They also tackle franchises that are parody's and aren't original, because they can't think of anything else which is why they're so popular. They know they aren't original. Look at all of their work. PARODY. PARODY. PARODY. What's that? ANOTHER PARODY.
Exactly...riding other people's fame/notoriety. Not saying it's a bad thing, just that iswhat it is. Get it how you live I guess.
Funny thing is even if it is for the sake of "hate" towards any artist what a dumb tactic. Not because of what they're doing, but because you actually emphasize the fame of that person.
Take for instance all the Justin Beiber stuff etc. Yeah, it may be hate or dissing him, but you're making him even bigger at the same time. Had I never heard of him well now guess who's the person that brought him to my attention?
I watched the flash when I first came to login even before the topic and it had it's moments for me. I even gave it a 3. It wasn't bad. Not much to do with SF, was more of a jab or blatant stab at certain people. Ok, even then...still cool. I don't know they may have personal beef or whatever.
However, when it was all said and done I wasn't like "oh let me see what else this artist has done." I was confused at why they were even going after them and the ones I had heard of, like Rina-Chan, I was just intrigued to look them up to see what they did or do to deserve this.
So, in essence, it just made me look further into the thing they went after. I came to the conclusion "oh they just must not like her and her camp."
...that was it. So if it was 5 months of effort, they got whatever amount of time I spent watching the flash and I put more effort into actually looking into the person and people they went after. I could be wrong, but I'm sure that isn't what they wanted the end goal to be. lol.
Hell, I'd be honored if someone made a flash and dissed me in it. Hell even more so since I've never done a flash or been a part of any. So, for someone to take the time to animate me or even reference me takes effort on their part. And all I did was be......me?
That's some ego stroking right there. Even if they meant it out of hate, they had to put effort towards it. I just continued to be me. In that sense I'm pretty special to be singled out. And in the end, I may not know them....but they show they certainly know me and have even went so far as to bring me to other people.
That's e-fame right there for ya.
