Guess I'll have to go pirate "My Ordinary Life" now...

It seems that the items were simply out of reach for this UFO. Laughing

Oh, so that's what a "UFO catcher" is, that we keep reading about.
(Always kept picturing a dreamcatcher, only with a UFO design.)

Over here, we just call it...."the Claw"--OOOOOOOOO!! Shocked

When I first read the title of the article, I thought:

"Another guy who doesn't know how these games are played... You're not supposed to grip the items directly (because it NEVER works), you're supposed to use the claws in unconventional ways to hook, push and nudge the figures into the winning area."

Then I watched the video.

Is that even legal to modify a UFO catcher to do such a thing?
