- Veggie Tales The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything
And now it's time for Silly Songs with Larry...
Anyone who's watched "Veggie Tales" knows what I'm talking about! ^_-
Anyone who hasn't, well... it's a fun show about singing, talking computer-animated vegetables. What can be more fun than that? :)
Well, I decided upon many listenings to the silly song "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything" from that show, that I wanted to do a music video to it. I was going to use various pirates from piratey animes, such as Captain Harlock and others, but I just don't have the sources for that. :(
So, I decided to use the Kenshingumi since I've got several Kenshin episodes. So I got out the Pirate episodes... and ended up figuring "Hey, I need actual characterization. And these are pirates, but they're not lazy. Who's lazy?" The three Kenshin guys of course! So they became Larry, Pa Grape, and Mr. Lunt! I wanted to match attitudes and voices with each of them, and hope you find I did alright!
Kenshin=Larry the Cucumber
It all went on from there, with lyric and beat matching, and as close to lip-syncing as I could get considering how poor Movie Maker is to work with that. Oh well, I tried. I'm not expecting perfect scores there. It looked more accurate in the preview window. But you can tell I made lots of effort and did all I could with what I had. I even had to do many parts myself in still pictures, frame by frame, made with MS Paint. It's not hard to tell which ones, but oh well, I had no choice. :)
It was fun despite the many, many... many... MANY frustrations I came across. The subtitles are sad to behold, but I couldn't do anything about that. Just ignore them till future viewings; a few of them go amusingly with the situation, but don't look at them on the first few viewings. :)
I think a few people will like certain references. ^_^
Anyway, whether or not you're a Veggie Tales fan, I recommend you scoop this vid up for some fun and a few giggles. Please leave me some opinions and what parts you liked best. :) Have fun!
P.S. - Just for those who aren't too familiar with Kenshin: Sanosuke is often called "Tori-Atama", which means "Rooster Head", due to his hair. And Kaoru is often nicknamed "Tanooki", which is basically a racoon. Which I considered close enough to a chipmunk. Eh... you'll see. ^_^
