What goes up, must come to a downfall

Yep. No matter what kind of corporate job you do for a living, you will always be a corporate dummy, even if you're promoted. that is small businesses, nowadays, are bound to be crushed, bought out, or gone bankrupt because of corporate sellouts like them. if this doesn't make any sense to you, then I don't know any other way. but other than that, nice job.

Manuel is no dummy

Well, makes you think.

Neat, tidy animation and look, and the soundtrack was uberjammin'. It had style to lend. Ending was a tad anti-climatic and abrupt, though.

All the same, I appreschumate it, and the message: ain't no trailer hitch on a hearse.

Nice going.

Very cool

some selected aspects
===================

+++ Everything seems to be timed well to the beats.

+++ I really like the design of the corporate dummies, with the barcode mouths and everything.

- I find myself unsure about the ending - has the dude literally died? Is this meant to show us that life is more important and precious than any job - that we should cherish every moment we have? Or is it a metaphorical crash?

++ But it's great that the animation made me care enough to get me thinking about these things.

- Ending doesn't have the 'woah' effect on me I think it was meant to have. I never really got a sense of him really climbing up the ladder until the very end, when he was on the graph.

overall

A very cool animation which does make me think - partially about what your meaning was.

It maybe wasn't as powerful as intended though.

Amazing.

The animations, drawings..everything. The music... everything was great. I loved the ending, where his ratings dropped like a flaming rock. It's true of today's society. The demands are getting tougher and tougher and standards are becoming harder to meet. And once you've reached the end of the prime, they're done with you and you're gone after all that hard work. :(

Great job for creating a satire of what the modern world is today. :)
