This flash is basically a summary of Political Ads in America. In each commercial, I learned nothing about the candidate they were supporting, but I learned a shit ton of bad things about their opponent; whether the information was true or not.

I hate Politics; don't you?

PS: Be careful; it might get loud.

Edit: Changed the preloader a bit and fixed a few things.

Edit: Thank you for the front page! Sorry gaiz hafta see anotha political ad mai bad :C

This is political satire done right!

Rather than the same stale, one-sided, boring snoozefests that sums up most political cartoons on this site; you, Sardonic Samurai, have opted to actually innovate by making fun of the ads on TV. It's concise, objective, and actually satirizes unlike certain people's cartoons on here (Not going to mention any names). The only other flash movies that have done that are The Kubby Chronicles, and YAAFM. Now, let's get started shall we?

When it comes to art and animation, for a cartoon with a small filesize, you did a good job drawing and animating it. Plus, it isn't often that you see a frame-by-frame cartoon under a megabyte that isn't from Noiserover. It may not be the best, but it gets the point across. As for your sound, nice use of Audio portal music, which at times usually isn't fitting for any type of Flash. However, those songs you selected fit the parts perfectly. The voice acting, while not up to snuff with Malamite-ltd or Chris Zito, is still good for one guy best known for being a moderator. Contentwise, I have to say that this was pretty funny with how you timed both the sight gags and the voices, which isn't easy. I bet if you kept working on your direction, you could be top 50 material someday. However, when we pull to the fireplace scene, it started to drag a bit. Of course, also worth noting is the aforementioned filesize, I think a lot of people on here ought to consider learning how to properly optimizing their flash. I mean, I've seen flash that have huge filesizes, but have little-to-no animation at all. (Any of those Motion comic flashes come to mind.)

What I liked:
-Concise, Objective, and actually satirizes
-Good art and animation
-Good voice acting
-Nice song selection
-Good direction and pace
-Small filesize

What I didn't like:
-Tended to drag at the end.

Overall: Here's an eight out of ten for something that actually qualifies as satire, Steve.

"I know how you feel about those political ads"

Those negative yet repetitive ads drove me nuts. That's why I don't understand politics at all.

An accurate political commentary!

Seems politicians are more concerned with making each other look bad, rather than actually making them selves useful!
Well done! Loved the animation, and the humour was good. Keep up the good work!

this is so true

politicians don't really focus on the issues as much as they focus on thier opponents short commings. it's time for a change.
