(Note: The Gobble Games are a grisly, violent affair and may contain some salty language. As such, it could be considered NSFW.)
Every November since 1989, the President of the United States is presented with a live turkey shortly before Thanksgiving. Rather than dooming it to a delicious, oven-roasted fate, the President grants our fine feathered friend a “presidential pardon”, preventing it from waddling off this mortal coil. But how is that turkey chosen? The answer is quite simple — they hold an all-turkey version of The Hunger Games. So, before you fill your bellies with all manner of stuffings, pies, and slow-simmered gravies, fill your eyeballs with the latest episode of Nerdist Presents: The Gobble Games, a The Hunger Games Thanksgiving parody (featuring a ‘cameo’ by President Obama!). The best way to survive in The Gobble Games?
Directed by Clinton Jones and starring Shelby Fero, Jessica Chobot, John Milhiser, Kyle Clark, Matt McCarthy, Kyle Hill, Malik Forte, Ben Mekler, Jason Nguyen, Charles Ingram, John Ungaro, and Dan Casey (hey, that’s me!), “The Gobble Games” takes everything you love about flightless birds and visceral hand-to-hand combat into one delightful, tryptophan-filled package. So, go ahead and pour some cranberry sauce out on the curb for your fallen homies because we’re about to unleash a cornucopia of carnage on the holiday season.
