Pearl:Y'all know what time it is!
Marina:It's Off the Hook, coming at you LIVE from Inkopolis Square!
Pearl:Yo, Marina! Tell the people the good news before we introduce the stages!
Marina:Huh? Like, right now?! Um... What was the good news again?
(SPLATFEST IN TOWN)
Pearl:You know... The single most important celebration of our culture? The Spla-
Marina:OOH! THE SPLATFEST!
Pearl:Ding ding ding! We've got a Splatfest coming up quick!
Marina:Splatfests always get my ink pumping! I've gotta get my gear ready!
Pearl:Yo, Marina. What's the Splatfest theme this time?
Marina:Haaaaah... I'm too nervous to look. You do it.
Pearl:Fine. The Splatfest theme is... WHAT?!
Marina:What is it, Pearlie? What's the theme?! TELL MEEEEE!
Pearl:OK, here it comes...
Pearl:The Splatfest theme is...
(Starts 19/4 (Fri.) 15:00 - 21/4 (Sun) 15:00 HARE vs TORTOISE)
Pearl:Spring has sprung!
Marina:WORLDWIDE SPLATFEST INKOMING!
Pearl:They're the blazing-fast rabbits who like to have fun along the way: Hares!
Marina:Versus the slow and steady turtles who keep their eyes on the prize: Tortoises!
Marina:Hey! These were the creatures they had on display at the Shellendorf Institute!
Pearl:Yeah, the fossils of these "rabbits" were found along with an ancient fable...
Marina:I don't remember the entire story, but doesn't the tortoise win in the end?
Pearl:Yup. The rabbit's overconfident, so it takes a nap and ends up losing the race.
Marina:So, I mean... It's right there in the fable. Tortoise is going to win the Splatfest.
Pearl:Bahaha! You don't get it, Marina. History only exists so we can rewrite it!
Pearl:The question is: who would win if the tortoise and the hare had a rematch?
Marina:The tortoise. Haven't you ever heard the phrase "history repeats itself"?
Pearl:Nah. The hare's learned from the pain of her last defeat. She's got this ON LOCK.
Pearl:You don't need strategy if you believe in yourself! Don't think...just make moves!
Marina:You wanna know what I think?
Marina:Determination is more important than natural talent.
Pearl:Ha! That's so like you, Rina. Always determined to lose.
Marina:And that's so like you, Pearl. Starved for attention, yet full of yourself.
Pearl:Ooh... Too shay!
Marina:Uh... What? Did you jus--
Pearl:Aight! Tortoise and the hare. REEEEEEE-MAAAATCH!
Marina:OK, but I'm pretty sure you just said-
Pearl:...So there you have it, folks. Head to the sign board in the plaza and VOTE!
Marina:Hold up, Pearl! We've still got announcements to make!
Pearl:Oh snap! That's right!
Marina:First off, this is a 48-hour Splatfest. AND we've got special springtime gifts!
Pearl:Including a new line of shoes designed by yours truly, Off the Hook!
Marina:Pearl and I designed four pairs of shoes each. Enjoy!
Pearl:Kicks for days! Wear a different shoe on each foot and double your fun!
Marina:Uh....that's wildly against the rules.
Pearl:And that's that! Head to the square and cast your vote!
Marina:And after you vote, hit up the Equip screen and put on your Splatfest Tee!
Pearl:And that's all the time we've got!
Pearl:Until next time...
2人:Don't get cooked... Stay off the hook!
