Arcade Sushi Asks: If You Could Activate God Mode in Real Life, What’s the First Thing You’d Do?
Arcade Sushi Asks is our newest feature, where we ask writers, editors, celebrity personalities, directors, rock stars and anyone else we can buy off to answer important video game questions. Each Arcade Sushi Asks feature will have answers from new and interesting people.
For this edition of Arcade Sushi Asks, we prodded some of today’s hottest bands. We imagine they feel like gods up on stage, but what about when they’re not performing? What would they do with such a powerful gift? The answers may surprise you.
So what did we ask these bad ass rock stars? Just this simple question:
“If You Could Activate God Mode in Real Life, What’s the First Thing You’d Do?”
James Michael: "If I could activate God Mode in real life I would impose sneezing fits on my enemies and gain my strength by eating Krispy Kreme donuts."
Escape the Fate
Robert Ortiz: "I'd eat so much f***ing food it's ridiculous."
Max Green: "I'd steal a 2014 corvette and set a brick wall on fire and drive straight through that bitch like a goddamn champion!!! And then I'd catch a bullet with my teeth."
Human Furnace: "I dunno. I guess the only thing you could do with an ability like that is go into burning buildings and saves lives, s*** like that. Definitely not go to jail for a life sentence."
Nate Bergman: "I'd start trying to get really good at sudoku and stocking up on copies of Marley's "Legend". Eternity seems like a long and boring time."
The Devil Wears Prada
Daniel Williams: "This might be an odd answer, but I'd use it to go to dangerous areas of the world to understand them better. I think that a lot of people would use it to go rob a bank, or go on some sort of rampage or killing spree; I would prefer the protection for peace. I'd visit Somalia, to better understand piracy. The Middle East to understand religious extremism. North Korea and China to understand how their governments have complete control of their people. I want to fully understand how the world works and what better way is there than to fearlessly exist in their way of life."
Paolo Colavolpe: "This is kind of harsh to say during the holidays, but we think if we we're on God Mode the first thing we would do, before healing all the sexual transmitted diseases in the world, would be flying to every church in Italy and destroying those f***ing noisy bells with our iron fist and then using lasers rays from our eyes to melt that useless metal into cute teaspoons, sexy handcuffs and hi-end guitar strings to be given away as gifts during concerts.
We are not really a religious band, but we respect freedom of cult and we demand respect back. Everybody is cool with lowering the volume and closing bars and venues late at night in respect of others, we don't understand why these people have always had the right to wake you up with these stupid out-of-tune bells that sounds like s*** at 120 db every f***ing Sunday morning.
Their everlong duration, outrageous volume, inaccuracy of pitch and rhythmic incongruency is a deliberate offence to music and a hammer strike on our balls. Can't these people just pray in silence so that we can be friends?"
Alex Heiberger: "If I could activate God Mode in real life I would walk right into the White House, sustaining life through all the bullets I'm sure I would be taking. I would walk into the presidents office and just kick it with Obama. Maybe drink a couple beers, talk music, talk women, and then try flying Air Force One under the influence. If the plane started to go down I would just jump out head first. That would be a good night!"
Patrick Somoulay: "Jump off mountains without a parachute, or go sky diving without a parachute, and hijacking a space shuttle go to space and float away to different planets/galaxies."
Matt DiRito: "Pretty sure I would join a special forces team and put myself out in the front lines kickin down doors of the enemy."
Jeremy Wagner: "Seeing as God Mode makes me an immortal/indestructible Superman, the first thing I'd do is personally deliver death to all terrorists and hate groups worldwide...and bring peace and goodwill to the world via my extraordinary gift of God mode."
Ezra Haynes: "First and foremost would I use it for good or evil? Fight against an apocalypse or be the apocalypse? With evil, you're looking at unlimited money, girls and everything else you see in rap videos. With good, you're left with responsibility, praise and a clear conscience. Realistically, I'd probably be right up in the middle like Hancock. For instance, being a mess, lazy, for the most part selfish and really just doing anything when I feel like it. I wouldn't be able to choose one extreme or the other. I don't like to hurt people and I'm not really looking to be the next Bono. Either way you look at it God mode is a cheat, and cheating is fun."
