Date: Wednesday, November 25, 2020

Running Time: 6:09



{As usual, the toon starts in the basement of the Brothers Strong; the light dims and the projector screen comes down. The first slide shows a fan dressed like a peasant with paper fire on his head. Some smaller flames are attached with springs.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Nice flamin' peasant costume! And those are some quality doing-sproings on your flamin' peasant robe too!

{Scene cuts to Peasant's Quest at the old man's inn.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover as he types in the command} Get doing-sproings from old man.

{The game pops-up with a message "That's the worst thing anyone has ever tried to type into this game. Ever."}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} What?!

{The game then cuts to the game over animation. Afterwards, the scene cuts back to the basement. The next slide shows a person in a muscular Strong Bad costume. He's sitting next to a laptop with "Lappier" seen on the screen.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Somebody finally got it right! I don't know where you found another biological pair of A+ #1 All-Pro Panache boxing gloves...

{Zoom in on the gloves, which indeed have "A+ #1 All-Pro Panache" printed on the label.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} But the real kicker is that you dressed up as me on January 7th!

{Zoom back out. The date "01 07 2015" appears on the bottom left corner of the picture.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} That's the day every year where I cover my arms and abdomen—

{A bag of brown Fluffy Puff Marshmallows descends from the top of the screen. The text is in varying shades of orange, and a sticker reads "sure, they're 'seasonal!'".}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} —in expired seasonal Fluffy Puffs!

{Zoom in on the costume's left shoulder. Marshie's face appears on the costume.}

MARSHIE: Open up your pores, and let me into your heart! Literally! Clog 'em up, clog 'em up, clog 'em up, y'all!

{The King of Town pops into frame, silhouetted.}

THE KING OF TOWN: I'll do it! I volunteer!

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Get outta here!

{The King of Town descends. The next slide shows four people dressed as the 4 Gregs, in front of poorly-drawn bleachers drawn on hexagonal grid paper.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Now these are very accurate.

{The Gregs' words appear in speech bubbles over their respective costumes:}

SCI-FI GREG: We're scientifically accurate!

D N' D GREG: We're fantastically accurate!

OPEN SOURCE GREG: We're technically accurate!

JAPANESE CULTURE GREG: We're... the Japanese word for accurate? My language app hasn't taught me that one yet.

{A Teen Girl Squad-style smartphone appears with text reading "so you want to be able to subtitle pirated anime? lesson 12: accurate?". A buzzer sounds as "not unlocked yet" with red X's appears below.}

{The next costume is Senor Cardgage standing in front of a garage door, holding a grocery bag.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Hey look, it's Senor Garagedgage! Man, these Cardgage costumes just keep gettin' better! Like, I would totally pay this person to come to my house and hang out in character. Y'know, we could like, sit around and batch the talentbision...

{A Telebision appears to the right with the words "Let's Batch Some Talentbision!"}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Or like, halph a culp of teembs...

{A mug of tea appears to the left with the words "Shall We Halph a Culp of Teembs?"}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} It'd be great!

{The next slide shows a fan in his living room dressed as Crack Stuntman in a green jacket, sunglasses, and a drawn-on five o'clock shadow. A beat starts.}

CRACK STUNTMAN: {voiceover; rapping} Well you're a this kid, living in the suburbs and you want a Halloween costume. You find a green jacket, a pair of sunglasses, but you wanna put some stubble on you! So kids, don't-draw-five-o'clock-shadows with permanent styles, come on, come on—

{A Sharpie-like marker appears to the left and gets a ban symbol over it.}

CRACK STUNTMAN: {voiceover; rapping} Non-toxic washable markers are gonna save some lives! {beat stops; no longer rapping} Or at least prevent an annoying rash on your chin. It hurts when I drink fresh lem'nad!

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Thank you Crack Stuntman, that will be all.

{The next slide shows someone dressed as Homestar Runner with white paint covering their face and neck, holding a drink can covered in pink duct tape.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} You really committed to slathering that white paint all over your face, huh? My only question is, {hesitantly} what did it look like when you closed your eyes and mouth...?

{The next slide shows the same photo with the eyes and mouth edited to appear closed, causing an eerie faceless look. Music sting.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} {screams}

{The next slide shows a recreation of Strong Bad's "dangeresque: cyberthymez" drawing from Twitter, with a futuristic Dangeresque costume and a Kick The Cheat plush in green visor glasses.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} What the frig-awesome? My brains are experiencing heretofore-unknown levels of frigawesomine! Lemme tell you all what's going on here. This person very faithfully recreated some Dangeresque cyber-crap {the drawing appears onscreen} I Tweeted like a year ago.

{Futuristic music plays. Zoom in on The Cheat; a line points to The Cheat's projected computer screen and the following words appear in yellow as Strong Bad speaks:}

videlectrix mainframe
security.override m*all.the.dang.firewalls
~/. bash in the head

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} You got The Cheat bypassing the Videlectrix outer core with his custom twenty-eight-eight TotalTronics Holocraunch Sim-dogger!

{A line points to the gear in back of The Cheat and labels it "TotalTronics 28.8 Holocraunch Sim-dogger (totally jailbroken)". Pan to Dangeresque.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} And there's Dangeresque 2.58, jacked into the mainframe with his sawed-off Atari Taze-chuk.

{A line points to Dangeresque, with a label reading "danger.esque v2.58". Another line points to the wires connected to his neck, reading "totally.jacked". Another line pointing to his Atari Taze-chuk has a label reading:}

Atari Taze-chuk
7800 model

Air-Sea Battle
Canyon Bomber

{The text flickers and disappears, and the music stops. Cut back to a wide shot.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Man! Apparently I should just start Tweeting random stuff to see if people will dress up like it next year. Lessee...

