Roll a D6

As a tabletop gamer who carries dice in her bag, I’m highly amused by this d&d roleplaying parody of the Far East Movement’s “Like a G6” :

I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for the Far East Movement even un-parodied, mostly because of Rocketeer, but even She Owns the Night sounds to me like a “geek girl loves to dance” kinda anthem:

The only question is,
Watchu know about these stereotypes?
FM, come on.

So innocent you can tell by the clothes,
College girl with a 4.0,
Good girl by day,
Damn, who would have known?

    Hee. This has been floating around all day and I finally got a chance to see it.

    Now that’s gonna be in my head all night.

    “She owns the night” I imagine as referencing those (possibly geek) students of Asian background who seem to cause so much resentment in some white students.

      Yeah, I think that’s the intent too. As I’m demi-asian *and* a geek woman *and* an academic *and* love to dance, it resonates especially with me, but I figured I’d highlight the geek identification since that’ll resonate with more people here than the others. :)

      Although I said d&d, I don’t think the video ever specifies a system. Nothing to say that they aren’t running a custom game — I’ve certainly done a number of those myself!

      4th Ed. D&D allows any class to use whatever they want to as long as they take the appropriate feats, similarly to 3.5. That being said, “Roll a d6” certainly goes much better with a system like Shadowrun over a d20 based system :D
