Sorry it took this long for me to upload this to Newgrounds, guys! I animated this for Weird Al back in 2006 when he released "Straight Outta Lynwood". I haven't had the chance to upload it here until now. Go buy the awesome dual-disk DVD that is this amazing album!

Long story short, life has been busy.

But here it is now! For being one of the old-timers on newgrounds, I feel I need to make my profile more "complete" ;) For those of you wondering why I can upload this whole video and not Star Wars Gangsta Rap: Chronicles, it's because the legal terms and conditions are different. Let's just say atom.com's licensing contract with me when it comes to Star Wars Gangsta Rap is much more strict.

Sorry about the filesize - like with many of my more recent music videos, the animation is simply too intensive for me to render without dividing the .fla files in many different parts, so I had to render the music video in segments then export the whole thing as Quicktime, then I embed the Quicktime movie file back into Flash - and this is the results. There is no way for me to get it any smaller. I figure most people are on broadband by now, so it shouldn't be too much hassle... I mean, who goes on Newgrounds today with a dial-up anyway?

UPDATE 1 - I know many of my older works have been missing from my profile because I wanted to promote my presence at atom. I apologize to the few of you who still follow my works here, and I have re-uploaded all of them! Check out my profile for some nostalgia!

UPDATE 2 - It seems many of you find the video getting slightly out-of-synch. One way to fix it is to use the video navigation at the bottom left of the screen. A few back and forth at the out-of-synch parts will fix it! Sorry for the inconvenience!

I rate 5...seriously nice

That was great andI know its Weird Al's song but of course then you gotta judge it on the animation and the animation was AWSOME!!! I mean, it was seriously good not one single flaw, everything went pretty much perfectly with the song.

+The bit leading up to the ending was epic, all that money, all those lawsuits, lawl.
AND forget the fags that rate it low "Coz it ant ure song" they suck man no one likes them.

Perfect!

Well, we knew it was going to come to Newgrounds sooner or later and you did not disappoint - the video quality may be down slightly from the Lynwood CD, but then that would probably be about 50mb of file, so people would wait an age (relatively) to watch it on here. Perhaps in the future, an HD version will creep on when broadband speeds become good enough to cope with it, who's to say?

The gags in here are brilliant, especially the Tom Morello style guitar, stating "Arm the Lawyers". I love the way that you've portrayed Al himself as the main character in the song and having all of the things in there actually happen to him. The sad thing is, I can actually see some people in this world being dense enough to do something that silly and then try to blame others for their downfall.

It is very clear that you spent an absolute age getting this piece right - the number of fine details that you've paid attention to, such as the cigarette lighters' flames moving independently of the sway (I think you could have made them flicker a little more, but that's probably asking too much of you there!)

Even the credits are tied in nicely with the piece - I was expecting a little polka, or something else of Al's when we got to the end, but you probably would have had to cut something like that for time, or space, which is a shame.

I look forward eagerly to more of your works.

Haha

I saw this video ages ago on Youtube. I didn't know you made it until i saw the Star Wars Gangsta Rap SE. It's awesome that it's here now! The quality of the video is somewhat poor though. The energy in the song is matched greatly by the video with great visuals and nice art.
Good job "old-timer"!
