In 2011, a battle of giants was begun. Rafael “Red” Matsunaga and Drew Tetz decided to have a 5A trick video battle. Simple enough premise: each would submit a video, and then the public would vote on their favorite. The winner would claim total dominion over the entire planet and enact a millennium of darkness, the loser would have to wear a t-shirt that said “I suck”. Pretty typical stakes for a yoyo trick battle.
The videos were completed and posted:
Then came a twist that no one could have forseen: the online service they used to set up the voting poll went out of business, and all votes were lost. The last time the votes were visible, the players were tied and so the greatest non-grudge match of the modern era came to a crashing halt with all involved scratching their heads and saying “So, uh, congratulations, I guess?”
For the sake of closure, and because I love to see someone lose, let’s open voting again. Who won this 6-year old trick battle? Cast your vote below!
