E3 Booth Babes Display a Painful Lack of Video Game Knowledge [Video]

By Jason Fitzpatrick on July 1st, 2011

If you thought a prerequisite for manning a booth at an electronics expo was a passing knowledge of the electronics and games you were promoting, you were wrong.

In the above video Chloe Dykstra puts a set of “booth babes” from the E3 2011 conference to the test by asking them simple questions about video games both new and old. If you’re a gaming fan and you can watch this video without laughing out loud you’ve got an iron will (or you’re shaking your head in disbelief that someone could work a gaming convention and not know the answers to these questions). We won’t lie, we were shaking our head when the one model admitted that she’d worked at GameStop for a year and still didn’t know any of the answers.

What questions would you put on list? How about “Finish this sentence: ‘Your Princess is in another…'”, “Dimension?”.
