Man attempts to become “real-life Frogger,” loses

Pin it

Many of us remember Frogger, the arcade classic that once enchanted many a gamer. Some of us may know the game best from that one Seinfeld episode, in which George Costanza becomes a real-life frogger of sorts, navigating the actual game across a busy street. But one of us actually did reenact the life of a frogger — and, sadly, lost.

A 23-year-old South Carolinian reportedly "yelled 'go' and darted onto oncoming traffic, before being struck by a 2010 Lexus SUV." He survived, however, and to honor his efforts, we've posted a clip from the aforementioned Seinfeld episode.
