{Music plays as a red silhouette of Homestar Runner dances in front of a goldenrod background. Homestar dives off-screen and pops up in front.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {speaking rhythmically} These are the actions that you can do on your turn when you're playing the board game, {lifts up a Trogdor meeple} Trogdor!! The Board Game.

{The Trogdor meeple rises off-screen. Cut to a farther shot of Homestar. Verbs appear on banners as Homestar recites them.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: You can move {Homestar moves forward to the front} or chomp {spittle flies out of Homestar's mouth} or hide {Homestar ducks out of sight, then reappears on the other side} or burrow or even burninate!

{A small squiggle of smoke rises from Homestar's mouth}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {speaking} Hey, that was great! It was super catchy! {The banners fall down on top of each other, and then tumble down off the screen.} Everybody's gonna remember this one! Again!

{Homestar ducks out of sight, then reappears much closer}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {continues singing} These are the things that you can do {The Trogdor meeple wanders in from the left} when you go into your house {Homestar takes out a cottage meeple} and inside your house {Homestar flips the meeple, showing the burninated side} you have a couple friends {Doreauxgard pops up} and maybe eat a snack {Doreauxgard looks shocked, then is replaced with a plate. Slices of cantaloupe appear on the plate} and then play a board game, {The plate is pushed aside. Homestar is now at a table where the board game is set up, with a Trogdor meeple and two peasant meeples} called Trogdor!! The Board Game.

{Homestar is now by himself again}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: And these are the actions that you can do, {words on banners appear as Homestar recites them} they are move and chomp and hide and burrow and burninate! {speaking} What'd I tell ya? Super catchy!

{Homestar ducks out of sight. Then he comes back.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Super catchy!

{Homestar ducks out of sight. Then he comes back, this time hanging from the top of the screen.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Never forget!
