Doritos, Hitler, Geese, and a Safari. Flash, with a pinch of lunacy.

I *must* be missing the point.

Jesus fucking Christ. Is there a chance that one of these days praise and admiration can be placed on the people who DIDN'T just put online the first project they ever made in Flash to test what the program can do? This isn't even something wacky a la Hi-Ho or RatherGood; those has a concept and layout. This is animated shit. It's the Flash equivalent of hitting the DEMO button on a Casio keyboard.

Sorry to sound so bitter, but I've worked at studios that are going under because they can't get the funding for legitimate, entertaining, and creative Flash animation that they actually give a rat's ass about putting effort into. Meanwhile this garbage will have t-shirts by the end of the week.

Ah, it sounds like Brak, but without the charm.

Personally I like the wacky ones. Although this one was too purposely wacky. I didn't get the same feeling of insanity as I got from the PIKA one a few years ago. This one looked like it tried too hard to look insane and you could even tell how they changed certain parts to make it appear that way.

XQUZYPHYR, the problem you mentioned is not just for flash. In all realms of art it's either do something creative or do something popular/money producing.

It's at times like these when I really miss Joel Hodgson and his cute bots.

Lunacy, with a pinch of Flash?

To me it looked like someone wasn't taking his meds.

What a total waste of time and bandwidth. Not to mention I won't want any Doritos for awhile.

I liked it.

XQUZYPHYR, I want the t-shirt.

I seem to forget... Is it that I will die within a week of seeing that or I just hope to?

You have to watch the whole thing. It is obvious that this person has talent. He is just very clever in concealing that fact.

I have started to pay more attention to this type of thing, this video that focuses on editing. I hate it, but they do some amazing things. Watch IFC between the movies, or just regular previews. It's worth figuring out why this works.

I don't think this is good, though. At best, it's a tricky Doritos commercial. I do not need Doritos to convince me to use MSG, thank you, I use MSG anyway. It really does make things taste better, in moderation.

I am being partly sarcastic, because I think the use of MSG is the only thing Doritos has going for them.

BTW, I think the geeks may appreciate this: It sounds hella like Crispin Glover's "These Boots Are Made for Walking."
