This song is for anyone who has made a beeline for the video game section of their local retailer and cursed loudly at empty shelves.

Musical comedy group Hot Chocolate Party apply their lyrical mastery to the Amiibo phenomenon, singing the praises of immobile plastic married to computer chips, at least until they try to go buy one for themselves.


Of course in real life the shelves aren't empty—they just only have the ones you already have/don't want. As far as I'm concerned, that covers all of them. Charmed by the initial wave, I soon realized that A) I don't play Smash Bros. enough to care about AI fighters and B) in most other games they are just glorified DLC unlock codes. Bleh.
