('''Commentary by:''' [[Matt Chapman]], [[Mike Chapman]])

-
''{The commentary begins with Matt singing da-das to the tune of an action theme. He laughs slightly at the start of his second line, apparently at Mike's confusion.}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Matt's singing a song, everyone, that ''{laughs slightly}'' I don't know where to go with.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' It's...it's the On Point Kings'...''{laughs slightly} A-Team''-like&mdash;
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{simultaneously}'' Oh, okay.

-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' &mdash;theme song that plays while they look at their brochure!

-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{overlapping}'' I thought you were g&mdash; I thought it was ''just'' the actual ''A-Team'' ...
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' No. It's ''just'' shy ''{both laugh}'' of the actual ''A-Team'' song.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{singing}'' You can pretend that you're Hannibal,

'''BOTH:''' ''{singing}'' Murdock or ''{Mike stumbles slightly}'' Face, <br>

-
'''MATT:''' ''{overlapping}'' Yeah, that's pretty good! That just came outta nowhere.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Yeah. Uhh...so, the ''A-Team'' toys, I mean, that show...was it for kids?
+
-

-
'''MIKE:''' ''{simultaneously}'' Yeah.

'''MATT:''' &mdash;Mike, and so they ''had'' to do what they could. I dunno, I feel like it was&mdash;

-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Well, for a primetime show? What ''primetime'' show now has action figures?
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Yeah. That's true. Yeah, there's even a show...''about'' comic-book superheroes ''{laughs slightly}'' that doesn't have action figures.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Yeah!
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Like, it's like, ''Lost''...

+
-
'''MATT:''' Yeah! Yeah.

-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Primetime shows don't cater towards ki&mdash;I guess, back then there was...far less kids' programming.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Yeah. Look at that robot claw! ''{Mike snickers}'' ''{Strong Bad displays the pamphlet}''  Oh, yeah. ''{closeup on the helicopter and stick figure}'' That could be you, ''{laughs slightly}'' Mike. ''{Mike snickers throughout}'' You could get chucked out of a...spindly helicopter. B4KDØR&mdash;B4KDØR H4XXØR was a thing that had been on our, uh...whaddaya call 'em&mdash;

-
'''MIKE:''' There's a&mdash;

'''MATT:''' Yeah! ''{pause as they watch the Municipality video}'' Oh, man, that is an ominous-lookin' sky there. ''{pause; Mike makes a thunder sound effect along with the email}'' The few, the proud. <!--I was unable to tell if the sound effect was Matt or Mike, but judging by Matt's very quick next sentence, I guessed Mike-->That was prob'ly&mdash;I&mdash;I didn't go back and watch the...the...Marines commercial where the guy turns into a knight ''{Mike laughs}'' after climbing some big...rock?

Well, if anybody knows, fun fact it, change "unidentifiable", and clear out this comment.--> ''{Homestar prods his spoon at the camera}'' Ooh, look at that...P.O.V.-style spoon, ''{Mike snickers}'' too! ''{short pause}'' Sega tapes? Oh! That is not a pamphlet, Mike. That was a Space Invaders ''{both chuckle}'' instruction booklet.

=== Fun Facts ===
+
-
*''[[Wikipedia:The A-Team|The A-Team]]'' was an 80's action show about four mercenaries who fight to protect the oppressed. It is perhaps best remembered for the mohawk-wearing character B.A. Baracus, portrayed by [[Wikipedia:Mr. T|Mr. T]].
+
-
**The brothers nearly perfectly recall the song from an ''A-Team'' action figure commercial, which can be viewed [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xC3AgzQk6yA here]. This version of the commercial is likely not that which the brothers remember, but its lyrics are the same.
+
-
*''[[Wikipedia:The Dukes of Hazzard|The Dukes of Hazzard]]'' was an action show in the 80's which featured the Duke brothers, Bo and Luke, who were constantly at odds with the corrupt politician Boss Hogg.
+
-
*''[[Wikipedia:Heroes (TV series)|Heroes]]'' and ''[[Wikipedia:Lost (TV series)|Lost]]'' were both primetime action shows that were active at the time this email was released.
+
-
**''Heroes'' does in fact have some action figures, but they are not marketed to children in the way that ''A-Team'' action figures were in the 80's. They are largely intended as collectors' items.
+
-
*''[[Space Invaders]]'' is one of the best-known early arcade games. It is often cited as being one of the games which made video games a major industry worldwide.
+
-
*[[Wikipedia:Boston (band)|Boston]] and [[Wikipedia:Journey (band)|Journey]] are both bands which had many of their hits in the early 80's.
+
-
**Matt mentions ''[[Wikipedia:Journey Escape|Journey Escape]]'', a 1982 game for the [[Atari 2600]] in which the player guides Journey past "Love-Crazed Groupies" and similar foes in the band's attempt to escape after a concert.
+
-
*Madame Bodewell is an [[unseen character]] from [[pet show]].
+

*The line "Each is sold separately with rifle and gear" later was used to describe [[the Topplegangers]].
