Here's the down-low you didn't ask for then-Saints Row is a series of three, going on four, video games based on the same concept as the GTA franchise, but while GTA has gotten calmer recently, Saints Row has only gotten more crazy. The Saints are a street gang ostensibly formed to end gang violence by wiping out all other gangs in town, their colors are purple with optional bling, and their symbol is a fleur-de-lis. Johnny Gat is one of the founding members of the gang, the kind of guy who blows up recording studios with cars full of C4 and buries his enemies alive. The Player Character of the games is possibly even more crazy, bold, destructive and sociopathic than Johnny. Then again, maybe the Boss just has meta-awareness when s/he says that running over pedestrians in a sandbox game is therapudic. The player character and Gat are both pretty good at effortlessly slaughtering waves of whatever mooks come their way, tanking shotgun rounds, and generally being hard bastards to kill.
"Murder Time, Fun Time!" is the slogan of an in-universe Japanese game-show that the Boss stars on in the third installment of the series. It's called 'Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax' and it consists mostly of running an obstacle course full of people in mascot outfits armed with either guns or giant purple floppy dildos. There are also super-deadly traps.
