    You ani. was on point for the song. Jessica’s song was hilarious. Something about her voice and the ani., “like two peas in a pod.” Do you have more things posted somewhere else?

    maybe she’ll get famous if she takes some singing lessons…. my ears are hurting… like the animation though.

    I saw Jessica Delfino performing at MNN (Public Access TV station in NYC) and She had her hair up like in the cartoon. I said “did the cartoon copy your hairstyle?” she smiled and said “I started doing this with my hair AFTER the cartoo”n! And I thought those “I’m the Juggernaut, Bitch” guys line being used in Xmen 3 were cool, but now you rule! You just served them!

    Hey, it worked for Mark David Chapman. Great short!

    I found it cool and cute at the beginning… but I watched it over and over again and I saw a terrific truth… The way she ” really really really really wanna be famous”. She’s gonna “kill somebody important”… Maybe it’s because my fist language is not english… maybe it’s harder to me to understand it truly… Maybe i’m a fucking psycho… so I imagine a terrific message in this song… And maybe it’s because I live in Montreal city… I saw what happends in the Dawson college on tv last summer… not so far of my work… Maybe it’s because I remember the Polytechnique University (still in Montreal) pretty close of my appartment. Those guy’s are famous now… They have kill somebody… Now they are “important”… not stars, but at least famous…

    I really enjoyed your film.
    Keep up the good work.

    OH MY God!!!! I have listened to this song/video like 20 times, I cannot get enough of it…I’ve never seen or heard of this girl but she is so awesome…this song makes my heart tingle.

    as for the animation….I’ve seen a lot of animations and the difference between animation and GOOD animation is the emotion of the character. This girl (animation) had so much character and human like emotions that it made me conect more with the song and in a weird way her.
    I found myself feeling sorry for her….yet it was just an animation

    I give this a 10 on animation and 11 on song performance…LOVE IT!

    I love the song and the video xD
    it’s so cute and funny!
    ” Kill somebody important, with my MIND!” xD
    I love the moment at 0:53 when she says, “kill somebody important” and beams at the audience.
    “I can’t cook and I have a kitten” lol

    great work 😉

    Wait…Flash?! No way…it looks hand-drawn!

    I’ve had this song stuck in my head…I started to sing “kill somebody important” walking down the street 😛

    Thanks for this vid! I really really really really really enjoyed it! I love how it annoyes me. Sucks my attention. I cant just listen to the song, it is always recalling the pictures, and I have to feed my visual needs, even if I know exactly what will I see. You both have to be very clever.:)
