    Amazing! An honor to flat design.

    • i like the scenes where the character moves in front of and behind other things, suddenly giving it unexpected depth

    Jeff, I remember when you were so nerding out about the sequel to that video that featured a bouncing naked guy flailing his arms and sliding up stairs. What was that called?

    Anyways, point is, I am so nerding out about this. So many good things to talk about. From the letter switch opening to the perspective changes; the chair switch sequence, with the rotating down stool. The synced music. This is good man. thanks for the post.
