Code Red Velvet

The news is pretty much common knowledge at this point, but last week the TSA confiscated a woman's cupcake on the grounds that the frosting was a "safety hazard"... I probably don't need to elaborate much on this, all you have to do is type in "TSA CUPCAKE" on Google and you'll get a billion articles.

My good friend Kevin over at Wolfmantis is friends with the owner of the suicide bombing pastry, Rebecca Hains, and worked with her and a local band to create a little jingle about the cupcake in question titled "Code Red Velvet". Seeing a good opportunity to have a collaboration between Wolfmantis and Six AM Comics, Kevin asked me to create an animation for said jingle... Naturally, I jumped right on board.

The following is the result:

This was the most fun I've had in a while. The animation/jingle was meant to mimic old Sesame Street animations from back in the day. Only we combined that with terrorism and an old game called "Scorched Earth" (iShoot if you have it on an iPhone). Anyway, hope you enjoyed!

Code Red Velvet!
