Hi all, thanks so much for the outpouring of support.

FYI, the director/animator of the original video, Kevin Altieri, reached out with the following comment:
"Okay, I directed and drew the damn thing, and the point of the cartoon was to scare people straight ( as much as a cartoon is capable of doing)... and i just have to say how disturbed i am that [you] have found so many matching shots from modern reality.... well done"
Also, one viewer suggested I create a side-by-side version of the two videos. That can be viewed here: bit.ly/2fzEDWk

Here are a few screenshots to whet your appetite:

I've never posted anything "political" on the internet before. But these are strange times, folks. So I felt compelled to make something over the weekend— a long-overdue update to a certain 1998 music video directed by Kevin Altieri and Todd McFarlane. If you like it, please share it. If not, that's okay too. But if you can't respect my freedom of speech, please unfriend me. Good luck tomorrow, everyone. #ItsEvolutionBaby

    Love the original but I think this was interesting. Brave posting here, many will take a shit on your work just because they hate everyone associated with any stance they don't share.

    What I liked more was the video you made of Irene watching The Red Wedding. That stuff was brutal. Wish I had taped my wife, but she would have killed me if I recorded/posted her reaction to it.

    Good luck here and on FaceCrap, where I am assuming from your message you posted this as well, hope that you have a thick skin.

    Nice work, can tell that took you a lot of time.
    Wouldn't it be funny if the world ended in 2010, with lots of fire?

    I think this is their most important song it's message is so powerful. Thank you for making a video that is just as powerful and relevant to now.

    Can we all just have a silent prayer it's not to late to really evolve into a better species....

    I shared it on my Facebook page.
