Love that SP episode, and love the **idea** of this gif... but in execution, (a) it is a little weird with the real heads on there, and (b) why crying Jordan?

Thanks for the constructive criticism, honestly.
 
To be frank, I don't have the time to construct precise scenes essentially from scratch. This is why most gif makers use existing movie/tv scenes and then impose the photoshopped images for comedic effect.
 
In this case, yes the juxtaposition of real life images vs cartoon is jarring. Part of the reason crying Jordan was added was to give the scene another non-cartoon and also because it's crying Jordan so why not.
 
I have made some recent gifs right from scratch (well, stock photos and the like but completely made animation) and it is way too much work with my schedule to really get a good animation.
 
Remember, gifs need to be kept short and sweet as well. In this case I wanted a simple loop that hopefully some people found entertaining. This was 29 frames, each individually photoshopped so it was already more work than I really wanted.
 
I love this kind of input though, helps, me with future creations!

This thread reminds me of my life; I often bring up SP references in semi-professional/adult type situations, and I often get sideways looks.

On that note, SP is the thing that makes this long time reader a first time commenter.....lol
