Colbert: Play "Tan Theft Auto," Get Vitamin D Power-up

Colbert Report Full EpisodesPolitical HumorMeryl Streep

Earlier this month GamePolitics reported on a study which suggested that excessive video game and T.V. time may be contributing to reduced vitamin D levels in children.

Funny man Stephen Colbert, however, may have the answer. In the clip at left, Colbert recommends using the "VaxBox 360" to play Tan Theft Auto, thus soaking in gobs of vitamin D-producing UV rays.

Okay, so it's funnier when Colbert says it...

If you want to skip ahead to the game-related bits, they begin at about 3:45 into the clip.

Sounds like a quick way to get skin cancer.

Having a sun lamp while you game really isn't a bad idea.

Re: Colbert: Play "Tan Theft Auto," Get Vitamin D Power-up

Again with the random button mashing. :/

Re: Colbert: Play "Tan Theft Auto," Get Vitamin D Power-up

Annoying isn't it? Just like doing it along with playing a game with sound effects from the 70s/early 80s/Atari days. Or the kid playing a Gameboy with no game in it as well. >_>

Goth_SkunkIt is not conducive to a welcoming, open-minded environment that this site is supposed to be.05/30/2015 - 2:33am
Goth_SkunkIt's highly annoying. It adds nothing of note to any topic and is of no benefit to anyone. And the fact that it has not been stopped up until now is giving me the impression that site administration condones it.05/30/2015 - 2:32am
Goth_SkunkIron Patriot goes out of their way to attack, mischaracterize, dehumanize, and otherwise derail any topic where an individual is even remotely considering siding with GamerGate.05/30/2015 - 2:31am
Goth_SkunkI believe there is sufficient evidence to accuse Iron Patriot of harassment. I would like something done about it.05/30/2015 - 2:20am
Andrew EisenFirst I hear of the Frag Dolls in many years and they're disbanding. http://fragdolls.com/frag-dolls-farewell-2/05/29/2015 - 7:59pm
WonderkarpI'd love a real Conker. the Project Spark thing I am looking at. If they provide atleast 25 hours of original conker crazyness that I dont have to build.....05/29/2015 - 7:55pm
Matthew WilsonI think he was talking about wanting a real one.05/29/2015 - 7:19pm
Andrew EisenKarp - A real Conker game or are you content with that Project Spark thing?05/29/2015 - 7:18pm
Matthew Wilson if they are smart, they hire Hideo Kojima, give him his own studio, and rebew the partnership with Guillermo del Toro.05/29/2015 - 7:04pm
MattsworknameReally hope silent hills gets made, it really deserves to be released, and konami is being stupid riht now so if MS wants to take it, more power to them.05/29/2015 - 6:32pm
Wonderkarp80% complete? Well. If there was ever a reason to make me buy a Xbone, that would be it. That and Conker05/29/2015 - 5:24pm
Matthew Wilsonif true, a very smart move.05/29/2015 - 5:24pm
Adam802Huge if true: http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/05/29/silent-hills-reportedly-an-xbox-one-exclusive?abthid=5568e08e738dff6a4f00002305/29/2015 - 5:19pm
WonderkarpRegion locking annoys me. I cant tell you how many Japanese games I want to to play but need to own another console and learn japanese to play them!05/29/2015 - 5:13pm
MattsworknameThis kinda thing is why I have a very negitive view on things like region locking and games not being released universially. it creates problems like this where the game gets reduced as a result .05/29/2015 - 4:41pm
Andrew EisenNeither will the 3DS. Wait, WHAT?! http://www.siliconera.com/2015/05/28/samurai-warriors-chronicles-3-does-not-include-nintendo-costumes-in-the-west/05/29/2015 - 4:33pm
Andrew EisenSamurai Warriors Chronicles 3 will not include the Nintendo-themed costumes when it hits the Vita in NA and EU next month.05/29/2015 - 4:32pm
Wonderkarpthe brilliance of the Wii U is they could offer 2 games in 1 package. Tablet/pro controller controls, and then a flipped game with WiiMote. Add a master quest too it too05/29/2015 - 4:18pm
Andrew EisenTwilight Princess would be my favorite if it didn't have a few notable design issues. But yeah, those few things aside, it absolutely trumps Ocarina in most every way.05/29/2015 - 4:11pm
WonderkarpTwilight Princess is my favorite Zelda. Its a legit sequal to Ocarina, enhancing everything Ocarina had, and I hope there's a HD Remaster with gamecube controls. Make it Nintendur!05/29/2015 - 4:08pm
