awsome. yea, you're right, this is great use of the technology. using it to animate, using art principles, having some texture. not just sticking blindly with flat colors and abusing color intensity.

All true.

The colors were especially nice, and it was very refreshing to see flash animation done traditionally. The opening background and truck-in with the sparkling chandelier was beautiful.

However, I really wish it would have been funny instead of over-the-top perverted. I like dirty jokes as much as the next guy, but it really helps if the jokes are clever and inventive or have some form of wit behind them.

A devil fucking a duck through the head... ha ha?

An octopus fingering a dogs pussy.. hilarious.

Let's not stop there and have a giraffe grope the titties of the Chicken from "Daffy Duck In Hollywood." Comedy gold.

Now granted, the song does have dirty lyrics.. but would it have hurt John K to actually get creative and think about some actual jokes to put into the cartoon? Maybe I'm insane, but I don't think Joe Average finds cartoon animals fucking eachother especially hilarious.

Oh well.

Well it's fifty six seconds long, and considering the song's content, I think it all works very well together.
There are many wonders explored. Like have you ever noticed how long a giraffes tongue is? I have, and found this video quite elucidating on the subject.
I had no idea that a devil child born through a rabbit kissing a rock star, could then procreate with the brain of a duck. I say, This film is educational!
But mainly, seeing Flash used as an animating tool instead of a short cut, was very refreshing for my eyes.
