-
 
+
-
'''HOMESTAR:''' That has the headphones on it.

'''HOMESTAR:''' Aw, man, this is the worst part! In the band-aid one, he just went like "band-aid, all the time, laughing man with band-aid brand."
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{laughs}'' All right.
+
-
 
+
-
'''HOMESTAR:''' Yeah. It was all a big advertisement for ''{higher voice}'' band-aid bran.

'''MIKE:''' Bandages, not band-aid.
