The two programs involved are `toilet` and `lolcat`. `toilet` is a program that takes text as input, and turns it into fancy multi-line letters. It has different "fonts" available for this purpose; all the available fonts are stored in the `/usr/share/figlet` directory. Here are just some examples: ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/a6d9e134-b16a-4d68-9ceb-668e608573b9.png) Actually, `toilet` also has a built-in option to colour it, but it doesn't look very nice IMO, as the colour changes are too sudden: ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/89eebce5-6506-4da9-8ed9-ba38bf6150dc.png) `lolcat` is a program that takes some text, and prints the same text, but rainbow-coloured. Note that you need a terminal with 256-colour support (rather than just 16) for the desired effect. It can colour any text in rainbow: ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/253c8f62-d6b1-4417-911e-f154fc5c83ed.png) (The wrapping at 80 characters is so that the lines don't get longer than the terminal width. `lolcat` starts looking weird when they do. And now, by combining these two, we can get fancy rainbow-coloured text! ![](https://lemmygrad.ml/pictrs/image/d351e416-f3c2-4009-b305-3491e3364b69.png) Enjoy! :)

These parodies are actually pretty good! [Here's "We Didn't Start The Kernel", plus the rest of the playlist.](https://invidious.sethforprivacy.com/watch?v=5nZFuQVz-mY&list=PL6sYHytyKN2-X93TurF3JptW8qSVm0DzA&index=1)
