So yeah, this is probably the best animation I'll make for at least a short while. I put the most effort into this than I have any other animation, and I really hope that it shows. Enjoy!

As always, animation-specific criticism is greatly appreciated as I'm still young and learning!

This was quite funny.

The lyrical style of Parry Gripp has always reminded me of Weird Al for some reason. Only difference being he has less of a squeaky voice than Al and tends to sound more forceful when he sings which makes me happy.

The animation was pretty good. The characters seem a bit boring looking and focuses more on facial expressions. I guess you drew in this style since drawing a full character, hair, clothes, details and all for more than a few frames takes more time than you want to be used right?

The vegetables looked pretty simple yet nice. I also enjoy vegetables but can't stand the taste of some vegetables such as beets or asparagus. Song kind of reminds me of an earlier song that someone else animated on here (Do You Like Waffles?). Nice to see that years later, people like you still enjoy animating his tunes.

The backgrounds were also good. Only really glaring issue I felt was with the brick wall for some reason. Not sure why but it felt slightly off to me for whatever reason. I can let it slide on animating the inside of his mouth since I imagine that would be putting in far more detail than what is really needed for a music video.

The audio is Parry Gripp, not much more needs to be said there. Kind of sad how he stopped doing "Song a Week" after a year. However, I imagine making a song every week was a lot of work.

Overall, very nicely done music video.

Yeah the brick wall was a bit of an issue for me, and thinking back I should have done something like no lines but different colours. Oh well. Thanks!

Awesome video! I think that the animation and song are both well made, however, I think that perhaps you might want add more facial features for the characters. Just a suggestion, and all your videos will remain good.

I'd like to start off by saying it's nice to see a flash that has a fullscreen button. It's not often you see that and it's really a nice feature :3.

As far as art and animation goes, this was pretty top-notch. The frame by frame animation was really nice, though the characters were drawn rather simplistically. There were some detailed backgrounds, but a lot of simple ones too. Really nice choice of colors, it made this interesting to look at. The part where the camera moved in a pseudo-3D way when they were by the brick wall looked a bit awkward. This tends to happen when you try to tween 3D camera movements. It's usually best to animate 3D shots frame by frame, even if it is a huge pain. It will end up looking more natural in the long run. This could use some minor tweaks in the art department, but overall it's really good.

The pacing and direction in this felt good, aside from one or two shots staying on screen for a little longer than felt necessary, mainly the conveyor belt shots, but that's honestly a minor nitpick. There was a wide variety of angles and aside from a few instances, the shot progression felt natural and, again, made this really interesting to look at.

The song was interesting; a bit weird but it got a chuckle out of me, and your animation really fit with the music, so this is a pretty effective music video.

There really isn't much I can say about this. It worked well as a music video, was mildly entertaining and the animation was great. There's always room for improvement though. I hope this review was helpful to you, and good luck with your future submissions!

Yeah, I drew the characters like this because it is generally easier for me to animate, and I probably wouldn't have been able to pull off half the stuff I did.
Frame-by-frame on the brick wall shot? I guess I could experiment with that
As for the conveyor belt shot being long - well I'm just kind of lazy and didn't feel like animating something new :P
Thanks!
