Method Man Raps About Sour Patch Kids Gone Bad


Have you ever wondered what it would look like if Method Man rapped about Sour Patch Kids as CGI candy ran around causing havoc in a nicely appointed kitchen? Of course you haven’t, but, for some reason, it’s happened anyway in a new spot labeled “World Gone Sour (The Lost Kids).” Let’s take a look at some of the lyrics, shall we?

The gist of the song is that the Sour Patch Kids are basically royal dicks. A few things you can expect of them:

  • Crushing all your dreams, cut the strings in your yo-yo
  • Trade your Lamborghini to your Volvo
  • Throw bleach in your laundry then unfold your origami

And, worst of all, “Now they’re on your Facebook deleting all your friends.”

According to Adweek “the spot ties into a forthcoming video game from the brand, in which players will be ‘shrunken down to the size of a Sour Patch Kid and made to battle insane candy and deranged humans on their quest to fulfilling their destiny — being eaten.'”

“Cash Rules Everything Around Me,” indeed.
