BDPE - Segata Sanshiro: The Legend

Well and truly inspired by J (see below). It's time to air (for AT LEAST the second time), this mini documentary about the greatest man to ever walk the earth - (possibly).

The great Segata Sanshiro! Without him the world would have crumbled into a thousand pieces, the oceans would have evaporated and the tears of a billion babies would have gushed to take their place...

OK none of that is true, but without shadow of a doubt, he has got to be the single best advertisement campaign for the Sega Saturn (something we in the west never managed...)

Had Segata graced our screens, the Saturn would still be selling like hot cakes and the 128bit era would never have arrived - there simply would have been no need! Watch with a tear in your eye, as this documentary unfolds...

Fantastic video. Except for the narrators voice, 'twas a bit annoying.
