The Angry Video Game Nerd "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" (lost original Nerd rant ending of online video review; 2006)
James Rolfe is a famous internet critic who makes comedic video reviews of bad retro video games on his web series, The Angry Video Game Nerd.
The fourth video in his series (at the time known as The Angry Nintendo Nerd) was created in 2006; it was a review of the 1989 NES game, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, based on the 1988 film of the same name.
Originally, the episode was supposed to end with a Nerd's rant in which he would start shouting about terrible features in the game and mentioning what he would rather do than play the game.
According to a tweet by Mike Matei (James's friend and assistant), the scene did not end up in the finished episode due to a tech error.
There is no information provided about what was specifically mentioned in the rant. After LMW user Ben Roddison contacted James Rolfe, it is now confirmed that the audio was never recorded and the video footage was wiped from the tapes, meaning that the footage is permanently lost.
