Epic Rap Battles of History just released their latest video on June 14, 2016. This time, they have the world's most well known spy agent, James Bond (played by Ben Atha), versus the womanizing hippy spy Austin Powers (played by Nice Peter).

The two spies don't hold back anything in their raps, throwing in dig after dig, ranging from Austin Powers' almost laughable career as a spy to the constant recasting of James Bond's character, with Atha acting as the Daniel Craig version of Bond.

What isn't expected is the appearance of the original James Bond actor, Sean Connery, who is played by Epic Lloyd. Connery takes a dig at Daniel Craig's acting skills, stating that if he wanted to watch bad acting in a movie he "would watch Taken." As if things weren't already heated, Craig and Powers tag team and take a jab at Connery's misogynist complex, with Powers even going so far as to call him "rapey."

On top of the great rap banter, the production as well as the costumes for all three characters made the video even more entertaining.

"James Bond vs Austin Powers" is available on Amazon.
