MC Hawking: Music Video

Author Comments

Thanks to everyone who reviewed this video. It was a lot of work and it's great to see that so many people appreciate it.

To answer a few questions that seem to come up over and over again in the comments: The CD is really available (you can get it at Amazon by clicking on the audio link on the left), I created the song including the music and lyrics, lastly the video is not meant to be anti-christian specifically, it is anti-fundamentalist-reli
gion, be that christian, muslim, jewish, newage or whatever. When taken to the extreme (as fundamentalists do) all religions are equally foolish and dangerous.

Anyway, tahnks again for all the great reviews and comments.


Chizzy-check it!

This is the first official video of off the Hawkman's new album 'A Brief History of Rhyme: MC Hawking's Greatest Hits'. It's for the song 'What We Need More Of Is Science' and represents a massive amount of my time and the time of several people without which I could not have made this video. Specifically:

Nate Sands - Nate did most of the art for this project and helped with the script.

Tony Moore - Tony did the rest of the art.

Dave Mitchell - Dave did the voice of the Fundamentalist and the narrator.

I would also like to thank Newgrounds, Brash Music and the gravitational pull of the moon.

All right, that's it. Vote early and often!

Very Cool and Original. =)

I like the motive of your video....but just to say this, Religion and Science can go hand-in-hand together.

After all a great Jewish sage once said (forgot which one >_<)

"He who takes the bible literally is an idiot"...ok so i was paraphrasing, but that's pretty much what he said.

Errr yeah...bible literalists would take us back to the dark ages wouldn't they?

Brilliant, brash and right on target.

Clever idea and well executed. Love the jabs at those who are brainwashed into a religion. It's too bad the intrinsic message of this movie is going to be lost on the average NG user.
It would be cool if you provided the lyrics on the replay screen. It's a bit hard to understand parts of the verses when it sounds like a fast talking Pube Muppet.. BTW - wtf is the deal with Hawking's voice modulator? I saw him recently at a local university and I couldn't understand him. In this day and age of amazingly clear and worthy speech synthesizers why the fuck is he still using one that sounds like an old Atari.

Trule a work of skill

Good stuff man, all my faive are belong to this.

The music was awsome haha

That was actually pretty good.

Your artwork and animation is obviously very well done. The music kicked ass, and this was all around a pretty good movie. Not much else to say, well done.
