These have been around for a while but I’d successfully managed to ignore them until Shadowboy discovered them last week and played a bunch of them at me.

Epic Rap Battles of History pits famous historical and pop culture figures against each other in “rap battle” format. They are deeply surreal, featuring matchups like Hitler vs. Darth Vader, Rasputin vs. Stalin, and Genghis Khan vs. the Easter Bunny.

Here’s Gandalf vs. Dumbledore:

The whole series is available on ERB’s YouTube channel.

    My husband really loves these but I’m kinda “meh” on them. I will say that, in Barack Obama vs Mitt Romney, the Abraham Lincoln line “Of the people, by the people, for the people, EAGLE!” is totally worth it. Actually, the whole concept of Abraham Lincoln weighing in on presidential debates by the power invested in him by this giant bald bird is pretty amazing. But otherwise, it’s just so much yelling. ::shrug::
