About

Droppin’ Around in a Fancy Car is a YTPMV fad derived from the Donkey Kong Country animated series episode “Hooray for Holly-Kongo Bongo”, which aired in North America on January 7th, 2000.[1]

Origin

The video revolves around a particular part of the aforementioned episode in which Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong and Cranky Kong sing a song entitled “I’m Gonna Be a Star”. A section of the song involves Donkey Kong singing “We’ll be driving around in a fancy car!” whilst being propelled through the air.



On June 20th, 2011, YouTube user IAMGOOMBA created a short music video entitled Wiz Khalifa – Droppin’ Around in a Fancy Car, which mixes some of the lyrics of the song with the music of American rapper Wiz Khalifa’s Black and Yellow, which was released on September 14th, 2010. As of April 21st, 2014, the video has amassed over 48,000 views and over 950 likes.



Spread

On August 17th, 2011, YouTube user ThemOldaBoys uploaded a very short video entitled “Burn Marks” (also known as “Howdy Mrs. K”, based on a quote included in the video), which had a section of the original video’s audio contribute to it. As of April 21st, 2014, the video has amassed over 250,000 views and over 4,000 likes. According to comments that have been made on the video, its considerable popularity growth was due to it being regularly reblogged on Tumblr. However, concrete evidence of this has yet to be found.



On June 14th, 2013, YouTube user EmperorLemon uploaded a video entitled “The Krusty Krustacean’s Kantankerous Kommercial”, which includes a link to a different version of the original video as part of a joke (around the 5:40 mark). This different version, entitled “Droppin’ Around in a Fancy Sponge”, uses clips from the television series SpongeBob SquarePants in place of clips from the Donkey Kong Country episode. It is currently on EmperorLemon’s alternate account, EmperorLime, and is otherwise inaccessible.
As of April 21st, 2014, the video has amassed over 450,000 views and over 4,000 likes, while Droppin’ Around in a Fancy Sponge has amassed over 23,000 views and over 150 likes.



On September 10th, 2013, YouTube user TehShadzify uploaded a feature-length music video entitled “Droppin’ Around in Green and Purple”, which contains a collaboration of the original video and animation from Team Fortress 2. As of April 21st, 2014, the video has amassed over 7,000 views and over 240 likes.
