Kudos to A to Z pal Jason Harper for finding and sharing this video on Twitter. It's a montage of deaths in old video games -- Pong, arcade games and home gaming systems -- set to a MIDI version of Tears for Fears' "Mad World." The latter is rendered as a rather poignant 8-bit ditty with even more melancholy than usual (as if that was possible). Enjoy.
