As some of you probably know, I'm a huge PaRappa fan, possibly the biggest on NeoGAF! I can't wait for the third installment. Back when PlayStation All-Stars was coming out in 2012, I decided to do a fan cartoon about him. It was going to be pretty badass, and the only thing that would make it even MORE badass is if I got Dred Foxx, the original voice of PaRappa to do his lines! So I joined the PaRappa Facebook Fan Page to ask him...
Little did I know it would lead to Dred stealing $100 from my friend and I, an attempt to turn the fanbase against me, and an insult-laden tirade where he simply goes bonkers.
Unfortunately the Facebook page where much of the best stuff is located has been made invite-only, but above is a blog where I've detailed all of the main events that have happened in the time since it all began. Honestly I can't do the whole thing justice in a single OP, but here are just a few of the juiciest tidbits:
Please check it out, I hope it is as entertaining for you all to read as it was aggravating for me to deal with.
I'll come with you
My personal favorite is "the devil is a busy liar so I'mma chill before I dump a chicken in the fryer".
"You are a virus that needs antibiotics".
This is hilarious to me for many reasons.
He alters his voice to sound like PaRappa, although if you pitch shift his normal voice you get the same effect.
Did they pitch-shift his voice or does he really sound like Parappa?
Because his posts read a lot more hilarious in Parappa's high-pitched voice.
btw I'd also love to see a new Parappa game. If they did it on PS4 it could look perfect.
What the hell?!
You can't treat a viral infection with antibiotics, fuckface
We asked if he'd do it for free, he said he would charge like $40 so we paid him, then he asked for another $60 because his lawyers said so or something. Basically we were really gullible and dumb because we were star-struck (shameful in hindsight) and thought he was a trustworthy voice actor.
Did you just send him the money and ask, or did you actually ask him if he would do it before sending the money...? :/
I'm really confused.
No white boy could bust such phat rhymes as "Noodles are the best no doubt can't deny/taste better than water but don't ask me why"!
Holy shit... he's black?

>VA says he will do it multiple times, cites 'reasons' for delays
>Months later, no voicework, refund not upheld
>OP asks for money back, VA says FU cause no paper agreement
>Proceeds to post batshit crazy shit towards OP.
