Embarrassing Video Alert: Cyril Lachel on GamePro TV in 1990

by: Cyril -
Once upon a time, I was part of an elite force called Team GamePro. Instead of going on covert missions, I sat on my fat butt and read issues of GamePro. Not only did I get my name in the magazine (in teeny tiny letters), but I also got some cool swag.  Best of all, I got to be on one of the earliest episodes of GamePro TV.

Just in case you aren't familiar with J.D. Roth's exciting catalog of shows, GamePro TV was a syndicated program that ran from 1990 to 1991.  They reviewed games, answered user questions, gave out hints, previewed upcoming titles and more.  At the end of every show there was a user-submitted pro tip.  That's where I come in.  The video shows me at age 12 giving out pointers on how to beat the end boss of Ghouls 'N Ghosts.  As far as 22 year old videos go, this one is pretty embarrassing.  But I'm not above people seeing me make a fool out of myself as a kid.
