Thomas, je les ai trouvés.
Parfait. Alright, everyone, are you ready?
Follow us, but don’t make any noise!
…What are we doing again?
I’m not sure exactly, just follow along!
I’ll be as sneaky as a mouse!
The squid girls just started jammin’ on the decks, that’ll be easier!
So, may I finally know what this ridiculous charade is about?
SURPRIIIIISE! HAIL TO THE KING, BABY!
What the fuck is happening?
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! PLEASE GIVE YOUR WARMEST APPLAUSES TO THE JAZZ CATS, OUR KINGS OF THE COLLAB!
OH! OF COURSE!
Oh my, you’re right!
Oh, so that was what this foolery was about!
Waiiiiii, do-don ga-don!
Congratulations! Congratulations! Congratulations! *HAWK HAWK*
What the fuck are you talking about? Kings of what?
Yeah, I thought we lost this thing.
Nah, friend, we’re the ones who lost. Here, you all, let me tell you about something. During this tournament, we were thinking a lot about collaborations. Heck, it’s even in our name, “Daft Punk featuring Pharrell”!
We love doing those things, working with other people, seeing what they can bring to a cut. And even though we tried our best, all of you here were better than us!
But you three cats, heaven almighty, you’re makin’ me gush! How many collabs did you do? 20 or something? That’s mad!
So… that’s why everyone’s here?
Yeah! They did more dual arrangements than we did, and we wanted to congratulate all of them right here, right now! Seeing you guys try something new with unexpected people like we do on our albums, it fills us with joy!
Well damn, guys, I wasn’t expectin’ such a heartfelt speech in the middle of my set! But I agree, some of my favorite moments of this tourney were when I collabed with my opponents. It was so much fun comin’ up with sick tunes that other stations would envy Jet Set Radio! But those Frenchies are right, cats! You killed it at this dual arrange thing. You did a collab with almost half the cast! I may be the King for Another Day, but dang, these cool cats are the Kings of the Collab!!
Heh, thanks. That Herbie track you did with us was fire.
Hey! Hey! You’re forgetting someone!
We’re a collaboration too! Hakuko and me, da-don!
Don’t interrupt people like that, Don-chan!
Well, isn’t he right, Hakuko? We ain’t the only collab team around!
Well, yes, he’s right! I’m used to doing collaborations, my rhythm friends and I always work hard to produce great Remixes from our tunes!
I love hearing what everyone makes when they’re together! Hey, Mr. K, I loved your scary collab with MissingNo.!
Oh yeah… um… thank you…
Eeek! You’re here!
Hello… I liked your songs too. Um, I really liked Timepiece Phase II…
Oh! Thank you! That’s one of our favourites too!
I also loved that really big collab Mr. Robot did, the one with the beat, da-don!
Oh yes! The Rhythm Masters and I were recording in a booth next door when all of a sudden…
*mimics a rapper* I appear today to drop a historic beat!
Welllllll, I am not used to receiving so many compliments! Usually, they come from my dimwitted dumbbots, but this is a nice change. I guess it was right for me to follow you all!
Hey, check it out, it’s the first sentence I heard from you without a single insult!
Is that bothering you, you brat in a hat?
Hey, at least it’s creative!
I’m honored you brought me along for this, Daft Punk, that is very kind of you. Most of my collabs were with my good friend the Professor, but a few other contestants were nice enough to let me perform with them. Like Hakuko! She’s a very talented girl.
*blushes* I’m honoured, Ms. Mariya.
I also enjoyed the collabs with Terebi-chan! She was so funny, and I never drummed so fast in my life, da-don!
Still as mad as ever, that wretched TV. She can’t stay still for more than two seconds! Our collaboration reminded me of that blasted hedgehog! You all ought to be careful around this horrifying tool!
ゆでたまご wwwwwwwwww vO
By the way, Robotnik, what was the drive for you to make so many collabs?
Probably for the same reason why he made so many tracks in the first place!
I can’t believe none of you failures are coming up with “I want to win this tournament” as a reason! Isn’t that the simplest one?
Well… you’re not wrong!
Ahhh, Daft Punk, I wanna thank you for bringing us all to remind us of those good times. The collabs were so much fun to listen to! That last surprise duel between “The Sega Masters of the System” and “The Girls in White” was a blast!
