Longtime readers and TalkRadar listeners know Palette-Swap Ninja well - they're the musical duo who create video game-themed parodies of popular songs, sort of like an even geekier Weird Al Yankovic. Their latest, "Arcade Gaming Shrine," can be seen below, and was shot on location during the California Extreme arcade show with a little help from some friendly games journalists.

From frontman Dan Amrich, aka OneOfSwords:
"Arcade Gaming Shrine" is a riff on Bowling For Soup's "1985," which I'll admit I've still never heard to this day. But who needs the real version when there's one with Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter references?
