AIG Exec UFO Catcher – Coin-Op Solution to a Wall Street Scandal

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) may have suggested that executives of public money sink AIG commit ritual suicide, but animation artist Joaqin Baldwin’s approach to the new icon of corporate greed is far more diabolical. More fun, too.

AIG Exec UFO Catcher is Baldwin’s AIG-themed take on those coin-op claw machines that one finds in arcades and the lobbies of greasy spoon diners. You know, maneuver the claw to grab a small stuffed animal.

In Baldwin’s vision, however, players use the claw to collect AIG execs who are partying on the taxpayers’ dime. Trillions of dimes, actually…

Entertainingly, things just don’t work out so well with the claw feature.

Although the game is a bit NSFW, AIG hate is so rampant at the moment that even the most prudish of bosses will probably look the other way. After all, the boss is a taxpayer, too.

    To be fair, they’re contractually obligated to pay those people those bonuses, and Obama and his team knew that damn well well before this scandal.

    I know not anything about him, so I won’t comment on him in general. But his suggestion of them performing seppuku was a little…odd, to say in the least.

    I have a huge man-crush on Chuck "Norris" Grassley and am glad I voted for him when he was up for re-election.
