Reddit’s r/Place: The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny

As a new force emerged Its objective was simple:
That all colors be purged These users spread darkness
They called it “The Void” They were no fun at all
And everyone was annoyed. No symbol was spared
By these griefers and trolls As all art was subsumed
By indifferent black holes The lurkers all asked
Is this the end of r/Place? The answer was No,

Lucio Trogdor, Yoshi, Jebediah, Ski Free Polandball, Portugal, BabyMetal, Destiny Judy, Nick, Tiny Rick, Bowie, Linux, Dr. Ten Hobbes, Ross, Tom, Scott, Master Chief, Kekkonen All came out of nowhere lightning fast, And kicked the Void in its edgelord ass The moral of the story is when all is said
and done Finding ways to work together is just more
fun! The whole thing lasted 6 dozen hours I don’t know what we made, but I know that it’s ours So what was the point? Who really won r/Place? It was the Reddit corporation selling advertising
space Using the quantified engagement of their active
user base It’s April Fools on Reddit r/Place is the place to be Life isn’t me versus you It’s us both against entropy And everybody can thrive If we pursue harmony This is the ultimate showdown!

  1. the way rainbow road interacted with everone else's art uniquely and was careful to respect the people who didn't want their art destroyed

    it brings a tear to my eye

  2. Void may have been trying to consume everything, but they made it look badass as hell. Props to them for not just making giant black squares.
    edit: i just realized I basically copied another comment

  3. Rainbow dash’s survival was a colossal failure for the gamers, but if it returns, we will come back, cut into the heart of the cringe infestation, draw sans with joe Swanson’s face, and erase any furry, brony or weeb who dare to stand in our way

    I have no life

  5. Absolutely love this video. Thank you for modernising one of my favourite internet videos from my childhood, and to such a masterful standard 🙂

  6. Im singing this song for my talent show next year IT MAY BE SHORT BUT WHO CARES I WAS A PART OF R/PLACE FOR A SHORT TIME BUT IDC THIS IS THE SONG IM SINGING FOR NEXT YEARS SCHOOL TALENT SHOW

  7. i'm crying, ultimate showndown is the best song i have ever heard and seeing it being mixed with r/place just makes me even happier

  8. suspicious intent
    SMG4 reference?
    i mean
    ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    it may not but
    ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    Same tune, beat, rhythm
    ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  9. I'm gonna draw every frame after 1 second from the frame I drew starting from the blank canvas
    Edit: I'm too lazy I mostly moved on from different frames and colored some parts of it

  10. Can we talk about the fact that even sped up the void looks like it’s legit consuming things that would naturally be higher (Rainbow Road)

  11. Idk why but the end almost teared me up especially when then feeling that u missed this story to be a part of it must really hit hard..

  12. 0:49 i see that lil Cirno
    3:26 Yay Osu! is here- oh…she left, wait shes back!
    3:32 i see more TouHou! and then some nice PolandBall

  13. If they made a second version I could imagine getting tons of people together and making one huge thing, ruling everyone XD

  14. The thing that makes me sad is that the bronies survived the void, and the terraria guide and peashooter died from the void
