New version of Konami's dance machine fails to strike a chord among Muslims

Dubai, UAE, January 30, 2007 (UEP) -- Industry pundits recently observed that Japanese video game maker Konami has not found the "young suicidal Islamists who love to boogie" demographic it was depending upon for its new "Dance, Dance Jihad" machine.


One of the coin-operated Dance, Dance Jihad machines, not being used.

Reminds me of the lyrics to Marillion's "Berlin"
"They were dancing in the spotlights
to the sound of clapping hands..."


Dr. Mabuse - "When the going gets tough, the tough get Duct-tape..."

Or perhaps they did get the demographic, but repeat business was a little slow.
