In the unique episode of Strong's channel, he asks his fans to write parody lyrics to the tune of famous songs and instead of doing a prank that sometimes starts with a pickup line, he performs his made up parody from YouTube Comments. He has made parodies to the tune of Fetty Wap's 679 song, Drake's Hotline Bling, Justin Bieber's Love Yourself, Rihanna's Work, James Bay's Let It Go, The Chainsmokers's Closer and Ed Sheeran's Shape of You.
