I get it! "Mark of the Beast" (Beast's owner)

I always enjoy a good flash simulated documentary. They are usually humorous & point out issues that one has about the topic being spoofed. In my opinion, FB needs a few good parodies, because their support is bad, and they seem to be isolated from the rest of the world. They just do whatever they please & only worry about the consequences, after people complain about the features they release. What is Timeline? It's tearing the face off of the virtually dead MySpace & wearing it Lecter style. It's nothing new. One's frustrations need to go somewhere. A good parody always helps.

The animation was basic, but it did its job. The writing was good. It didn't make me laugh until I couldn't breathe, but there were ample chuckles to myself. It was a little on the subtle side. It didn't rely on silly voices, over the top profanity, and shouting. I enjoyed it, though.

Ha ha, a nice satire. The animation was a little static but the lip synching was decent and i liked your character design. The pacing was perfect and the the script was pretty great too with the interchanging of interviewees never letting the audience get bored. I thought the voice acting was decent (i particularly liked the chav) and the background music was suitabley chosen and not too loud so as to distract. The transitions were proffesionally done and i really can't think of much to complain about. Looking forward to part 2!

did you really throw in a picture of the signing of the declaration for the showing of them in court? and you made one of the "anonymous" wear a vendetta mask. i liked it, but it was kinda of boring.
