He says "Krusty Krab is unfair. Mr. Krabs is in there, standing at the concession plotting his oppression!"


The earliest available remix was published on December 20th, 2014 by YouTuber hnmv (shown below). The post "Krusty Krab is Unfair!~ Sparta Remix EXTENDED" received more than 17,000 views in five years; however, it's likely that videos predate it on the short form video application Vine.
