Musical Voodoo Toon for Mardi Gras

Today is Mardi Gras! It would be a shame to let the day go by without a Voodoo Vince-related post. Imagine my surprise and delight when I found this swell cartoon up on Newgrounds, set to some of the music from the game. It's an embedded Flash cartoon and you need to click past an ad, but it's worth checking out. I think Mr. Emanhattan (if that's his real name) did a bang-up job!

One correction, though. While he does credit the music from the Voodoo Vince soundtrack, he seems to have missed the fact that the music and lyrics for the Vince theme song are actually by me, not Steve Kirk (who did a superb job arranging the tune). It's an easy mistake, since Steve did compose virtually every other piece in the game's soundtrack.

Anyway, this made my day! Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Nice to see that the legend lives on- nice animation! I think he dutifully captures the spirit.

Nice animation there. Its always great to hear the Vince Theme again :D

May I ask you a questipn Mr. Kauzlaric: When I re-played, for the fifth time, the game some months ago, I noticed certain detail in the tornado-boss stage. There is an object, a ?concrete? estatue of someone there, with two initials on the base. Can't remember the exact letters though... So the thing is, whats that all about? XD.

@AkaTsuko - Let's just say that's a tribute to somebody who was near and dear to the team at Beep.
