I posted this up for my brother. All creation rights are his, but he was just too lazy to post it. And I thought it was too funny NOT to post ;). Enjoy the dynamic and totally awesome running box! The song is: Nightwish - Ghost Love Score

wow i saw it on 4chan and had to look it up for the song tell ur bro i said great job

Gloriously Simple.

Look at that little box. It's a very rare occasion that I get to see something so simple but so adorable. The art style is kind of reminiscent of minimalist web-cartoons, so you got points for that. Being that there really isn't much else to the movie, that's probably your strongest point.

The next best thing was the music. A really superb choice that reminded me of Pirates of the Caribbean. The irony of putting that song with the simple box was brilliant, and even a little humorous. You seemed to pull off a joke without even doing anything.

That being said, there's probably room for improvement. The dramatic cuts were nice, like zooming in on the box's face, but a little more animation would not have gone unnoticed. Maybe slow it down, or pan around; you wouldn't have to do much. As is, I really like it!

Never has a box gone so far.

Simple yet awsome, this is the nectar of newgrounds, great job!

Edit: A decade later I still come back to this for motivation.

I found a link to a separate swf of this and eventually the link died. I thought this was lost forever.
