"It all started SO simply; I had just finished my usual morning routine of Nude Funkercise, fired up the Barkerlounger, grabbed a quick bite to eat and prepared to watch some serious tube. Little did I know, my snack was sent... byRez."
After Gex's father is killed in explosion at NASA, he bottles up his emotions and becomes obsessed with TV. Later, when his rich uncle died, he inherited a large amount of money which he used to buy the world's largest TV. One day, while watching TV, he ate a passing fly - this, however, was a transmitter sent by Rez who then pulled Gex into the Media Dimension to use him as a new mascot and take over the world. Gex, however, managed to fight his way out and collects the remotes that control the world and manages to defeat Rez.
