Hello Newgrounds, long time no see...
From the creator of "Aura" comes a brand new [quite old by now, actually..] flash production - SMILE! .
What was to be quick side project turned into a beast that took me over 3 months... Three months of forsaking and returning, three months of occasional work suicides and sleepless nights...

as always, NOTE: May not be liked by everyone, but was never meant to be liked by everyone. If you're here only to watch funny mario parodies, then you can skip this movie now.

Enough nagging. Watch the movie.

(There are quite many people that get confused by the ending. Just to let you know - yes, it's supposed to be the way it is. )

That was great! Who does stuff like that on Newgrounds anymore? I'd be interested to know what your motivation for making this movie was and what theme you attempted to get across. I was reminded of high school where you're told to wear a mask of happiness all the time because everyone else is which makes them all the same, or, robotic. Well, whatever, it was really good.

That was brilliant.

That was great. It was wonderfully animated. It also had some pretty good social commentary. It seemed to have quite a few allusions to "A Brave New World."

I have never seen a more amazingly realistic flash... it is exactly like the way the government tells us to do. I have never thought this much about a flash before end kinda sucked BUT AMAZING!
