Most excellent! I wish I could get a grip on simple animation, cause I love this stuff to death.

I liked it. I'm completely clueless when it comes to this sort of thing...is that done with Flash or ???

P.S. Needs more cowbell.

interesting concept, but so much of the appeal for me was in seeing christopher walken dancing around. this loses something in the translation.

yes, loved it! and like thirteen, i didn't know how difficult even simple stick-figure animation could be until i began messing around with flash. he/she/they did a fantastic job mimicking the subtle gestures of the human [stick] body.

oh, and does anyone have a link to the original jonze video? i only saw it once and have always wanted to see it again. thx.

That must have taken some time to do. I sort of wish he'd substituted a different stickfigure in a few places so that this video had a stunt double for some of the more aggressive jumping moves the same way the video did.

Still, that's pretty funny.

Oh, and original video seems to be available here.

bless your soul willnot... beautiful, just beautiful. when i die, i'll do it dancing like walken.

The stick figure has got more rhythm than Walken. Did anyone else think of Kubrick's "Shining" while watching the original video?

I agree with pxe2000... (even if it does sound like I'm agreeing with a vacuum cleaner.)

"Walk without rhythm and it won't attract the worm".

I just heard that lyric and was surprised Bootsie had read Dune.

The mirror scene is fantastic.

crunchland, you're agreeing with a children's toy camera that records on audiotapes. but that's okay, i'm frequently mistaken for a blower.

no, not THAT kind! geez...

seriously, though, i would pay good money to see a stick figure recreation of "praise you".
