Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
The Epic Rap Battles of History YouTube Channel (Warning: Not safe for work due to language!) has had quite a few incredible fictitious match-ups over the years, including Batman vs. Sherlock Holmes, Doc Brown vs. Doctor Who and Master Chief vs. Leonidas (all also NSFW). However, it’s likely none comes close to the most recent production: a rap battle between The Walking Dead‘s Rick Grimes and Breaking Bad‘s Walter White.
ERB creators Epic Peter and Nice Lloyd’s take on the characters is pitch-perfect and chock-full of references for die-hard fans of both properties. Devotees of The Walking Dead will especially appreciate Rick starting off each of his verses with a warning to Carl to “stay back,” while fans of Heisenberg will get a kick out of the references to breakfast and Walter’s “Walter Whities.”
As noted before, the video’s not exactly safe for work, so watch with caution.
