Strong Bad plays some Temple of Apshai

Strong Bad Email #4

Instead of a regular message, Strong Bad receives a Hairstyle Runner design. Anger and hilarity ensue.

Cast (in order of appearance): Strong Bad



STRONG BAD: {singing} I check the email once, I check the email twice, doo doo doo, doo doo doo... {stops singing} Okay, let's see what we have got here...

Homestar Hair

STRONG BAD: Homestar Hair...? What the... {A graphic from Hairstyle Runner appears on the screen.} Oh man! I swear if I get another one of these freakin' "Hairstyle Runners" from one of you guys, {types "delete that crap"} I'm gonna have to start busting some heads, okay?

{Presses enter. The image shrinks until it disappears, and a message reading "crap deleted" grows on the screen.}

STRONG BAD: I mean, how come you people never play my game, man? I never get any Strong Libs in my email. I mean, there is this whole game out there that's all for me that you guys can fill out you know, and like, send me some hilarious crap or something. Now you got me all cheesed off! I'm gonna play some "Temple of Apshai". Forget you guys. {begins playing Temple of Apshai, an 8-bit game featuring a guy exploring a dungeon.}

{The Paper falls, reading "Click here to e-mail Strong Bad".}

STRONG BAD: Oh, my hit points are, like, inexcusable in this dungeon, man. I need to find some Elixir or something.

Fun Facts

  • This is the first time Strong Bad deleted something in anger, although we don't see the now-standard "DELETED" screen.
  • It is also the first Strong Bad Email to feature dialogue that takes place after the paper comes down.
  • The Floppy Disk Container holds "Temple of Apshai," a real game (with many sequels), and was available on quite a few old computers, such as the Atari and was best known on the C64. However, the graphics on Strong Bad's screen are not from Temple of Apshai, but are actually a cut-and-paste job from an old Spectrum game called Chaos: Battle of the Wizards.

DVD Version

  • The DVD version features a hidden creator commentary, accessable by switching over your DVD player's language selection while watching the email

Commentary Transcript

(Commentary by: Mike Chapman, Matt Chapman)

MATT: THIS has a big inconsistency in it with the ability to, uh, this old computer-

MIKE: {laughs} Yeah, displaying the color picture.

MATT: Yeah. Not only can it display JPEGs, it can display a full-color one. Yeah. And there's also a reference to, uh, to Strong Bad Libs in it, huh?

MIKE: Yeah. We still occasionally get a Strong Bad Lib if someone's watched this email and then...

MATT: And then does one.

{long pause}

MATT: Say-

MIKE: Not a lot of animation going on in this one.

MATT: Yeah, this was, uh...

MIKE: This one would probably take us- we could probably do this in under 20 minutes nowadays.

MATT: {laughs a little} Probabl-

MIKE: It probably took us 6 hours at the time, but...

MATT: Yep. And then now here it's color, color for Temple of Apshai, too.

MIKE: Yeah

MATT: Why? I mean, he could be playing, like, Final Fantasy according to-

MIKE: That's a skeleton. That's a skeleton. That blue, isn't that? Isn't that the skeletons from-

MATT: Yeah. I always thought it looked like that blue thing, you know, The Close Encounters of the Third Kind
