George Clooney Makes a Movie... Again!

Anyone who's ever achieved any kind of popularity on a social network/user generated content style site like GoAnimate, YouTube, MySpace or others may have come across the 'enthusiastic promoter/spammer'.

This kind of person is someone who uploads content frequently (sometimes several times a day) and then proceeds to tell all their online friends to go view their content by posting comments on their friends profiles. They'll particularly target popular users whether they're a friend or not and ask them to view their content as a way of leveraging the popular users audience to their content.

That was the inspiration for Imagine If... my animation staring George Clooney (or at least his head).

The animation isn't targeted at anyone in particular but there are many GoAnimate users that don't understand that telling everyone about every single animation they make starts to become a spamming issue regardless of how genuine the person is in sharing their creations around. My animation simply tries to highlight what happens if this practice was taken to the extreme.

I did get a bit of flack for using George in this animation. One person commented that I should have put my own head in there. However I felt the point need to be made with the assistance of someone who most people would recognise as a person who doesn't crank out content at speed and then promptly gets out on the promotion trail.

Replacing heads with celebrity heads (or even your own) is a nice feature of the GoAnimate platform and one I want to use more. This was my first opportunity to try the feature out and was also another chance to feature Super Rica, Rashy and their Mom and Dad too.
