        Must be cause I'm old but from the start I knew the guy making this video is the guy that bought the bid so the surprise just wasn't that great for me other than it's amazing that there's just some things you can only get from living long enough living long enough Moral of the story you kids are smart real smart but you all should really learn to respect your elders more than you do

      2. dailyn ragasa

      You made me want McDonald’s frys

    6. anon neymous

      "The owner is me" and YT straight quueu to advert. I got deja vu like im watching local cable TV. Bizarre experience. Like a step back in evolution. Also i really think because Coddy reach out to internal McD's, someone from McD japan know the value of their stash, and put it on ebay for you. Coddy is the reason u hv the copy.

      Ohh god

      1. Ivy Monique

      2. Nick Robinson

    15. Michael Speziale

      Why wouldn’t he have kept it on his person?!

    16. Karin Torres

      NEVER 👏 PACK 👏 VALUABLES 👏 IN 👏 CHECKED 👏 LUGGAGE 👏 If that was in fact his ONLY option, he definitely shouldn't have put it anywhere near the outer edge of the suitcase. I would've wrapped SO many clothes around that sucker & secured it to the center area of the suitcase.

    17. Cherub 1979

      Did you guys learnt nothing about the zeshuan sauce

    18. KKtrinaSaidSo

    27. David Jacob

      This story needs to go into the 2020 A.D. time capsule. CovID... Tanking world economy... World leaders resigning... McDonald's NintendoDS game.

    28. David Jacob

      The rarest game is not rare anymore

    41. CVS-11

      Former Japan McDonalds worker here. The icons (or badges) you seem to get at the end of each training, are the same pictures from stickers which trainee were given and stick on the nameplate as an certifiate. McD (especially in Japan) was so proud of sophisticated training and the cartridhge shows the vives they were running on at that time.

      1. Nick Robinson

        holy crap! that's fascinating, hahah. i wonder if i could find those stickers anywhere...

    42. FluffyVark

      This is by far the best video on the whole youtube man! Love it. Its such an adventure to even watch it! Geez man good job

    43. Eddie Rice

      $4k and this laborious adventure for the gaming community??! yal terminology in the video is WILD to say the least lol but I respect the voyage ✊🏿

    44. Ciara Conner

    55. Jonas Calandria

    56. Jacqui

      Jesus Christ, I'm playing that game

    57. IWatchVideos

      Holy Sh*t!!! That twist when he said that he was the current owner of the McDonald game was insane..... only to have it snatched, but that ending. You’re so entertaining to watch and I was on the edge throughout the entire video

    58. Dakota Holmes

      This was an all around good video good shit mane

    59. Rein The Bird Boy

      "the person who made that bid...." itóf it's him I'm gonna screech "it was me" *screech*

    66. BUHO SNB

      “That person.... IS ME!” *Shocked Pikachu Face*

    67. Rob Pash

      22:22 Mark's gestures while explaining what happened to the luggage is my favorite part. Epic video!

    68. The Bronx Boglehead

      You are one of the rare people (like Jon Bois) that can make anything interesting. Many people get big on IRvision for making content about things that people love. But every so often there is a channel that is popular for the quality of the content, independent of the subject matter. Unless there are some how close to a million die hard super monkey ball fans out there.

    69. Kimberly Cervantes

      It just kept getting and better

    70. Vasilis Konstandin

      I was happy that they found the game, then again I was sad because the guy it's not going to share with I thought about greedy old man, but you you are the I was so happy for a moment, then I was so 😭 because I realise you're not going to share with us. Thanks 👍.

      1. Nick Robinson

        keep watching..!

    71. This is Cutie Ringo Joy

    74. Gamovie Studios

      This video sent me through so many different emotions and I don't know how to react.

    75. Michael Perrella

      Holy Hell Man What A Rollercoaster Great Work

    76. Guillermo Fuentes

      Hey Nick, I remember years ago that in the gamefaqs forum, people who played Super Mario RPG for the SNES rented from blockbuster claimed to had access to an area that retail versions didn't. After many years, I've wondered whether this theory may be true or whether it's people who somehow collectively misremembered their experience playing the game. Might be worth taking a look into. Thanks!

    77. Sonic the Shadow

      This guy is like a legend at finding lost media

      1. Ranmaru


    78. Astrid C

      Wow I was so invested, this is beautiful

    79. Jeanette Gomez

      This sounds like a anime

    80. Brandon Curbow

      "McDonalds" the movie

    81. Marcos Eduardo

      bro, not to undermine you or anything, but.... cody actually worked towards geting into the game. you literally just bought it. I'm glad you didn't got to it first, because it would have been devastating TO CODY.

    82. Mellainia

      I really like the Video and the effort you put into it. Greetings from germany 😊.

    83. Galina C

      How did it get so rare? Why are there so few copies? I just don't understand

    84. DameAndThatGame

      Incredible video, story and mission, the video had me on the edge of my seat the whole time.... Ending was sooooooo cringe tho lol ;)

    85. Accorgion III

      Man you’re big on foreplay

    86. Big Joe

      imagine the live chat when he said it was him that had the game lmao

      1. Big Joe

        @Nick Robinson oh really? how?

      2. Nick Robinson

        you can actually watch the live chat replay!

    87. golden flame 26

      Everybody this game has been saved after so many years!!!!!!

    88. Moo and Poo

      Ayo Durham in da houseeee

    89. EliasVarious

      That game looks lowkey fun though

    90. Extomics

      I am pretty sure cody was watching this and when he heard nick owned it he was pissed.

    91. Andrew Perez

      But can sell the second one?

    92. andrew goods

      I can’t believe I watched this entire video! 😳

    93. ZAC SMASH!

      I got a copy

    94. Michael Ross

      I live near you. Willing to part with the extra DS? Lol

    95. xschx1

      So I would think the McDonalds DS is just as rare as the cartridge, I can't see them buying 2-3 DS but only 1 cartridge, they would be 1:1 purchased together. Depends on how many DS broke and were tossed, or if they gave the DS away and threw cartridges out thinking they were worthless after the training campaign ran it's course. Really neat though, good video

      1. Nick Robinson

        hahah, i know the exact plush you're talking about! i dug mine up recently, too, but mine is pretty damaged. (ps: if you were a Monkey Ball fan, i think you'd appreciate this video: )

      2. xschx1

        @Nick Robinson also glad I watched this because you mentioned monkey ball collectibles and made me remember buying some monkey ball promo plush from a yard sale like 15 years ago and still have it sitting in a box somewhere, apparently it's worth a lot! Also tough call on dumping the game rom...that is a hard choice considering what you paid for yours and considering there are people who may make physical fakes of it to sell, but a selfless act for the gaming community.

      3. Nick Robinson

        (and thanks for the kind words! i’m glad you enjoyed the video)

      4. Nick Robinson

        I think the reason that might not be true is because employees were probably more likely to hold onto (and sell!) the consoles than the cartridges - in part because the cartridge contain proprietary info owned by their employer, and they might be worried about getting in trouble, it being traced back to them, etc.

    96. Money Daniel


    97. Tara Ivanoff

      When I saw him pack the game in his suitcase, I was like "No, this is a bad idea. In your pocket, please".

    98. Kyle and Freya dinner

      Why is this video sequenced perfectly

    99. boxofcloud69

      lmao that is not how that is pronounced 39:48

    100. Adam Applebaum

      Wow he won it on July 9th? That's my birthday. Yay!
