Jerry Springer animation and animated text

I should respect Creative Commons and credit Carla Isabel Ribeiro for the snail picture, but I won't.

hm.

Well, since none of the other reviewers said anything I can agree with (like reviewing the song vs your work), I'll post something:

While I do like the idea of animating words to go along with audio (Dot Dot Dot for example), I feel like a bit more effort could have been put in. There was one point in particular where the text would proceed in groups of 4-5 words, and wasn't really synced with the words (Starting with the words "Holy Cow!"). Early on, some words went off the screen, which should be an easy fix. Other than that, you should probably add some more backgrounds, fonts, colors, and some new ways to have the text appear, rather than just popping up. And, maybe put a bit more effort into the drawings, or at least incorporating them.

I did like some of the minor jokes in the words, like having the letters of "Siamese" fused together, but other than that, its not all that special, tbh.

Hopefully you find this helpful for any future projects, and I hope I didn't make myself sound like an ass. Also, if you want to see what I mean by different animation for the words, check out Dot Dot Dot if you haven't already, it was VERY popular.

Yes, I've seen Dot Dot Dot.

The problem is, I can't actually draw. I used character art from a game I'm making that took *forever* to draw. As for the sync, I thought it synced well, but I'm not good with hearing that kinda stuff. The words going of the screen was probably because you didn't have an OSX computer(I used fonts like Apple Casual).
Ya, I guess I should have used some tweens and keyframe animations.

Thank you for your review :)

I didn't make the song, so this is the most useless review I've ever gotten. Go download old Popeye cartoons and eat icecream, because that's what you do. ALL YOU DO.

LisVender is below me!

While not the best "Weird Al" Yankovic parody out there, it was still fairly decent. I do not think I have ever heard this song before. Seeing as how popular he is on this website and the entire Internet, you would think I would have heard of everything of him by now. It does kind of look as though this would not be something you would see on this website. It is not the best idea to just have text going around and stuff. What matters is that the song is still great.

Of course, you can never really go wrong with Weird Al Yankovic. Just like I should have expected, I have no idea what song this is supposed to be a parody of. At least you put in some original drawings that worked well. I suggest that you focus a bit more on using pictures and not just show text everywhere. Still not bad, though.

It never hurts to have more Weird Al cartoons!

I especially the liked the taco/talkshow "predictive text" effect you sneaked in there. :)

Why are you comparing me to people who can draw?