Yeah! I was also thinking of other contestants like Donkey Kong or Pitbull. They also did a lot of collabs! The lawyer, the bear, and Weird Al also had those huge collabs just like the one Terebi-chan did once!
Wait, didn’t Weird Al play his polka a few minutes ago? It was amazing!
Yeah! But frankly, Pharrell, if I gave a shoutout to every collab that happened in this tournament, we’d be here all night!
Hey, speaking of which, what about us?
Well… yes! What about you?
If this is a joke, it ain’t funny.
This is not a joke. We just wanted to know how you did it. And why did you collab with so many people?
Well, that’s what jazz is all about. Jazz isn’t a particular way of swinging things or about the dirtiness of the chords; it’s all about the fluidity of freedom. When you’re letting it all out there, that’s real jazz. And it would be selfish to keep that to ourselves.
Yeah, it was a good run. You’re all lucky it wasn’t a jazz competition.
I would have been up all night to compete if that was the case! Maybe I would have gotten lucky and won the competition, who knows?
Believe me, you wouldn’t have. Even with luck.
“Letting it all out there…” That’s such a different philosophy from ours. But it didn’t prevent you from making sick jams.
I guess. But yeah, have your crown back, K. Sort of. I mean, it’s still yours.
“It’s still mine…” but you’ll stay a different kind of kings, Jazz Cats. It’s good to be the King, but it’s better when you’re with friends who you can share it with! Right, Doc?
Grmbl… Right, Professor. After all, you know why I am not furious right now, even if you have that pesky crown.
Well, everyone, I think we’re done here! Thank you so much for having participated in this surprise mini-ceremony.
Yeah! Congratulations to the Jazz Cats for winning the only prize I truly cared about!
Hah, you’re exaggerating!
No I’m not! I was your feature in the tournament, Thomas! I had a reputation to keep!
Ahhh, it sure was a lot of fun! Thank you for the nice memories, everyone!
Yeah… collabing with everyone was a lot of fun.
Thank you all for showing us the power of sharing one of your turntables!
You mean the power of friendship, right Professor K?
If you ask me, Hakuko, I think that sample might be a bit overused!
*shivers* Y-yeah… I love m-making friends, d-don…
Well, Thomas, how about we get some sangria now?
Hah! Just for that, you’re a great feature, P! Whoever wants to come and have a little chat is welcome!
Hey, uhh, MissingNo… I just wanted to say… What happened in the studio when you… um…
You mean?…Oh… that… I shouldn’t have done that, I’m sorry…
It’s alright. Mr. Snake doesn’t hold any grudges either. You were a great opponent, by the way!
Um… t-thanks… if you think so.
I’m so happy! That I found you!
…Don-chan, what are you-?
Hmmmff… why can’t I hug you? That’s not fair, da-don…
Don’t do that please. Your hands are okay, right?
Ayaaa… they feel like butterflies!
I’m at least glad about something: this time, if you lost to someone, you had a second chance before getting your game over!
The first tournament looks so unfair compared to this one! Kicked out of the tournament without having proven what you were able to do… I would have been so sad!
Hmm. You could also learn from it. Gather intel.
That’s a good life lesson in general, Snake. But I’m not surprised. You were always good at reading others like a book in Super Smash Brothers.
You also need this skill in bullet hell games! Although for some, it’s more of a trial and error situation. *laughs*
Still, ZUN, you haven’t been lucky this time. Sent to losers’ bracket by the lawyer and the bear, and then eliminated by a finalist. You had it rough.
Not as rough as Reimu though! *laughs*
Well, sometimes, you just arrive in front of an opponent stronger than you think. I got my ass kicked by those competitive players in Super Smash Brothers, and I got defeated by Off The Hook with the closest margin imaginable.
We got even closer losses this time around though!
But Off The Hook were the freshest ones back then! They’re still fresh now, but this time, everyone else was as well. Speaking of which, let me get a fresher beer. Hey, blue thing!
I could definitely see that everyone was stronger. I couldn’t believe Otacon when I heard the new sources some contestants had this time. For example, you got two more series under your belt, Mr. Fils-Aimé. But I still don’t understand why you didn’t get Fortnite.
