City of Heroes ad #1

A couple months ago I was asked to create some funny ads for the game City of Heroes/City of Villains. Now the characters in the City of Heroes games, while having an amazing variety of height/weight/clothing and a decent amount of emote options, do NOT have one little important aspect for a funny ad - mouth and eye movement. Not wanting the ad to look like moving expressionless mannequins, I suggested that I animate all the mouths and eyes. I didn't really know what I was in for - it took an awful lot of work. But I think the results are much more expressive than if I hadn't done it. Well, judge for yourself. Go to the actual youtube page to view it in HD.
