WHY GOD CREATED YOUTUBE™: "Rona Jaffe's Mazes and Monsters"

Do you like Academy Award™-winner Tom Hanks? Do you like the role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons? Then chances are you would not like Rona Jaffe's Mazes and Monsters, a 1982 TV movie starring America's Finest Actor® as a young man driven insane by the dangerous fantasy world of role-playing. I remember the buildup to when this aired on TV; schools were encouraging parents to encourage their children to watch it in the hopes that the Red D&D Menace would finally grind to a halt. Instead what they got was some amazing overacting, a monster that looked like it had the same designer and budget as the all the monsters on Doctor Who at the time, and a crappy, sappy ending where Tom Hanks' friends visit him in the loony bin and find he's become a hollow shell of a man, all thanks to role-playing. So there's a lesson for you, kids: Don't play Dungeons & Dragons, or you'll end up just like Tom Hanks.

Truly, this is why God created YouTube.
