Schadenfreudian Slips - 'Copy Protection Racket'

Since there were quite a lot of Starforce-related discussions on this very board:

NovaHammer’s CEO Sergei Glazunov arrived with three hulking assistants in matching black Members Only jackets and sunglasses. They declined to take them off (the jackets or the glasses). Mr. Glazunov introduced the men as Dmitri Karamazov, his brother Dmitri, and his other brother Dmitri. We offered them coffee cake, and since it was just after 10 am, beer. I began by asking them a little bit about their business.

“We protect your things. That is our business. Protection.”

“My things?” I asked. “But we make computer games.”

“Oh, of course. We can protect those too.”

Bruno whispered to me from behind a press kit folder. “I don’t think that word means what he thinks it means.”

“Mr. Morderhaschen, your company would be wise to use our protection.”

“What will happen if we don’t use your…protection?”

“Things could happen. You don’t want anything to happen to your computer games.”

“Are you threatening us?”

“No, no, I would not put it like that. But you would not want any of your computer games to get hurt, would you?” He gestured to his three burly compatriots.

Also, I’m sure that ‘Kopieren Sie Nicht Diesen Floppy-Disc!’ girl looks familiar…

Oh man, that is priceless.

They must be the three last members.

I’m still waiting for my copy of Accordion Hero.

Ich weiß nicht what you are talking about!

“Mooo~om you’d tell me if you were in a German sheisse video, righhhtt?”
