Good, I guess

I would have liked to have some more animation for all of it cos i love that song.
But overall its good


Rated 4 / 5 stars


Man, this song has my toes a-tapping and my head a-bobbing! xD

Probably would have been better if there was a little more to the animation instead of just the alien-looking guy moving across the screen, though.

Overall, thumbs up! ^^

Okay, what is this?

I like this type of short-weird-and-nonsensical cartoons, but this is just stupid.

LoL I hadn't heard that in a while! Good song.

A goofy song put to a boring looping animation = Boring. What band is this? Give the band some credit.

So much more potential for a music video...

I'm dreadfully sorry, but this is way too redundant for my liking. The animation, despite being quite appropriate, is short and could have been done SO much better. In fact, if any decent artist could please redo this, it would be greatly appreciated.

seriously, this isn`t good..... crap is the word!

ok, this is my second review, and, surely i did a mistake by watching this video, so please be honest, and think if you're gonna give a 2 rating points to this....... this video doesn't deserve it.
that's my point

Nothing. Nothing at all.

Song is nice

But animation is repetitive and awful-looking.

Song is Start Wearing Purple by Gogol Bordello.

Great song, I love Gogol Bordello. But way to ruin it with such a shoddy animation.

I like that song cuz it makes me giggle and the artwork for your video is good but next time you make a video, have a bit more to it.

Cool Song...

... but since your animation was useless and very simplistic, so basically you have just stolen someone's song to increase your own popularity.

The point of these sites is to enrich the culture of the internet and of art (whether still or animation), not just to steal and exploit other people's work.

Interesting approach, fails to gather attention

The song is a wonderfully strange one that is markibly good for it's bizzareness, repitition, and catchyness. It is my impression that the purpose of this video was to do the same, but the lack of significance of the timing in the movements of the figure in the video leave much to be desired. I understand the approach, but I believe it has plenty of room for improvement. For instance, give the viewer some reason to continue watch the video after the figure has traveled across the screen a few times. It reminds me of leek spin, but the song is not quite entrancing enough to forgive the animation, and the figure is not appealing to the eyes or the mind.

wow true american some of your best work

the simple gradient in as a background was alright, the zombie moving his finger and going back in forth was pretty entertaining for the first minute, though the song is enjoyable it doesn't convince me to where purple.

if you add multiple flash loops together or give the songs a visual story i might bump my score some time. but for now ill keep voting to have you passing portal judgement by a hair.
