Ok, I have at least one person in my Neighborhood that plays Runescape, but everyone should be able to appreciate this horror:
If you can't see the picture very well, that is a pixelated white guy with a 'fro, aviator-style sunglasses, a party hat, and parachute pants.
It's like Disco Stu and MC Hammer had a kid or something.
Ok, granted, this is a game where a party hat is rare and in demand to the tune of several millions of coins in game.
This NPC was always wearing a party hat, though.
But to give a white guy an Afro and THEN put parachute pants on him, and then, before you release him out into the game, crow to the players about how groovy he is? Andrew and Paul Gower, what the hell were you thinking? *snort* Oh, that's right, you made the Times' list for the Top 100 richest people in the UK or something like that… you have people to think for you?
Hannah, please tell me that this is just some odd hallucination by two computer nerds, and not a real representation of what Brits consider funky. Actually, for a moment, those parachute pants looked like knickerbockers, and Party Pete was going to do the Little Lad Dance from this Starburst Berries & Cream commercial:
