** Update: Thank you, voters, for 1st place! **

Lots of thanks to Druox for the music and the mercury.

Visually it's inspired by the work of Lee Hasler and also a 3d short called, "Musicotherapie". I was going for a toy-like style, something clean and silly looking to contrast the dark and edgy music.

This animation's based very loosely on news articles about toxic toys/products originating from China. I also indict bratty kids, bad parents and greedy corporate retailers who care mainly about profits over people. The only likeable character in the piece is maybe the pit bull.

That was freaky!

Wow, this is a great submission because of how sweet the animation was! It was kind of like Cuboy, only even better. I especially love how there are just so many things going on. The only problem is that it really is pretty hard to keep up with the fast lyrics! At least some of them are written onscreen. It's just great to see how well dimensioned these characters look in this. Every person seems to be protruding from the scene itself.

It just goes to show how much variety you can use. I'm not going to say it was related to Christmas because it had toys in it. It works great as a satire, which kind of makes me glad that I am beyond the age of buying toys. Hopefully, we will all grow up soon enough. The voice acting was great, particularly with how it seemed to echo.

Hey thanks. It's good to get feedback from someone who's made so many reviews :) Man, the style's kind of hard to get used to. It's very geometric and would be easily left that way, but I tried to add some flexibility and motion in the movements. Next time I'll do better, although I can't imagine when I'll have time for a new one.

Hopefully the visuals help explain the lyrics and vice-versa. I'll try to put the lyrics up soon. I agree, it's not specifically about X-mas, but it fits very well as far as timing. It contrasts well with the "buy buy buy" b.s. that we're hammered with at this time of the year.

Lead and mercury, man, crazy stuff. It dulls the mind and can even make people act insane if the contamination goes too far. If it acted fast like in the animation, I think a lot more people would be aware of it.

Those particular kids deserved it though

Poison isn't just in toys either, many health products like whey protein have been found to have heavy metals in them. Check around online before buying anything you psychically handle or put into your body.

You're right. In fact, the idea for this song got moving when I was discussing contaminated honey from China.

Fortunately it's possible to detoxify with chlorella or other herbs.

I think they did deserve it. Maybe next year they'll behave themselves better.

Excellent Video With A Very Valid Point...

The video was excellent, and I really liked the block-style animation... Also, you touched on a very valid point... China has been f'n the USA for years through products and industry... I don't understand why anyone in this country would do business with China at all, period... What's even worse is that our government is deep in debt to China that we could never completely sever the ties without starting WW3... We, as Americans, need to wake and smell the coffee... Then we might realize that it is not coffee, but it is, in fact, cyanide laced imitation kool-aid that came from China... Other than that, keep up the great work!! :D

I couldn't have said it better myself! I think ultimately the greedy retailers are to blame, that's why I tried to put the screws to the "Mart"... There are actually a handful of surviving American products, but you'll rarely find them at the "Mart" because they can only make a huge mark-up on cheap imported stuff... they don't find U.S. made goods to be profitable enough...

Thanks again for your review and your support! :)

Yes, I think it was the chemical known as 'melamine' that was mixed with dairy products. Terrible!!!
