First off this was made for NATA 2012 Novice Round. 32 animators had 25 days to create a cartoon based around the theme "the elephant in the room".

Ok, I did this one in around 22 days. After receiving the theme for this round I was having some trouble thinking of a good idea. Should I go with the literal meaning or the expression? I thought of brief ideas for each scenario, but I decided to go with a little bit of both (obviously more literal than idiomatic, but there's still a small ounce of the expression in there).

Um, yeah, so I hope the plot makes sense. Let me know if it doesn't. Music by Kevin MacLeod, and me! (whaaaaat?) Yeah I made a song so that's cool. And sound effects form

The elephant was in the the bathroom, but it's still a room, amirite?
The middle seemed to move slow, but the whole thing was very entertaining. Sound, plot and animation were all competent and well balanced. I have no idea why I liked something so simple, but I do.

Really great job, man. I love your interpretation. It's simple concept, but executed very well. I can't say I was bored for a single moment.

However, there were a few parts where the motion feels a little mechanical (such as the motion blur going from the two dudes to the bathroom). Good luck, man!

Brewster responds:

Thanks! Yeah I know, some parts I had a little trouble with. Good luck to you too!
