It was released on atom.com on October 4th, 2010, released on Newgrounds on August 19th, 2011, and released on YouTube on October 2nd, 2011.


The episode starts off with Noogai3 opening up The Chosen One as a pop-up blocker while Noogai3 searches through Google. The Chosen One manages to open up a Stick Figure Slavery website where he would be free, but Noogai3 stops his chances. However before Noogai3 could remove The Chosen One, a popup appeared. The Chosen One manages to go to the popup but Noogai3 right-clicks him and clicks Start Blocking Pop-up until the popup is obliterated. The stickman manages to grab Noogai3's cursor and releases himself by clicking Release Pop-up Blocker, wrecking the Browser to Noogai3's desktop and essay (file:requiredessay) in Microsoft Word. While The Chosen One destroys Noogai3's essay, Clippit asks Noogai3 if he wants help killing the Chosen One. Noogai3 tries to get Clippit to kill The Chosen One. Wanting to get rid of The Chosen One faster, Noogai3 draws and sets a red stick figure named The Dark Lord (early named The Chosen One's enemy) to kill The Chosen One. However, when noogai3 commands him to destroy the Chosen One, it sets right on its goal of killing The Chosen One. One he is moved to the word document, the Dark Lord sees the Chosen One wrapping Clippit and kicking it away, defeating him. Immediately, The Dark Lord stomps on the ground and the menus rise and they hit The Chosen One. The Dark Lord uses his power to almost kill The Chosen One but he fights back. Before they went to the desktop, they fight around the essay (Microsoft Word) and The Chosen One grabs the mouse and throws it to the minimize button while The Dark Lord throw the font menu. They went to the Desktop. They Fight in Solitaire by throwing and destroying cards and Noogai3 reset the game by Clicking the Deal. The Dark Lord punched The Chosen One. Noogai3 was angry that the stick figures were ruining his playing time, so he dropped the Chosen One on top of the window, and gently placed The Dark Lord. The two fight out and The Dark Lord manages to get desktop icons to help him destroy The Chosen One while Noogai3 plays Solitaire. The Chosen One manages to kill most of the icons by throwingOrbit and Windows Movie Maker, Hitting Google Chrome with WMM , and Destroying iTunes' Disk. Yahoo! Messenger bites The Chosen One's arm, VLC media player covers The Chosen One's Face, Internet Explorer bites The Chosen One's other arm, the music note of iTunes wrap The Chosen One's Legs and Skype boxes The Chosen One. The Chosen One hits Skype, Removes Yahoo! and IE7/8, Throws the music note of iTunes away with his legs, put VLC to the Dark Lord and sends The Dark Lord and VLC into Minesweeper. While The Dark Lord tries to get out by solving it (If you didn't click a tile with mines, You Win), The Chosen One played ball with Yahoo! Messenger and IE and Skype tried to save Yahoo! but The Chosen One threw it into the Recycle Bin. AIM grabbed the brush, colored pencil and pen and used them as weapons against The Chosen One and Firefox went to Paint text and the holder fell (didn't smash). The Chosen One uses the pen as a weapon and Firefox destroyed it. The duo of AIM and FireFox tried to stop The Chosen One but he dodged and Firefox tackled AIM. Skype smashed the holder to the Chosen One and The Chosen One jumps into Downloads with a jump sound (a sound from Super Mario Bros.), teleported to My Videos, while the icons were looking at the downloads folder. He climbed out of the My Videos folder, and Kicked Firefox, Skype and IE off the side from behind. AIM tossed the brush and colored pencil at The Chosen One. They Fight and The Chosen One threw the Colored Pencil to the Minesweeper while the Dark Lord is solving it. The Chosen One still fights AIM one on one and threw him to the Minesweeper. Firefox tried to stop The Chosen One but The Chosen One avoids it and jumps on Firefox. The Chosen One throws Firefox on a Minesweeper mine which kills it, AIM, and the Face (note:If you click the tile that has mines will kill the face and you lose) and almost kills The Dark Lord. The Dark Lord surrendered and The Chosen One threw the brush away and pointed to Noogai3, who was still playing Solitaire. The Chosen One manages to get The Dark Lord to team up with him to destroy Noogai3's computer. They destroy first the program of Solitaire, Minesweeper. Noogai3 tries to click the Turn Off Computer but The Dark Lord and The Chosen One destroyed the Start Menu. They continued destroying the program and swirl to get the icons (including Yahoo!) and Smashed Programs with cards of Solitaire to the vortex but Noogai3 kept the My Computer getting sucked into the vortex. They finish Swirling and give each other a hi-5. Noogai3 placed the My Computer icon on the Paint text, and an explosion occurred, causing the Blue Screen of Death and ending the episode.
