Caine’s Arcade on KTLA

Photo Comedian visited the world’s only cardboard arcade Sunday morning. 9-year-old Caine Monroy built an elaborate cardboard arcade inside his dad’s used auto parts store and the video went viral a few weeks ago.

So far it has raised almost $200,000 for Caine’s Arcade Foundation, which will help find, foster, and fund creativity and entrepreneurship in young kids. 

I purchased the Fun Pass ($2 for 500 arcade plays, the best deal in LA). I played the crane machine and won a musical cow that sounds like a dying electric shaver. It is kind of ingenious how he uses simple tools like string, hooks, and cardboard to make arcade games.

KTLA interviewed Caine live and I saw my feet in the right corner of the screen at 1:13.

Soon after I left, Jack Black and his kids dropped by and dominated the crane machine game. I should have stayed longer. Well, I still have 498 turns left on my Fun Pass, so maybe I’ll see a celebrity next time.
