Falcor the Urinator

A few years ago when I saw the Trogdor video at Homestar Runner, I thought it was cute and funny, but I never thought it would take off. Boy was I wrong.

And I was reminded of this pop cultural avalance started over four years ago when I saw a nice little parody video, done with much love. So I present you my humble readers with Falcor the Urinator.



Personally, I blame Guitar Hero II for this all.

too bad guitar Hero 2 can't be blamed for Trogdor. It didn't exist yet.
I LOVE the Strongbad crew. Trogdor and Flag Day are two of my faves.
I notice you do too, since your little pic for your profile is from that arena as well.

I just meant it seemed likely the reason the song was in that kids' head at that moment was likely GH II.

And Yep... I am all about the Bubs-villainy action.

My God, that sofa! Those poor people. I like that this parody is coming along approximately 18,000 years after Homestar peaked. Centuries from now evolved robots will be analyzing Trogdor like at the end of that movie "A.I."

Then the question becomes: Will they understand it any more than we do?

Tuffy said...

Aha, that's just it. They'll *think* it means something to us. They'll *think* it's a clue to our society. We've "punked" the future!

Imagine the mess of interpretation they will get from it... that is a laugh indeed.

The GH2 version of the song sounds a lot different, and they do the "Subscribe!" thing at the end like all the Strong Bad vids. I love it.

I think the version they used in GHII was from that Strong Bad/HSR CD the Brothers Chap put out a few years ago.
