The early aughts were a time of great storytelling on MTV: true lives were explained, cribs were explored, and rides were unquestionably pimped. That said, the most enduring legacy of Pimp My Ride arguably wasn't the aforementioned pimped rides themselves, but rapper-turned-tv-host Xzibit and his absurd entrance on every episode.
Fortunately, one brave soul has gathered together every entrance, from all 72 episodes, into one monster video for the ages. All your favorites are here: Xzibit walking toward the camera in slow motion, Xzibit vanishing in a puff of smoke, Xzibit shooting clones of himself with lightning -- it's basically a time capsule of every horrible special effect devised in the 2000s, and it's beautiful.
