Reviews for "Smokin'"

great animation

good thing you cant smoke in bar's in Toronto.


Smoke all you want, but keep it outside my face.
I do very hate smokers walking in the sidewalk with me, other guys girll and little kids behind the smoker. Douche smokers indeed.

Thanks for the review...

Fortunately most smokers I know of are polite and don't push their smoke on ya, that's all I ever ask... [:

Good animation, douche song

Now I already know this review is going to get pegged by some goody-two-shoes but quite honestly, I don't give a shit.

Let's start with the bad first. I did not enjoy the song, To be honest, it was very douche-y and narcissistic. If you don't smoke, that's absolutely fine, but when you push your little anti-smoking agenda on others and try to force them to quit or peg them just because you don't like smoking, you travel into prick territory. It's their body, and they have the right to do whatever they like, who the fuck do you think you are to make fun of them? (and half of the "anti- smokers" have equally disgusting or unruly vices or habits) And if you don't like smokers, GET AWAY FROM THEM. If you see someone smoking, hold your breath and move. If your family member or friend smokes, don't hang around them as much. Simple solutions for dumb selfish problems. Not to mention it becomes an addiction. Would you walk to a suffering meth-head and tell them "meth is bad for you" or the same for a cocaine addict? Kick 'em while they're down why don't you.
Not to mention most of the points in the song were retarded and there's only like 5 chords total.

HOWEVER, you did not create the song and I guess it's your opinion in essence so I won't fault the flash rating for that.

Now the good part. The animation was stellar and very creative. It was extremely fluid, and I think I see the metaphor you were going for with the smoker being a "crock". *sigh*

I am reluctant and it is taking all of my will to give you this score, seeing as I thoroughly dislike the concept, but a good animator deserves his due. I will not be the man to deny you just based off my opposition in opinion. 8/10

My biggest disagreement with you is that the animation was stellar haha - I'll do better next time.

Now one thing you may want to realize is that the singer makes great efforts to be outlandish and extreme. For him, just a mild protest wouldn't be enough, he's going full-bore for maximum comic effect.

I didn't realize there were only 5 chords in the song. I can't even count that high.

Thanks for the good rating despite your inclinations. I can guarantee my next animation will be a lot more neutral and nonconfrontational! :)

Oh the reality

This goes to my fav gallery!
I've never ever ever ever smoked. Such a waste of money to kill yourself slowly.

vakavadesigns responds:

Thanks for your review! And for favoriting... and for not smoking...

Thank you.

I absolutely hate smokers. I hate being around their shit smoke, and you can't "walk around it". I can stand three feet away and still catch and sniff that stuff in my face. It's unhealthy, and it's disrespectful when you do it around other people who don't smoke.

Second hand smoke is killer (and not a "crock"), and I'd rather keep my lungs clean so I can breathe easier.

Do what you want. Nobody said we had to approve of it.
