EDIT: Sweet merciful hams. Thank you thank you thank you thank you for the front page, NG. Thank you sooooooooo much. You all rock.

It's that guy that made that dumb pony cartoon bringing you something completely different. And by completely different I mean it's exactly the same as everything else but everything is completely different. Are you excited yet? Because you should be.

Back in the month of August, in the mystical land of Florida, a totally rad group of rapping pirates asked me if I had what it took to make a three and a half minute long music video in less than a month. After an intense two week grind of animating and growing a beard, this was the result. If you like the music, go let them know on their youtube channel. They're pretty great people.

Technical stuff: This was animated beginning to end over a two week period at 12fps with flash puppets. The BGs aren't the greatest, and I apologize for that. I would have gone back to spruce up the BGs but I simply haven't had time with me boosting my portfolio and working on solo projects, but again, this was a two week animation sprint and I'm very proud of what I did. Rough storyboards and BGs were provided by my brother, Scott DeWitt. Without him, this simply would not have gotten done. Mad props.

On a side note, I want to publicly thank Captain Dan Dolan and his crew for this amazing opportunity. If you hadn't asked me to do this, I probably wouldn't have gained the momentum to keep animating like I am right now. You guys are awesome.

PS: Sorry for the huge file size. Dunno how I pulled that off. Also the youtube version is better. Less chuggy and some content is missing because I have no idea where the polished version ran off to. But you probably won't notice :(

Sweet loved it, music was catchy and i think the animasion was sweet too. keep up the good work.

Discrimination against Japanese?!

I loved it. Great animation. Umm, but no, M-Trogdor-98, there's shouldn't be a Luffy vs Naruto version of this because Luffy isn't a pirate. Pirates steal from and kill the innocent, raid merchant ships, etc. Luffy never does that ever; he even fights off pirates to help the innocent out. The only way he could be considered a pirate is that he sails under a jolly roger (pirate flag). Despite what he THINKS he is, he is really only a pirate wanna-be. The closest thing to a pirate he can be classified as is an outlaw.

Martial artists are better than ninjas anyways

Your second flash and you're still going on strong.

There should be a Luffy Vs. Naruto version of this.

Can't wait to see what you upload next.

woooooooooooo best ever

they call us ninga haters ohhhhhhh
