On the one hand, I find parodies of already comedic songs rather tiresome.
On the other hand: 64k! And Desert Bus! :D

Guess I'll just have to be a hypocrite. :wink:

You know, this was my first Desert Bus and this was a brilliant finish to it. Absolutely loved it!

Post corrections to the lyrics and I'll fix them :)

The Tale of Matt Wiggins
Ian Horner and 64K

G*Star

Yeah
L R R
Ian Horner
Together on the moon
It’s a Desert Bus tune

(The bus starts now)

The bus starts now baby roll with us
Yeah, we’re turning on the feed and we rollin up
Blowin up the totals we ain’t stopin now
Donations going higher and we don’t know how

IceTray
Chat gets excited when we jump into the frame
Find a balance make a challenge stay awake and donate
5 hats on my head
Socks on my hands
You either herpderp get QWOPed or get banned

Ian
This is the tale of crewman Matt Wiggins
Busses slow down (?) on the desert of strife
(Wait. What?)
A vengeance filled quest to the land of cinema
Deeply he screams “Team Jacob for life!”

JP
Yeah, that was kinda weird but we’re back in the place
Cuttin’ up the mid range and dropin down the bass
Bidbot is ready
The doll’s hella creepy
Yellin booray cause we’re getting kinda sleepy

G*Star
Everybody shutup cause there’s too much bussin cross talk
Move the couch back cause now I gotta do a QWOP walk
Stop askin us about My Little Pony
If it makes you stop asking (I’ll admit I’m a Brony)

Ian
NOW BACK TO THE GOOD PART
From the day he arrived from the land of Nanaimo
(Uuuuh)
He quested to buy all the games that he could
He’s the brony of the hour
(Yep)
Otaku in the highest
(Oh god!)
He’s never crashed the Desert Bus and he never would
(Yeah, neither have we)

G*Star
Put your hands on your head and swing your hips. C’mon

Ian
Matt Wiggins
(What?)
Mutt Woggons
(No)

JP
Breaking Dawn was actually worse than Eclipse

Ian
Mocha Frap
(Nope)
Winter Ale

JP
Ian none of these are really Desert Bus related jokes

Ian
Roger that. Let me try it with another Matt
(Wait. No.)
Life is a bass filled dance floor and his name is Mutt Wubbins
(That’s not…)
Wubby wub wub wub wub wub wub wub wub wubby wub wubby wub wub wub
(Who are you?)
Maybe he’s a grad student because Timothy is his name
(Different person)
Or you can call him Ganon. Filling everyone with shame
(You know what? Fine.)

Matt
You guys getting coffee?! Okay! I’ll have a mocha!

Ian
This is the tale of Ganondorf Dragmire
Boss of the Dark World from the top of black horse
Once upon a time a thief from Gerudo
Now he’s a villain just waiting to get bussed

JP
Okay… it turns out Ian knows a disturbing number of things about Matt.

Ian
He completes me.

G*Star
Well dong, everyone. Well dong.

I just wanted to say the first slow-mo shot of Kathleen caramelldasen-ing really looks like it belongs in a rap video. The whole video is amazing, but the one shot stuck out.

Also, I'm not sure how I did this, but as I pressed replay yesterday I thought to myself, "man, it would be awesome if this continuously looped," and it did. I don't know if I pressed a magic button, but it just kept repeating.

And it was awesome!
Anyone: Would you kindly <insert request> ?

Heh, just after I get done typing my own version...

Yeah, I didn't hear that bit clearly. "Busser so ???", maybe.

aeric90 wrote:Cuttin’ up the mid range and dropin down the bass

What does Ian say in the background right after this line?

aeric90 wrote:Bidsbot is ready

BidBot.

aeric90 wrote:If it makes you stop asking (I’ll admit I’m a Brony)

I don't think Graham ever manages to get out the word "Brony"--which would seem to be an intentional joke.

aeric90 wrote:Boss of the dark ???? from the top of black horse

Dark World.

aeric90 wrote:Whale dong, everyone. Whale dong.

It seems to just be "Well dong"....

Dared00 wrote:It's Killahbyte. IceTray left 64K.

Didn't he become the new Ice Tray, though?

Anyway, like others, I enjoyed this video quite a bit. I agree that in general parodies-of-parodies/too-much-in-jokes are to be avoided, but I tend to expect a lot of fanservice around Desert Bus and the season finales, so it's fine by me.

(Timing-wise, it's appropriate to have a Desert Bus video, though as someone who started watching LRR videos after seeing Desert Bus 2, a video with lots of in-jokes isn't the best for new viewers.)

Still funny though. I also appreciated the camera work--the faux-epic angles were appropriate, as were the slow zooms punctuated by jumps matching beats in the music.

But at the end of Rapstar everyone agress that they will call Killahbyte IceTray and that no mention of the change will ever be made ever again. So I would look out for ninjas if I were you. They will seek too silence you.

Tough to hear but I figured the whole joke is funnier.

Since the meme from the weekend was Whale Dong I figure that's what he was going for. When you say it for 6 days I figured it starts to sound the same.

It would have been awesome if you'd put in a reference to Ian's uncanny ability to know what people are cooking just by hearing the sounds :D

I think it might be "Busser so dour / on the desert of strife"

I think it's either "Busses slow down" like you said, or "Bus is still down", reference to the BusCam going down.

And this here is actually Gerudo, not Garudo.

Yeah, it was mainly just typo fixings, but other than that the lyrics seemed a hundred percent accurate to me.

I said "Well dong"
I started that as "Well dong" and the chat morphed it into "Whale Dong" sometime on Monday, I think.

I stand corrected sir (as does the song). I guess masses of chatter do funny things when they're tired too.

It took me until the second viewing until I heard Morgan's pilot radio "Uhhhhhhhhhhh" :)

Great video guys! I admit I got a little depressed the moment DB finished and went off the air, but this made me so happy. Love it <3

I think it's "He's a PC."

I've got to check again to see if he was in the "Lair Assault" D&D, where it might be "Player Character." Otherwise, it might be the fact that he wears glasses, like the PC in "I'm a Mac and I'm a PC" commercials.

Well, now I know that "dour" is a word.

Oh right, I haven't commented on this video yet.

So, yeah, I didn't watch any of Desert Bus. I had other things going on that distracted me. Regardless, this is probably my favorite LRR song. And I agree with Trixy, it's better after watching the original version. Also, after watching The Lonely Island's original, unless that's what she meant.
