What a wonderful and fitting introduction, HyperCam! We’re here with Daft Punk and Pharrell one more time for an interview! How are you feeling?
We’re feeling good! Well, for robots at least. This tournament is fun so far, we like it here!
And what about you, Pharrell? Didn’t you say last interview that you’d love to face Mr. Krabs? I suppose you were ecstatic to meet him, and then to win!
I can’t quite describe the way I feel, but it’s somethin’ like that, yeah! Mr. Krabs was fun to fight against. He was just like he is in the show!
He put up a real fight. It was really close!
Yep! Even if you produce tracks listened to by millions, that doesn’t guarantee your victory. Look at Adam or Eminem…
They got a bit cocky though. They thought they owned the place!
Yeaaah, but still, I hope people voted without takin’ our feelings or personality into account. I mean, Adam had Weezer and Red Hot Chili Pepper in his sources! That was such a cool set! But people preferred jazz or the weird set of this FCC dude…
I mean, the audience here is… not the type of audience you usually get in your concerts, P. But so far, it voted in our favour… We’ll see how that goes against Jack!
Exactly! Pharrell, I know you’re all about collaborations, as you said previously. Did you find new people to collab with in here?
Yeah! We had so much fun with Will in the production of Wild West Rock! And then there was that weird obese guy with a big mustache…
I’m glad that even with our duels, we’re able to collab with some fresh faces here. It’s a nice breather from the artists we’re usually working with.
You’re tellin’ it, Thomas! I’m really wonderin’ who we’ll be workin’ with as the tournament goes forward…
It’s… it’s you.
Oh. I’m sorry… may I interrupt?
T-Thanos? What are you doing here?
I will not be here for long. Actually, it is a good thing the robots are here too. I had… a little dispute to settle with them.
I fear I know what you are talking about. But-
Be extremely careful with your words, robot. You know that in front of both my raw power and the power of my employer’s legal teams, you stand not a single chance.
Oh. Wait a minute. The host is here. He may be able to settle our little… dispute.
What the- hey! I-I’m warning you! D-do not do anything to our h-host!
Oh, but I will not. I just want him to answer a single question.
w-wats goin on
Tell me, little camera. I am glad I was able to negotiate a way stronger set of sources this time around. Oh, yes. Getting sources such as Disney and Star Wars truly gave my claim to the crown much more credibility.
u-ur scarrin me……
Thanos. This is not as important as you think. No need to get anyone else caught up in this.
Oh, but my employers care a lot about this particular issue. On the agreement I signed a few months ago, I noticed that some peculiar sources were missing.
wh- but i dont kno dis agremnt, its jon ntwoodman whoo signned it1!
But since you are the host, you are supposed to know about the sources we have. Therefore, here is my question. Was the soundtrack of Tron: Legacy part of the agreement on my sources?
W-what? B-but Tron: Legacy’s soundtrack wa-
It is just one soundtrack. And most people only know about “Derezzed”. It’s not such a big deal.
“Derezzed”. A song which topped the Billboard chart of the US Dance Club Songs… that is enough to catch my employer’s attention.
We both have much bigger songs and many people are expecting something else than “Derezzed”!
Every vote counts, robot. Especially the votes of those who are waiting for the Tron: Legacy soundtrack. They may be few, but they may be all that’s needed to turn the tide. Just look at how the girl and her drum lost to the man who you will fight next.
Pl-please everyone, remain calm, we have avoided a disaster so many times in these interviews…
I will not be satisfied until the camera settled the deal.
W-WAIT! Everyone! Please, I wanna talk!
L-listen, big purple guy. Didn’t ya notice that many fighters got on collabs? Y-you even did one with Pitbull and those aliens!
That is right. What is your point?
W-well, my point is, most of the time, contestants are clashing on these collabs. They mix several sources together in unexpected ways. They make people say “Wait, I can’t believe those songs go well together!”
A-and, I remember that duel between the jazzy cats and the Japanese kawaii TV girl. At one point, they made a collab with “Nyan Cat”. You know, that old meme from 2011 with the cat in space?
Hmmm… you may have given me a new idea for an acquisition. But what about this collab?
I-I got a question for you. Who had the source between the two?
…Hmm. You are good. I am stumped. Both could pretend to have Nyan Cat.
Exactly, big purple guy! Th-then, why don’t we just do the same? Why don’t we agree to both have the Tron: Legacy soundtrack? Can we have it like that?
Sharing? Hmm… Will the robots accept such an ambitious proposition?
We were about to propose this. There are many other sources in this situation, and most contestants seemed okay with sharing.
Okay, if you want an answer your lawyers can understand more… *clears throat and continues with a robotic voice* IN OUR QUALITY OF ORIGINAL COMPOSERS OF THE TRON: LEGACY SOUNDTRACK, WITH EXPLOITATION RIGHTS OF THIS SOUNDTRACK GIVEN TO THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY, WE HEREBY APPROVE, IN FRONT OF THE HOST OF THE KING FOR ANOTHER DAY TOURNAMENT HERE TO WITNESS, TO SHARE THE TRON: LEGACY SOUNDTRACK AS A SOURCE FOR THE DURATION OF THE AFOREMENTIONED TOURNAMENT WITH THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY’S OWN CONTESTANT THANOS HERE TO WITNESS, JUSTIFYING THE DECISION BY INVOKING THE AFOREMENTIONED CREDITS AND RIGHTS CONCERNING THE COMPOSITION AND THE EXPLOITATION OF SAID SOUNDTRACK. MADE IN STUDIO GUNNER. SIGNED: THOMAS BANGALTER, WITH APPROVAL FROM GUY-MANUEL DE HOMEM-CHRISTO.
*to Guy-Man, whispering* Bleh… As boring as you can get.
The terms of this contract are acceptable. I, Thanos, as a representative of the Walt Disney Company, hereby approve these terms. Does the host have any objections?
wel 2 be fair i didn understnd anytin after ‘quality’ sooo i gues i agreee
Then, it is settled. The Tron: Legacy soundtrack and its hit single “Derezzed” will now be shared between us.
Phew! Crisis averted. Thank you so much, Pharrell, for getting us out of this, but this is enough for one interview.
You say it… By the way, mister, erm, Thanos, since we are now sharing the track, I have an idea. Would you guys be okay for a collab together?
I’m down! The Tron: Legacy soundtrack always has a special place in my heart. I would be happy to see it return for a remix!
That could be interesting. I will participate as well, but first, I have an ape to snap. Let’s discuss this arrange after this round.
