I belive it was Pj member Geti.

Tpoe (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 6/1/2011 16:49

 I really liked the sonic tiles in this, whoever did those, amazing job. The whole video was amazing.

Mis-BUG (Level 9 Boss) @ 5/29/2011 03:42

I can only worship the awesomeness behind this video...

Adcrusher (Level 6 Major) @ 5/28/2011 16:11

This video is awesome! I've watched  it like 10 times and  I counted around 30 refrences to video games. I also noticed in the beginning there are three people, and then when they are singing at the jazz bar/club another one appears!


Edit: I figured it out! the cat winks at them and then he turns into the fourth person!

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 5/28/2011 12:27

I love the mish-mash of animation and video games and even a great catchy song to boot! Congrats to all involved.

FrankieSmileShow (Level 6 Manager) @ 5/27/2011 17:53

Working on this was pretty cool! The end result is badass.

Kudos fellas, I was working on an 8bit animation this weekend.
So this cheered me up for not winning the local animation contest. <3

 I'm showing this vid to my friends these days and we all love it :)

Demon11777 (Level 5 Captain) @ 5/24/2011 23:43

I have tried to see it another way but no matter how many times I watch this video I see a dick slap at 1:19. Any thoughts? xD

EDIT: Okay! it was hard to notice but I saw a mushroom land on his junk.  It makes sense now 

Argyle (Level 6 Manager) @ 5/24/2011 20:18

I'm going to latch onto Mike Scott's walls  like a plecostomus to learn his thought process secrets. He gets so much work done and timelines like a classic animator, I really respect it :P


Delicious (Level 9 Boss) @ 5/24/2011 19:46

Woah, really nice job guys!

Jinn (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/24/2011 19:44
