Who doesn't love a good parody?

If you love games like Animal Crossing, as well as online cartoons, then look no further!  A few days ago, one of my personal favorite online animators, Max Gilardi, aka "Hotdiggetydemon," posted his new cartoon, titled as "Isabelle ruins everything."  It parodies the popular Nintendo 3DS game, "Animal Crossing: New Leaf," by showing what would happen if the player's second in command, Isabelle, takes charge over the town.  The hilarious dialogue between the mayor and Isabelle entertains the viewers by basically explaining why a Marxist government wouldn't work in today's world.  I found it to be rather smart, as well as pretty adorable.

Gilardi has been known in the past to be rather controversial in his subject matter, and many of his cartoons involve explicit material, such as violence, swearing, and sex.  This animation, however, is oddly innocent compared to many of his other past creations.  Other than a few moments of light police brutality, the cartoon overall felt very refreshing to watch compared to many other popular online animations out today.  It was mostly dialogue that consisted of little swearing, and a more informative commentary.  The animation is also superb, and the little quirks, such as the way their mouths moved, made me fall in love with this.  If I ever had the opportunity to work with an animator like this, then I would do it in a heartbeat.
