Video game power-ups in real life

After spending several hours emerged in a video game, the real world can seem pretty boring without all of those cool weapons and power-ups. Every now and then I stop to wonder what the world would be like if we had some of those items. Apparently I'm not the only one.

The guys over at Cracked held a contest to see who could come up with the best Photoshop job that placed a video game power-up into a real-world situation.

The one below was the winner of the contest, while the other two were only runner-ups. You can see all 30 runner-up pics if you head over here.
