It took me a second to realize what this video was, and then I did not stop laughing. The only time I laughed harder was when I watched it on Desert Bus.
Also: Yay! I love the musical Desert Bus recap/aftermath videos.

I can't stop listening to this. When will it be released as a downloadable .mp3?

It took me a few watch-throughs to spot King Kool, but he's there in the Kroze nest when Morgan's QWOP walking. It's brief and he's almost completely obscured, but he's there.

This video had me lolling so hard. Just all over the place. Man, there was lol everywhere.

Also; Did you physically colour Matt's hair red, or is it all in post? Because it doesn't look like a wig.

I saw the title and was like "What does this have to do with DB? LRR always post a DB vid after it ends." Then . . . the song happened. I'm really happy that all the memes included were ones I was awake for. Ian and 64K played really well off each other with the "Wait, what?" parts.

I missed this during the actual Desert Bus, but it was hilarious nonetheless! Though now I wonder if Graham's cut-off brony confession is true or not.
I fight for TRUTH! JUSTICE! And DONUTS!

...not really the first two.

I actually ripped the audio out of the vid, and have been listening to it for the past 1/2 hour.

Also, Graham admits he's a brony!

This is the Tale...

I would actually rather have the lyrics, cause there's a few words I can't quite make out.

Wow, that was awesome! Well dong indeed! A perfect wrap-up for an amazing Desert Bus!

For a point I just going to say this, if someelse said it before sorry, but I will qualify this as a 64k video, even though it is a parody.

Well, I mean... I could do that, but I'd rather give money to LRR for it.

I have mixed feelings about this one. The basic comedic game was sound: LRR setting up expectations on the verses and Ian going in a totally different direction on the chorus. And the references were funny.

On the other hand, making an episode filled with inside jokes and fanservice usually means you've jumped the shark. And the shark is balancing random objects on its head. While playing the part of Spock in a dramatic performance of erotic Star Trek fan fiction. With a deck of Magic cards playing the role of Kirk. And your cat hates that. And there's toast involved somehow.

Man, it's weird that LRR is still functional then, given they've jumped the shark with every single season-finale episode, and I think a few of the previous post-Desert-Bus videos, too. It's amazing there are still any sharks left to jump.

A single fanservice video does not a shark-jumping moment make. Hell, a regular 2 or 3 fanservice videos at specified points each year does not a shark-jumping moment make. A shark-jumping moment is a long trend of low-quality stuff, with a clearly-recognised start point... and a single low-quality episode followed by a return to a high-quality status quo isn't that. And this isn't even that, unless you consider "fanservice" to be "low-quality". But even if you do, the difference is in whether the upcoming videos are more injoke drudgery, or if, like every previous time LRR has done a fanservice video, it's returned to the norm. And unless you have some sort of future time machine, and have seen the upcoming videos, you can't judge which in the moment - shark-jumping is only something that can be judged in retrospect. Like, for instance, pointing out that the pile of injokes and fanservice that was the Season 4 finale wasn't followed by continued terribleness, and thus wasn't a shark-jumping moment.
While no one overhear you quickly tell me not cow cow.
but how about watch phone?

That's the worst part. After they jump the shark and crash the motorcycle in a big, horrible explosion, and the episode ends with Action 9 News reporting the deaths of the entire crew, the next season opens with Paul realizing it was all just a dream before going back to bed for more sleep.

Slack, in our defense, it's the post-DB video and that's just how they tend to roll.
After DB2 we did the Buggles parody... turns out parodies are easier because they require less brain meat.

That... was... BUSSING AWESOME!! Both visual and sound were at the top of their game and it was fun to do a walk down memory lane.

Was it the great lighting of the moonbase or did you guys get a new camera, because the shots looked incredibly clean in this one.

FYI, since I ripped the audio 6 hours ago, I've listened to it 77 times, if iTunes is to be believed.

No problem. Seeing as how my rant about the inside jokes was itself full of inside jokes, there's a slight chance I might be okay with parody. :P

Aaaahhhh, after the wonderment that was Desert Bus 5, this is an excellent video.
You can't beat a good song to hold the memory of all that bus-ing madness strong.
Nice to see guy back on rap-tastic form, and Ian was just damn brilliant.
A TRUE well dong to you all, people. :D

And one for the road....., AFRICAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

This is the level of meta-humour I like from LRR; a parody of a parody.
