I am truly amazed at how wonderfully this holds up! The animation is great, especially for its time! It's just not one of my favorites. I guess it could have made a bit more of a statement. I still appreciate this for its message. The length is good too.
It's weird to see his wife be just as annoying as the boss. It's scary to think you're more free dead. The music sets the atmosphere well. I was not expecting that realistic animation at the end. Very clever.
A Funny Point
Quite nicely done I should add, the audio was probably the main feature in the video that continued the whole way through adding a nice suitability to the flash. It had a nice rythym to listen to the flash to. The animation was put in great quality, one of the most interesting formats of the year 2000 for a flash to look like kind of reminds me of the modern tarboy. The pace and sense of timing was great I was hoping it'd be a bit longer but of course that would probably drag things out far longer than neccessary. It had a fairly nice introduction to it with it showing him at his work getting nagged at constantly by what appears to be his bosses.
The little nagging noise got far to annoying to bear, then again that was sort of the point, it could have a little more scenes and discription to furthermore prove your point.
Keep up the great work here man, quite a funny flash and shows a funny yet true point about many people's lives at work just a little plain and simple with it showing the same scene throughout the whole flash.
I hope I don't bump into anyone when I say that, yes, we should definitely be anarchists in the Rothbardian sense...
I love this flash. It just shows how fucked up the bureaucratic system and the corporatist-statist economy has become. Though I don't really know anyone personally who's succumbed to suicide to escape their dead-end lives, I've heard stories from all around the world, and some people I do know have been tempted many times to just get away. Thanks for this. This is gonna send a huge message to a lot more people.
I can't believe that this is the future a lot, if not most parents these days want for their children...
I remember this back when it first was submitted. This flash should be considered a highly influential short. It kind of, in a short time, shows that: You really just need to do everything for yourself, cause you'll be screwed and abused if you don't.
LOL i made my sissy kiss my ass while watching this
