this had to happen is a Season 2016 video released December 23, 2016. This video is a skit that announces Food Battle 2016.

Synopsis Edit

Ian and Anthony receive a mysterious gift. On the box is a sign that reads, "What you forgot is inside." When opened, it revealed a pink frosted sprinkled donut and a letter written with cutout letters from magazine headlines reading: "There's one thing you two are forgetting to do this year. And that thing is for you two to.."

The message is incomplete, but Ian finds letters in the box that he states have fallen off the page. The pieces of paper, which should spell "Do food battle," are arranged in different ways by Ian and Anthony, both believing the message is telling them to "do da left boot." They do the "left boot dance," but still feel like they are forgetting something, and consider giving up.

Their attention is then caught by a food vendor (Food Battle News Reporter) who is selling Anthony's past favorite foods: taquitos, celery, churros, burritos, red hot chili peppers, rainbow lollipops, egg rolls, giant gummy snakes, rock candy and chocolate-coated bananas. The cost is only 50 cents. Anthony buys the food.

Ian and Anthony then have a revelation:

  • Anthony's change was 50 cents
  • 50 Cent is a rap singer who had a hit own song called In Da Club
  • Club are places where people go to party
  • On one of Ian's birthdays, his mother did not give him a gift and all his friends laughed at him.
  • Friends is an NBC sitcom that aired 10 seasons
  • 10 seasons is equivalent to the number of times they have done Food Battle
    • This conclusion is only fully realized with the assistance of the reporter, Anthony believing he is being told he needs to watch the rest of Friends.

Trivia/GoofsEdit

  • Anthony is given 50 cents of change for purchasing one of all his past favorite foods. However, there are 10 foods for sale and Anthony paid $5.00 for the food, so he should not have received ANY change. It's likely that this mistake was made on purpose so that the 50 cents would trigger the chain reaction of memories among Anthony and Ian.
