Toronto punk quartet PUP have made a music video featuring retro video games, but now someone has put them in a video game. The game is called Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator and it’s exactly what the name says.
In Dream Daddy, you play as a dad and your goal is to meet and date other hot dads. What a beautiful concept, very fitting for PUP.
The band has a cameo in a minigame, where “one of your dates with Mat (Cool Dad) takes place at a concert venue (called the Sound Garden—sorry there’s a lot of Dad puns in this game) where PUP is headlining,” the video game’s co-creator told Pitchfork. “PUP’s ‘DVP’ plays during a minigame where you lost your date in the crowd after having to leave your spot to go to the bathroom.”
