So, prior to starting work on this, I was just watching some old toons, and I watched "I Got No Money" and looking back, it wasn't the best I could do. So, I decided to do a remake with the disco version. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this video, and if not, at least more than my first attempt at this song ;)

Not bad.
The animation and art could use some work, but overall it was actually very smooth and you synced the music perfectly. Maybe next time you do a music video, don't reuse the same stuff for each time the chorus comes. Try to think of something fresh for each refrain.
That's my two cents.

Didn't like the song, but, the animation was great. Superb.

Normally I would complain about using a song by Parry Gripp, since his songs are waaay overused and childish, though since this is a remake of something you've already done and doesn't have anything to do with the actual animation, I'll disregard that, I guess.

So I'll review the shots you chose and the overall execution, which is basically 50% of a music video, the other half being the music which I already covered.

Some shots such as him looking through the window and breaking the piggy bank were very well done. Though, a good portion of this music video was re-using the same scenes over and over again.

Granted, this is one of those songs that are very "literal" and you can animate everything it says. Though, with these types of music videos, usually by the halfway point instead of repeating your scenes, something new happens.

The repeats of the unoriginal scenes like him pulling out his pockets or just tweening him around the screen and showing us how moneyless he is could easily be replaced by something more creative. Say, him looking for money? Or him mourning over the losses that resulted from him not having money?

Music videos don't need to have direction, but they usually don't repeat. These are all tips, hope you take these into consideration for any of your future music videos.

Also, when it takes me back to the first screen when it's done and shows that annoying ad, it basically doesn't go away and I can't click 'Play' after.

so 3/5

loved it! the thing that was in my mind tho was that your logo is identical to cartoon network so you'd have to change it to be able to really go big. loved every part of this

Outstanding, I loved the song and for your age the animation is great, I see a good future for you!.
And the part with the Iphone, you should've animated that because it's quality is bad.
But still I like your style of animation and I hope to see more.
