Off Road Wraith! Off Road Wraith! Off Road Wraith! Off Road Wraith! Going where Wraiths have not gone before No one road can contain it Unstoppable by man or beast Despite efforts to subdue it It speeds across the country side Its direction tried and true Terrain is not a factor here So it's probably gonna find you (Cause it's an) Off Road Wraith! Off Road Wraith! Off Road Wraith! Off Road Wraith! Off Road Wraith! Off Road Wraith! Off Road Wraith! Off Road Wraith! Over rocks, and up inclines It ascends a giant mountain It travels both by land and sea A feat of innovation Propelled by some mystic force It is not bound by soil The Off Road Wraith will fly to you And your panties you will soil The Off Road Wraith is not deterred By other vehicles so easily It out performs the other 'hogs Cause it's purple paint is beastly Scorpions don't stand a chance Cause they get stuck on all sorts of crap The Off Road Wraith can PWN them all Cause it goes all over the freaking map (Cause it's an) Off Road Wraith!

Behind the Scenes
- The video was originally going to be a brief, one minute video, but was lengthened due to the rife lyrical possibilities.
- Those who look carefully can spot Cotton Swab from Marlin the Elite featured as one of the spartans in the video. This occured by accident when Kyle, who was helping with the video, forgot to change his character's armor.