That’s because I still had some pity for the rest of you! If I had Fortnite for Nintendo Switch as a source, that would have been unfair!
*smirks* Good point. But even with all my efforts, it still didn’t quite pan out for me. I got eliminated after one match back then, and after three matches this time.
Aw, c’mon Snake, you did a great job out there. You didn’t have a lot to offer, but what you had were some great tunes. I created many characters, but I respect those who prefer quality over quantity.
What about you, Reggie? How was your time here?
The tournament was fun. If it wasn’t fun, why would I have bothered? I had some great matches against some unusual competitors, and I had royal victories that would make any player of Fortnite on Nintendo Switch envious of me.
Oh yeah, I remember you obliterated both the Dancing Alien Team and Thanos back then! They were no competition against you! But then, just like many people in the past few days, you lost by a very close margin.
Funny how some stories repeat…
*sigh* Absolutely. But I didn’t let that setback get my spirits down. With Bill at my side, we spread the spirit of family and fun Nintendo is known for during the past few days. And I am glad I got some help from Isabelle!
Ah yes, Isabelle from Smash!
I’m sorry, she’s from Animal Crossing: New Leaf on Nintendo 3DS. You know, the one I play all the time.
Yeah, ZUN, no fighter in Super Smash Brothers is exclusive to that game. Except Captain Falcon.
I’ll warn you, Snake, you are not prepared for what I can do if I hear constantly-asked requests.
That was not my intention. That was just what I heard from many people I spied on over the years.
*laughs* But let me tell you I am very impressed by this game, Reggie. The fact Snake and Isabelle can fight each other in the same game is nuts!
And the most beautiful thing about it is that it can defy your expectations. Some might expect the brutal Snake to leave no chance to the cute Isabelle, but in the hands of the right player, the tables can turn!
Well, that depends on how they are placed on a tier list!
Hrrrngh… You’ll never know the pain of overconfident players picking me because of my placement on a tier list, only for me to get humiliated by people who have mastered lower-ranked characters…
*laughs* I’m sorry, I never considered that! Hey, by the way, are you still looking for some more contestants for this thing? If even the brother of that skeleton guy can make it in Smash, maybe one of the girls I know could also get an invitation! What do you think, Reggie?
How ‘bout this instead?
Whoaaaa, calm down, it was just a joke! I was just messing with you! Don’t shoot!
Forgive me, but I’ve gotten my fair share of repeated requests over the years. So I learned some intimidation techniques and some magic sentences like “when it’s done” from an industry colleague working near Nintendo of America’s offices.
Hah, that intimidation technique sure worked! I was never prepared for such unforeseen consequences! *laughs*
…where have I heard that before.
Yeah… sometimes, these constant requests can get to your head a bit. Someone asked me at Cornell for MOTHER 3 to be localized after I stepped down. I guess that game will always haunt me…
Reggie, it’s good for your fans to hold onto something and have hopes. At least they know they have a chance to see their favourite characters again. I wouldn’t be so sure for myself.
I am sorry, Snake. Sometimes, the industry is unpredictable.
Hey, at least people freaked out when you were revealed in Smash, Snake! All is not lost!
*smirks* Yeah. At least I have that. Hey, bartender, give me a glass of water.
You don’t drink, Snake?
Not as much as you. I remember drinking too much in Alaska. That can have terrible consequences for your missions.
Give me a glass of water too, Wobbuffet. I need to stay sober if I want to keep talking about a family-friendly company in the future!
By the way, Snake, I heard your friend Otacon was here. Where is he?
He’s probably out there looking for that man in a mech.
Metal… Ajit Pai? He’s gotta be the first person to actively look for him!
Well, he’s into mecha. That’s his single reason.
I don’t think I would have liked living the fate of that man. I can’t imagine myself as a mech!
At least you would have the perfect name! “Reggie Fils-a-Mech”! *laughs*
…yeah. If I ever hear that name again, I’ll forget about it and just go home.
Well I’ll have my beard shaved! Are you really Mr. Bean?
This is the greatest day of my long life! Does this mean I can finally piggyback on the success of someone more famous than myself? I can see it now! No, wait, it was my stupid boy Donkey Kong who got invited, not me… But still! Even though I’ve met millions of people who are more famous stars than you, it’s great to finally meet you.
