“Barrel Chucker” by Jared Moraitis aka BeastPop / BeastWreck
Who’s the second-best pop-culture gorilla in human history, right behind King Kong? That’s right, it’s the beast who gave Mario so much trouble, kidnapping his best girl Pauline and hurling barrels at the tenacious plumber with tireless rhythm and efficiency. I spent many a quarter trying to undo this ape’s machinations as a lad, and this is my loving tribute to DONKEY KONG. May he never run out of barrels.
