*The cafe, quite busy. Jack & Elmo are sitting at a table, training. A big shadow approaches them.*
Ho ho ho, ho ho ho, stop, stop, stop!
You got a nice rhythm going there, little buddy!
Ohhhh, look who’s there thinking they’re the new hot sensation in town.
Oh, it seems we got a sore loser from losers’ over here!
SORE LOSER? Look who’s talking! A pathetic guitar-plucking ventriloquist who barely won his first battle against two pushovers! You’re not in a position to talk to me with such a disregarding tone!
That’s what you just did though.
I’m Dr. Robotnik, I say what I want!
“What I want”! Hahaha, Elmo can say it too, Mister Robot!
Yeah, whatever. But what were you meanin’ by “new hot sensation in town”? I’m curious.
Don’t you realize you got your success the lazy way, you idiot? Look at you! You say fancy words like “fantastic”, “awesome”, “glorious”, “stunning”; and then, what do you do with them? YOU PUT THEM IN DIMWITTED BOXES AND USE THEM TO PLAGIARIZE A WHOLE SONG!
Plagiarizing, man? C’mon, that’s a stretch. I don’t even use boxes in my remixes. Did you see the collabs? The visual effects, the voice quality, the references, the fast-paced medleys? They’re way better than your old-fashioned stuff.
But they reduce you to a simple instrument, while my own creations use my wonderful voicing talent and original melodies to boot! I have been in this hilariously experimental business for longer than you were, and I am a way better musician than you hacks ever will be!
A better musician… sure, you do some spoken word and you played the organ once. Cooooool. Meanwhile, I defeated the devil with an electric guitar. Can’t argue with that!
Wooow, you really did that Jack?
Elmo, don’t listen to us. You might hear bad words.
Elmo doesn’t like that. Elmo will learn new words somewhere else. Hey hey, Miss TV, can you come see Elmo please?
Jack does not want Elmo to hear the words he says, for some reason. But Elmo wants to learn! Can you teach new words to Elmo?
So Elmo’s head goes… PARN! Hahahaha! That was really funny Miss TV! Give Elmo another one!
チルミル～ チルミル～ 元気
Chi-ru-mi-ru! Hahahaha! Elmo almost drank that earlier! Jack read about the side effects and stopped Elmo, though.
Oka… what? And who is this sweet old man with a monocle on your screen? Elmo is curious…
Hey Elmo, what are you doing?
It’s that mad TV with all of her weird sources! What is that freak doing there?
Elmo, I already told you to not watch TV alone! You could see scary programs outta nowhere, it could drive you mad!
Mad? Elmo? But Jack and Mr. Robot are already mad!
Hahaha, Elmo is happy when people are happy!
Okay well, I have some work to do on my terrifying contraptions. The next pesky fools I have to beat will be no match for them. But do not forget, Black: after all these years, I still am better than you!
We’ll see about that, dude. Good luck getting that promotion!
Otacon, do you know anything about these boxes they were talking about?
Maybe they were describing the samples used in some types of YTPMV, as in their basic form, they’re shaped like boxes.
“Why tee”… what?
Y-T-P-M-V. They’re short for “YouTube Poop Music Videos”, Snake. It’s a very specific type of source.
Hmm… So it seems these “YTPMVs” come in different types, and that the two contestants were fighting over which type was the best… Hrnnngh… At least I know what I’m expecting if I’m facing them in the fut-
*tips the box over with her muscly arms* ハッピーセット！
Snake, what’s wrong? Snake! SNA-
Please Otacon, don’t make that stupid scream. I’m alright. It was just this TV box girl making a prank.
Yet another box? You gotta tell me more about it, Snake, I can’t keep up with both our box sources and these other boxes in the tournament!
