[edit] Transcript

{Fade in on a snowy mountain backdrop, with the Casio tune from the original Strong Bad Sings playing. As the Announcer begins speaking, Strong Bad walks in from the left with the camera following him. He stops, and the Fat Bluebird flies in from the right and lands on his glove, chirping and shedding some feathers as he lands with a "splat" sound.}

THE ANNOUNCER: For years he's thrilled and captivated himself with his music. And now, it's your turn!

{As the Announcer says "your", the Casio tune stops and You've Got an Ugly & Stupid Butt begins.}

STRONG BAD: {singing} You've got an ugly butt.

{As Strong Bad sings, the Fat Bluebird scratches and turns its head.}

STRONG BAD: {singing} And a stupid... butt.

{While Strong Bad is saying "butt", he turns his head towards the camera and the Fat Bluebird turns his head towards Strong Bad, before briefly bowing its head downwards.}

STRONG BAD: {singing} Ohhhh!

{The Fat Bluebird looks up at Strong Bad as the Announcer begins speaking again, while the CD cover of Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits zooms out of Strong Bad's mouth, fading in and rotating.}

THE ANNOUNCER: Strong Bad Sings... {suddenly changes to a deeper, more energetic voice} on vinyl!

{The vinyl cover zooms in and replaces the CD version with an explosion, and the background is replaced with purple mist. Trogdor kicks in, lowering in volume when the Announcer speaks.}

ANNOUNCER: Cheap as Free Recordings and Fangamer {their respective logos appear as they are mentioned} present Strong Bad Sings like you've never heard {"Somebody Told Me (Now I Believe Them)" now plays} it before!

{Cut to Strong Sad sitting on his bed in a Taranchula shirt, bobbing his head to the song.}

ANNOUNCER: Or— well— like exactly like you've heard it before—

{Cut to live action hands holding a Videlectrix Media CD-R with "strong bad sings and other type hits" on it. Sparkles shoot out as it quickly turns into the vinyl.}

ANNOUNCER: —but now it's on a bigger circle!

{The list of songs scrolls up the right side of the screen with blurred footage of the record spinning in the background. The song playing is in yellow, that being Theme from Dangeresque II: This Time, It's Not Dangeresque I. An orange-bordered rectangle on the left zooms in and moves down as it spins vertically, showing clips of Dangeresque Puppet Squad: The Hot Jones Hijack.}

ANNOUNCER: All of the hits! {pause as the song plays} Some of the misses!

{Circles begins playing. The rectangle disappears, and a blue-bordered one spins horizontally as it zooms in. It shows the song's tape playing in front of a blurred picture of someone playing a guitar.}

ANNOUNCER: Featuring special guests Limozeen!

{Because, It's Midnite begins playing, with footage from its karaoke video in the rectangle, the border now glowing blue. The background shows the same footage, but blurred and tinted purple. The list of songs disappears, and the song's name is displayed below. The Limozeen logo moves onscreen from the top, leaving afterimages. It zooms in as it moves to the bottom of the screen before returning offscreen to the top.}

ANNOUNCER: Taranchula!

{Moving Very Slowly begins playing, with the creeping meat from death metal and the Moving Very Slowly DVD video playing in a square bordered by fire. The song's name is displayed at the bottom of the square. The background is replaced with an orange and black gradient resembling fire.}

ANNOUNCER: And to a lesser extent,—

{Crudely drawn, wiggling outlines of Coach Z and Marzipan fade in, drawn with green and purple respectively. Their names are sloppily written under them, with Marzipan's devolving into scribbles after "marz". The record-spinning background returns.}

ANNOUNCER: {less enthusiastically} —Coach Z and Marzipan.

{Oh Yeah Yeah starts playing. A yellow-bordered rectangle spins in, showing Marzipan playing and singing the song in the Field, next to a chalkboard held up by the cinder block reading "free concert for birds". The song's name is displayed at the bottom. The rectangle changes to a shot of Marzipan's guitar from One Two, One Two, before spinning back out.}

{These Peoples Try to Fade Me starts playing. A green- and pink-bordered rectangle spins in, showing the music video. The song's name is displayed at the bottom. As the announcer speaks, the square shrinks until it disappears.}

ANNOUNCER: All your favorite tracks from the original album are here!

{The song list returns. The Cheat is Not Dead plays, showing footage from caper on the left in a beveled rectangle.}

{The System is Down starts playing. The beveled rectangle transitions through a diamond wipe to footage of The Cheat having a light switch rave from techno.}

{Cut the album art, which is pulled away to reveal more art. That art is pulled away to reveal the vinyl. The instrumental from I Think I Have A Chance With This Guy plays.}

ANNOUNCER: With all new album artwork and splatter vinyl!

{Cut to what appears to be Homestar Runner's living room. Strong Sad holds the vinyl in front of a bookshelf with a record player on it, while Strong Bad looks over the vinyl.}

STRONG BAD: {pointing at the record and turning his head to inspect it} Whoa, it's like the record was made with the splattered blood of Trogdor's enemies.

{Cut to a close-up of Strong Sad.}

STRONG SAD: Uh, technically I think blood would mess up the pressing process, and you'd probably end up—

{Strong Bad steals the vinyl. Cut back to a wide shot.}

STRONG BAD: Press you! Dwaugh!

{Strong Bad jumps and hits Strong Sad in the head with the vinyl. The vinyl is still in one piece.}

STRONG SAD: {falls backward} Whoa!

{The music stops.}

STRONG BAD: Whoa! This hundred-and-whatever-gram vinyl's not messin' around.

{A red burst reading "ACT NOW!" appears as Strong Bad looks towards it, and then at the screen. The Ladies in My Town All Know My Name starts playing.}

ANNOUNCER: Act now, or probably whenever— {"NOW!" changes to "PROBABLY WHENEVER!"}

{Cut to footage of the DJ Teh Cheat Vinyl Slipmat. The shot zooms out as the burst moves to the bottom right corner.}

ANNOUNCER: —and we'll sell you this vinyl slipmat absolutely for an additional price! {another burst reading "Additional Price!!" appears in the upper left corner}

{Footage of the a-side of the album spins in, rotating in all directions before taking up the screen.}

ANNOUNCER: Strong Bad Sings!

{The album art appears in front of the footage, with another copy being added every time a "new" format is mentioned.}

ANNOUNCER: Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits. Available on one 12-inch vinyl, one LP, or one record album.

{Cut to the ordering screen from Strong Bad Sings, with the logo, album art, and ordering information shown.}

ANNOUNCER 2: Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits available on all the stuff that he just said, except the screen has more numbers, and an address. And payment... information.
