theme for the surveillance state

i thought of this basically right after my last post about wenlock and mandeville (the anthropomorphized surveillance cameras that were used as the mascots for the london olympics) but unfortunately work kept me too busy to finish it before the olympics ended. i wonder if they've taken them down and made a liar out of me. i can't imagine why they would, though.

i considered making this into a youtube video and actually singing this parody of barney the dinosaur's famous song, but i decided to spare you all that ear-bleeding experience and went for the 'follow the bouncing ball' gag instead (which took me 3 tries to get right). i have new appreciation for how hard and tedious an animator's job is.
