$20 in League vs. $20 at the Dollar Store

Is there any way to match the majesty of Omega Squad Teemo in the real world?

Alright, full disclosure: This is a bit of a stupid idea.

A few weeks ago I was thinking about the nature of in-game purchases, whether they are characters, gun camos or silly hats. I began to wonder whether I could generate the equivalent value of an in-game purchase in the midst of a visit to our local Dollar Store.

In this case, I purchased $20 worth of in-game content in League of Legends. Could I recreate something of equal (or greater) value with regular household items and cheap party favors? That’s what I set out to discover.

Did I succeed? Did I fail? I’ll let you be the judge. But yeah, I succeeded.

If you liked this dumb video, perhaps you’d like to peruse our YouTube channel, where you can find all sorts of dumb things, like playing GTA 5 blindfolded and trying to get Nintendo to retweet a picture of Toad in a diaper.
