We're honored to be first to present the video for MC Frontalot's Critical Hit, starring Brian Posehn alongside the nerdcore rapper. The track's from Frontalot's latest album, Solved, which is available from iTunes and Amazon for less than a tenner. You can download the single and read the lyrics at the official website.

Critical Hit's video is the first of four, funded by Kickstarter campaigns from earlier this year. You can see MC Frontalot in person later this fall, as he's on tour in the southern and eastern US from Oct 21-Nov 13. [Video Link]

    Posehn in a Frontalot video? Thank you, geek gods, thank you.

  2. Blaine says:

    MC Frontalot is not installed… ?

  3. benanov says:

    Can you please provide an .OGV or a .WEBM fallback for those of us using Firefox?

  4. The director might be able to do so — best bet would be to message at Vimeo.

  5.  I really like the font and design of the “Grammys and Groupies” module  captured the styling of early ’80’s AD&D products.

    And what could be more Nerdcore than playing original (don’t give me this “edition” crap) than playing AD&D in this day and age? I bet some people really do it, though.

    I demand more Frontalot/ytcracker collaborations! That one a while back was not enough.

    BB Exclusive !

    I was just able to embed, I think it’s cool now.

  9. sstair says:

    I really love this video, and not just because I’m a contributor. It really catches Front’s sense of humor.

  10. Ryan Griffin says:

    Wait..he never rolled to CONFIRM the crits. WTF.

      MC Frontalot is no third-edition fool.  
      When he hits a nat 20, that’s a crit, it’s old school.

  11. Leafworth says:

    Awesome. Love the vintage D&D fonts and artwork tributes on the modules. I had to pause so I could read his equipment list when he crossed off the Potion of Charisma (+10). Hilarious!

  12. Crashproof says:

    It’s not bad, but “First World Problem” and “It Is Pitch Dark” and “Bizarro Genius Baby” are all better…

  13. Mister44 says:

    Pretty good, I just have to give it negative marks on the use of auto-tune alone.

  14. pdffs says:

    One more repetition of that auto-tune hook and I was going to murder someone.

  15. Garnett Schuyler says:

    I want to like this but he’s just so bad at rapping.


    I wanted to like it.  I really did.

  17. John Farrier says:

    That was excellent, especially the VH1 bit.

  18. Ryan Griffin says:

    ok…I call foul on this whole “AD&D is the best blah blah”…been playing since the 1978 blue box version, and 3.5 was hands down the pinnacle of the D&D universe. Thanks to Pathfinder, we can ignore all this silly 4.0 “We Want Your Money” version stuff. Yes, AD&D was great at the time, but so was Pong.
