This past Tuesday, 23-year-old Lance Yezoff was “way, way off” in his estimation of how high he could score while playing Bop It.
According to witnesses, Yezoff saw the console on a shelf at a friend’s house and “snatched it up quicker than [one] could say ‘bop it.’” Yezoff quickly started fiddling with the toy with a nostalgic look in his eyes.
“Oh my gosh, I love Bop It! I’m the best at this! My high score is like 195 points,” Yezoff said, completely forgetting that the last time he had played the game was in 2007. Witnesses confirm Yezoff made it through eleven beats of the game before losing.
“What? What was that?” Yezoff allegedly said, believing he still had the hand-eye coordination of an eight-year-old child. “Boo. That wasn’t even the fast part. Trust me, guys, I’m literally a master at this shit. I usually get at least 100 points.”
Yezoff then allegedly played the game again, his second attempt earning 16 points. Reports confirm Yezoff called the console “defective” and dismissed his mediocre scores as “totally unusual.”
“Just a little rusty, that’s all,” Yezoff said, while tossing the toy away. “I still can beat my little brother at this, easy.”
Later that evening, Yezoff also overestimated his ability to play Simon.
