“Girls Suck at Video Games”: The Video Game: The Video

French animator Stéphanie Mercier has released a humorous animation titled “Girls Suck at Video Games.” Don’t be fooled by the title: It’s a clever little ditty about how life can be tough for a woman who has to juggle a career and a baby-in-stomach — presented in a SNES-like video game format. It brings me back to the days of Super Mario World and other side-scrollers I played as a kid, like The Magical Quest Starring Mickey Mouse (just me?).

What is it with the French, their preoccupation with sex/gender, and clever old-school-video-game-esque animations (warning: link NSFW)? Video after the jump.

You can check out more of Mercier’s work at her blog, but only if you read French (or run it through Google Translate)!
