Verse 1:

Wow, your raps are just too wack to handle!

Let's do it like we do on the Discovery Channel.

Your science is preposterous; the opposite of competent process,

And in this episode, we'll give you a synopsis,

Starting with the vacuum cleaners strapped up on your back!

It's a fact: positrons don't react like that!

You built a laser grid with no safety switch,

And Walter Peck was right: that's some shady shit!

Good thing you work in a firehouse, 'cause you just got burned.

You are poor scientists, and that's confirmed.

Verse 2:

Ghosts aren't real, but it should be said.

It's time to bring the B-Team back from the dead.

Hey! Things are getting scary when Tory, Grant, and Kari

Come harder than Ray when that ghost popped his cherry!

We reject your flows and substitute our own!


Why'd you stop? I couldn't think of a rhyme.

Well, just say the first thing that pops into your mind!

During the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man's verse:

Show these dweebs how to rock a beret! (Hey.)


  • Hyneman is the first character portrayed by Nice Peter to appear in a season trailer.
  • In the trailer, he was shorter than Adam Savage like he is in real life. However, in the battle itself, he is taller than Savage, as Peter is taller than EpicLLOYD, who played Savage.
  • The real Jamie Hyneman retweeted Adam Savage's reaction to the battle.
    • This makes him the eleventh person known to have seen their battle.
