Ignore that last guy

If his hummer is dull, then that's his problem.

I like this flash, because it's obvious that a lot of careful planning went into it. Did you blindwrite it? (Go into it not knowing the outcome.)

The chain of events was flawless. I think everyone can relate to the bald man, gleefulling awaiting something in the mail, only to be disillusioned in the end by the end result.

Anyone who hasn't had a defining moment where they realize marketing often doesn't tell the truth is lying.

The music is an oddly perfect fit. I also love your style of using almost no speech in your flashes to get your ideas and points across. It gives for a nice, fresh experience.

"But I love bunnies!" This flash had all emotions churning into one...I may be in pixelated love.

Probably the best flash of yours on NG, hatrobot!

And I believe I've seen them all (though perhaps I missed a couple along the way... if so, I'll fix it sooner or later, heh), too.

I loved the references, BTW, to some of your earlier works in the scene towards the end of this one. Any hatrobot fan should be able to spot a few other faves (like the boxing scene and the restaurant scene for example).

Now, the basic plot of this one is somewhat funny at first... but once all the different threads entangle after teh spray on hair can is tossed out the window and all hell breaks loose... well, that's the greatness part. I particularly loved the bee dialogue. Heh.

And the musical accompaniment, as almost always is the case with your flashes, works perfectly in this climactic segment. The burning hair, BTW... the first time I saw this it was somewhat funny in a twisted way. Now it's just kinda disturbing. That's quite the fascinating effect, methinks.

And back to clicking the clicker goes our protagonist... same as it ever was, same as it ever was.

OH NOE... THE SPRAY CAN SURVIVED THE CALAMITY! Mr. reporter smiling just like the main guy is super-disturbing, BTW. Heh. Good show as always, hatrobot!

Thank you. You are always the most polite with your reviews. I truly appreciate it.
