Added DiffLines:

* Steve Jobs interrupting the typical "VERSUS!" introduction is pretty much something the real Steve Jobs did during presentations, all the time. (For instance, when being shown a prototype Segway, they asked that questions be held for the end, to which he snorted and said something like 'yeah, ''that's'' going to happen.")

{{AC: Thomas Jefferson vs. Frederick Douglas}}
* "Founding Absentee Father" becomes especially fitting when you realize the insult is meant ''literally''. Although he is considered one of the founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson wasn't ''even in America'' when the Revolution happened.

* Scrooge asks in his last verse if it's too late to change. The video itself answers that question [[spoiler: with Death's background. He's the Ghost of Christmas Future and his background is a green screen. But there's nothing imposed over it, which means the future isn't determined already - Scrooge isn't too late.]]

* A HarsherInHindsight interpretation of Abe's controversial 'And beat this dummy!' line isn't him telling Clinton he wants her to win, it's him criticizing Clinton's campaign. Her campaign revolved largely around sitting around waiting for Trump to self-destruct, and when that turned out to not matter she was left without an effective counter-plan. She wasn't trying to beat him, she was waiting for him to beat himself, and Abe was mocking her for this.
* Trump begins his verse by claiming to "respect all females" only to immediately insult Clinton and later brag about how he wants to shove his anus into the glass ceiling. Of course he would! Aside from showing Trump's (very flimsy) attempts to convince people he isn't a bigot, it also alludes to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJfH9O0w1WY his inability to be consistent in anything he says]].

* There's a minor case of UncannyValley with the Turtles' suits in "Renaissance Artists vs TMNT" (the mouths articulate, but not the eyes), but as a dig at the upcoming MichaelBay movie, it makes perfect sense.

** 3. [[RealLifeWritesThePlot There simply would not be the budget to enact the special effects neccessary to show off their power]]. Note that the shots are all more dynamic than usual, with a bunch of background characters, including three ships and a cerberus. No way they could do that in real life, with the budget they have.

** 4: There was actually a man in Greek mythology who once dressed up as Zeus and claimed he was the lord of the skies. Zeus fried him AND his whole city with his lightning bolts. Nobody dared pose as Zeus after that.

* King comparing himself to Literature/Cujo seems to be just a part of his pun frenzy with his works until you realize that Poe [[http://www.umm.edu/news-and-events/news-releases/1996/edgar-allan-poe-mystery might have died of rabies]].
