  1. I'm in the IE with no AC and I get that sensation of the heat-dome melting your brain. I was hoping for more supporting evidence from Carrey, but I guess he can only say so much without burning bridges. I have a complicated opinion on Jim Carrey, love his art and acting, most of his politics, loathe his spreading of anti-vax BS. It's complicated.

  2. Not going to mention Raul Julia's depiction of Dictator in the Street Fighter Movie? Fine… fine–I'm fine. Really. Just peachy.

  3. Can't wait for Ol' Musky to see this video, because you just know he's the type to compulsively name search himself.

  4. Elon Musk being a world ending villain is just the cherry on top of our dystopian future. I think you would definitely pull something cringe-worthy before ending it.

  5. Emerald green Riddler creates a device connected to a TV that can read every person's mind. That is a Social Network definition where every person put his mind on display. Elon wanted to buy Twitter, which some experts say reason was to influence public opinion :/ ?

  6. πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½ fucking thank you for this video!

  7. For algorithm reasons, I watched this before the first in the series and I frankly didn't question the idea that Maggie would in medias res something like this.

  8. Yeah but Robotnik has a doctorate and does know how to invent technology. Musk has a BA and just pays other people to do it.

  9. I still don't understand why did the writers paired Sonic with a cop. Why not an athlete, a runner that Sonic could coach? Or a honest scientist that contrasts to Eggman?

  10. Dumping on Elon Musk βœ”
    Discussion of Jim Carey βœ”
    Unabashed display of passion for Sonic the Hedgehog βœ”βœ”
    Gratuitous use of silly voices and over the top line readings βœ”βœ”βœ”

    Damn, this video feel like it was tailor made for me

  11. i was waiting for you to do the emerald joke. thats the longest ive held my breath, thanks for not leaving me hanging

  12. when you consider that Robotnik's design was inspired by Theodore Roosevelt and was made to embody industrialization (in a kinda Ghibli-esque sort of way) it seems fitting that elon musk would be a modern inspiration.

  13. Leave Elon Musk Alone! You just don't understand 10D string theory snake oil chess!
    Respect the man who invented life itself and space-time. You should be ashamed of yourself.

  14. I would take over the world by translating Karl Marx's The Communist Manifesto into corresponding bible verses, thus winning over the class traitors here in the US. With that much firepower, the revolution will be as succesful as it is bloody. Though I faint at the sight of blood.
