This video of American Laser Games visiting the Today Show (circa 1990) to show off its infamous Mad Dog McCree live-action shooting game is the latest gem out of Grooveraider's video vault. It's worth watching just for the first few seconds when Joe Garagiola talks about an entire industry launched by the classic "Poing".

The other draw is watching Katie Couric, now a news anchor on CBS Evening News, hunch her shoulders, hold the plastic pistol an inch away from face, close one eye while aiming, and throw a jubilant arm up after successfully hits a bottle during target practice. Even with her reloading problems, it looks like she's a lot better playing Mad Dog McCree than I ever was.
