  • Comments: I do not apologize....

    So I'm not typically into making stuff using a internet meme, but when Shin jokingly told me to use this song to make an AMV, this concept came to mind a few days later and I had to make it. I do not take offense to anyone who does not like the video because of its' length or the song used, the whole concept is commentary on the Endless Eight and how it basically feels like a huge troll. The original project name for this was "Endless Eight Abridged" and the entire goal was to create an abridged form of this story arc to the "troll song" (most commonly known as Trololo) and attempt to recreate for the audience what I felt like (and what a lot of Haruhi fans claimed they felt like) when watching the Endless Eight. The point of the humor is not so much the raw video content that you see, but the concept behind the video. For anyone who doesn't want to watch the entire video, key points to hit are:
