Really enjoyed it, the end didn't really tie it for me though. Why would she throw him the gun when he's clearly conscious and able to use it. Other than that, superb effort, Love the colours.
Stick animations have come a long way in the last 10 years.
And this is at the pinnacle of that.
Interesting point, but a bit hypocritical Illwill.
Though I agree with your argument, that thing about people not putting effort into their content and youtube being an outlet for creative people to have a voice, but being muffled by all the shit etc etc. I have to point something out:
How hard was it to make this animation? I mean really.
Photoshop image of tvs
Import photoshop background
Move pitch slider up
Paste movieclip of foamy waving arms, bobbing up and down and ranting.
Paste audio clip
Draw stop sign (it's new I'll give you credit)
Do a bit of syncing
Export as .swf

A lot of youtube vlogs require more effort than you put into foamy, and deserve the fame they get (SxePhil is a great example), and a lot of better animations get less exposure than you get. I think you should count yourself lucky, and steer clear of this topic, because you're closer to being part of the problem than being a victim.
You've done it again.
Man, I've shown so many of my friends Chuck's New Tux, and Misinterpretive Porn Star, but this one blows even those masterpieces away, I laughed heartily at.. well.. the punch lines obviously. That was awesome, you thought of a joke and made it yours, while still throwing in a few extra funnies in aside from the obvious one.
Nice work, man, keep it up!
You don't need to improve on it anywhere as far as animating goes, though I think I could hear a little bit of an echo when the bruiser guy was speaking before the crash landing, maybe just make sure your voice actors are in a consistent acoustic environment. Other than that it was top notch.
Really disappointed about something though, I see your file is 9.6MB and you say you reduced it from FBF to tweens to fit in the file size... 10MB is the default maximum, you should have just e-mailed tom fulp, linking to a preview of the animation, you would have got it bumped up to 20MB within a day no questions asked with that quality of work.
The storyline was great, the characters were great, the humour was decent, and the visuals were stunning. Though when the red guy (really sorry for not remembering their names by the way) was killing those soldiers, you opted for an explosion rather than actually seeing them all dying, though you had previously shown violence. I think you could have really come up with something else there.
Other than that, great work, I'm glad to see a little bit of sci-fi back on newgrounds, as there's not really that much anymore, and I'm looking forward whatever comes next in this series.
Nice work, mate!
After all these years.
Still a goddamn classic.
And 9 million views!
That crap sucked ass.
When is the next one coming out?
Incredible, possibly the best animation on newgrounds so far.
This was awesome!
I didn't like TF2, and you basically covered all the reasons here, I mean, did Bay even stop to think 'why am i doing this part' 'does this have a point?' the whole thing turning to dust? the dude dying and coming back to life? Its like he read from the list of 'things an A list movie has' and just built his movie off a checklist.

Love it, short, great style, cool characters, had a plot, had good music, a good theme. I expected it to be more of a success story, but the ending was down to earth, so I have to appreciate that.
