Just to prove that the Japanese are not the only ones to spawn videos of the upmost craziness, one Joystiq reader sent us this nine-part showing of Monkey Island, a play by Hammond High School in Columbia, Maryland. The play is -- you guessed it -- based on the Monkey Island series.

All we can say is, "holy monkey-bladders!" We'll let you decide the rest.

View: Part One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, Nine.

[Thanks, Vilhelm]

[update 1: When I initially saw this video, I was a bit bothered by the main actor's portrayal of Guybrush Threepwood. Halfway through writing this post I realized I was being over-analytical: this is a high school play for chrissake's, not a broadway production. However, that reversal in judgement did not reflect in the title or the first paragraph, so I have updated to be more unbiased.

On top of that, it brought the attention of Ron Gilbert to explain the backstory and give his approval ... and I would be betraying my entire childhood if I went against Ron. I admit my wrongs, so sorry!]
