If it’s not a dream, then I’m freaking out
These lips are stained crimson and my skin is pale like a clown

I fell into chemicals, my pigment was rearranged
You made us a madman and I’m trapped inside our brain
You’re killing for nothing now with a chilling laugh
I'm telling you that I’m coming back

Living in dreams, a good guy’s here past the Glasgow smile
I’m in your subconscious, like the Red Hood’s in exile
But soon I’m gonna get away

You’re wasting your time, chasing bats just to try and look mean
But overall, you’re just Ted Bundy with a stand-up routine

I can’t forget Jeanie’s death, though it’s been years
Got caught by the dark night, then in a moment I disappeared
But now you’re the CEO and I’m a stooge
I'm telling you that I’m breaking loose

Living in dreams, a good guys here past the Glasgow smile
I’m in your subconscious, like the Red Hood’s in exile
But soon I’m gonna get away



Rated 4 / 5 stars

I liked it quite a bit, a fun video. Good work on both fronts, music and animation.

I always find it interesting when there's a story of what it would be like if a comic book hero/villain swapped sides, even if for a little while.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Not your best work, but I saw on YouTube that Smashyclaw wrote the script so I can't fault you so much if that is true. I did like this one a lot better than Claustrophobia though. It felt more involved and emotional than a single joke like that one. I'm not that into Batman so I didn't understand most of the references here, but the song was original and catchy. As I said, I've seen much better animations from you but with the length of the video some corners had to be cut. The characters and art style were faithful interpretations of what little of Batman I've seen. I especially liked the short section where it flashed between all of the different versions of the Joker!

I missed Magfest this year, so hopefully you go to the next one as well! Thanks for the video, I look forward to your next game parody!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Well the graphics where ok, the audio was nice and clear and the animation was good. It looked like you put a lot of time in this and overall I enjoyed it a lot. Keep up the good work!