Ooo! Funny monkey!
Who are you callin’ a monkey, wise-guy?! Mr. Bean, I am not a monkey, I am an ape!
Ook ook ook!
What the- HEY! Talk about disrespectful! That is not like you at all!
This is a joke, a bit, a ruse, a jest… right? You’re not the real Mr. Bean, are you?
Well I’ll be a monkey’s uncle… You really are just as stupid as you are in the TV show! How on Kongo Bongo Island did you became so admired? How did you became a star like that?
*sigh* I guess “Never meet your heroes” is true! You’re the worst celebrity I’ve ever met! Not only that, you’re not even relevant anymore! While my grandson carries on my amazing legacy, you have nothing but garbage reboots in your future son! I’ll try and meet other stars now. Like James Dean, or Mr. Be- GAH!
Why hello Cranky! I heard something about mooching off of other people’s success?
Sure, you’re welcome to have a word with “Mr. Bean”… Knock yourself out. What a chump…
Mr. Bean? Never heard of him, so probably not worth my time… HMPH!
*Weird Al walks on stage with two other figures who can not be seen.*
Hello ladies and germs of the King for Another Day Tournament! Tonight we have something special from yours truly! Introducing… Cooking with a Killer Mixer! Tonight we will see who has what it takes to out cook the Hyper Operative Baking and Ripping Technology or better known as HOBaRT from Hobart!
YEAH!!!! THE NEW HOBaRT FROM HOBART!!
And who will challenge this mechanical beast of a chief? It will be none other than the bag of bones straight from the underground… Papyyyyrus!
HOWDY, EVERYBODY!!! I’M SUPER STOKED TO BE HERE!
So, here is how it will work. Our challenger will pick a dish of their choice and they and HOBaRT will make it. It doesn’t matter if it’s boiled or fried just as long as you can eat it! Then once the dishes are made, our judges will taste and give them a score! Who ever has the highest score wins! Now you may be wondering “who are the judges?” Well say no more as I will introduce them! And first up is… hailing from Dreamland and the one who puts the “fat” in “bad”… King Dedede!
Heh heh heh! I am a superstar warriah, and I’m waiting! C’mon, can’t this thing start already? I’m starved!
And second up is… hailing from Bikini Bottom, and the owner of esteemed resustrant the Krusty Krab… Mr. Krabs!
Arkarkarkarkarkark! This will be the easiest way to promote me Krusty Krab yet!
With all the fanfare out of the way, let’s hear what our challenger has to say! So, Papyrus how do you feel about competing against HOBaRT?
WELL, I’VE NEVER COMPETED AGAINST A MIXER BEFORE, BUT, IT’S CERTAINLY… SOMETHING NEW!
YEAH! IT’S PUMPED!
Make some of that Spaghetti like you made for me last time bone boy!
Oh no you should make a Krabby Patty boyo! Which you can get down at the Krusty Krab for $2.99 or 0.99$ on Wednesdays!
Doesn’t matter to me. Just as long as I can eat it! Although I wouldn’t mind some rocky road right about now…
I THINK I KNOW WHAT I’M GOING TO BE MAKING- WHAT GOT ME TO SUCH HIGH POPULARITY IN THE FIRST PLACE- MY FAMOUS SPAGHETTI DISH!!
GET READY, HOBaRT, FOR THE COOKING BATTLE ROYALE OF A LIFETIME!! I WON’T LOSE EASILY!
Come on, HOBaRT, you can do it! I believe in you!
NGAHHHHHHHHHHH! Show ’em, Papyrus! We’re counting on you!
WELL, WHILE WE WAIT FOR THE NOODLES TO BOIL, HOW ABOUT SOME IDLE CONVERSATION??
OH, YEAH, I SUPPOSE I DID BEAT HIM IN THE TOURNAMENT!! I DIDN’T REALLY EXPECT TO, CONSIDERING HIS OWN LOYAL FANBASE.
(Apparently they ain’t loyal enough…) Yeah guess ya beat me pretty good…
Sounds like the overgrown seagull is a little sour if ye ask me! Arkarkarkarkarkark!
