Super Meat Boy vs Peta!

Posted by Edmund on December 1st, 2010 in Super Meat Boy!

UPDATE:
Tofu Boy is officially playable in the latest update on Steam!
To play as Tofu Boy type in " petaphile " on the character select, if you've done it you'll hear an unlock sound, select meat boy and you'll now be Tofu Boy!.

-Tofu Boy-
Pro: Inflated Ego.
Con: Not actually as effective as he thinks he is.




-------------

So as many of you know, the famed Peta organization took time out of their schedule to make a parody of Super Meat Boy, Super Tofu Boy. Honestly this is a major high point for me personally.

Putting all my cards on the table right now, I actually made fake user names in Peta's forum pushing the game at them in hopes something like this would happen, but gave up realizing that Peta wouldn't ever put effort into something "meat related" that was so small and unknown, that's exactly why this parody is so important and eye opening for us. (Edit: i made a user account over a year ago for the flash game, not recently)

Peta is 1000 times more well known then Super Meat Boy and the fact that they went out of their way to make a parody like this is beyond flattering and amazingly helpful.

First off I want to thank Peta for helping us turn Super Meat Boy into a house hold name and of course for making themselves look quite foolish in the process... see (as mentioned in countless interviews) Meat Boy isn't made of animal meat, he's simply a boy without skin whos name is Meat Boy.. but sshh don't tell them that.

Now dont get me wrong, i have NOTHING against Vegans or Vegetarians. I was Vegetarian for many years, and was an animal control officer who saved animals for a living for a long time, i empathize, understand and accept why people choose to eat, and live as they wish, and obviously i believe everyone should have the freedom to express themselves in anyway as long as it doesn't hurt others.

But.

I dont support an organization who is 100% against all animal testing, because that would mean my best friend in the world would be dead, not to mention his mother and many of my family members and friends who also are diabetic (animal testing is important).

But you came here to read about video games and flame wars via twitter so ill leave you with this.

Its hard to make a come back to a company that is high brow enough to compare concentration camps to chicken coops.. but ill try and close this with a joke that's a bit more light hearted.

How many Peta members does it take to change a lightbulb?....
None, Peta can't change anything.

4 years ago today Super Meat Boy was born. Since then the world has been constantly going down hill. Time for another Meat Boy game I think.  3 days ago
