The Angry Video Game Nerd "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" (lost original Nerd rant ending of online video review; 2006)
James Rolfe is a famous internet critic who makes comedic video reviews of bad retro video games on his web series, The Angry Video Game Nerd, part of his Cinemassacre channel.
The fourth video in his series (at the time still known as The Angry Nintendo Nerd) was created in 2006; it was a review of the 1989 NES game, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, based on the 1988 film of the same name.
Originally, the episode was supposed to end with an improvised rant by the Nerd in which he would start shouting about terrible features in the game and mentioning what he would rather do than play the game.
According to a now-deleted tweet by Mike Matei (James's friend and assistant), the scene did not end up in the finished episode because, due to a tech error, the sound recording was switched off, leading to mute video footage they couldn't use.
There is no information provided about what was specifically mentioned in the rant. After LMW user Ben Roddison contacted James Rolfe, it is now confirmed that the audio was never recorded and the video footage was wiped from the tapes, meaning that the footage is permanently lost.
