Hacking The U.S. Election

This must be my first ever political animation. I never really bought the hacking allegations so TheRebel.media's original video especially charmed me. Then I figured, why not animate to it? I've been working on it on and off since January. The song that plays in the background should be "Farewell of Slavianka".

Seems like a link to the original video might be a useful include in the description, seeing as we don't have those YT click-overs here yet? Nicely animated, though was expecting more of a punchline at the end. Zooming in on the picture of Putin and a dolphin... awkwardly entertaining, sort of...? Unless there's a joke I'm missing there. Good stuff though.

I stayed very true to the original video, which uses the same joke at the end. It amused me personally because Putin is always portrayed to be a scary and emotionless ex-KGB boogeyman. The dolphin picture appears to show a side to Putin I'm not used to seeing here in the west. A little anti-climactic one could say? I don't think I've ever seen other world leaders swim with dolphins before either lol, it's a little bizarre. The audio was ripped from the original video and I decided against adding new sound effects (take it as a spin on the whole Game Grumps animated culture we have here). I'll be sure to link to the original video in the comments section now.

Loved it! The Russian matrix also made me laugh heheh

Whirlguy responds:

Hey thanks man! Glad you liked the matrix. It took quite some time to make that haha.
