I had the idea for this cartoon a couple of years ago, based on audio I found by accident on some fan site.
It has been pretty popular among Rush fans so far, so I will definitely be producing some additional "episodes"!
I am pretty happy with the cartoon, but, of course, the internet being what it is there was of course a bit of negative feedback. One guy on some message board said something like "what's so funny about people getting crushed?" Well, obviously there's nothing funny about that. What's funny to me is just Geddy's attempts to get the audience under control. I thought that went without saying but I did fear that was a sensitive issue with some people, given recent events.
I cannot explain it, but for some reason my Santa Claus Video has experienced a steep decline in views over the past week or so. It was doing pretty well for a while there... maybe I should invest more in advertising?
Or, I suppose I could just wait and see how it does next year. Thanks to all who checked it out, commented or "liked" it!
Happy New Year!
(Just in case... you can still buy the song on iTunes or Amazon!)
