Optimus Rhyme Promo

I long time ago I mentioned how much I love Optimus Rhyme. Their lyrics reach in an tickle the parts of my brain that usually only Wierd Al or They Might Be Giants can reach.

Last night I found this video on YouTube, more or less ignored. It features a really well-done stage area rendered in 3d, a great 3d rendition of Optimus Rhyme frontman Wheelie, and a nice transformation. This is really great work and pretty much nobody has seen it.

As of right now the video has a measly 800 views? My own video has nearly half a million. Seems unfair. Here’s hoping the promo makes it in front of a few more eyeballs.

    Oh my god first comment? Yay!

    The transformation is too “noisy,” it kind of comes over the song itself too much. I mean, I know that’s not a big deal, and the 3D is pretty cool, but I was enjoying the music more than the rendering, and would rather the sound effects were more muted.

    As it was starting, i didnt realise it was rendered… :)

    nifty. =D

    Haha, reading through the comments on your video someone wanted help finding that song. Is They /Might/ Be Giants really that hard to remember? Why do people remember the Might as Must?

  5. Shamus says:

    There are hundreds of comments, and about a third of them ask for the song title, which is given in the credits. Then I get a private message every few weeks ago asking the same thing. I’ve stopped answering, since they had to look past the answer several times.

    YouTubers. Silly.

    Very very cool. I’ll have to check these guys out more!
