Gibson Turns Video Game Star
Mel Gibson has become the star of a new internet video game, racking up 700,000 hits in just three weeks. The game, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DRIVE, MEL? parodies the Hollywood actor's recent drink-driving arrest and anti-Semitic outburst in Malibu, California. Gibson is featured in the game as a caricature, and players are challenged to drive from point A, (a beachfront bar) to B, facing obstacles including tequila bottles, state troopers, and rabbis throwing Stars of David at Gibson's Lexus saloon car. The player's blood-alcohol level rises each time an obstacle is hit. A spokesman for the Lethal Weapon actor says, "We do not deem this worthy of comment."
