Hey Pit,

I need your help. My girlfriend entered this competition on YouTube and if she wins, we will get two nights alone in an expensive hotel......

This is where you guys come in. All I need you to do is watch her video (which is only 26s long) and vote for it. Now, you don't need a YouTube account for this. You simply need to watch the video and click on the green 'thumbs up' that appears over the video towards its conclusion. That is all.

I know this is a lot to ask from the Pit, but we don't get to spend a lot of time with one another and if she were to win this competition (which she can) it would mean a hell of a lot to both of us.

The link is posted below. And yes, the entire thing is her own work (including the music).

PS: A big thanks to everyone who has voted . You are all legends.

I'm gonna be honest, the idea was nice, but that animation was HORRIBLE. It's not conveying simplicity, it's conveying the fact that you can't draw and are using "simplicity" as an excuse to not have to try harder.

I voted anyway, but damn, try a little harder than putting a half hour's work in Flash next time.

Hmm, I think you're grossly underestimating how painstaking and time consuming the animation process really is. Especially when it's all drawn using only a mouse.

Thanks for the vote, though.

Edit: Note I didn't do this animation; the entire thing was my girlfriend's work.

oh believe me, I know how time consuming it is to animate things (I've worked professionally in the animation industry), but even with limited equipment, you can turn out better results than this by putting a more effort into it.

Don't get me wrong, it's a cute clip, the music's nice and the idea is cute, the only thing that bothers me is the animation itself. everything else is really cute and sweet.

It's not THAT hard with Flash. It's a very simple tool to use even with a mouse. Hell just raising the frame rate on that animation would make it look better.

I understand where you're coming from, and I can only imagine the standard that is required in the professional industry. I also imagine that you watching this clip would be akin to me watching a junior guitar ensemble play - sure, it's cute, and they got the groove but it probably sounds god-awful.

However, I think you may be expecting a little too much from someone that has just made their second animation in the little spare time that they have, and is not ashamed to admit that they have limited artistic ability.

Having said that I do thank you profusely for your vote

It was bad, it did nothing to advertise the product


It's actually not supposed to. I know the name distinctly says Cadbury Advert but it's actually made as part of the Cadbury "Smooth Moves" competition in which you're supposed to show off "smooth moves" (however you interperet that to be).

My girlfriend and I are both very grateful for all the voting that has taken place so far

So much so that she is contemplating joining the UG community now

That was a really great animation. Cutesy art style, and fitting music.

It's got my thumbs up.

If they wanted to see "smooth moves", you should send them a video of what you would do to your girlfriend in that hotel room.

I didn't vote because I think the best should win, not the one with most friends. And I was too lazy to look up all the other contest entries.
The animation itself was cute but I feel like I've seen an animation like this too many times already.
