World's craziest concepts from Geneva Motor Show

This 9-year-old is better than you at Guitar Hero

It's sort of like the perennial Rubik's Cube gag. You see some guy fiddling with the famous puzzle toy, saying something like "these things are impossible; nobody could solve this." At that moment, a plucky young tyke will come along, pick up the toy, and solve it within seconds. Now apply said gag to Guitar Hero III and the song "Through the Fire and Flames" by DragonForce ... on Expert. Watch the video above and see 9-year-old Ben crush every ounce of Guitar Hero pride you ever had. Gasp in terror as the boy even has enough time to glance away from the screen in order to smile at the camera. In the end, he winds up landing 95% of the notes and earning a score of over 750,000 points.

Now, if you'll excuse us, we're going to weep softly in the corner for a few hours.

Watch his pinkie. Some people even palm it. It's something alot of elite GH players do and you don't even notice it because it's in unison with the song. I didn't even notice the first times I watched it, but that's how crazy this kid is.

This kid's so legit, it's not even funny. He's a GH god.

But yeah, Heroin Hero. I don't think he'd make it. -_-

The "expert" players that I see rarely do the motion to activate star power, it's always the button press

there are so many ways this video can be proven wrong.

Something that I just realized: Where the Fuck is the Xbox 360?
