I'm not a big fan of resubmitting work. Never have been. But when this was originally submitted, some dude was running a mass vote script that edited the outcome score of a lot of works. I was one of them. A few people, friends and not, told me I should resubmit it. I finally decided I should. So, please don't hate me for resubmitting this flash in the hopes of a fair vote, please. May not be the greatest thing since sliced bread, but I think it's okay.

Canned buys a semi truck!

This flash took a lot of work, day in and day out. I tried some new animation style (squishy talking characters) and more detail in coloring, as well as trying some new humor out.

Review and enjoy.

yes i'll have the tamato bisque

I like it. It had a good joke that went on and on, as well as a funny set of characters.

Great Work

Interesting front cover.

Graphics are a bit too minimal for the most part and could be more detailed pretty much everywhere except for the characters (mainly in terms of giving the land more character; the landscapes were pretty barren). Otherwise, they followed a clear art direction which was only strayed from slightly when stuff was broken, and with the American flag, which looks like a .gif animation.

Animation was great and paid some attention to specifics. For example, the wheels move, which is something that some Flash animators miss. Also, the 'squishy talking characters' were a good move.

Voice acting is a bit forced and needs more emotion and development. The lines themselves were fine, but they didn't necessarily sound like a natural conversation considering how broken up they were when you pronounced them.

In terms of sound, the music was good, but the sound effects need some tweaking. The jazz music in the beginning is nice and fits well with your logo theme, but is otherwise unrelated, for the actual movie itself is about destroying stuff and committing crimes, which does not fit smooth jazz. The other song you played sort of fit the mood of the situation, but there would have been a better choice. For sound effects, a majority of them were too loud and contrasted with the volumes of everything else. Only the klaxon alarm was at an acceptable noise level; everything else should be brought down.

The plot was funny and original, although it does play on the stereotype of American rednecks to an extent. It was certainly written well, but the voice acting job subtracted from the movie and thus the plot wasn't able to reach full potential.

All in all, great work. Just work on the voice acting, watch your sound effects, spruce up your locales a bit more, and you should be fine.
