I felt that this animation was really good. It was simple, short, easy to understand and has a really message. If it had some music though i feel like it could have been a little better
Perhaps I can clarify
If I may, perhaps clarify this a bit, This flash movie is not about Hitler or the Nazi party. On the contrary it is about how the idea of Christmas and the holidays have been bastardized by the most powerful corporations who are trying to make money off of the brainwashed masses of our society who think that they need the best and newest toy or other kind of technology to make themselves happy. If we look back on history the Nazi party had massive amounts of propaganda, not only against the Jewish and other "non-arians", but also to make the people fall in line and use his government run economy to bolster the German economy. Adds during that time would have looked surprisingly similar to this one so that he could brain-wash his people into following his every whim. Long story short this flash is a work of art conceived by a genius who understands what out current society is doing to us, which is make us materialist slaves to commercial will.
Kudos to you Catoblepas for showing us this, in terms so plain and true that it's "negative message" is really just a true life critique of society's problems.
Thanks for that well-thought review. Sadly I keep getting these "thats was an epic fail" ones.

One of My Favorite Animations Yet.
I love this animation. The idea that one has to give up their childhood Innocence and their creative spirit, just to fit into a corporate society is, in my opinion, a very moving, and powerful message. The use of colors, or lack thereof in the case of those in the corporate society, is very symbolic of the blandness of our current society. Plus the main characters death, just to secure his innocence and individual spirit, is a powerful message that should open the mind of any free thinker to how people are turned into gray, lifeless beings just to fit in. Please keep up the good work because it's not everyday you find a flash with a powerful, modern day massage.
