This is still technically a work in progress, but I figure it's about 99% done. Criticisms are still welcome, but I probably won't be doing any major changes at this point.

Enjoy?

(Note, this is big; give it a minute to load. The Youtube version will be a lot smaller and load faster.)

I especially like the swimming pool in the cargo bay (for the giant squid?)

This will be hard to beat for the Drabblecast Talent Show/Contest currently in planning. Oops did I say that out loud?

You found it? Give it back!

Seriously, though. I don't think Norm's songs are really meant for video. I don't think the video really adds anything to it. I just want it to be funny enough that it doesn't detract from the song. Going on the theory that something can't be "viral" unless it has a video component, I just want a video component good enough to keep people listening to the song.

Nice work, dawg. I love it!

If you honestly want suggestions, I saw three things that seemed to not quite fit, IMHO. The addition of the segway bled into the "more ringtone than china has chinese" and didn't quite make sense. The first version w/o segway was perfect, IMHO.

The last two are on the shuttle launch. Since the video is so grainy, it's kinda hard to make the wheels and exhaust system work, but the pinstriping was awesome! I think it might be enough on it's own.

Either way, great job!

Yeah. I was trying to think of things that were stupid, outrageous luxuries, I figured a device that walks over flat surfaces for you would qualify. "Why walk on the sidewalk when a machine can walk for you?!" Kind of obscure, though.

I think that won the internet. Game over, chumps!

Well, okay. Nobody seems to have any big criticism, so I guess I'll go ahead and give it a final once over to fix a few little bugs. I'll try and think of something to replace the segway, but it will probably be left in. (If I just take it out, it leaves an awkward hole in the timing.)

Hey, Norm, does Drabblecast have a You Tube account or should I use mine? (Or both!)
