If any of you are wondering why all the proles have dark skin it's because the constant mixture between races will eventually lead to a majority of people with mixed skin. I'm not just pulling this out of my ass, look it up if you dont believe me. Its not like its meant to look as if all the darker skinned people will forever be poor and white people will rule forever or anything.
Also the creativity, artwork, and especially the atmosphere in my opinion is exceptional. I truly enjoyed watching this and applaud the time the creators of this flash must've put into this in order to create a 16 1/2 minute flash of such high quality

A gorgeous piece of science fiction, "LUCKY DAY FOREVER" is easily one of the best things I've seen featured on Newgrounds in a long time. With beautiful artwork, smooth animation and a surprisingly well developed setting for it's short run time this flash animation offered up a great experience.

The only nitpick I have is related to the plot so spoilers warning in advance. At first I thought the entire piece was taking a dark look into the separation between the famous and the average. The way the main character transforms and instantly becomes another bloated celebrity ego talking how he was "born" to greatness reflects how powerful the effects of sudden fame and wealth can have on people, and how easy it is to lose yourself to it. Everything from the ads to the TV blaring in his apartment idolizes the luxurious but empty existence these "winners" live compared to the struggling but very real existence of the average people we see. The problem is the sudden ending which turns the whole thing into a dystopian conspiracy piece that not only seems to go against all of the initial imagery, but creates more than a few plotholes. Why did he wake up and was able to escape? What are the "white people" if they aren't the reborn winners of the lottery? I guess it kind of works if this is just a political commentary on the idea of the rich feeding off of the poor while deceiving them with the idea of the American dream, but that message seems a lot more forced if that's what you were trying to say.