DON’T FEEL SO BAD!! I THOUGHT YOU DID PRETTY WELL AGAINST ME! PLUS, WE’RE FRIENDS NOW!! I’D SAY IT WAS A NICE OUTCOME!
Yeah, thanks, I suppose. I would clobbah ya right this second, but I’m too hungry to lift my hammah!
NO PROBLEM!! OH, I THINK THE NOODLES ARE FINISHED BOILING.
OKAY, I SHOULD BE DONE IN A FEW MINUTES! I JUST HAVE TO ADD SOME *PIZAZZ*!
HOLD YOUR HORSES!!! PERFECTION TAKES TIME!
MIX IT ALL TOGETHER, AAAND… PRESTO!!! IT IS DONE! MY MASTERPIECE IS COMPLETE!
The mixer already made the dish 10 minutes ago, lad.
HERE YOU GO!!
I have to agree lad! This is almost as good as a Krabby Patty! I give this a score of 10 as well! (Hmm… I wonder how much money I can make if I had me one of those mixers…)
Hmm, this tastes dandy but I feel something is missing… I rate this a 7!
DON’T BE TOO SURPRISED IF YOUR TASTEBUDS ARE BLOWN AWAY WITH MY AMAZING CREATION!! HAVE A TRY!
Alright now for my turn.
ARGH! What in Davy’s Jones locker was in that! I am almost choked! That gets a 0 from me lad.
Boy! That was almost as good as last time, heh heh heh! I’m giving that one an eleven outta ten!
And the total score for Papyrus’s dish is… 14, which means the winner of this competition is HOBaRT!!!
Yaaaaay! Congratulations, HOBaRT!
ARGH! Ah well, it’s alright. I’m still proud of you, Papyrus!
I… I SUPPOSE YOU CAN’T WIN THEM ALL. SOMETIMES, YOU LOSE!! …TO A MIXER.
YOU’RE STILL PRETTY GOOD, PAPYRUS!!
I MEAN, I SUPPOSE I DID GET ONE PERFECT SCORE, BUT HOBaRT GOT TWO PERFECT SCORES!! A SPECTACULAR 27, COMPARED TO A MEASLY 14!
YOU SHOULD BE HONORED TO COMPETE AGAINST SUCH A GREAT CHEF! YOU GOT A DECENT SCORE!
…WELL, THAT IS TRUE. WELL, PERHAPS THIS CAN BE ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY TO BEFRIEND HOBaRT, TOO!!! WHAT DO YOU SAY, HOBaRT?
WOWIE!! ANOTHER WONDERFUL FRIEND TO MY FRIEND LIST! PERHAPS LOSING TO YOU ISN’T SO BAD AFTER ALL!!!
YEA- HEY! SOMEONE’S TAKING HOBaRT WITHOUT THE COMPANY’S PERMISSION!
Hey, I’m not green!…wait, I am. I’m just taking it for… repairs!
REPAIRS? MY FRIEND IS IN THE BEST SHAPE IT CAN BE, IT EVEN BEAT ME IN A SPAGHETTI CONTEST!!!
Hey, wait, you green guy! Yer a doctor, not a mechanic! Hey wait, if you are a mechanic, maybe you can fix some of mah destroyed monstahs!
Well, I, uh-
If ye ask me, I can only think of one landlubber who can be interested in this machine apart from me!
Ark ark ark, me knew it! You truly outdid yerself this time!
Curse you once more, Krabs! At least I noted down parts of the recipe!
Ark! Well, if you want to see all of it, I can help ya!
Here, lad! Take a look further!
Ark! Seein’ you scared is good, but I prefer when yer furious! I can’t wait for your next scheme, lad!
This is not the last you’ll hear of me, Krabs! Mark my words!
YES! DON’T MESS WITH MY FRIENDS!
I’ll admit that I was jealous of one thing Cam: the fact that you participated in the interviews.
Really, ‘Rina? That’s ALL you were jealous of? We could have been the Queens, but you mostly cared about the interviews?
Well, yeah! They would have been a lot of fun, wouldn’t they, Pearlie?
hahahaa ye they were funnnnn :)))) but theyy wuld hav ben fun with u 2, with a gud intrevvwir and a bad intterviewer
Huh? Who would have been the bad one?
oh uhhhhh not like dat, uhhhhh, like good cop bad cop yknow??
