The video game community never ceases to amaze me with their creativity and today, we’re going to talk about rap created by Twitter user Louie Zong- an artist and musician, @everydaylouie- who uses the voice of the announcer from Pokemon Stadium– Nintendo 64 games were released back in 2000.
This one is a personal nostalgia trip for me as Pokemon Stadium was one of my favorite video games as a child. I would spend hours playing it, to the point where the impressive, over-the-top sound line of the announcer became ingrained in my memory. This video brings back so many memories from my time with the game and I’m sure it will do so with others who played the game religiously back in the day. It also reminds me how ridiculous the announcer is Pokemon Stadium. I’d say he’s a bit intense but that doesn’t feel like a strong enough word. Enthusiastic maybe? No, it’s still not enough. He really likes his job, I think.

Zong’s video creatively and imaginatively combines these few lines of sound to create a short but sweet rap song. The rap comes with a little animation of Poliwhirl and Weepinbell staring at each other as the announcer stands in the background spitting fire. I’d really like the full version of this song if possible. Please, Louie. I’m begging you.
