Easily my new favorite video. I burst into laughter as I started realizing what was getting ready to happen, and it only grew from there. Haven't laughed that heartily in a long time, and it was well needed. Whale dong indeed, guys!

Graham has responded that he isn't... but I like to imagine G* is.

This was amazing. Best LRR video in a long time, which says something since the videos haven't exactly dropped in quality.

THIS. SO. HARD. HNNNNNNNNNG!

Also, this was a comment on the Escapist:

Michael S. wrote:So where is the dubstep version of this song?


I ask this question too. I mean, all you need is like two lines of Ian's chorus, then just go all dubstep beats.

Didn't it come from Jer's insanity-inducing game of Titus the Fox? Titus broke Jer, QWOP broke Graham, Caramelldansen did not break Kathleen. Matt broke everything.

I honestly didn't think it was "He's a PC!" XD I heard "Raised in BC!" which is.. Also relevant? I guess?

Yes, it totally did. Jer beat level 1 and showed me the screen that ostensibly said "Well Done", and I noted out loud that the font made it look like "Well Dong".

...Huh. I legitimately thought the game was *that* horrendously awful that they actually wrote "Well dong!"
I stand corrected! :D

Technically The Lonely Island version isn't a parody at all. It's an original song written by them, with Michael Bolton's extensive PotC knowledge. So it's a parody of an original. ;)

And Geoff_B, yes. Yes it did. The chat also destroyed him too! Many, many times. ;) But then Ashton said "Come to daddy.." and made it all better. :D

While it is an original song, it is possible to have an original song itself be a parody of a genre.

As much as I was doing to try to spread this image around, it is an edit - in the original, it's an E (and you can look at the E in "WELL" to see what it looked like).
While no one overhear you quickly tell me not cow cow.

It won't leave my brain. Best earworm in forever.
Funny if you watched DB5, Funny if you know Lonely Island; Extra Hilarious if you know both.

Also that Ganondorf costume was awesome! Where did it come from? Was it a loner or cobbled together from existing costume pieces in the Moonbase?

Pastiche. Most of Weird Al's original songs are pastiches of artists.

This song is amazing! I've listened to it so many times, and really just need to get an MP3 version of it.

I disagree with Ian's statement about Matt's bus crashing though, as he crashed it 2x this year, and as we learned, has an automatic bus crash button located right beside his alarm clock at home.

Just chiming in a couple days late to say that this is also my favorite LRR so far this year. Have watched it several times every day this week so far. Well dong indeed.
