Real-Life Frogger Goes Horribly Wrong: Frightening or Funny?

For years, experts have debated whether or not violent video games like "Grand Theft Auto" and "Medal of Honor" set bad examples for kids, but a 23-year-old resident of Clemson, S.C., proved that even seemingly harmless games like "Frogger" can have ugly consequences.

According to WYFF4, a South Carolina news network, a man attempted to play a real-life game of "Frogger" on a four-lane highway with his friends on Monday night. The game, unsurprisingly, landed him in the hospital.

The report says that the man yelled "Go!" before running into oncoming traffic and being struck by an SUV.

He is reportedly in stable condition, and is not expected to file any charges against the driver of the SUV, officials say.

We just hope that if someone tries to act out a real-life version of Donkey Kong, they get it on video.

    Me, my boyfriend, and one of his idiot friends were debating whether or not to do something similar, but we waited for the light. "Frogger: The Real Game" became their catch phrase for months.

    I'm sorry but, after all the squashed frogs I have seen on a Golf Course through out the years, I have to say it's pretty funny.

    it's funny how stupid people can be. jeez. i played that game when i was in pre-school, and even then i knew it would be dumb to reinact it.

    ... he could have at least done it in the daylight when these people could see him and try to stop.

    I don't think they based this on Frogger... or not just on Frogger.

    Do you remember a scene from the movie "Dodgeball" where Patches says "If you can dodge traffic, you can dodge a ball"? I think that guy was thinking this as well.

    Since he lived...does that mean he's gonna try again? He's gotta make it all the way across the highway to win doesn't he? They should televise it as a public service announcement against stupidity.

    I'd watch. I'd bet it'd do wonders for Las Vegas gambling if he went for it again. Just sayin'......
