I am still out to sea about this whole computer-text-to-cartoon film thing. Couldn't the creator of this found two people to act it out in an office setting? I just think it's not any good at all.

There's a whole club of those kinda folks in Cleveland. This was spot on.

I can get paid for that? In this economy? I've been doing it all wrong, apparently.

I'd've put this in the existing thread about making movies with Xtranormal.

What year is this? That speech synth sounded like my Commodore 64.

Ah. So, "Social Media Guru" is the new "SEO Guru." Seems like you could use the attitude and spiel for both.

This was very bad, and not good bad.

That would require having the social skills necessary to network and create media.

I think the stilted text-to-speech voices and blocky, herky-jerky animations actually improved on this guy's comedy stylings.

You're right. Upon trying to post it to that existing thread or the one a month later, I would have seen that they were both closed and then realized how painfully tired the whole thing is and not bothered.
Or maybe I'd have made a kooky Xtranormal video about the whole thing, with (funny!) swearing robot-voices.

I thought it was hilarious. But I still think Keyboard Cat is funny. Make of that what you will.
