Seth Green and Matt Senreich will promote the July 21 Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II DVD release (and the continuation of their Adult Swim show’s fourth season — nine new eps starting July 26) with a nine-city roller rink tour. The parties, which kick off July 25 in San Diego at Comic-Con, will feature performances by Gym Class Heroes, as well as appearances by the creators (who will travel from city-to-city on a tour bus), the show’s writers (including Breckin Meyer), and famous fans. Also apparently, there will, in fact, be roller skating.
So, are you ready to return to the roller rink? My memories of the one I frequented growing up in Central Pennsylvania are mostly blocked. But I remember the joy of realizing that my shirt glowed and the fear that made me afraid to do whatever it is you have to do with your skate to stop (so I would just run into the wall). Okay, I need to stop before I remember that humiliation that happened by the Pac-Man machine. It’s close to surfacing… Abort! ABORT!
Your turn. What’s your favorite roller rink memory? Dates and details on the parties after the jump.
