Daft Punk Meets Homestar Runner in Random Access Fhqwhgads

If you liked Random Access Memories but thought the only thing it was missing was a whole lot of Strong Bad, you’re in luck. As the A.V. Club points out, YouTube user IAmArique has mashed up nearly every single track from Daft Punk’s 2013 album with Strong Bad’s No. 1 jam, “Everybody to the Limit (Come on Fhqwhgads).” Strong Bad does it funky (“Lose Yourself to Fhqwhgads”), he does it psychedelic (“Contawhgads”), and he does it Italo-disco (“Giorgio by Fhqwhgads”). You get the idea.

It works better than you would think, and—so that you can always have it with you—it’s even available for a free download. For the next mashup, I have only one suggestion: “Harder, Better, Faster, Strong Bad.”
