[edit] Transcript

{The background is upside-down throughout the video, with the blue sky on the bottom of the screen and the green grass at the top.}

HOMSAR: AaAaAaAaAaAaA! Hi, Wonder Mike! I'm Homsar! The captain of the gravy train.

{His bowler hat pops up and turns into a railroad engineer's hat.}

HOMSAR: Climb aboard!

{His hat returns to normal.}

HOMSAR: I've brought my best foot flowered... Pshoooo!

{His hat slides down the back of his head, then snaps back at the end of the sound.}

HOMSAR: Sure beats breaking up with me. Don't look now! I'm just a friendly reminder. AaAaAaAaAaAaA! AaAaAaAaAaAaA!

{While screaming for the second time in a row, he spins around the screen backwards two and a half times. He ends up at the top, upside down.}

HOMSAR: Think I won the Powerball. {His hat pops off, then lands back on his head before the video ends.}

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • "The gravy train" is slang term for a situation where someone can make money easily.

[edit] Trivia

  • This page is an Easter egg, accessed by pressing the "eject" button on the Character Videos page.
  • Homsar's character video is the only one with background music.

[edit] Remarks

  • Since the camera is presumably upside-down throughout his character video, Homsar starts the video upside-down and ends it right-side-up; this was more visible during April Fools' 2006. He appears to stand on air again in the big toon A Folky Tale in an Easter egg.

[edit] Goofs

  • Right when Homsar wails for the last time, a part of his head pops out of his body. This is best seen by viewing the Flash file and zooming in near the back of his torso.

[edit] Real-World References

  • Wonder Mike is a member of The Sugarhill Gang, famous for the song "Rapper's Delight". In the beginning of "Rapper's Delight", Wonder Mike says "I am Wonder Mike and I'd like to say hello", so Homsar saying "Hi, Wonder Mike" could possibly be a response.
  • "Think I won the Powerball" is a reference to the multistate Powerball Lottery, which is known for having large jackpots.
