On March 14, 2005, The Brothers Chaps appeared at the "South By Southwest" festival in Austin, Texas. They showed many things including footage of Puppet Homestar Runner touring the Austin area filmed earlier that same day. At this presentation, viewers were shown similar material to that seen at the NYU Talk which occurred two weeks prior.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Um, Mike? Are you ready to roll yet?

MIKE: I'm afraid not, my friend.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Boooo.

MIKE: I dunno, I don't think it's going to happen. There's too much pressure. I've got too many files on this computer.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Too many files.

MIKE: Too many files.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: You need to defrag.

{Audience Laughter}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: The By West Show. That's what I'm in town for.

MIKE: South by Southwest?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I don't know. It's called By West. I wanna — I wanna see some cool bands.

MIKE: You're not gonna see any cool bands.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Nope?

MIKE: You're not.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Why not?

MIKE: Well...

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Did you forget to get tickets?

MIKE: We did forget to get tickets.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Crap. Oh well, By West.

{Cut to Homestar Runner on top of a building overlooking a city.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Everybody's...got hair! They put products in their hair! They're all...dressed real cool! I'm not dressed cool at all! I wear the same shirt, every day! {Deep breath} Ah! Boston!

AMANDA CONGDON: Um...There's some over there...We have lots of chicks fans!

MIKE: This is a geek conference man...

AMANDA CONGDON: Homestar—

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {to Mike} I know.

AMANDA CONGDON: Homestar, all the chicks love you, why don't they wear your T-shirt?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I don't know! You're not wearing my T-shirt. Yeah. What's the deal??

AMANDA CONGDON: {laughing} Sorry!

{Laughter}

[edit] Trivia

  • While Homestar usually wears the same shirt every day, there are quite a few exceptions to this rule. In the Strong Bad Email caper, for example, he is wearing a shirt from the store, and he has worn many different shirts throughout all of the holiday toons.
