The full story behind this movie is up on my blog , but I figured some of the guys around here might enjoy it. It's mostly inside jokes from our work, but there's at least one bit I threw in that most people from the board should get.

They gave credit I think... at least one guy did, and I left a comment on all of them just in case Very Happy.

Its just odd that someone stumbled upon it and decided to post about it.

Excellent work. Everything is funnier with Yakety Sax playing.

The whole movie was made with Microsoft Paint and Windows Movie Maker. The original idea was to make it look really crappy like some 8 year old made it. Unfortunately(Or fortunately) it actually ended up looking kind of good(In my opinion)
