The second I saw this guy’s amulet or whatever it is, he was the Wizard of Bling to me. There was no other way to go with this clip.
But initially, I wanted it to be about him. I had a half-formed idea about his fading power in the face of his nemesis Prep-Hop. But nothing funny really gelled.
I remembered this “quest” theme I started with Paradox Dragon and continued with Cliché Monster, and took it from there. I watched a couple episodes of Pimp My Ride on MTV.com for the hell of it, too.
