Jason Torchinsky, a man who loves Atari but can't stand small controllers made a frickin' huge classic Atari controller. As you can see it's quite large. Unfortunately there were no shots of Olivia Munn playing with it. Which is unfortunate, because that would have made it a lot better. It still looks fun though. Except I'm a little worried that in the video Jason mentions "It's meant to be climbed on, it's meant to be played with, just like the real thing." And the interviewer agrees. Now let me be the first to say that I did climb on a real Atari controller once in my youth, and I can honestly say that's not what it was meant for. Unless having a doctor remove a plastic gaming peripheral from your ass was Atari's intention.
