Das Racist Retro Game Homage

Brooklyn, NY-based rappers Das Racist have released a flash game to promote their brand new single "Who’s That Brown" on the group’s official web site (thanks Game | Life). The simple Flash game is interesting because it pays homage to several classic games through various sequences using gameplay mechanics borrowed from games such as Double Dragon, Frogger and Narc. But the reason I mention it here is that the game features a cameo by former Alaska Governor and conservative firebrand Sarah Palin (pictured left).

The story is also mildly amusing: when Jay-Z and Justin Bieber get into a limo accident, the promoter asks Das Racist to step in and save the day.. but first they have to find their Hype man Daz who has inexplicably disappeared. Retro hijinx ensue.

You can check out the game for yourselves at dasracist.net. Image from Game | Life.
