Not only has Axman favorited it, but contacted Dmac and congratulated us on the bubble of success it's having. As I mention time and time again, this video was never about bullying Axman, it was about showcasing a year old audio track that I felt deserved more than a dust collection.
The fact that PSTW is now near to 600k views, Dot Dot Dot is the #1 audio track, NG has gained exposure from a number of prominent sites (not that it needed it, or that it's the first time), and a great deal of people are finding Axman's review more hilarious than idiotic, are all positive things.
No, I don't think this is the most amazing flash, by far. Yes, I think Dmac's voice carried the majority of the success. No, this vid was never meant to destroy Axman. Yes, this video was meant to be an experiment in typography. Nothing more. The fact that some good came out of it, and that all parties (even Axman) are enjoying it ... is all I could ask for.
Whether there was an gravity in your comment or not, I have been meaning to say all this for a while, so forgive me if this reply is like, "WTF, dude, I was just sayin'! What's up with this emotional diary entry, sheesh!"
I'm an emotional guy. And I like puppies. And I like cupcakes. And I like puppies licking cupcake frosting off each other's little noses.

Personally, I consider this an act of extreme trolling rather than a success story. Sure, most everyone has bad grammar and spelling in the interwebs, but very few (like axman13) have spelling and grammar that wouldn't rival that of a very retarded dog. The last thing he would need is someone deliberately reading and pronouncing the mistakes in a front-page animation. Thank god for anonymity.
You may think that this retard deserves the abuse he will no likely get from the world's trollers, but cut him some slack. You wouldn't write swear words on an orphanage; why should we pick this poor man apart just because he makes lolcats look like English university professors?
Bow your heads in shame, RicePirate and D-Mac.
