[edit] Transcript

{Fade in to the characters standing in the field at night. Strong Bad is, as usual, dressed in a more distinct costume with a different body shape. The text "Silhouettes are up early this year!" is visible in front of the characters. Crickets chirp. After several seconds, light music begins to play and Character 2 walks into the frame.}

STRONG BAD: {in a mock-relaxed voice} And here comes Character 2. It looks like he's stumbled upon... the pagan festival, that's right.

{Zoom in onto Character 2}

CHARACTER 2: Baseboardbaseboardbaseboardbaseboard.

STRONG BAD: What's that, Character 2? You'd like a costume as well?

CHARACTER 2: Ha-bo-mey-bo.

STRONG BAD: How about I give you... a garland of sweet thyme. {A garland of thyme pops onto Character 2's head, replacing his hat} That's right, look at that. You might even say that I just... gave you a thyme. That's right, far out.

{The silhouette of Ridley screeches, eats Character 2 (but not the garland of thyme), and flies at the camera with a whooshing sound}

STRONG BAD: Mode seven.

{The music fades out as the crickets resume}

[edit] Easter Eggs

They've got a point.
  • Decompiling the Flash file reveals a hidden message upon trying to remove the silhouettes. This teaser's message reads "can't see this on youtube".

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Trivia

  • This was the earliest Halloween teaser, beating Halloween Safety by exactly two weeks. This is alluded to in the teaser text.
  • The actual Halloween toon came out twenty-four days after this teaser, making this the longest span of time between the release of a Halloween teaser and its corresponding Halloween toon.

[edit] Remarks

  • The teapot on Homsar's head is smaller than in the toon, and there is no empty space inside the handle, or between the teapot and the spout.

[edit] Real-World References

  • Strong Bad appears in silhouette as Ridley from Metroid; specifically, his Super Metroid sprite.
  • Mode 7 is a graphics mode used by the Super NES that allowed for rotational scaling and pseudo-3D graphical effects, such as Ridley flying toward the screen in Super Metroid. It was previously mentioned by Strong Bad in SBCG4AP Advertisement.
