$10,001 in quarters is a whole lotta Donkey Kong

Those crazy, brilliant bastards at Stride have actually ponied up the promised $10,001 in quarters, which along with a year’s supply of chewing gum will be rewarded to King of Kong‘s Steve Wiebe should he finally best Billy Mitchell’s Donkey Kong world record, 1,050,200 points during a single game, live at E3 later this week.

“The bank teller I ordered them from told me that the quarters were so heavy that one of their pull carts collapsed from the sheer weight of 40,000 quarters sitting on top of it,” wrote the poor intern charged with making the withdrawal, and a ton of new enemies behind the teller’s counter.
