the safety of joystick, but they're not to be acted out in real life.
