I love when folks hit me up for the SOLE purpose of sending me foolery. No need to waste time with pleasantries or all’at ish normal people have to deal with. Cut to the foolish chase!
That’s exactly what the homie, Star did. She hit me up on GChat with a link RIGHT off the bat and told me she knew I’d love this video because it did THEE most. She get me.
Now, before I get to the video, I wanna do a prologue, so to speak. The prologue, is actually the YouTube description, but it’s too good NOT to feature on its own. Alas…
“shiiiiiiii, 3rd track off my album. gonna be a hidden track, you gotta listen to the second track all the way through to get to dis one. took a minute to get this one up cuz SOMEONE ON THIS STREET CALLED THE POLICE ON US, AND TO THAT SOME1 (IF YOU WATCHIN THIS VIDEO, WHY YOU HATIN?) EITHER WAY I JUS SAID F IT, WE AINT GET ALL THE SHOTS WE WANTED, BUT WHATEVER, WE STILL GO HARD.
DIS ONE CALLED IMDABES
shout out to Eli”
Huh. Firstly, I love how ol’ dude is like, “EXCLUSIVE ‘SCLUSIVE, THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN GET THE 3RD JOINT IS YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO THIS ONE ALLLLLAWAY THROUGH, IT’S A SECRET EGG!” As if YouTube doesn’t give users the ability to — I don’t know — fast-forward/rewind to a certain point in the video. I gotta respect the fact that he gave us the behind-the-scenes of how this video came to be, tho. Everyone loves a good DVD commentary, so mad props for that, mister. AND, as you can see, he just gave a shout-out to Eli. YES, that Eli. The Eli who has provided the most epic Friday Foolery material to ever be Friday Foolery’d. o_O
How do I know he’s paying homage to THEE Eli Porter? Le duh! The joint is called, “IMDABES.” Sure, he switched it up a bit by subtracting the “mayne”, deleting an extra ‘s’, and making it one word, but we all know who is the OG of being da bess.
Speaking of cutting to the chase, lemme drink my “digress” flavored tea and get to the gettin’:

0:05 – Ya’ll see that animated video ho? What is this, some “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” or “Cool World” (mad points if you know ’bout this here) type ish? Move over Paula Abdul! This guy is DABES at live-action animated fusions! Speaking of… is that his name? IMDABES? *looks at YouTube name* Well, that says “gmcfosho”, so I may go with that. Though, the former IS more fun. Moving on…
0:07 – This is totally giving me bootleg “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” vibes.
0:23 – Oh, he doin’ the “swagswagswagswag” ad libs?! I’m in love already…
0:29 – Whoa now! Who dat? Is this ninja Liu Kang bicycle-kicking across the screen, tho?!! In a chill manner? This mofo like “woopwoopwoopwoopwoopwoop”, Liu Kang-ing in slow motion.
0:41 – Those hands popping out from behind the car! LOL Ok, I can already tell this gonna be one of those super fun videos where if you blink, you miss something.
0:47 – I agree. Standin on a car with a “fenga” in the air is the most accurate manner in which to provide scientific evidence that one is, indeed… DABES.
0:54 – Are “Streetfighter Turnamints” little minty candies sold at novelty stores? One of the flavors could be Raspberry Ryu or somethin’.
0:57 – FREEZE. So, I had to pause here because my ears were telling me one thing (one million dollars) but my eyes were saying another, (ALL OF THE ZEROS). So, I stopped and counted. It’s 11 zeros up in that 1 million. Aiight.
1:06 – Homie said he got the “hyest” score in the world on his SAT (which is allegedly 1600, right?), but then said he went to “Evrest.” Wow. Way to stay humble, ninja.
1:13 – LMAO. Dude was like, lemme stop playin’, a billion sounds nice but I’m just gone make up this bigger number because I’m the what? BEST.
1:19 – Power Rangers shout-out!! *Black Ranger Body Roll* Though, I do wonder what TV station he was watchin’ “Powa Rainjas” on. Oooh, Kenan & Kel! *nostalgia-gasm*
1:32 – SERIOUSLY wondering what his sudden dire need for a lightsaber is, tho.
1:37 – It seems to be just for swag purposes, but ya never know, a buffalo may pop outta nowhere or something. Hell, Drake did it when he was taking care of you.
1:41 – YESSSSSS, pyro!
1:45 – Ruh roh… those opening doors. This some Hitchcockian suspense right’chere.
1:54 – I… can’t… add anything to this.
2:00 – Yo, is that Weird Al Yankovic over there on the right???
2:01 – Ya’ll, his car move when he ain’t driving it. Either he in a automatic car wash with his joint on “neutral” or he’s the Black Chuck Norris. You decide.
2:07 – AW SNAP! The Liu Kang ninja back, but he on fire!! Too much pyro! THIS is the time to use the lightsaber. Not sure how it’ll put out a fire, but everything that has managed to happen so far leads me to believe anything is possible.
2:12 – “Teabaggin ya’ll. Liptons. On da rocs.” Lawd, Jay-Z WISH he came up with that, I bet. Missed opportunities.
2:19 – Hol’ up. So, when the baby wasn’t his, he threw ol’ girl on a MINE?! Um, where is this Maury episode? Eff seeing dudes doing various hot dances in celebration, that’s old news. Is there a Director’s Cut Maury DVD or something? Ya’ll gotta let me know this stuff.
2:23 – Lawd, this dude just Oliver Twist’d that po’ chile and he still talmbout how he the best. Prolly BECAUSE of it. Just evil.
2:25 – Chekm8, tho. *flings self off chair* … *gets up* I’m mad he felt the need to say he was playing chess (minus one ‘s’… this dude is double-s racist, obviously). Dude. You got the best SAT score in the world, but you ain’t gotta be condescending. Give us lowly “non-best” SAT scorers some credit here. Hmph.
2:31 – Wait. Wayment. Way-thehell-ment. Again with my ears and eyes having beef. I HEARD “arthritis.” YA’LL heard, “arthritis.” But, WHAT do my eyes present to me?? Motherlovin’, “ARASEDDFASDFIS.” I Shan’t! Ok, I keep joking that my squinty eyes give me limited vision, but I totally believe it now. Because this can’t be true life.
2:42 – o__________O
2:54 – See! I ain’t eeeem notice the moment where he got that random bottle of wine. SWAG on, sir!
2:59 – Oh, he must be pouring it out for that flaming Liu Kang ninja that he REFUSED to attempt to save. R.I.P. Flaming Kang.
3:04 – This fight going on in the foreground, tho. SMH
3:14 – *actually puts fengas in the sky since I’m aware of my “besssss” status*
3:20 – Wayment. How you gone uplift us then shoot us down by telling us to acknowledge that YOU the best, now? :-/
3:21 – Aw, hell now the animated video ho is on fire, too. This “Catching Fire” arse video.
3:28 – He said it!! He said, “I deed it.” HOMAGE, paid in full, bishessssss.
3:34 – He put on that crown to make it official.
3:38 – Shout-out to that sun with the shades up there with that bawse bass in its voice, too.
3:45 – *final and epic finger in the air*
And apparently (from looking at the “related videos” screenshots) this dude has LOADS of other videos doing all kinds of random mess. I see who gonna be making frequent appearances here. *whistles*
Pinchers, do you think he da bessssssss? Are YOU da bessssss? Am I da besssssss? Also, fill free to shout-out any little moments I didn’t mention above. I need a reason to watch this over and over in search for something new. It’s one of those.
Have a foolishly patriotic Memorial Day weekend!
Love ya like Eddie Murphy apparently loves to randomly smang Rocsi,
