Think this is good enough to be posted in the Showcase section?

^no. What is the point of this animation? Also have you seen what's in the Showcase gallery. You can try and submit it, but I would expect some harsh criticism. Also it seems unfinished, and the showcase gallery is for finished work.

I think you're right Jeremy, the animation is a bit rough for showcase, especially the lip sync.
As for what the animation is about - well that doesn't seem so clear either... but at least it's fun.
Basically, it's a businessman with his head in the clouds punching himself in the face; that much is clear. The unrelated element is the sound clip, but what better music to punch oneself in the face to than drum and bass? The "we control the sound" element is absurd to be sure, but then again so is the permise of the character.
I'm going to make a more planned out animation piece with this toon sometime in the future. He'll be smashing a computer and that would make more sense I think.
