I used to think this song was super intellectual. Though it never sat with me right that the 2nd verse was clearly the best, and it should have each verse be a buildup, more extreme than the last, more clever than the last. But now I think the whole song is rather pathetic. There ARE some things you can know. And that's why science works. To say everything you know is wrong, to NEVER accept anything as the correct answer, both for the scientific answers to basic questions about the universe and for moral relativism, to just sit there and throw your hands in the air and say you can't really know anything, is to always give the bad ideas a key to replacing the good ones, to put the ideas that are known to be bad on equal footing with the good ones, to say they're all equally valid. And that's not an intellectual or enlightened position. That's BS. Some ideas ARE superior to others. I'm sure the floating disembodied head of Colonel Sanders would agree with me, if it wasn't busy haunting empty pizza boxes. Probably from pizza hut. Yuk brands.
But this is the best animation I ever saw of it. I remember seeing it on albinoblacksheep in 2009. I had seen another one earlier on youtube that wasn't as good. This flash artist didn't make the song so he doesn't lose rating points for the song's drawbacks and it's a good candidate to be fun to animate I'm sure, and he animated it about as well as it could be animated, true to the meaning and intent of the song, flawed as that may be.
To tell you the truth. I always wanted to watch this. When I first heard this, I remember trying to think of what this would look like. And it was a little more dark, when what you just gave, was a more playful show. Seriously YEARS growing up and then finally watching. When I thought I would have too bring out my crazy too make it. Thank you for taking the time and letting the sanity go a little too bring this out. It was nice too watch finally watch.
It's animated awesomely next to an awesome song! I wonder if Weird Al has seen this ...
I haven't seen this video in some years and I forgot how angry it makes me. Pretty much a classic for me, and I always love the way you animate mouths. Really fun, even after all these years. (That flashing bit tho, talk about yikes!) Anyhow, I guess I'm off to sample your more recent stuff. Keep being great, pal.
This whole movie is ust one complete episode of randomness. Flying bacon, people ripping their faces off, car crashes, cows flying by, a clash of graphical styles, the circulating banana, portals, hah, the animation just keeps changing. All the time! So much creativity packed in this, and it syns perfectly too the music as well. Great work!
