This was very spontaneously brought to my attention while I was looking through this week's past flash submissions. The title suggests a very casual tone along with a simplistic yet intriguing array of moral and meaning. Due to my incredible interest in what this movie could contain, I am now here.
The first thing I noticed was the animated preloader you placed in the beginning. It showed me an interest in taking over Newgrounds and calling it your own. This spoke to me. A message of power vibrated from the screen which told me that you knew who you were dealing with. As if you could grasp the community of Newgrounds in one hand, and change their ideology in a way which showed them you were in charge. A message saying that you were the boss. An obvious attempt at intimidating your audience into a cold submission of attention. A bold tactic to say the least.
Following the view of the eccentric preloader, I was introduced to a odd sight. I saw what seems to be an African American sumo wrestler surrounded by corporate logos. At first I was quick to judge this as a poor attempt at humor, however I am never one to overlook brilliance. When I see something has a deeper meaning, I am unnaturally quick to notice it.
What I saw was a demonstration of rebellion against the conditions and effects of fast food. A stand was taken against the consequences this type of business which has caused many health problems to people around the globe. The motif gesture, "Hey there, whats up.", signifies a casual statement made by an everyday person. Thus representing how the common man who is effected by these grieving measures of sale. The man under the text is shown as an overweight, obviously disgruntled individual who is not satisfied with his own character. One can conclude his figure was tarnished by the effects of the products surrounding him. They surround him in a way which suggests he can find no way out of the pit he has dug himself into. As if the influence of fast food has left him swirling in a pit of everlasting dissatisfaction.
I must say that this piece really spoke to me in a way which changed my feelings about fast food entirely. That consuming such garbage would render me half the person I would otherwise be. It really makes you think about what you are putting into your own body and if you could really afford to do so. The only thing I have left to say is that I have nothing but admiration for your cause. I wish you the best in your future endeavors. Hopefully this world will one day b cleansed of such debauchery.
