:star: UPDATE!!! :star:
Cigarette has now moved! hahaha I was in blatant violation of the site's music policies...OOPS! ^^; So if you want to see Cigarette, you'll now have to see it HERE!!!!!!.......

:star::star::star: [link] :star::star::star:

I'm really sorry about the mess and hopefully this will work lol. Thanks to everyone who left nice comments and faved it though! Much :heart: to all viewers! :D


This is a little music video I did for the Ben Folds Five classic "Cigarette". I submitted it to a while back and figured I may as well put it up here. The loading screen is just static, so give it a second as it's rather big...but it'll load up, trust me haha. Anyway, ENJOY!

"Fred Jones was worn out from caring for his often
Screaming and crying wife during the day, but
He couldn't sleep at night for fear that she,
In a stupor from the drugs that didn't ease the pain,
Would send the house ablaze
With a cigarette."
-Ben Folds Five

this is an AMAZING piece of animation to go with a wonderful wonderful song. this must have taken you ages! i love his expression when he finds her on the sofa, just the small changes in his face. and the fridge pictures turning to doctors appointments is a really clever idea! you are extremely talented.

hey, that's some really awesome work. nice runs, but the real eye-opener for me is when he knocks his head against the wall, and the way his expression changes there.

wow, its not very often you see a flash animation with such attention to detail and an actual story, beautiful. It makes me want to bust out my old actionscripting hands and give a go at some animation. Thanks for this, I loved it.

I absolutely love this. Great animation...gorgeous!
Naniel Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2007
I remember watching this animation a long time ago, and altogether, it really struck in my mind. You did a wonderful job on it, the details in all of the backgrounds, and you can really feel his panic as he searches around the house for her. Wonderful choice of music too. Great job. :)

Holy flying pumpkins Batman...
Normally when I'm going through someones gallery, I restrict myself to only commenting on one picture, or else I'll sound repetitive and creepy...
But I had to comment on how absolutely wonderful this song is, and, is there more to this song because its just so beautiful...?