{Cut to the Lappier's screen, on which is typed the following:}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} "Tentacle mouth Strong Bad," — {stops typing} that's a good start — {typing} "cardboard box snowman adjacent to Homestar Runner with a Yorkshire pudding condition."

{Strong Bad hits enter, then types "edgartweeterhands.exe".}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Tweet! {return to photo} All right! Now we just gotta wait a year!

{Long pause.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Oh, I mean not—not now.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {voiceover} Oh man. I can taste that pudding condition already!

{The next slide shows a boy with glasses in a Teeg Dougland costume.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} This is another case where I don't think this is a costume. I think this is just a picture of little Teeg Dougland. Y'know, when he'd like, manage a group of stuffed animals in his room instead of a metal band.

TEEG DOUGLAND: {voiceover} I'm afraid I've got some bad news, toys.

{Cut to Strong Mad's closet door, sitting near which are Aunt Gert, Gooblies, a Large Bean plush doll, and Poodonkis.}

TEEG DOUGLAND: {voiceover} Our playdate with Scotty Titi has been cancelled.

{Cut to Poodonkis.}

POODONKIS: {in Larry Palaroncini's voice} But he's the only one who can get past the first boss in Rygar-uh!

{Cut to Aunt Gert.}

AUNT GERT: {in Mary Palaroncini's voice} Yeah, and he always brings Fruit by the Foot!

{The next slide shows someone on their front porch in a large Homestar Runner costume. The angle of the mouth makes it appear as though the right side is more open than the left.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Whoa, never seen this mashup before. It's a Homestar Runner doing that Three Stooges {the image zooms in and out on each syllable} "rawh-rawh-rawh!" sound... costume.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {voiceover} No way. I don't make that ol' Curlyman sound! Everybody knows I prefer to do that snappy-clappy thing with my hands.

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} With your hands.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {voiceover} Yep.

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Let's hear it.

{Homestar makes quiet sounds of strained effort.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} That—that's what I thought.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {voiceover} I did it!

{Cut to Homestar rolling around on a blue carpet whooping in the style of Curly from The Three Stooges.}

{Cut back to the screen. The next photo takes place in a Strong Bad's basement-patterned room, where a man in a Senor Cardgage costume, a man in an Istanbul costume, and a man possibly dressed as Bubs are standing.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Well... at least your wall knows how to make a good costume. Seriously. Good job, wall.

{The next slide shows a woman outside in a Champeen costume with red and yellow striped stockings.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Oh, it's Champeeni Longstocking. My favorite obscure Swedish Homestar Runner character.

STRONG SAD: {voiceover} Uh, technically, if it was from the original Swedish, it would be {exaggerated pronunciation} Champeeni Loongstrump!

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} You stop it with your try-to-pronounce-foreign-words-authentically-but-not-do-a-very-good-job-of-it.

{The next slide shows a woman outside with black wings, a staff, and a "Six-Sadded, Die." shirt, next to various Trogdor-themed cardboard cutouts on a flat surface with a license plate.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} I think this might be a Keeper of Trogdor?

{The card for Worchex rises from onscreen. White question marks appear above his head, and the card moves back down offscreen.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover; singing to the tune of Trogdor} Burninating the trunk-or-treat! {zoom in on buckets in the background decorated with flames and a Troghammer figure} Burninating the industrial-sized buckets of concrete waterproof sealant!

{The next slide shows someone in a Roucoulm costume, with a fluffy white dog next to them.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Aaah! The dark gates have opened! {Mr. Poofers's eyes, nose, tongue, and tail blink into existence on the dog} Mr. Poofers and the Jibblies Painting have joined forces! We're so doomed!

{Mr. Poofers's mouth yawns wide.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {voiceover; singing} Jibblie-poof! Jibblie-poof!

{Mr. Poofers closes his mouth. The next slide shows who appears to be a child in a Troghammer costume.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} It's the Troghammer from Trogdor!! The Board Game! Except he's from the adorable Troghammer Jr. expansion. {with a teenager inflection} I heard that if you use him in the game, he just kicks Trogdor in the shins over and over again, until he gets so annoyed that he stops playing, and he goes back home to his cave and makes a sandwich, except Troghammer Jr. secretly used all the mayo, so it's a really dry sandwich, and Trogdor's allergic to dry sandwiches, so he develops a slight rash as a result, in addition to his previously bruised shins. {normal voice} Man! The Troghammer Jr. is brutal!

{The next slide shows a man in a Dangeresque costume holding a nunchuck gun.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} I think this guy's been sending the same photo for like the last four years. But I can never come up with anything funny to say about it. Aaand I still can't.

{Slapping sound as the last slide is shown, reading "Thanks for still giving enough of a crap to dress up! Best fans ever, man!" and displaying the following costumes:}

  • A man putting his arm through a Trogdor cardboard cutout, next to someone dressed as Strong Bad
  • Someone in a muscular Strong Bad costume with their arm around someone in a face mask
  • Someone dressed as Monkey D
  • A man in a Homsar costume, hopping on one foot with pieces of chewed gum on his face
  • A woman in a Trogdor costume with a green dress
  • Someone on their porch in a Strong Bad costume
  • Someone in a Large Bean costume
  • A man in a Goblin costume next to someone dressed as the Carnivorous Undead Sheep
