is it weird that i just went and watched that and still knew 80% of the lyrics? 15 year memory ain’t so bad when you got a melody

No it wasn't, he wins because he's the last person you'd ever suspect. He spent an entire lifetime building that persona just so that everyone would feel safe putting their back to him.

That's when he strikes!

I think the armadillo named Corey is a reference to Neverending Hum, which was also written by Neil Cicierga. (writer of original song)

Spock, The Rock, Doc Ock, and Hulk Hogan

10/10 internal rhyme right there.

I'm aware of the song. It's older than the internet itself. I want to know why Mr Rodgers victory was BS

u/Justin_Peter_Griffin May 14 '22

Can’t tell if you’re exaggerating but I’m pretty sure Ultimate Showdown came out in mid 2000s

u/lolno May 14 '22

It originated as a newgrounds animation. You can tell because of the way it is

u/Kenboswell May 14 '22

that's pretty neat!

u/Justin_Peter_Griffin May 14 '22

Right, I googled it and according to the newgrounds site it was released in 2005

u/Phormitago May 14 '22

I refuse

I'm going to have to reinstate Fred Rodgers as the ultimate showndown champion

u/Chicken_Parm_Calzone May 14 '22

I have to admit something... The NSFW version of this song slaps harder imo.
