Ever hear of Ivonne Loyola?
I don’t know her, but The Wife and I LOVE her short film LETS GO ARCADE
…Wha? Never heard of it? I guess I’m not surprised…we found it at I Luv Video about 7 years ago…really awesome store…seriously…

Anyway, there it sat, one lonely vhs tape…I think it was only a 50 cent rental…it had a cutesy hand drawn box cover of Pac Man and maybe a ghost or two and the title, “LETS GO ARCADE.”
All we knew about it was that it was a musical set in a 1980s arcade..so that’s all you get and you get to keep your 50 cents cause it’s on YouTube:
The audio’s not the best, but that kind of adds to it’s vhs charm, if you ask me….
It still makes me smile…I’d love to get a copy of it on dvd…maybe I’ll drop this mysterious Ivonne Loyola a line and see if she has any to sell…oh, I even made this bumper sticker for my truck seven years ago…’cause I’m gay like that:
