I'm scared for life because of that Super Adult material. I'm going to be dreaming about Luigi dancing next to seniors for the rest of my life.

Too bad I didn't participate. Anyways, my family would have tossed the tickets AND the games (my mom has a strict "no-video games" policy that she wants to enforce, but can't).
