Gordon Ramsay vs Julia Child is the sixtieth installment of Epic Rap Battles of History and the second episode of Season 5. It features Scottish-born British chef and television personality, Gordon Ramsay, rapping against culinary PBS television host, Julia Child. It was released on May 18th, 2016.
This episode was released two days later than originally scheduled due to technical difficulties.
As seen in the main behind the scenes video, a scene featuring Julia Child popping up from behind a plate of shrimp jelly was initially going to be in the battle, but it was ultimately scrapped. This was likely due to part of the jelly giving way while it was being set on the plate.
The Epic Rap Battles of History logo was seared into a beef patty during Ramsay's second verse, a reference to commercial break sequences played during TV shows such as Hell's Kitchen.
During Ramsay's "And I'm shitting on you like I'm whack-flows intolerant!", his lips were not synced up to the part "shitting on you like...".
The chef portrayed by Sulai Lopez can be seen taking away Child's cookbook, yet it appears back on the counter in the next shot.
In the same cut, a pot sitting on the counter next to the cookbook disappears.
During Ramsay's line, "I mean, it's rubbish!", the chef portrayed by Felicia Folkes is seen running to the left side of the table, while Lopez's chef is on the right side; however, in the very next line, "Yes, chef!", which zooms in on her, she is on the right side of the table, while Lopez's chef runs behind her from the left side. In a subsequent shot, Folkes' chef can be seen running from the left side of the room back to where she just was on the right.
