"Flippers on Deck" is the second single by Antarctican pirate and recording artist Rockhopper. It was released on April 5, 2010 by Club Penguin Music Records. It is the second single to be released off Rockhopper's debut album, Rockhopper's Ballads (2011). The song features a guest appearance by Telephonian singer, Meaghan, on the hook. "Flippers on Deck" received standard success on the charts, charting the highest in UnitedTerra and at number 2 in Club Penguin and the USA.

Background[edit]

"Flippers on Deck" was written by Calvin Rockhopper, Ricky Depp, Pomfret Hodgson, Oliver Levine (also known as Flipperstomp), Nathaniel Falak, Maximus Dale (also known as producers SKT and Destroy). Junglefood produced the song. "Flippers on Deck" comes into the pirate hop category again, just like "Yarr Harr Arr", but is more of an upbeat and dance song. The cover of the song continues the cover patterns of "Tee Demo" and "Yarr Harr Arr". The label, Club Penguin Music Records, set up the collaboration with Rockhopper and Meaghan - it was easy to do because they were both on CPMR. The song was recorded in early 2010.

Critical reception[edit]

Raymond Vegas of "SnowMusic" gave the song an adequate review: "The 'stomp-stomp-clap' beat of the song has been heard so many times before, but Junglefood experiments with the cliché beat the best. But at the same time, the song lacks any excitement. It's just a normal hit song that you will get bored of at the end of the day. Nevertheless, Rockhopper does a great job." 3/5 stars

Others were more negative - giving the song a 1 or 2 out of five. The highest rating the song got by major reviewers was 4 out of 5. The most positive comment on the song was the excellent beat by newcomer producer Junglefood. Critics also favoured the punchlines in the song delivered by Rockhopper.

Music video[edit]

The video premiered exclusively on Penguin TV at 5pm on May 15, 2010, and was uploaded onto PengTube the same day. The video continues from the video of "Yarr Harr Arr". It is now night time and all the pirates come out of the Lighthouse and head to a rave that's being held at the Dock. The Dock is transformed into a "Night Club at sea", where the pirates have a dance-off with the expert dancers. Rockhopper does the famous "Rockhopper Jig" on the dancefloor and the crowd declare the pirates the winners of the dance-off. Meaghan arrives at the DJ set and continues the song as she sings. The video ends with the pirates going back to the ship chanting "Flippers ON DECK!" The video has gained over 10 million views.
