A few weeks ago on a Game Tapes or Demo Derby, Jeff mentioned Laugh Olympics... I remember that thing and it put the idea in my head to do an 80s Cartoon style opening animation for Giant Bomb. Well, after about 2 weeks of work it is finally done, check it out if ya want! My videos are not #monetized so I just want people to see it... and hopefully enjoy it.

Might want to watch it first before scrolling down if you like to avoid spoilers... spoilers for a dumb animated video, but still... I am going to include some high res screen shots from the video incase anyone wants them, or to just look at them.

I did all the animation myself and I also spliced the audio together from royalty free sound effects and the podcast music that I ripped from old episodes and edited together. I am new at animating, but I am even less awesome at audio, so apologies for the sound quality if its off.

Paging @zombiepie, this is Community Spotlight material.

And it's scary how much Dan and Vinny look alike.

I like the look on Jeff's face. It's like someone caught him secretly spinning doughnuts.

Rorie's endless war against warm vending machines is perfectly captured here.

Ha that's awesome dude! Love the personalized gag for each member. I thought Alex would get something wolfy, I don't get the fire flower reference off the top of my head. I actually had to rewind once for Rorie's as there was a lot happening with his compared to some of the other ones but by the end of the first viewing with the vending machine I had pieced it together.

Hey, thanks for all the comments duders! Glad people are enjoying it! :)

Had a couple questions come up a few times, first Brad is just opening a chest, not really specific to anything... could be spelunking... Tomb Raiding.. Charting things... just wanted him and a piggy wearing a hat to be opening a chest...

Also, Alex has the fire flower because I wanted one thing to be in color and was going to have a flower, but then I made it a fire flower so his section had a game reference of some kind.. Alex's section was the one I wasnt sure what to do with but it ended up being my favorite part!

Seems like every reference has been mentioned here or on twitter... except for the heads at the end being in diamond shapes to celebrate The Sims 3 on console :) tho thats pretty obscure I guess lol <>

Thanks again!

@graboids: I just assumed the fire flower was a reference to the UPF where they were looking at the Wario thing on the WiiU and one person drew a fire flower saying "BURN WITH ME!". That's probably a deep cut that most people wouldn't get.

Great video all around! Echoing the above comments about Rorie's being my favourite bit. Would've loved to have seen Drew's fighter jet fly upside down when he pressed a button because you just know something bad was gonna happen!

Donut jeff, bomber drew, moody alex, and J-Strike are on point. Keep up the good work. Rorie looks a bit off, but that's a hell of a reference to pull from.

For those who don't get it, Rorie disliked the state of the soda machines in the CBSi building and infrequently made remarks about it during a couple of live streams

@humanity: thanks! yeah feels good to have it done but better seeing people enjoy it! :)

thanks to everyone else for the comments, means a lot. Seems like the Rorie part is a hit, felt weird spending that much time on a kind of obscure old joke like that so I am glad people liked it :)

forgot to post the Taco Bomb logo with the other art, not my best work but I meant to post it earlier with the rest of it:

I love everything about this, but my favorite part is the small detail of Drew looking at his notes before pressing a button. This is a fantastic video.

I can't stop watching it. It's so perfectly paced and each gag is just there long enough to leave you wanting more. You did a great job on the audio by the way. Everything feels just right. I love this so damn much.
