  • Dethklok enters the world of fashion and do battle with weight and eating disorders.

    This episode hooked me and is the best of all of Metalocalypse. Emperor (Ihsahn, Trym and Samoth) do voiceover work as the demoniac fashion designer and his two minions and they ham it up enjoyably, especially Ihsahn. The skit about "food shaped like a dick" and how they carry that through the episode is hilarious, as is the grocery store scene where Toki and Skwisgaar are telling the band about "carcomigrates" and Murderface hammers out a diet plan for them to follow. Even after watching all of the other Metalocalypse episodes, this one is still my favourite (although Emperor's presence is a big help).moreless
  • Dethklok enters the world of fashion . Hilarity ensues.

    Starting with a diasterious fashion show involving rampaging polar bears and elecrtic eels, Dethklok announces that they will be starting their own clothing line. The idea of Dethklok getting involved in the fashion industry is hilarious by itself, but on top of that, they discover that they are too fat for their new line of clothes and they need to go on a diet as well. The best part is watching them stand around in the "food library" discussing their diet plans. I also loved their secret meet 'n' eat in the closet. This episode is the one that first got me hooked on this show so it is one of my personal favorites.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Second appearance of the supermarket known as Fintrolls, which the band first went shopping for groceries at during the pilot episode, "The Curse of Dethklok".

    • On adult swim video, Murderface can clearly be heard saying "shit" and it is not censored, yet it is censored in the aired version.

    • Dethklok didn't flinch as an oil rig of people was incinerated, didn't move while their guards shot their fans, and told their chef (while he was in pieces) to make them some food. Why would they scream when they see their designer skinning people alive?

      Edit: Probably because they thought they were wearing leather, but it was actually human skin.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Nathan Explosion: Toki, Skwisgaar, you did some online food research. Let's hear it.
      Skwisgaar Skwigelf: Ok, everyone says on this page that we gots to cuts out thems "carcobadrates".
      Toki Wartooth: Yeah, no more of thems "carbokigrates".
      Nathan Explosion: What are "carcomimrates".
      Skwisgaar Skwigelf: Oh, you know, like the "pisgetti".
      Toki Wartooth: Breads.
      Skwisgaar Skwigelf: Paper towels.
      Toki Wartooth: Kleenex and that.

    • Skwisgaar: Alright, alright, popscoggles we can have.
      Toki: Alright, popsicles!
      Nathan: Okay, so let me get this straight, one really big meal a day, then we go to sleep, no paper towels but a little bit of bread because we're not Nazis and as many popsicles as we want.

    • Von Wiechlinghammer: Oh, dear. Look at all of you. You're much heavier than I was led to believe you were. You didn't lie on your measurement charts did you?
      Murderface: What? How dare you!
      Nathan: I am appalled that you would say such a thing, but yeah, we probably lied.

    • Doctor: Popsicles are just pure sugar.
      Skwisgaar: So?! Theys pures great!

    • Murderface: Even though we are entering the world of fashion, I want to assure you all - I am not gay.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Manowar

      The Dethklok album cover that features bulked up versions of the band (except Toki) wearing little clothing is an obvious nod to Manowar's style of album covers.
