This promotional video for Double Fine's Once Upon a Monster teaches children several important lessons. For instance, look how well cookies fit inside the Xbox 360 DVD drive. Bet they hadn't thought of that.

Not only is the Xbox 360 a handy place to store snacks, it also acts as a snack itself, it's circuit board innards magically transforming into coiled wires that had never seen the inside of a real console. It bears noting that when your children do bite down on the Xbox 360, their teeth marks will be exaggerated in cartoon fashion, even if they are a puppet that doesn't technically have teeth.


I'm joking, of course. If your child is a puppet with no teeth, seek medical attention immediately.
