Beautiful song, beautiful vid, pure indulgence!! Loved the fact people were waving their lighters when it played! Totally loved up!

I do recall the compo intro slide saying this was made using an A1000, Deluxe Paint and a Video Toaster, so a thumb for that at least, if its true!

The lighter part was kind of funny indeed. Not my kind of music (though well done), but I love how the tools used give it a real "Nineties" look.

It was hard for me to stand this at the compo. To me, it´s just cruel.

Well, she can sing. But apart from that not very special, so piggy.

Nice singing and all, but really boring.

Maaike Jansen (Raalte, 4 april 1990) is een Nederlandse zangeres. In oktober 2007 won ze het tweede seizoen van het SBS 6-programma So You Wanna Be a Popstar.

So it's exactly what it looks like: A fucking marketing ploy.

Not wanting to say that the demoscene is a "boy's club" this was just too commercial and "girly" for me to bear. I actually left the room and just checked to see if it had already finished.

If it's a prank it's mildly funny in a cruel way. If it's not then I don't think it belongs in the scene at all.

I'll take girly things over run-of-the-mill things any time.

I liked the song. That it didn't "fit" into the usual demoscene scheme ("scheiße"?) is a plus in my opinion.

I couldn't imagine why a commercial production would use a demoscene party for marketing. This was a bit more obvious with the NoCopy entry a few years ago. To me it looks like they just bought an old video production system that is accidently based on the famous Video Toaster. And then a nerd friend of them entered it at bp.

Let's see what the story is behind this entry. I'll save my thumb until then.

tomaes: explain please? I don't really see how winning a reality TV show is proof of this being a marketing ploy, unless you're implying that someone who's commercially successful can't possibly have legitimate creative reasons for entering a demoscene competition.
added on the 2009-04-15 15:39:51 by gasman gasman
"Marketing ploy" was probably poor wording on my part (giving these guys way too much credit), but this is a music video for a commercial artist, promoting a commercially released single, thinly disguised as something else. At least that's what I gather from a bit of research.

In other words: This doesn't really belong in such a compo for the same reason this doesn't.

somehow okay

If I want to see crappy MTV videos I can just turn on my TV.

Miles better then the average demoscene techno tune.

i feel like puking after watching this. this is so not my taste that it's scary.

I had some kind of WTF feeling when the whole thing started in the compo. Well executed, but just a bit too cheesy for me. Possibly you didn't meet the target group at BP for this kind of music/video.

So what is it about with the commercial hick'n'hack ?
What about the bloody copyright issue then?

She can sing, that's for sure, although I just kinda waited for the calm soothing voice of the smoothlounge.com host o_O

BTW I don't give a rats ass about "A1000/DPaint & video toaster"

come on people, you actually expect to understand dutch humour without previously (and during) (and after) taking quite some drugs? :D

I guess I'm too much of a mainstream demoscener to be able to enjoy this...

I would thumb it down again, if I could, just to make clear that no single producer will be allowed to release his commercial shit here, no VIVA, no MTV, no anything or anyone. I was almost puking during the compo, when this was shown. May she sing as good as it can get, but don´t open the doors, plz, for Roxette or Sarah McLachlan f.ex. releasing musicvideos on pouet, pleeeeeeaaaaaaasssseeeeeeee. Thank you.

well, i dont often thumb down things but this.. well.. mtv music videos? wrong place!

maya or 3dsmax or blender --> after effects --> wild

counter strike irl --> lulz --> NOT
puke --> noise --> NOT
gta irl --> poor sound effects --> NOT
cute girl --> nice voice --> NOT

that's where it stands
ok i see (a little) work behind it. but why do you release this one on breakpoint ? i dont want to be that direct like the other voters before but pffff this isnt easy. and on the other hand i dont want you to stop going on with your work. dont stop ! ok ?! but if i am honest i dont wanna see prods like this on parties again.
