Here’s a tip. If you’re dealing with some kind of vintage thing and it has a signature, make sure it’s not the signature of someone important before you go and clean it away. This lesson was learned the hard way by Johnnyboy who wrote up a tutorial on how to take apart and clean a vintage handheld Donkey Kong game. This included getting rid of the “funny looking signature” that just happened to be that of Shigeru Miyamoto. He’d be the legendary Nintendo game designer. Oops.
Of course, he could have just been trolling the internet and this whole thing is just a joke. However, he did respond in the tutorial comments that it couldn’t be Miyamoto’s actual signature because he bought it for only $20 on eBay. Either way, check out the results after the break.
