OMG, this gotta be one of the most hilarious thing I've ever seen online

I was listening to NPR's Studio 360 interview with the producer of This Spartan Life {sounds a lot like a famous show This American Life with Ira Glass.

OK I am a NPR junkie, so sue me.

In a nutshell, "This Spartan Life {TSL}" is basically a typical semi-serious NPR-style talk show hosted by Damian Lacedaemion inside the video game HALO.

HALO is a first person shooter. If you aren't sure what it is, google it.

He has two friends who serve as cameras. Their point of view is the camera angle, and they record the "cameras'" xbox video outlet and that becomes the video feed. He conducts the interview inside the game while the game is going on.

The means during the interview, they get shot at and have to run to another place to continue the interview while their bodyguard disintegrate the sniper with his pulse rifle. Or talk about the director's first kiss from his Indiana Jones' indie remake while copters blasting tons of people off a cliff right behind them.

It's absolutely nuts. Go to their website and watch an episode, you won't regret it.

I am watching Episode 5 as we speak.

In this episode Damian Lacedaemion was interviewing Eric Zala and Chris Strompolous, makers of Raiders of The Lost Ark - Adaptation, when the bodyguard accidentally launches a grenade into their feet and killing Chris. They had to find him again and continue the interview.

"Mistakes were made," said Damian Lacedaemion.
