Hank Chien, the plastic surgeon who is the two-time (and current) world high score champion in Donkey Kong, is the subject of a documentary getting its second screening tomorrow.

In “Doctor Kong”, Chien, who took the high score in Donkey Kong about a year ago, then won it back from “The King of Kong” villain Billy Mitchell in January, is followed around for the year after his record-setting feat. He says when he contacted Twin Galaxies to certify his first record and told them he was a plastic surgeon, the referee asked him “Shouldn’t you be out getting laid?” A fair question. Chien implies he’s seeking fame, and therefore starfuckers, through his Donkey Kong play. But he may be joking, who knows.

“Doctor Kong” is being screened tonight at Richie Knucklez in Flemington, New Jersey. Its trailer is above.
