I Need to Grow Up — PUP – DVP Goes Retro

Pup tersely describes itself as a “four piece rock band from Toronto.”  Apparently, Pup also has at least one member who is an encyclopedic master of Super Nintendo and other 80s and 90s gaming systems.  He displays his wasted youth in Pup’s music video ‘DVP,’ a tribute to road sodas and the Don Valley Parkway.

 

While lead vocalist, Stefan, laments his life of binge-drinking beer and playing Mario Andretti on the DVP, while failing to hit it with his friend’s sister, let’s play eye-spy with the retro games depicted:
