Of all the fight requests that have been sent my way, this one is the most requested matchup. It makes sense, too, as these guys are basically kindred spirits. In one corner we have Spike Spiegel, former Syndicate hitman and bounty hunter on the spaceship Bebop. Spike’s a slacker with badass martial art skills and a perfect aim. He can also take one hell of a beating. Facing him we have Vash the Stampede, hero of the popular anime Trigun and a badass with a heart of gold. Vash is seemingly immortal and has been declared an act of God by insurance companies for the damage that he inadvertently causes. He is also an absolute pacifist, doing his best not to hurt anyone and preaching the notions of peace and love…the frikkin’ hippie.

Borrowing from the soundtrack of Fight Club, this music video uses the Dust Brothers’ tune “This is your Life” (with narration provided by Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden). It’s combined with clips from Cowboy Bebop. The resulting video is one of the most heart-breakingly cynical things I’ve put together. Click on Ms. Fanservice Faye Valentine to download the video.
It seems that all my Cowboy Bebop videos have to involve slow, sad music. I guess that fits the series in a way. Anyway, this video combines “Blackbird,” a Beatles song performed by Sarah McLachlan, with scenes from Cowboy Bebop.
The song is “Bang Bang (He Shot me Down)” by Nancy Sinatra. The video is from Cowboy Bebop. Apologies about the subtitles, but I tried to make them as unobtrusive as possible.
