When my brother and I were in grade school, we lived across the street from a truck stop.
They had the Donkey Kong coin-op.

Our parents forbade us to play video games. But...!

When the semis were parked in front of the truck stop, they blocked the view of the entrance from our house.

My brother and I would ride our bikes behind the truck stop, and then sneak in through the hidden front door, using the semi-trucks as cover.

And thus...we played Donkey Kong!

I made this in After Effects for the Greyscalegorilla "Five Second Project: Old Video Games" challenge/exercise/happy-fun-time.
