Hello!

Included in this presentation prepared exclusively for Newgrounds are scenes from the "Virus Alert 3D" GAME that was released on May 6th, 2007! Please spread the word about this game... it was over a year in the making!

You may or may not have seen this video I made last year for "Weird Al." Here it is, in all the glory of uncompressed Flash, with new pause/play functionality.

... although this isn't my favourite Weird Al music, it's still pretty funny (honestly, even a "weak" Weird Al song still is much better than most) and the music video you've made (which I had already seen on youtube, btw) is really good. Although you kept your "unique" stlye, it fits the music well, and, of course, it's very well drawn and animated.

More importantly, the humor of the movie was in "perfect harmony" (well, that's a slight exageration) with the music, exagerated (as it should, with Weird Al) and pretty funny. Yeah, only "pretty funny", but in all honesty, I actually think that the music is the "weak" link here, you did pretty much everything right!

Of course, even though even single review is going to mention this, the RAB cameos were great! Oh, and I also found the (small) extra scene interesting, but you should have shown us more of the game! It wasn't enough to get any feeling of how it looks and works (etc) and, thus, it didn't make curious enough to go check it out. In any case, cheers and 'grats on actually making a Weird Al video!

One little question, though (although I don't expect you to answer, given the huge number of reviews I'm expecting), how much input did Al give into the music video? Did give you a free hand, or did he pretty much tell you everything?

Well it's alright...

I saw this video when it originally came out on the Striaght Outta Lynwood CD. It was probably my 4th favorite... only in front of "Don't Download This Song" and "Pancreas." I was surprised to see that it ended up here!

There's really not too much I can complain about, except I don't really feel like it captured the mood of the song as well as it could have. Some of the lyrics were portrayed kind of boringly, and although I could see you trying to go for that "mass chaos" kind of mood from a virus messing up the whole world, I didn't think you made it well... quite chaotic enough. Still, the animation is decent and its a pretty enjoyable video. The "skool play" thing was a nice touch. XD
