  • Oh my jeebus, this is awesome.

    In this episode, we are introduced to the members of the band, Dethklok. We learn that Skwisgaar Skwigelf is taller than a tree and also the lead guitarist of Dethklok. Toki Wartooth is not a bumble-bee, but he is the rhythm guitarist. William Murderface, Murderface, Murderface is the bassist. Pickles is the drummer, doodily-doo, ding-dong, doodily-doodily-doo. And Nathan the lead singer.

    The show opens up with Dethklok singing a Duncan Hills Coffee Jingle, known as Dethjingle to some, and their employees pouring hot coffee and cream on the audience. One of the employees sets off fireworks, which somehow find Dethklok's chef, Jean-Pierre, and make him get shredded up in the helicopter's blades. Jean-Pierre is still alive, but not well enough to cook for Dethklok, forcing them to try to cook their own food.

    The scene with them at the grocery store, or foods libraries, is hilarious. Apparently, Dethklok has never been in a grocery store. Nathan breaks the glass at the meat counter to get a sausage, while Murderface insults old ladies and asks if olives are in lemon tarts. Skwisgaar and Toki tease each other by throwing tampons in each other's carts. Pickles obviously likes booze enough to buy a whole shopping cart full of it and try to put it in soup.

    After the grocery store incident, the band decided to sew up Jean-Pierre. Toki claimed that they would screw up and sew him back together wrong, which is the name of the song playing at the end. Jean-Pierre did get sewn back together wrong. Some parts of him are in the wrong place while others are inside out. He is still well enough to cook for Dethklok.
