"Let's imagine that somewhere in a hotel room there's a really talented and really bored composer who has mastered the art of accompanying himself with dial tones while calling random people in their homes."

How it happened:
After listening to all of Andrew's music based on wacky requests, I really wanted to request my own. I had the idea trying to figure out what would fit Andrew's style and be fun to animate. The result screamed of animation potential. It then basically animated itself and asked to be put on newgrounds.



"I seriously doubt that that variety and range of tones comes from one phone"
"In normal life, wouldn't the tones cover his voice?"
"Did he do that on a real phone?"
The answer to one of these is no.
"I can't hear the tones or one of the guys. What's going on?"
That's because you only have half of the stereo! Plug in earphones and enjoy!
"Is there a sequel coming?"
"Dude! what were you on?"
I'm very proud to say I did this under the influence of inspiration, MC PANTS' talent, enthusiasm, friend support, and maybe some coffee.




Rated 5 / 5 stars


Simply the best thing to hit Newgrounds in ages. Congrats to the animator, the songwriter, and whoever it was who requested that this be made.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

awesome and so what?

this is possibly the best ever to happen to mankind and to the guy who posted before me: he didnt rip it off of the ucb because he takes request's so if anybody ripped it off it was the guy who requested it

thank you and good night

Not original, stop calling this guy a genius...

Upright Citizens Brigade did this in their second or third season. I smell a ripoff. Not that this was bad.

sunsneezer responds:

You are the second one to point that out. I can assure you no intentional ripping off is going on and that I had the idea on my own. A guy singing to the touchtone is such a simple and, yes, obvious idea that I wouldn't be surprised if there are other instances of this joke elsewhere.
