Fake Trailer for Oregon Trial: The Movie

by Corey

Remember back in Elementary school when you’d sit down in front of a Macintosh computer and play the 8-bit game Oregon Trail? I sure as hell do, seeing how fast it became one of my favorite video games of all time. Like many, many old video games they’ve found a new nostalgic popularity amongst internet users within the past few years; College Humor’s Minesweeper is probably the most well known and the most popular parody video out. Now Oregon Trail gets the parody movie trailer treatment. See it after the break.




Named after the game itself, the film tells the all too familiar story of the Oregon Trail; how it begins in Independence, Missouri and how you gather all of your supplies and head out onto the trail. I personally think it’s a well crafted and hilarious trailer, with the mock people names on tombstones saying “Here Lies Poop Face”, an all too clever nod at the genius “give your characters names!” settings.


The video is created by Half Day Today!, a Los Angeles based new media production group. You can actually play the original Oregon Trail here or download a version for the iPhone.
