Todd plays "Tic-Tac-Toe" on the piano

KYPER - TIC-TAC-TOE
A one-hit wonder retrospective

Todd: Welcome back to One Hit Wonderland, where we take a look at bands and artists known for only one song. And I will admit, One Hit Wonderland is set up...

(A collage of shots showing various one-hit wonder artists)
Todd (VO): ...mostly to explore the one-hit wonders that people still remember, not the ones...

Todd: ...who even their one song got forgotten. But every so often, I feel like reminding everyone that, not every one-hit wonder stands the test of time. So, why don't we take a moment to explore this piece of ephemera I've picked up today, which... I just want to assure people that, yes, was in fact a real thing.

(Video for "Tic-Tac-Toe" plays while Todd just dances along)
Kyper: X, and O
It's like yes, and no
Tic Tac Toe
Todd (VO): This guy is named, Kyper. And this song is called "Tic-Tac-Toe". Yes, it was a hit; it reached number 14 in the autumn of 1990. And yes it's about tic-tac-toe. Yes that's a metaphor for sex. Yes, it samples (Logo for the band...) Yes. (Video for "Owner of a Lonely Heart" by Yes) That is in fact a sample of "Owner of a Lonely Heart" by the band Yes. (Portion of the song plays briefly).

Todd: And what else do I know about this song? Not a goddamn thing!

Kyper: Tic-Tac-Toe is a game I used to play
When I little, I used...
Todd (VO): I've certainly never heard it played anywhere I'm, guessing almost none of you have either. I don't even remember how I came across it. But once I did hear it, I've never forgotten it.

Todd: I'm honestly just, kinda, doing this for the episode as an experiment. To see if I can get an entire video out of someone this obscure.

Todd (VO): Cause, there's no interviews with the guy, not a lot of footage out there; I am flying blind folks.

Todd: But hey; if you like really uncreative sampling such as was popular in the 90s,...

Todd (VO): ....really basic rhyme flows and, sweet, sweet dance moves, well I've got just the song for you.

Kyper: ...and no, tic-tac-toe
Todd: Let's play some tic-tac-toe everyone. Centre square for the win!
Kyper: Do you wanna play? (Tic-Tac-Toe)
