X Interviews, also known as “Wrestler Interview Series” (Japanese: レスラー会見, Resurah Kaiken) in Japan, refer to a series of video spoofs of the minigame “Ringside” from Rhythm Heaven Fever produced by Nintendo as the third installment in the Rhythm Heaven series.
Rhythm Heaven Fever was fisrt relased to Japanese Wii console on July 21st, 2011. Soon after this, many playing videos of its minigames started to be posted by users to both YouTube and Nico Nico Douga (NND). Among those videos, “Ringside” which is one of the minigames involving a wrestler being interviewed, where the player must nod their head in agreement, flex their muscles, or pose for the fans got the best attention because of its macho and ridiculous rendition.
NND users soon set this video into a subject for parodies as usual. One of the earliest instances in this parody video series was uploaded to NND on August 30th, which featured Richardo Milos, a Brazillian dancer famous in other musical remix memes like X Danced Like a Butterfly from the Billy Herrington’s Wrestling / Gachimuchi series.
Meanwhile, this parody video series first got attention among YouTubers by a video featuring Heavy and Pyro from Team Fortress 2, which was uploaded by Dakkpasserida on November 27th, 2011.
