July 25th 2011, on the surprisingly educational/entertaining History Channel show Pawn Stars, a man brought in a custom-made master chief suit and model assault rifle from the video game Halo.
The man, Ian, asked a mere $2,000 for the extravagantly nerdy item but that turd son of the Vegas-based Gold And Silver Pawn Shop owner Rick, Corey Harrison aka “Big Hoss,” wouldn’t give the poor man more than $200, originally offering a measly $100.
He even got up and demonstrated his Master Chief-impersonator skills, as seen in the acclaimed best-selling Microsoft series Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo ODST and Halo: Reach. Whew.
Shoulda gone on Craigslist or Ebay. Or held an auction at Comic-Con! God I love that game. Don’t get me wrong, it’s beyond over-the-top, but the dude put a lotta work into it and it made me feel teary-eyed in my brain.
