California Extreme sounds like a fitting title for my internship, doesn’t it? Instead, it is the name of an arcade and pinball show. What’s that, you ask? Watch the video!

I felt like a total geek for a day, and so did the thousands of people around me. Everybody was trying old and new games. Experts were around to teach how something works. This includes two pinball world champions, who took their time to explain what a live catch is and how to do a slap save. I totally enjoyed the time.

Video credits: Among the stars are Scott and Alex (two fellow Google interns seen playing Panik Park), the energy thieves (we won!), Raymond Davidson, and two other pinball world champions. The music is the Cucco Medley, played by Kirby’s Dream Band.
