While playing his sponsor’s game Genshin Impact on an antiquated Windows PC, Buttered Side Down’s computer flakes out thanks to the dreaded Banana Virus.

A while back, Buttered Side Down acquired a handful of useful super powers. Now, like most superhero franchises, he’s back with a sequel whether we wanted it or not.

Now that Buttered Side Down has figured out how to perform magic and play the violin, he’s worked up quite the appetite. To satisfy his hunger, he set about making a pizza in the only way he knows how – with a GoPro strapped to his head. We’ll have to try that pepperoni trick sometime.