Oh, I get it now, hehe!
buut u shoud kno thatt u would have probbly ben controled by teh crown at the end liek i did….
…I didn’t think about that… it could have controlled the three of us…
That would have been AMAZING! Towering over our enemies like they were nothing! Playing our tunes at full blast for everyone ‘till the last Splatfest!
Would you trade absolute domination for your free will, Pearlie?
HyperCam, what did you feel when it happened?
proly the saem as u when galem toook control of u, same gimmik
That makes sense.
By the way HyperCam, I just realised something. If we won back then, we would have been the hostesses and the interviewers with Meowth… but that means you would have been a contestant!
oye ur rite!!1
Then what would you have done? Would you have been a contestant on your own or would you have teamed up?
john would probably have maed me a solo contestnt.. i had bery big victories and all, i would hav been op if i temed up withh some1 else
Well, all contestants have been buffed, including us! You would have received a buff as well! But what would your buff have been?
Well, it’s a camera so… “Rips related to movies,” maybe?
Pearlie, that’s WAY too overpowered!
well i dunno……. “2005-2009 yuotub”, “wmm”, “009”, “paralyzer”…. i dunno wat u can addd to dat. dats why i wouldnt have minded to b in a tem with someon. but who??
I heard that weird MissingNo. thing was a good friend of yours.
Maybe they would have been a good partner?
glitches would have been nice, but missinno alredy have a killer source list
You’re right! Glitches, creepypasta, bugged games, unused content? If you teamed up with it, you would’ve REALLY been unrestrained!
yee, we would have beeen sooooo op, but it would hav ben fun!!!
Hmm… well, what other options do we have… I remember you were a fan of that fat robot guy.
That rude Robotnik guy? Pshhh, why would anyone team up with that jerk?
teh pingas mastr is a great guy, but why would i tem up if he has sonic already? saem with jack&elmo…. if both of em only had ytps maybe dat would have worked, but……
Hmm… what about people who weren’t contestants then?
Boy, Marina, if we start talking about them, we’d be here all ni-
Dansa med oss klappa era händer gör som vi gör ta några steg åt vänster!
w8 i kno dat song!! ooo ooo ooowa waaah!!!
ooo ooo oowa waaa aaoooo!!1!!1!
Oh boy, you again?
I’m surprised it was you! That song doesn’t sound very Japanese…
Uhhh… good, good.
ye, its nico nico! my jp sister!!
Wait WHAT? Your “Japanese sister”?
ye she basicaly does everything liek me, but on jp youtube, not on youtrub!! and many of her meems were also mine 2!
PUNCH! PUNCH! FALCON PUNCH!
Oh, she seems like the perfect buddy for you!
Wait, HyperCam, Terebi-chan also has some anime in her sources. Doesn’t that bother you?
wel every1 has a wild ting in their sourcelist, i mean the robot guyss also had minion man
You have a point, we also had God of ink…
wat u mean god of ink is a spla2n song
You know what, nevermind.
but ya soooo anime is somthing i can handel. teh important ting is that we both had similar meems in similar times!! so ye, if i had to tem up wit someon, dat would probbly have been u, nico nico
Hey, HyperCam, her name is Terebi-chan, y’know?
ye but i cal her nico nico becausee i only kno her by that name. but thats alrite, she understand, rite nico nico?
Gee, with such a team, I wonder how far you two would have gotten in the tournament!
i dunno, maybe we wud hav ben kicked out round1 liek u, who knows
If you ask me, that had no chance of happening! You’re just too popular!
Grmbl… yeah, you are…
hey u know, what matterss for us is less da crown & more da friens we made along teh way.
How original of you… but yeah, you’re right.
けものフレンズ ! wwwwww
hahaha yea nico nico!! i would have lovd to tem up with u!! lets hang out more sometime!
Aww, you two are so sweet! I would have loved to interview you if you were in a team!
I would’ve been weirded out… but that would have been fun!
That’s why we love the both of you!
*It’s near the tail-end of the party. Neil Cicierega shambles back over to the edge of the roof with his arm in a cast.*
Finally, a place I’ve seen before! Looks like I can finally get back to looking cool!
