The Pokémon Are Coming!
Took four hours, but I'm pretty pleased. I thought about going back and fixing the tail-end of the trick, but then I remember that this is ytmnd and no one cares. I'll probably comment more on the work below; it tested my skills quite a bit.

First off, the original site is 2MB image and 1 MB song so I decided to cut the colors on the image to reduce it to 1MB. I think it's of just fine quality.

The audio was pretty hard for me because I've never done anything like this before, chopping of a voice. My only real experience matching sound to music is my previous jack black YTMND.

Some parts of the blabber you will swear are original unless you listen to the plain clip in contrast. For the video I was starting to get really exhausted, so it suffers in places where you're less likely to look closely, except the back of the truck on

the close-up. Overall I'm very proud of the work as a whole; in fact, it's my favorite, and I just might give it a 5, assuming a stranger made it.

lol someone *just* downvoted all my sites. I have 10 or so votes per site and I lost almost half a star on all such sites since the last comment. Go figure. =\

Oh, one last thing: If you look closely you can see that, like the original, the truck's side is made up of a bunch of lights. Putting together the billboard, turning it into lights, and adding proper quality blurs and motion blurs was a lot of fun.

The 'What do you like to play?' on the background is just -perfect-. The rest seems a little out of place compared to it, though it's still good.
April 25th, 2006

Thank you all so much for your feedback; it is even more appreciated than the votes. The background was going to be looped the whole song, so I spent the most time on it. It's quieter and has a reverb on it so it's closer in timbre to the "holidays are co

As I apporached the 2 hour mark I was both at the end of the audio (so I had to start using whatever), and getting tired of the effort, so I decided to rapidly break cosby down into nonstop rambling, which was easier. I might go back and fix the audio, I

Adding channel after channel of cosby doesn't make funny. Remixing it professional might. Here's a hint: if there's more than twelve thousand things happening at once, generally it's going to sound more like noise than music
April 25th, 2006
(0)
Thanks for the feedback Adverb. There's just the full plain cosby in front and the quieter reverb'd "what..." in back, which I thought worked better since the original song has 2 vocal lines. At the end it's supposed to sort of devolve into a cacophony of
April 25th, 2006

cosby-ism, so I'm not to worried. Still, I'll consider cutting vocal frequency or something out of the original song next time to improve coherency. Thanks again to all the comments, I love to hear specific feedback.

this is pretty awesome. the ONE THING that would make it perfect is somehow having a closeup of the truck with cosby inside, with a big grin on his face. Also, maybe honking his horn or something.

jimmyjamesbobx: I FAV!'d this site because it's the only one of all of mine that I would give a 5, were it someone else's. I encourage everyone to check my FAV! list, as it's sort of built into a portriat of YTMND in general, instead of simply a list of 6s.

June 2nd, 2006

As for all the complaints that I rant on continuously: I see the site profile is sort of a "special features" section outsite the actual YTMND, so this is my chance to include director's commentary. I don't quite inderstand why someone would lower their vote because of it, so I'm not going to change it. Finally, I feel it's worth noting that sponsorship got this on the top 15 the next day - the only of my sites to achieve the honor (as far as I know) a 2nd time. Sponsoring good sites gets top 15 apparently.

I was looking at various votes by all sort of random people and I noticed a lot of binary voters (I got a ytmnd about that BTW). I guess it's no surprise that the useful feedback tends to come from the 2-4 comments. What I find odd, however, is that while there's some good feedback from the 5s, of all the 1s on all of my sites, hardly any of the comments would be considered useful feedback by anyone. This really bothers me because the 1s are the votes I am most eager to improve.

I like it. But I pretty much like all Cosby.

3rd day in top 15 (2nd in a row), and on www.ptkfgs.com... and not even on a new site! This is incredible; I am overwhelmed by the influx of e-points I have been awarded. There will always be detractors, unfortunately. I try to pay for the bandwidth YTMND gives me by sponsoring my own site, and it gets a 1; Similarly I'm confident that nearly all - if not all - the of the 1s I got for FAV!ing this would be upped had anyone bothered READING my favorites list.

I believe that extensive commentary on a YTMND is like director's commentary on a DVD movie; if you just want the content, fine, don't read the rest. But some people like myself are genuinely interested to read how people work on this stuff, and I only wish more creators would follow suit. If my rating suffers slightly (and there's no evidence that it does), it's a small price to offer the option to my fellow users. This whole site's about showing stuff to other people, after all.

I would like to see some Pokemon YTMNDs that have no Cosby. Pretty Good, though. Downvoters Suck. And they have bad spelling.

not a huge fan of the audio after the first 15 seconds or so, also don't really like the self promoting comments by author... if you want to "share" how you created this with others, cut out the "i worked so hard..." "all of my effort..." "x number of days in top 15!" ... we get it already.

Oh my god shut up about yourself please. 1'd now, wasn't before. You're so over the top I suspect you are a gimmick, but that might be my subconscious trying to maintain faith in humanity.

I agree. Please, just hush and enjoy the ride. You're ruining your own site.
