Video: Ah, 2004. It was a simpler time — a time of MySpace and Xanga, a time of American Idol and 7th Heaven. In games, 2004 was the year of World of Warcraft and Half-Life 2. George Bush defeated John Kerry. It was also the year Donald Trump appeared in an Xbox E3 ad spoofing The Apprentice and fired phony PlayStation representatives. Yes, good times.

In a skit only half as surreal as yesterday’s debate, Trump in 2004 assigns real Xbox representatives and fake PlayStation representatives to design Trump: The RPG. “The winning team wins a contract to produce an MMORPG based on my colourful life,” Trump says. “And I want to tell you, there’s nobody — nobody — who has a more colourful life than I do.”
