Is your workday lacking a little sumpin' sumpin'? Vice has a cure for your humpday blues.
The media company, known best for its free glossy magazine, irreverent worldview and caustically candid fashion "do's and don'ts" has thrown its back into a lo-fi online game featuring the music of transgender New Orleans bounce artist Big Freedia.
Developed by the digital marketing and promotions agency Eyes & Ears using StepMania Micro, the simple but addictive (and possibly NSFW depending on your particular workplace) game challenges players to use their fingers to score points in a butt-bouncing bout against a computer opponent. If players manage to out-battle the opposing booty -- easily accomplished with minimal attention and prodigious direction-key mashing -- they are rewarded with a free download of Big Freedia's single, "Feelin' Myself."
Bass-heavy beats and butt-shaking grooves are hallmarks of Big Freedia's live performances. Big Freedia's underground dance hits include "Gin in My System" and "Azz Everywhere!" Her latest album, 2010's Big Freedia Hitz Vol. 1, was nominated for a 2011 GLAAD Media Award.
