“Trapped in the Comments” is a parody song by game designer Teddy Diefenbach that spoofs the Trapped in the Closet series of songs by R. Kelly. Diefenbach’s parody specifically focuses on reading Internet comments about his new game, Kyoto Wild.
A note from Teddy: This is not a damnation of internet commenters (and not singling out Kotaku in particular.) Much of the comments I’ve read from fans have been invaluably encouraging. BUT, this video is a fictional account of my true emotional arc reading comments both good and bad. Love, Teddy
The original music video for the first chapter of R. Kelly’s Trapped in the Closet:

RocketNews24 has posted a series of photos and video of an outbreak of Pikachus from the video game franchise Pokémon during an event called Pikachu Tairyou Hassei Chu in Yokohama, Japan. The event went on from August 9th through August 17th, with parades of the giant critters happening regularly throughout the day.
The Tairyou Hassei Chu event is going on in Minato Mirai, Yokohama’s fashionable harbor area that’s filled with parks, entertainment complexes, high-rise condominiums, and some beautiful views where the sea, sky, and city converge. So the first order of business was a train ride to Minato Mirai Station, which is about 30 minutes south of downtown Tokyo. After getting off the train, we spotted our first Pikachu before we were even out of the gates[.]
