**Thanks a TON for the February nomination new grounders! Just to have one title next to of all those other great flashes means a great deal to me! AND A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE DONATED out of the kindness of their hearts! Really, thank you! And I'd just want to assure everyone once again that I read all the reviews you give me on a daily basis! Thanks to everyone who has left one!**

We've all heard the song. I decided to make a music video out of it!

After three painful/agonizing years of work (one year creating it, one year mourning the loss of all my work on it due to a virus, and one year recreating it from scratch), my music video for Haddaway's, "What is Love?" is finally complete.

*If you're animation isn't running smoothly, try turning down the quality by right clicking*

Although it is a day late for Valentine's Day, hopefully you guys can still enjoy it!

Don't forget to watch past the credits! ;)

Some fun facts :
Movie length is 4 min and 30 seconds
12,193 total frames
1,375 symbols
absolutely everything was mouse-drawn
Countless cans of Mountain Dew and Mexican Fiesta flavored Cheez-Its were consumed during the making of this music video
Along with the hidden items, there are secret buttons throughout the movie. See if you can find them all!

I take no credit for this awesome song but all Animation was done by me.
This movie got me thinking.... What exactly, is love?

Hey good movie

Hey good movie. But I am curious, do you really read all your reviews? Cus you have like over 600 of them right now... and they will only get bigger. Anyway, beautiful idea, keep it up and all that...

Awesome work

That is just awesome work, I have watched this many times! I really like that song and you used it greatly in the flash (lip sync...). Things looked pretty bad at first, but everything was good at the end... This made me think about life...

This movie had many little things in it: Clickable objects and humorous little things to notice. I especially liked the "search the things"-game inside the movie. It took me time to find all of those pictures, but the secret clip (not the first one, I actually didn't know will I laugh or cry, when I saw the first clip...) was really worth searching! Just great work, keep doing this!

Here are some hints for finding the secret pictures, for those who don't have the time to search them or just are just too lazy:

Cow --- Look for the girl's icecreamcan.
Man --- Look for a window at the start of the "love/antilove-gunfight".
Exit sign --- At the door behind the boy after the girl runs to street.
Thrash can --- Next to the man who looks up to the girl at the window, pretty much at the beginning.
Another man --- Just one word: Worldmap.
Bag --- The (sitting, not ugly) girl's bag, at the airport.
Cook/chef --- At the roof after the airport scene.
Flying pig --- Look at the sky when the "loveguy" shoots dog and cat.

Great film, I recommend this for everyone!

This was an excellent flash! It was excellently done and composed! Everything worked together and make it magical. What you have done is something special and wonderful. A great song (one of my favorites!) and made a great movie/music video of it! Thank you very much for your submission and look forward to more in the future!
