Adjustable Golden Shower Head

Specialty accessory for watersports enthusiasts.  Strap that fellow on over the old faucet, then turn the head (hey, gently now) to set it to e.g. “mist”, “jet”, “massage”, “flower pot”…

Actual Horses, the restaurant

A family-friendly American dining restaurant franchise, with a gimmick: the restaurant contains actual horses.

Have a hamburger and a milkshake and also there’s an actual horse there!

Want an onion popper appetizer?  No problem; also, an actual horse is standing nearby!

It’s your birthday?  They’ll bring you out a cupcake with a candle in it, and also a waiter will put peanut butter on an actual horse’s gums so that it tries to lick it off and looks like its talking, and then someone will stand behind the horse and sing happy birthday and it’ll be like the horse is singing happy birthday to you for at least as long as the peanut butter lasts.

Dance Dance Resident Evil

Dance-pad adaptation of Capcom zombie franchise. 

Step your way through the directional-arrow-tiled halls of spooky Spencer Mansion!  Do a quick left-right-up-down eighth-note pattern to pick up the green herb!  Nail five double hops in a row to dodge Wesker’s attack in the Umbrella Corporation’s top secret dance labs! 

Play as any of several Resident Evil protagonists.  Chris Redfield can outskank any bro on the block; Ada Wong gets a tango bonus in her red dress; Jill Valentine is the master of pop-and-locking.  A special “zombie dog” bonus mode encourages you to play on all fours, and also to leap through windows constantly.

DDRE is a lot like Typing of the Dead except with rhythm-game dancing instead of survival horror console-style zombiebothering rather than typing instead of arcade-style lightgun zombie railshooting, and also Resident Evil rather than House of the Dead.  So basically as different from Typing of the Dead as a game could be while still being appallingly similar in both source material genre and subversive edutainment intent.
