"Speakonia, a music video, and music by Songs To Wear Pants To? By Poseidon, this is nearly too good to be true! After reading this sentence full of pirate innuendos, embark on a salty voyage upon the sea of Flash with a boat of Lawlolawl."


Its good

But when this takes over Tarboy/Last of the dashkins and other BRILLIANT animations in the chart, it just doesn't really work out?


Songs great but the lack of any real animation is ABIT of a let down. Top notch quality everywhere else though.

ACK! Beat me to it!

I was planning on making a video to this song myself, but looks like you did it first. Wasn't quite what I got from the song, but it was still entertaining.


its funny but annoying as hell


It pains me to say it, but I agree with SomeGuyChokingACat. I found this song more entertaining before the video. The fantastic imagery of ROBOT FREAKING PIRATES SHAKING IT LIKE A STICK WITH A DEAD GUY ON IT just isn't done justice by the pixel art. I'm always happy to hear this and it's interesting to see Lawlolawl's interpretation... but I really think this song deserves a better (unofficial?) video.

As for actual constructive criticism: the animation style, though cute, does not match this song. It's gangsta-pirate robot rap, yo! Chubby pastel pixelbots are not convincing gangsta-pirate robot rappers, yo! But okay, that could be personal taste, fair enough. What this animation needs is more of the song's wit: why is the "I spoke to him in binary a-a-aand he underthtood!" line reduced to a stream of binary digits flowing from the pixel hole of a pixelated kitten? Where are the sight gags? Where are the characters? Barring that, why is there so little animation and why is it not synchronized?

Again, I don't want to be too critical of this. I realize it's being provided for free and, further, I am a talentless hack. Nonetheless, this song is awesome and it deserves an awesome video. I hope the 'official' tag on this video doesn't discourage that an "even more" awesome video from being made.
