[edit] Transcript

{Open to a close-up of a washing machine with clothes tumbling inside. The washing machine has the word "Warsh" on it. Zoom out to a view of Coach Z in a laundromat, standing next to the washing machines and a basket of clothes.}

COACH Z: {Powered by The Cheat voice} Can I borrow some detergent from you, please?

{Peacey P comes over in spinning 2-dimensional form with a basket of clothes, mumbling incoherently.}

COACH Z: Say, wait! Look, it's the rapping man, come to do his landry! I was supposed to ask, can you record {said as RECK-erd} on my new ablum?

PEACEY P: {mumbling while bouncing, his body bounces away to the right while his head floats where it is, then his body slowly slides back in line with his head.}

COACH Z: I can understand well that's the yes! Hit it one-two go rap song!

{Cut to a close-up of a boombox, with a tape in it labeled "Mick's Tape". Hip-hop music starts playing. The credits appear:}

COACH Z: {rapping in normal voice} Coach Z, R-A-P,
Accidentally featuring Peacey P.

PEACEY P: {rapping in normal voice} You biscuithead, you ain't featurin' me!

COACH Z: I said accidentally featuring Peacey P!

I'm the lyricbolical Coach-Z,
I like my ointments topical most-ly,
And if you got the itchy toes, then come see me,
I got a rap song, featuring Peacey P!

PEACEY P: My name is P, comma, Peace-ay,
I likes to eat my bacon all grease-ay,
I'm the best guest rapper in the music biz,
I ain't even know whose song this is!

COACH Z: {speaking} It's mine! I thought I made that abundantly clear! Here comes the hook!

COACH Z AND PEACEY P: {rapping} R-A-P-S-O-N-G, yes,
Yes, y'all, and we don't stap,
Coach Z and Peacey P cold rappity-rap!

PEACEY P: Much money, mo' money, cash money, drop!

COACH Z: I'm the rhyme janitor wringin' out my mop!

PEACEY P: Stop, fool, you're crampin' my style!

COACH Z: I'll sprinkle wack MCs with my sawdust pile!

PEACEY P: Listen up straight, y'all biscuitheads,
I'd like a piece o' dry toast wit' two scrambled eggs!
Order o' hash browns, make 'em extra crisps,
A glass o' orange juice an' a bowl o' cheese grits!

COACH Z: {speaking} Oh, dag! That man has just ordered breakfast in the middle of my rap song!

Yes, y'all, and we don't flake,

COACH Z: Here comes Tenerence Love with an R&B break!

TENERENCE LOVE: My name is Tenerence Love,
Plus my name is Tenerence Love,
Divided by my name is Tenerence Love,
Equals my name is Tenaaay-erence Love!
Remainder three!

Yes, y'all, and we don't stap,
Coach Z and Peacey P cold rappity-rap!

TENERENCE LOVE: {singing backup} Tenerence Love is on a rap song...
...And I'll soon have a rap song...

COACH Z AND PEACEY P: {simultaneously, singing like they're dizzy} R-A-P-S-O-N-G, yes,
Yes, y'all, and we don't stap,
Coach Z, Peacey P.

{The music and cartoon stop. Zoom out to a view of Coach Z and The Cheat in front of The Cheat's computer.}

COACH Z: The Chort, that was amazing! It's gonna rocket straight to the bottom of the BET charts!

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

COACH Z: Oh, your payment. How's about a nice slice of chin strap pizza? {holds up a pizza slice that has a chin strap on it}

{The Cheat sinks out of view turning a little green, making sick-sounding The Cheat noises.}

{Cut to the boombox again. The level readout display is shaped into the word "END"}

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • "Mick's Tape" is an intentional misspelling of "mixtape", an informally released hiphop album consisting of one or more MCs' work, usually for promotional purposes.
  • "Itchy toes" refers to Athlete's foot, a fungal disease Coach Z implied he had in labor day.
  • R&B breaks, which involve soulfully sung lyrics rather than rap, are featured in many modern hip hop songs.
  • Topical means applied externally on the body. Most ointments have labels reading "for external use only".

[edit] Trivia

The loadry screen.
  • This is the first complete Powered By The Cheat toon since New Boots in April of 2004. This closes what was then the biggest gap ever in between a type of toon; it has since been surpassed by the over-five-year gap between Crystal Fortress and Fish Eye Lens, also Powered by The Cheat, which has itself been surpassed several times.
  • The loading screen reads "Loadry".
  • The Brothers Chaps mentioned making a rap duet with Coach Z and Peacey P in an interview on the Late Nite JengaJam.
  • The YouTube description for this toon is "The Cheat makes a video for Coach Z's Rap Song accidentally featuring Peacey P."

[edit] Remarks

  • "Lyricbolical" and "Loadry" are portmanteaus.
  • Coach Z's mop bucket has "JAN8OR" written on it, another example of Internet Slang.
  • The symbol on Peacey P's jersey sometimes resembles the symbol for Mercedes-Benz, which is similar to the symbol for peace. Other times it is the whole peace symbol.
  • This is the website's first full-length Powered by The Cheat toon not to include any cameo appearances by The Cheat.

[edit] Goofs

  • In the intro credits, "featuring" is misspelled once as "feauring".

    • "Coach Z and Peacey P featuring Peacey P/featuring Tenerence Love/feauring Peacey P" is also a reference to Teen Girl Squad Issue 13, in which Peacey P is featured as a "guest star on [his] own album".
  • Coach Z paying The Cheat in chin strap pizza echoes Strong Bad offering to buy The Cheat a pizza after completing Everybody to the Limit.
  • "Wash" was previously spelled as "warsh" in original, and as "worsh" in 20X6 vs. 1936.

  • Eggs and bacon are featured.
  • The page title of this toon, and the name of the restaurant "Waffle-O Stow" refer to Peacey P's record company, Crample-O Stow Records, who released this song.
    • In addition, the appearance of the "Waffle-O Stow" in the toon is similar to a Waffle House.
  • The tattoo needle draws blood.
  • Tenerence Love wears and rides a doughnut.
  • Peacey P's saying of the word "cash money" may be a reference to Strong Bad's character video, which includes a wooden prop of a money bag reading "Cash Money", and the email lackey, where a sign on Bubs' Concession Stand states that Bubs accepts cash, money, and cash money.

  • The anthropomorphic fried egg which chases the bacon, and also appears (holding a pistol) in silhouette at the end of the video, is wearing a bandit mask, and closely resembles one of the enemy characters from the early '80s arcade game "BurgerTime".
  • The Lyricbolical Coach Z is a reference to Biz Markie, whose best selling album The Biz Never Sleeps is sometimes mistakenly called "The Diabolical Biz Markie" due to the album art.
