So there you have it. Possible the weirdest thing on H*R ever.

Yeah, I don't get it either. I mean, a bit of explanation maybe? Or maybe somehow it'll tie into the Strong Bad email.

Dear Strong Bad,
Describe the feel of the drug induced 70's, using The Cheat.
Sincearly,
T-Bird.

....okay....I'm moving out...

So, were there 500 drawings of The Cheat in this "animation" or something?

At least an email is coming out soon.

What the crap is this? Were all of The Cheat's different?

Catchy song, though...

That was dumb.

Um. I don't know WHAT that was. Is it supposed to be 500 different drawings of the cheat in that animation? To me... it looked like it just looped a few over and over? Are they saying they've drawn the cheat 500 different ways? 500 appearances of the cheat?

I honestly have no idea what that was. Are TBC experimenting with drugs to help give them fresh ideas. lol. Because that looks like how they'd come up with that. lol.

I have seen a lot of weird stuff on H*R. But I just don't even KNOW what that was, what the point of it was... or anything. Where's that sbemail. lol.

Good God.

(i did like the song though, lol... best original song in awhile!)

I don't know what to make of it. It's not particularly entertaining to watch. It seems like one of those things that should be on one of TBC's many "secret pages."

*blinks*

...

*watches it again*

...

Nope, still doesn't make sense. I suppose that on further inspection, the cheat is drawn differently but it's not all that... special. But... honestly.. why?

I want this to either be my desktop or my screensaver.

This is definitely an unusual short. I mean, it pretty much defies categorization doesn't it? The only reason this belongs in the Short section is because of its length. I think TBC are just experimenting here. Judging by the reactions above, I think we can safely say this Short is a little too strange for most H*R fans. I hope that last statement doesn't come off as elitist. For the record, this Short is a little too strange for me too.

Technically, we can place this alongside "A Folky Tale" as one of the only toons that does not feature Homestar Runner or Strong Bad.

For everyone who thinks that they're on crack, this was probably just a test of animation that they did a while ago. And we all know they were insane a while ago.

Yeah....I don't get it.

Y'all need to quit being so self-centered. "What were they thinking"? You know, the fact that YOU don't like something does NOT make it a waste of time.

I actually thought it was pretty hilarious...I'm not sure why. (Probably either the plot or the character development)

This little feature reminds me of the tribute TBC did for "Trogday"... Even though we already have a "cheatday" (on July 5), there must be some reason why everything's been coming up Cheats lately.

The weekly fanstuff has been devoted to The Cheat two weeks in a row, the plush The Cheat was featured in the store (discounted), and now this.

The Cheat is evil, yet awesome. Therefore he wants to take over the world. This is his weapon of mass hypnosis to get you all under his control for the initial strike. Don't you feel like you want to obey The Cheat's every order after watching this thing? :cheatgrin:

Mystery solved.

(In a more realistic note, I enjoyed the crazy little short. But I'm glad we'll still be getting a real update.)

I thought that was somewhat amusing. Maybe they just came up with that cute little song and decided to make a little video to go with it. I was a bit dissappointed that they didn't seem to be in cronological order. It would have been cool to see the Cheat evolve.

That was completely weird. The song was good, but the rest of it was weird. I'm guessing they did that so people wouldn't start complaining that there are too many sbemails.

um... a mix of "Woah that was sweet!" and "That was the stupidest thing I've ever seen."

That means it was "Woah, the was the stupidest sweet thing I've ever seen!"

4/5 - too random, loved the song

Uhh... I just felt an awful lot of cells leave my brain from watching this crap. :p

The song's kinda catchy, but man, this thing is sooooo lame. Smart move for them to announce that a new E-mail is coming soon and caffeine was added to Podstar Runner (yay!). Kinda hard to give a grade for a 30-second experimental short, though.

I don't know why, but this made me laugh VERY LOUD. It could have been the song, or it coulda been the total randomness of it. I don't know. I like how, if you click on The Cheat, he goes from black and white to color.

I'm gonna have to watch that again.

I think Strongbad said it best:

"Um, I dunno, The Cheat, I don't think it was very good.. at all. I mean, the song was kinda catchy but the visuals were lacking, at best."javascript:emoticon(':sb:')


Hi by the way...I'm new!

That was....interesting. Seems like filler before the e-mail.

Haven't even watched this yet, and the reactions are hilarious. I seem to like more Dada-tastic productions, and I'm looking forward to seeing this.

Let's try for 500 cheats!
