I entered into the brave new world of NEET around the time I was making this video. This does not in itself explain why I thought the bit with the car was a good idea. This is a decent video all told, and it marks the end of one micro-era and the start of another with regard to production style, but it still carries the problems of SH046 with regard to the fact that I was trying to do effects work with a video Hole Hawg. Doing effects, as opposed to general production design, would have to wait until I got an editing environment in which they weren't such a blunt damn instrument.
For illustration purposes, this is "the bit with the car", an unnecessarily complex MEIMI effect that almost works in the context of the video.
This effect would show up again in SH082/83, but in that context it's being intentionally excessive.
This was also the video that got the quick-comment that launched the remasters project.
