I have been a big fan of Jib Jab for many years-ever since the first year of Elf Yourself. For the most part I really enjoy your work and wish I could get a job with you. I will say one thing bothers me a little and that is how you handle your political satire. I understand that it is comedy-but it has become pretty obvious that you have a political lean. You should remeber that whatever your opinions-your customers have thier own opinions also. And you certainly don’t come out fair and balanced. Specifics I could sight that may have been handled differently-Scene 5 about the Libyan Crisis may have been a good place to bring in the empty chair. IF you were honest. Scene 8 about “Chick Fil A” was totally inacurate-the man just voiced an opinion, he did not kick anyone out. The long lines in support of his opinion may have been the joke. Scene 13-Why Rush and the Slut? What about the death threats to Mia Love? Just saying your kinda one sided. Then slides 21-22-kicked thier butt? Not really-151 Million Americans didn’t vote at all, thats 151 million votes Obama DIDN’T get. Again, I know it’s supposed to be comical, but not sure you want to offend 151 million of us. Just 1 thing that was pro conservative and anti Liberal wouldn’t hurt. Then Gangham Style? At the least you could have made him look bad. Just saying-love your work, but there are 151 million of us out here who don’t worship. I came in just to see your year in review, because I usually send it out every year-not this year. You should really try to keep your political satire a bit more balanced. I don’t mind a little poking in the name of comedy-but I should go both ways.
Good luck getting a job at JibJab Cindy!
It’s called “Constructive Criticism, Honesty, or for artist, Critique”. Guestposter may not understand that, but I suspect the folks at JibJab aren’t that thin skinned.
This year in review makes up for the fact that you didn’t do an election video this time. I look forward to these every year. And Cindy, the Chick Fil A guy didn’t eject celebrities out of a restaurant on a cartoon springboard either. It’s just silliness. Check out ‘Jib Jab’s’ video ‘Second Term’. Very pro-Bush. Lighten up.
Thanks for providing all of the credits! The only thing I could ask for is if we could know which characters the voice performers did. Other than that, it’s great.
What a privilege to have a insider peek at your creative process. Great fun, many thanks! Could you add musician names to credits next year? (Sorry–partial–spouse is a musician.)
Would fix spelling of Petraeus so folks won’t fuss : )
Gotta disagree with Cindy; she is welcome to create her own stuff wherever she’s hired, but please keep JibJab its own delightful nutty product.
Glad the video invited viewers to your blog. THANKS!