OMG ITZ U NEIL!!!!!1
uh o,, sorrie neil…
*Adam is on his phone near the railings.*
…Sorry, Mickey, I can’t hear you well; the music is very loud.
…Hey, it’s alright, it could be worse. Right now, it’s three girls playing idol songs. Idol, as in, Japanese idols, you know?
…I’m doing better. I got some rest at the hotel. I’ve never been more ready for a new tour right now. But only if that’s alright with you guys.
…Hahaha, I can’t wait to see what you guys have done. I know it’s gonna be good. I’ll catch you later, Mickey. Tell the gang I said hi. Cya.
YEEEEEEEEOOOOOO!!! Look who it is!
Hey Adam, if a record’s good, it stays good the second time too! In most cases, at least.
What do you want this time?
Well, I wanna thank you, amigo. I wasn’t sure that conversation we had back at the bar had changed your mind, but seeing you get out of the hotel was a great sight!
I didn’t do it to get the approval of fuckin’ Pitbull.
I’ll tell you why, Pitbull. He wanted to know if he would fit in. Right Adam?
Huh? Hey, what are you doing here?
I just wanted to chat a bit with Pitbull before we all leave. It was a pretty damn nice time, wasn’t it?
You tell it, perro! Seeing our three alien friends dancing in such a majestic fashion will always leave me with a huge grin!
Yeah, I’m glad they all got back together in the end. This was the greatest happy ending I could hope for. Otherwise, Adam, I hope you had a damn good time too.
I still don’t know why I got here in the first place. I should have known when I received the invitation by a person signing “Notwoodman”. What fuckin’ kind of name is that?
You still attended though.
Yeah. On the phone, he insisted it was very important. And I ended up almost dead last. So much for “important”…
Well, I heard some hombres sayin’ that they got surprised at some of your stuff. They thought you would be lame, but you opened their hearts to songs they would have never heard otherwise!
That’s the whole point of this tournament, to hear our tunes in unexpected ways. I loved when that happened. Always fun.
And frankly, Adam, were there any other contestants who hated you?
Yeah, Pitbull, honestly there were some. But Adam, that’s mostly because they were hating everyone else, not specifically you.
I just want to know one thing, Adam. Did you have fun in the end? Was there anything that made it worth it?
If it’ll make you stop looming over me, there were a few things, yeah. I got a few song projects in my hotel room, I got some inspiration from some other people here, I attended this loser group thing where I met you…
You even did a few collabs! I’m impressed! Felicitaciones!
Hmm. But did it make this whole tournament worth it for me? I don’t know. But I won’t let those few things fall apart. I’m still who I am, but I’ll take at least what I got from here.
That’s a damn good answer to me.
Hey, Will, it seems the King is back at the decks. Why don’t we go dance with our alien friends a bit more?
Why the hell do you keep calling me Will? But sure thing, let’s have a final dance off like these guys. Hey Adam, it was nice seeing you.
Hmm. If I never see your faces again… good luck out there in the music industry. You’ll need it these days.
What a beautiful goodbye, amigo!
Hey Adam, look over there.
…Well, champ, see you in the next festival! Dale!
*DJ Professor K finishes a song on the decks. The crowd is dancing. As the song ends, a gigantic crowd cheers the DJ.*
This one was for y’all, folks! And now, if you excuse me…
Oh? What’s going on, Professor?
Huh? Why did the lights go out? Did I crush the building too hard?
What the- Did Nosferatu turn out the lights again?
Only I am supposed to snap fingers.
Thanos! Remember the agreement you signed!
Hrrrngh… what is this supposed to be?
Oh no, did I do that? I’m so sorry…
You’re a freak for sure, but I think it was the DJ this time!
erri1 pls b quite teh kingg wana speak!!
Well, everyone, we’re about done for tonight. I only have one song left for y’all.
Hey! You can’t just end the part-hee like that, ho!
Yeah! I wanna keep dancing!
You better have a good reason to end this so quickly, platitudinous platine-mixer!
Well, first, we have kids in the audience, and I don’t want ‘em to go to bed too late.
Hey! That’s not fair! I wanna keep drumming, da-don!
But Elmo doesn’t want to go to bed! Elmo is having too much fun!
