We've got the team behind the massively popular epic rap battle series from YouTube here today talking tech just under two years ago. The lattes known is nice, Peter and ethic, Lloyd, Peter Shuku off. Hello and Lloyd outlived. Yeah. That's me. I am Lloyd I'll to debris from the series which featured such battles as JAMES BOND versus pasta powers Steve Jobs versus Bill Gates, and Jim Henson versus danley. Now. They're back. He Lon musk versus Mark Zuckerberg about today. Do correct. Let's find out why they took the long break and what brought them back. Hi, guys. Hi, hello. Where were you? We live around the corner. So we've been here we we just took a break. Yeah. I got married and had had a baby. And that was a that was a whole thing to the process. We we were making the rap bottles for about six years straight. And that that really meant straight that was every day seven days a week three hundred sixty five days a year for the most part was living in this world of creating this series keeping the series growing. And it just came time to take a break. I think in in modern media. I it's expected to be an every day every week every month. New all the time tweets Facebook posts comments likes, and I think in the old days people used to make an album then go away for awhile and then come back with a new album. And so we decided to try that the last battle. We uploaded was seizing five. The last battle was January of twenty six seventeen twenty seventeen. Yeah. Yeah. So January twenty seventeen was the last time, we uploaded. So now, it's what is it right now, December twenty eight. Yeah. Yeah. So so this is about. England, musket, Mark Zuckerberg. And we tried to think about the sort of most iconic images of them for us in the last couple of years in for us Zuckerberg for sure was the Senate hearing. So we thought we would put him at that table with that microphone. So that's where he is in the opening in the opening slate as you can see it here. And then the musk who like he's got a fly. He's got to do something. So we thought it'd be a bomber jacket. It would be fun. So he's in that as well in this battle at some point in time. And which one of you is in which one. Me being the paste year of two Stephanie the Mark Zuckerberg, and I'm on musk who is it. I'll have to say one of the more challenging people to try to imitate he has a very subtle accent in a very sort of subtle way about him. So I played a lot of characters and subtle isn't really my forte. I'm more smashed face. So it was definitely a challenge in Moscow took to beat the cheerfully frustrated all the time. Like, he he's in a good mood. But he's always stretched too thin and always like on, but he's just a positive person with a lot of positive momentum. But it was a different difficult character to find should tell listeners that I'm interviewing two guys with beards. Yes. And they portrayed two guys with clean shaven faces. Yeah. Did you shave for the holiest? This needs favorite part of going to production for the rap ballads is constantly having to shave my face and put like it's especially difficult. We have to wear a fake beard because we have to shave our real beards. So the glue can adhere to our skin. So we can wear a bigger beard. So the worst. Okay. So this is a serious production involves glue. So yeah, that is sometimes the most difficult part, the costumes and the mustache glued inappropriately or inaccurately to your face is maybe the most irritating thing on the planet and to wrap with that in this in your knows that I have nightmares about that. So thankfully, did not have a moustache. Alright. So Elon Musk is going to take on Mark Zuckerberg, of course, and more battles to come twenty nine thousand nine hundred nineteen with Peter and epic Lloyd, correct? All right.
