J.U.A.N.: The Punch Out Rap!

In celebration of the release of the pumped up remake of one of the most iconic video games of all time, Punch Out (for the Nintendo Wii,) on this edition of Jerks Up All Night, we are featuring this video from, which appears to be a group of guys getting together, dressing up as the Punch out characters, and producing a Punch Out Rap! Yep, Glass Joe, Von Kaiser, Bald Bull, Great Tiger, King Hippo, and more, they're all here, and they're all rapping, you just can't go wrong with that. Really when you have guys dressing up in these Punch Out gimmicks and then rapping, you really see how all these guys are much more like pro wrestling characters, complete with racial and ethnic stereotypes. And again, just like wrestling, you get all these characters together to sing in unison, then you know the endings going to end up in a knock down drag out...good times! It's just too bad Mike Tyson couldn't be brought back to the franchise, as it sure was fun to get through all these racial stereotype characters back in the day, only to get destroyed by Iron Mike...the biggest asshole on the game, who just smiled away as he killed you time after time. So for all of you who are up late partying with the new Wii Punch Out, I invite you to check out the video to really get the old school vibe going as you enjoy the new game.