Awww, I wanna talk with all of you more! I’ve never met so many heroes at once!
There’s no way I’m leaving now! I’m not a kid anymore!
Some of you may call Quote a kid, but he’s not!! I don’t want to stay here if he has to go!!
… [You feel embarrassed.]
plssss i may talkk liek a kid but im not 1!!!
Listen up. All of you youngins can do what you want, if you ask the ones who take care of you. But they’re cool people, and they want nuthin’ but the best for you. Either way, that doesn’t change the fact that I’m really freakin’ tired right now. My age is gettin’ to me. I can’t keep such a party up all night! Not like I used to…
We understand. Don’t push yourself too much, K!
But I don’t want to leave you all hangin’ like that. After I’m done here I’ll put on a mix of tunes from everyone here at the tournament that’ll play until the mornin’ comes. And if one of you wanna take the decks, talk with Meowth and he can arrange for ya to play a thing or two. But before I go, I wanted one last thing from all of you.
wat is it???
Does anyone in the audience know why I asked the lighting guys- oh snap, I almost forgot! EVERYONE, LET’S GIVE A HAND TO THE TECHNICAL STAAAAAFF!!
So, I asked the lighting guys to dim the lights. Can any of y’all guess why?
Hey… we can see the stars more clearly now.
Wait a second. DJ Professor K, don’t tell me-
Meowth, that’s my line!
How… how did you know?
You can thank our finalist Mariya Takeuchi. She’s the one who told me about what y’all were doin’.
The… stargazing sessions?
Stargazing? Like looking at real stars? Wooow, that’s cool!
Stargazing? Waaaah, that sounds so lame!
All of y’all in the first round losers’ group, I wanna give a special shoutout to you. As far as I know, you were some of the first to break the ice and make an effort to get to know each other. Many veterans also got together during the first tournament, but not as quickly as you all did. I’m sure you inspired many others to also break their shells and collaborate with each other. You may have arrived dead last, but you arrived first in another way.
Yo, that is really fuckin’ nice of you, DJ.
Hey! There are kids in the audience!
Fu- I mean da- oh, screw it. My bad.
So, for this last song, I wanna try something a little different. Let’s take a moment and look at the stars, just like this amazing group did during the tournament. Maybe we can learn a thing or two about them, who knows. Let’s have a little time to appreciate the silence after all this wonderful music. Maybe you’ll get somethin’ out of it? Or maybe you’ll get nothin’. Who knows. Can’t know till you try, yeah?
So, there you have it, cat. Your Mojo thing is finally over. I hope you’re proud, man.
Well, it’s not exactly my Mojo, but thank you! I am pretty proud. Giving these interviews has been quite the experience!
yea they kinda went off teh rails somtimes
That’s right! So anyway, we’re about to sign off for the very last time. Is there anything you want to say to the fans who have been watching at home this whole time before we go?
…Um, nothing at all? You sure?
But this is your last chance to say anything! You really don’t want to???
…alright fine. Uh… Thank you, everyone. Keep fighting your fight, whatever that may be, and never give up! And remember that no matter what happens… There’ll always be Another Day.
wait thats it? ur not gonna say goodbye? :’(
I’m not sayin’ goodbye, I ain’t goin’ nowhere! Now get outta my face, Cam, I got a day to prepare for and a radio to get back to.
omg hes gonna die
The streets don’t wait for no one!
This is a message from the writers team. We want to thank everybody for reading the interviews and stories we’ve posted on the Mojo.
We’ve really enjoyed reading your reactions and seeing all the fanmade artwork and stories. We’re happy to see that everyone liked the characters as much as we enjoyed writing for them!
The original plan was to only write a couple interviews as a small fun project to go along with the tournament. But we eventually broke out of the interview format and started writing full on scenes with dramatic arcs. Everyone ended up enjoying the characters and their interactions so much, we were fired up to write even more! This was never intended, and never would have happened without your excitement.
If you have any content you want to show off please either tweet it with the #KingForAnotherDay hashtag or post it in the official fan discord. We love to see all the cool stuff that people are making.
We really enjoyed writing for this project. We might come back. When you least expect it…
Thank you for participating in the King For Another Day Tournament!
