... er, SNOT and SNARL would like to do Rap-umentary/music video live on location ... with guest rapper, ahem, Hamlet ... Here goes nothing ... HIT IT!
SNOT: Hey, yo, Hamlet!
SNARL: What's your worry?
HAMLET: My uncle killed my dad and (bleep) my mommy.
SNOT: That is insane!
SNARL: Does it drive you looney?
HAMLET: To the "to", to the "be", "or" to the "not to be".
SNOT: Now, Ophelia, your love!
SNARL: Are you getting some nookie?
HAMLET: The girl's so demure I'd be happy with a hickie.
SNOT: She tried to win your love.
SNARL: But why did you go batty?
HAMLET: I told her to get lost, "get thee to a nunnery".
SNOT: The proof is in the pudding.
SNARL: What did your uncle see?
HAMLET: The Murder of Gonzago, oh, he's so guilty.
SNOT: Polonius tried to eavesdrop.
SNARL: When you chat with your mommy?
HAMLET: He hid behind the curtains, so I slayed his fanny.
SNOT: Your uncle thinks your mad.
SNARL: Did he wanna get rid of thee?
HAMLET: He sent me to England with my two buddies.
SNOT: It's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.
SNARL: Were they bad company?
HAMLET: Sent them to their deaths 'coz they're no good to me.
SNOT: Laertes cannot believe it.
SNARL: 'Coz Ophelia's now crazy?
HAMLET: He blames me for his woes, what a (bleep)ing bully.
SNOT: Ophelia had drowned.
SNARL: Isn't that a pity?
HAMLET: And now Laertes, in fencing, wants to challenge me.
SNOT: So the clown digs a grave
SNARL: And unearthed somebody?
HAMLET: A boner of a skull from the past, a memory.
SNOT: Y-Y-Y-Yorick was his name.
SNARL: How could it possibly?
HAMLET: "... a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy".
SNOT: To the fight! To the fight!
SNARL: What's your strategery?
HAMLET: Ah, er, simple, beat his sorry booty.
SNOT: He struck you first.
SNARL: But why you look woozie?
HAMLET: What a cheater's blade, that poisoned tip is deadly.
SNOT: But you struck harder...
SNARL: Wait, what's wrong with mommy?
HAMLET: She drank the poisoned wine that was intended for me.
SNOT: Slash that sucker!
SNARL: Is that enough for Claudy?
HAMLET: Let him drink his wine for a double whammy.
SNOT: But Hamlet, you are dying.
SNARL: Have you avenged your daddy?
HAMLET: Let Fortinbras be the heir, save Horatio to tell my story.
SNOT: This is the legend.
SNARL: Of a dude who's our homey.
SNOT and SNARL: Yo Hamlet is da man with a grievous tragedy!
SNOT and SNARL and DJ Shifu: PEACE!
The backwall was inspired by the ballroom's arched windows in Kronborg Castle, where Elsinore Castle was based off in Hamlet.
You had a great build, but you know that. Your take on the category, now that was phat! You had me laughing from the start to the end, will you advance to round two, now that will depend. On the votes that you get, they're coming in time. One down and two to go 'cause you got mine! (Sorry excuse for a rap I know, but you got my vote!) ~ Chris.
Well what do you know, for once I didn't fall asleep while being acosted by Shakespearean theater! Beautiful stage you built here and a great way to tell the story even if "Wierd Al" wasn't doin' the rappin' (he's still my favorite master of the silly parody). Good luck with the judges.
I know from experience just how hard, it is to work with the words of the superfly bard, now you rocked the lyrics and your build is dope, it's round 2 for you, at least that's what i hope! Well done Shifu, I wish you good luck, and if they don't like my rhyme i don't give a f..... fraction of my attention ;)
This is so funny! I can see a lot of work went into that badass rapping! Great work on that, I do feel that the build is lacking a little something but I will let the judges be the judge of that. You gave me some good laughs thank you Shifu! I also laughed hard at Nick B's comment :-)
