So due to boredom and constantly seeing the arrow to the knee poster image on the front page of GameSkinny, I decided to let my creativity take over. I’ve been toying around with this idea for about a month now since the Bastion Phase of the internship program. For some reason Afroman’s “Because I Got High kept popping up in my head every time I tried to make a parody with an arrow to the knee. So the following is what I came up with.

An Arrow to the Knee

It’s like I can’t win for nothin man
Reroll your character oooh oooh oooh

La da da da da da la da daaa
La da da da la da da da da la da da daa

I was gonna play a game but then I died
Had the whole day free to play but then I died
Now my time is wasted and I know why yea heyy
because I took an arrow straight to the knee

La da da da da da da da da

I was gonna beat this boss but then I died
I had my arrow notched but then I died
The boss smacked my face so haard yea heyy
So I shot that arrow straight into my knee

La da da da da da da da da

I was gonna lead the raid but then I died
I lost my guild promotion because I died
They let than new kid in why oh why?! Yea heyy
He shot an arrow straight into my knee

La da da da da da da da da

I’ve stopped running with archers because I died
Stopped talking to them online because I died
Now they all hate me and I know why yea heyy
So they shot several arrows into my knee

La da da da da da da da da

Now I’m dressed in white because I died
Got my arms strapped up real tight because I died
I’m trapped in this padded room and then I died yea heyy
Because I still got an arrow in my knee

La da da da da da da da da

I woke up screaming in bed because I died
A nightmare so horrendous that I died
I looked down at my legs I wasn’t dreaming oh no
I had an arrow stuck into both my knees

La da da da da da da da da

 I’ve quit playing all these games because I died
I threw out all my consoles because I died
Now my life’s so boring and I know why yea heyy
Because I died to an arrow in the knee

 La da da da da da da da da

 They’re putting me in my grave because I died
I cut off both my legs so then I died
I couldn’t take it not one more time no no
I couldn’t take another arrow to the knee

 La da da da da da da da da
