Epic Rap Fights of History simply returned victorious after nearly 2 years of silence, and the challengers in the most recent fight are none besides the most notorious CEOs of the year: Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg versus Tesla’s Elon Musk.
The option of competitors is not a big surprise– I have actually been seeing this match-up asked for in remarks for a minimum of the in 2015. Series developers “NicePeter” Shukoff (who plays Zuckerberg) and “EpicLloyd” Ahlquist (who plays Musk) had actually formerly stated they would be beginning the brand-new season next year, however revealed they ‘d be launching a bonus offer episode today. The last time the 2 did an in-between-seasons benefit fight, the challengers were Deadpool and Boba Fett … which one fucking ruled, too.
It’s pleasing to see just how much research study Lloyd and Peter have actually taken into the characters’ disses. We will not ruin their bars here, however Musk takes both the apparent swipes at Zuckerberg’s information hack scandals and his failure to emote and refers to a few of the lesser-known awfulness in Facebook’s history– even I ‘d nearly ignored FaceMash Zuckerberg, for his part, strikes Musk with his rejection to keep his mouth shut on Twitter and his household history (the genuine Musk would most likely concur with the jibes about his daddy, who he called “an awful human” in a Wanderer interview).
Besides their understanding of the characters’ doubtful habits, the people reveal they have actually still got it when it concerns composing, acting, and production worth. Musk arrive on Mars at one point in the fight (and appears to wield the real Boring Business weapon), while Zuckerberg levels the electronic camera with a properly weird, glassy-eyed look that we have actually all seen on the genuine guy.
I sense that both individuals who enjoy and dislike Zuckerberg and Musk will have the ability to discover commonalities in the fight, and now I’m questioning what the hell else Peter and Lloyd might have in shop for us next year.
