Some Dude Made a Live Action Video of the SkiFree Game from Your Childhood

If you grew up with a computer in the '90s, you likely recall spending hours playing SkiFree, the addictive 16-bit downhill skiing game where you had to avoid crashing into rocks, trees, and of course, getting eaten by that damn Abominable Snow Monster. It's frustrating just thinking about all those times you thought you were skiing in the clear when the monster ran out from the trees and chewed you into a bloody splat on the hill, right? Well, filmmaker Andrew McMurry remembers the game so fondly that he created a live action video, bringing the monster to life. It's funny, gory as hell, and a nice little trip down the memory ski hill. Enjoy.
