Reviews for "SAJ2016: Building Rage"

it was good

Whirlguy responds:

...Or was it? O:

Come on wrecking ball truck is the perfect mascot for the show, how else will the kids learn about death!?

Whirlguy responds:

Serious lack of vision, I agree.

A funny animation about construction.

Whirlguy responds:

Pretty much :D

This is going to be a 9/11 joke, isn't it?

Post-watching impression:
Oh, well I was wrong. Nothing really interesting, but I was wrong. Is this supposed to be a parody of something? Because if so, I don't know what it's supposed to be talking about. All it really says is that a children's show about living buildings being killed would be a bad idea. Which, yeah, it would be, so why even state it in the first place? It just takes something that's obvious and states that it's obvious, so there's no real joke. This could be cleverly pave the way for better punchlines, but as it is, it just falls flat.

Overall, I think I know what you're going for, a kind of Family Guy-like cutaway gag that milks a ridiculous scenario, but the initial set up is either not there or too short. In other words the rug isn't done being knitted before it's yanked from under our feet, so it unravels instead of flipping us onto our ass. All the pieces for a good short are there, they just need to be tweaked.
