Another Auction vid? Well, I stepped in to do a pinch hit for Voleuse and I'm so glad I did. Becca and I were discussing the awesomeness of the Bei Fongs and I suggested this song and... yeah. Major thanks have to go to BigBigTruck as this obviously riffs quite heavily on her classic AMV.

For those of you who don't know the shows, the little girl is blind and is the canonical mother of the 50-something woman who is a police officer. Oh, and they are earth and metal benders. Just watch the shows already.

Spoilers for both shows, esp Korra

Mama Said Knock You Out by AbsoluteDestiny

Lyrics:

C'mon man

And with the local DBT news, LL Cool J with a triumphant comeback
[...]
but tonite...

Don't call it a comeback
I been here for years
Rockin my peers and puttin suckas in fear
Makin the tears rain down like a MON-soon
Listen to the bass go BOOM
Explosion, overpowerin
Over the competition, I'm towerin
Wreckin shop, when I drop these lyrics that'll make you call the cops
Don't you dare stare, you betta move
Don't ever compare
Me to the rest that'll all get sliced and diced
Competition's payin the price

I'm gonna knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
Mama said knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
I'm gonna knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
Mama said knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
I'm gonna knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
Mama said knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
I'm gonna knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
Mama said knock you out (HUUUH!!!)

Don't u call this a regular jam
I'm gonna rock this land
I'm gonna take this itty bitty world by storm
And I'm just gettin warm
Just like Muhummad Ali they called him Cassius
Watch me bash this beat like a skull
Cuz u know I had beef wit
Why do u riff with me, the maniac psycho
And when I pull out my jammy get ready cuz it might go
BLAAAAW, how ya like me now?
The river will not allow
U to get with, Mr. Smith, dont riff
Listen to my gear shift
I'm blastin, outlastin
Kinda like Shaft, so u could say I'm shaftin
Old English filled my mind
And I came up with a funky rhyme

I'm gonna knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
Mama said knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
I'm gonna knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
Mama said knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
I'm gonna knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
Mama said knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
I'm gonna knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
Mama said knock you out (HUUUH!!!)

Breakdown!!!

Shotgun blasts are heard
When I rip and kill, at WILL
The man of the hour, tower of power, I'll devour
I'm gonna tie you up and let you understand
that I'm not your average man
when I got a jammy in my hand
DAAAAAM!!!!! Oooooohh!!
Listen to the way I slaaaaay, your crew
Damage (UHH) damage (UHH) damage (UHH) damage
Destruction, terror, and mayhem
Pass me a sissy so suckas I'll slay him
Farmers (What!!!) Farmers (What!!!)
I'm ready (we're ready!!!)
I think I'm gonna bomb a town (get down!!)
Don't u neva, eva, pull my lever
Cuz I explode
And my nine is easy to load
I gotta thank God
Cuz he gave me the strength to rock
HARD!! knock you out, mama said knock you out

I'm gonna knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
Mama said knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
I'm gonna knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
Mama said knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
I'm gonna knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
Mama said knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
I'm gonna knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
Mama said knock you out (HUUUH!!!)

Saw this by way of a link over at Voleuse's, and had to comment to say that this is amazing. Love the use of transition between scenes from Toph to Lin and back again, and love the way you've matched the sharp movements in animation to the key beats of the song. Thanks for creating and sharing it!

Basically, yes. Love the musicality and movement with all the little sounds in the song, the fun lyrics matches (funky rhyme! her nine is easy to load!), and the visual parallels/connections back and forth between Toph and Lin. Tons of fun and badassery. BEI FONGS.

Oh my gaaaaaawd, this is fucking brilliant. Okay, first of all, just the fact that there is a Bei Fongs vid to "Mama Said Knock You Out" delights me to no end; there will never be a better use of this song. Never ever. Secondly, this is so damn earthbender-y. I love the relentless rhythm of it and I felt every explosion and thud of rock against flesh in my BONES.

SO GOOD.
