Too Much Free Time

But... But... Piracy...

from the just-having-some-fun dept

You've probably seen those XtraNormal videos going around these days, where you type out a script and some text-to-speech software and animation software create a short video. I thought it might be fun to experiment with this to see what came of it. Here's my first attempt at a short video that I call "But... But... Piracy."
Yes, some of the dialog is silly, but all of it is based on claims that I've seen people actually use in these discussions.

    1.) don't use human models

    2.) don't use a music bed

    3.) simply the speech. You want the one pontificating to sound like a 15 year old who just read a biased article. You want the other to ask simple logical questions with a few retorts.

    4.) keep the text-to-speech less natural and more digitized.

    A good effort but you're trying to fit too many bullet points of the pro/anti piracy controversy. Just concentrate on the most moronic and easily debunked aspects of the issue in the fore. Keep it light an humorous.
