My first thoughts exactly (minus the shrug).

Anyhow, I wonder who put the flip-book together?

I can honestly say that that was the first time I've seen that video. And I only made it half way through.

Who says pointless can't also be awesome?

Awesome find! So much time on their hands.

I'm okay with this.

It's a well-drawn flipbook, but the video editing sucks.

Amazing. They spent all that time drawing stupid pictures on pads of paper and then they film it with a shiatty webcam.

It looks rotoscoped to me, which makes it a little less awesome in my book.

Possibilities:
A) Someone drew this, page by page and put flip book together
B) Someone rotoscoped this and printed out pages and put flip book together
C) Someone rotoscoped this and sufficiently advanced technology indistinguishable from magic to me happened onto a single blank flip book
D) The flip book wasn't real either
E) Instead only try to realize the truth. It is not the book that flips, only yourself.

Given how tech advances, is there any reason to think the flip book was anything other than blank pieces of paper, which had the rotoscoped video played/sync'd/framed on top of it?

(My wag: the sides of the flip book with ink bleeds from the drawings is better evidence the flip book was not blank than the pages themselves.)

What is the evidence this was not rotoscoped? It would suck to have drawn this out by hand only to have all of the world, think, as I did, A-Ha!

I agree it is one of these, likely. Any way you slice it, it represents a considerable amount of time spent.

The movement of fabric and hair seem a little too flowing to not have been traced. Timing too crisp despite issues with flipping pages at a set rate.

Somewhere, an office manager wonders WTF happened to all the note pads... and, why production is down for one specific asshat.

The difference between me and the maker of that video, is that I only just wasted 3 minutes and 45 seconds of my life.

Much better take on that song.

Farking cool.

In related news, the original video is close to passing 1.25 billion views.
