Crossfire Game Brought Back From '90s With Steel Panther (VIDEO)

Nostalgia for the 1990s has been appearing in droves, from MTV's reboot of "Beavis and Butt-Head" to Nickelodeon's '90s Nick bloc of programming to Newt Gingrich being on our TVs again. But perhaps none are inspired as this remake of the video for Crossfire, the Milton-Bradley board game that pitted opponents' tiny silver balls against each other.

But anyone watching kids' TV circa 1993 can still recall the iconic commercial repeated ad neaseum, warning viewers that they would, indeed, be "caught up in the... CROSS-FIYAAHHH."

Naturally, glam rock band Steel Panther covered the jingle as a metal anthem in this new video released by Freddie Wong. In the video, a life-sized Crossfire appears as if out of nowhere and targets an unlikely lad (Wong) as the band howls the Crossfire theme behind him. Unfortunately, gigantic metallic balls hurling through the air may not be as safe as the board game in your cousin's basement.
