A small Internet game to help boost the holiday spirit and strengthen your Jewish identity.
On July 29, 2006 actor and director Mel Gibson was arrested in Los Angeles after been caught exceeding the speed limit. Police officers identified high levels of alcohol in his blood. The incident provoked many reactions as a result of anti-Semitic remarks made by Gibson to the arresting officers. According to witnesses, Gibson said â€œThe Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.â€ Gibson apologized a day later: â€œI acted like a person completely out of control when I was arrested, and said things that I do not believe to be true and which are despicableâ€. Since his arrest, Gibson was criticized broadly and became a subject for mockery by comedians.
The â€œSo You Think You Can Drive, Melâ€ Internet game raised up a notch the ridicule level. The object of the game is driving Gibson from a restaurant to his home. On the way home you collect tequila bottles while trying to avoid flying Stars of David and police troopers. The more bottles you collect, the drunker Mel gets, and it’s harder to control his car. It’s a funny, stupid but rather addictive game. Letâ€™s get out the little aggressive devil that is hidden in all of us.
