Great Stuff!

Very intriguing.

Nice animation, the audio... is it actually taken from a real thing or did you do it? It's funny either way. I like the way you animated the character movements, very nice and expressive, and the right amount of over-the-top dumb for this. The lipsyncing, though, needs work. I like the way you did the pauses, but the opening line has his mouth open too wide, not fitting as he's speaking fairly restrainedly and quietly.
Overall, nice animation and some funny weirdness humor. Keep it up!

Yes, it is a real thing, shot back in the 70s.

Solid as hell, almost 5 stars
