I know explaining a joke kills it, but what song is being "covered" here (http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=250)?

you sure it's not the MGS3 theme song?

Are there words to that?
I thought it was instrumental, but then I only played MGS and MGS2.

it's got lyrics.

I'm not 100%sure it a parody of it though

Snake Eater is the name of the song

Not sure if it's the theme for MGS, but those are the lyrics and that's the name.

Here you have it:

Sounds like a James Bond spoof.

I think that's kinda the basic thought behind it

That cartoon is awesome.

The song is Snake Eater, the main theme from MGS3: Snake Eater.
It is played twice in the game:
- After finishing the Virtuous Mission, it is unlocked as the intro for the game.
- When Snake climbs a really long ladder (after killing The End, IIRC leading to the mountains before Grozynj Grad) the song is also played: which is the scene depicted in the cartoon.

Really nice find.

Really nice find.
VGCats are always good for a laugh. :)
Too bad the updates aren't all that regular.

ah, I love this song.

The reason behind it being a 'bond spoof' is each game is inspired by a particular film series, MGS3 being bond
