This animation is my perception of what Newgrounds seems to be all about. It's based around not only what's popular on Newgrounds, but also most of the weird things that I constantly see in the portal.

This would have a lot lower score if it did not have %u02DDnewgrounds%u02DD in it's name.

Good animation; but not very amusing.

Mildly entertaining? That's the only 1-line sum-up I felt from this otherwise mediocre flash. You did capture a small chunk of Newground's feel no doubt but there was numerous problems with it. Not only did you seem to leave out a massive TSUNAMI of the most epic newgrounds content, I can forgive that because you would probably need an hour-long video of 3-second clips to fill that void; but you seem to resort to constant penis-jokes (I'm aware penises are highly favorable by Newgrounds goers, but seriously; come on.) and a few 4chan memes. It's as if you honestly COULDN'T think of anything else! Why the hell would you include specific non-newgrounds content (Over Nine-thousand, Shoop De Whoop; just to name a couple) in addition to filler in an already short and limited film? I could see if the flash was 10MB long and you added some bits and pieces here and there, but the flash was incredibly short to boot!

In short, the flash honestly wasn't that funny. To someone who's been around NG for years, they'd think it was a dried-up turd baking in the sun; and to someone who hasn't been here for more than a few weeks, they wouldn't get the majority of jokes. The video appeals to no audience other than a braindead idiot who would laugh at just about anything (no offense, 97% of newgrounds users!). Since the animation is for comedy purposes, I am judging based off of humor, nothing else. 4/10; and I'm being awfully lenient.

The animation, however, was pleasing. Fast-paced and, although sloppy, entertaining to watch. The music fit well and was a good choice in my opinion. I must say keep up the good work animating; although I am not sure if humor is really your specialty.
