Rap Battle Gone Bad Translated


Rap Battle Gone Bad Translated is a video on Break.com that is all kinds of wrong and sad. Basically, it's a rap battle that ends in a fist fight... but translated into a college kid's idea of jazz-age proper white-person speech. Check it out.

all kinds of wrong = all kinds of funny. speaking as a professor i would a kind of genius. It contains many of the elements that Aristotle talks about in his theory of tragedy that are equally relevant in this elemental comic performance:
pathos (suffering)
peripeteia (reversal)
anagnorisis (recognition)
hamartia (error)
catharsis (purging or cleansing of the situation)

it is, in essence, the dog's bollocks
