Enjoy.

"Prole 514 dreams about winning the Great Lottery. The lottery winner is transformed and allowed admission into the elite White society, where everyone is beautiful, young and happy and people spend their carefree lives solely on fun and partying. One day, 514's wish comes true... but was this what he really wanted?"

What can I say about this?
In 2004 I watched "Smile!". I was only discovering the part of Newgrounds that held real pieces of art. It was a long time ago, but that animation had enough effect on me that as soon as I started watching Lucky Day Forever I realized it was you again. I was thrilled with expectation but the movie proved to go far beyond anything I could expect. So... what can I say about this? No words would make it justice, so I won't try to describe the experience of watching it. All I can say is thank you, for showing me the potential of the flash world and, 8 years later, showing me how far can it go and evolve.

It truly is a wonder to have seen this done. Great artwork but the story line has something more to say than what it is saying. It implies so much and it is true.

I remember watching the earlier from a awhile back and I'm glad to have seen it completely now...
What compelled me the most was the story which was thought put pretty damn good and got me hooked till the end..
Anyways this was really something to watch..

That was so deep...

It says a lot about society. Too much, I'm afraid...

despite a core odd ending that is pretty open and shut but at the same time is very confusing, i really enjoyed these concepts you threw our way. the timing, the emotion, the designs are all stupendous, though i reaaaallly thought the whole extended fantasy was a little odd, just replacing her face and not the entire woman in his paradise dream, though either outcome was fairly easy to see coming.

spoilers:

its a story about getting everything but only wanting the simple pleasure of a love you had all along. its a very old plot and a very well done one, with great voice acting, cinematic cues, and some of the most oddly minimal yet realistic human animation i've seen in a long time. its the reason why i complain to psychicpebble, and the reason i hate talentless, effortless parodies. this can be accomplished by anyone with writing talent and tenacity to make their vision come to life. i also have to acknowlege the whole "race is class" subject, because i've never seen something so in your face about the social struggle being transformed into something as simple as "love what you have, because paradise is empty without it".

bravo team. bravo.
