If you grew up playing sports video games, like I did, you'll remember the cheat codes that would give the players incredible advantages. One cheat code, prominent in Konami video games made for the Nintendo Entertainment System, was so well known (especially for the 1987 hit 2D shooter game, "Contra"), that there have been multiple references to it in pop culture...and now the Twittersphere.
Today's retweet is from comedian Jason Hunter (@jhuntercomedy):
"Danny Green just hit A B B B A A Up Down Down Left Right. Opened up a whole new level. #NBAFinals"
|Actually, the code was, "up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Start" but you get his point.|
