Transcript

{As an arrangement of the Old Intro music plays, the screen reads "Telltale Games presents: An all-new cool game for attractive people." Static appears. Cut to Homestar, wearing a brown wig, shaking a TV remote around in Strong Bad's basement. Throughout the entire trailer, the characters speak haltingly and with little enthusiasm, as bad actors.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Aw man, this dang ol' remote control can only change the channels and make everybody speak Spanish.

STRONG BAD: {offscreen} Why not try this one?

{Cut to the entrance of the basement where Strong Bad is seen wearing a blond wig and holding a Wii remote. The Cheat appears next to him}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: What's that? {Strong Bad walks over to him. The Cheat jumps onto the couch} A futuristic candy bar?

STRONG BAD: Almost. {swaying his hips} Check it out!

{He starts waving the remote as clips from the game are shown. Clips include Strong Bad looking under a box, playing Snake Boxer 5, checking emails, and kicking The Cheat into the washing machine.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oooo. What game is that? The candy bar game?

{Cut back to the basement.}

STRONG BAD: It's "Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People"! {Close-up on Strong Bad} But you can play too!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {Voice over more clips from the game} Strong Bad, but this game seems to have all the cool characters from "homestarrunner.com".

{Cut back to Strong Bad in the basement}

STRONG BAD: That's right. And even the lame ones.

{Cut to a clip from the game where Coach Z is in the locker room}

COACH Z: {crying} Go, go away!

{Cut back to the basement.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {waving the remote around} I'm pointing, I'm clicking. It's like an adventure. {Crickets start chirping, Homestar smirks a bit}

{Cut to clips of the game where Strong Bad runs through various locations}

STRONG BAD: {Voice-over} You'll go to all the cool places we go in the cartoons -

{Cut back to the basement. Close-up on Strong Bad}

STRONG BAD: - in five totally awesome monthly episodes! {Jumps in the air}

{Close-up on Homestar}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Five episodes? Where do I buy them ats?

{Cut to Strong Bad walking into the computer room. The Cheat appears under the table}

STRONG BAD: That's the best part, Hom...star. {Placing his hands on his hips} It's WiiWare!

{Cut to a crudely-drawn version of the Wii menu. Homestar pops up in front of it.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: WiiWare!

{Cut back to the computer room}

STRONG BAD: So you download them over your internet-style connection! {The Cheat points to the outlet where the Lappy is plugged in.}

{Close up on Homestar}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Get out of town! What are we waiting for?

{Close up on Strong Bad}

STRONG BAD: June of 2008!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I got so excited, I forgot everything you just said!

{Cut to Strong Bad in front of the blue area from the beginning}

STRONG BAD: "Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People!"

{Cut to Homestar, standing in front of the same background as the intro screen from the website}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Featuring Homestar Runner!

{Cut to The Cheat in front of a green background with "the cheat" written on it.}

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

{Cut to the three of them standing in the blue background where the game's logo appears on the left.}

STRONG BAD: Shut up. Five adventure-packed action-sodes. Available this summer. Only on WiiWare.

{A red box reading "and on PC" is slapped on the logo. A chomping noise is heard. Cut back to Homestar sitting on the couch tossing a bitten Wii remote aside.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Uh, Strong Bad. I think we're gonna need more candy bars.

Fun Facts

Snake Boxer V

Explanations

  • The channels on the scribbled Wii Menu seen behind Homestar are (first row) the Disc Channel, the Mii Channel, the Photo Channel, the Wii Shop Channel, (second row) the News Channel, and the Forecast Channel. This is the default layout of the menu when you first start the Wii.

Goofs

  • Coach Z's eyes are very bright in his gameplay footage, to the point of being invisible on some displays.

Inside References

  • The music that plays during the first set of gameplay footage is the music from A Jumping Jack Contest.
  • Strong Bad mentions his "internet-style connection".
  • Strong Bad called Homestar "Homstar", a reference to calling Homsar Homestar and vice versa.
  • During gameplay footage Strong Bad throws a box of Temporarios at Strong Sad.
  • The label on the disk in the floppy disk container reads "P.Quest".
  • During the clips of Strong Bad running through various locations, the background music is an arrangement of the music in Senor Mortgage.
  • Homestar's pronunciation of "WiiWare" is similar to that of his pronunciation of "Email" on the Main Pages.
  • When Homestar and Strong Bad are in the computer room, the email on the screen seems to be the same one from the advertisement.
  • Homestar biting the Wii remote is another instance of Eating Non-Food Items.

Real-World References

  • The graphics on the boxing arcade game that Strong Bad plays (Snake Boxer V) strongly resemble the graphics on Boxing for the Atari 2600.
  • The logo at the end that says "Also on PC" is similar to the As seen on TV logo.
