Darkmatter2525: Don’t Expect A Terrible Hereafter – VIDEO


I was challenged to make a meaningful animation without speech. Thanks to my friend, known as C0ct0pusPrime here on YouTube, for challenging me to do this a while back.

If you’re not mindful, you might find out too late.

You can be a King or a Street Sweeper, but everybody dances with the Grim Reaper

No matter what it doesn't matter what we believe in cause it doesn't make it true but all I'm saying is that just because nothing happens after we die who is to say that this was the first time we were alive or your consciousness of some type has occurred every now and then in a universe that existed forever and will always exist via a multiverse, cyclic/ big bounce/ m-theory, cause given enough time anything that can happen will happen based on the laws or bylaws of each universe, membrane, or a fractal universe or wtf have you -verse,… Read more »

Should've made an Easter egg and used the truck of peace to run him over with. lol

Your amazing dude love your work, love everything you stand for. Also I have a question if you don't mind what is your take on the singularity the concept of humankind being replaced with machines.

Why did I laugh at this? I feel like it shouldn't be funny.


Anyone else notice that the four cars are the colors of the four horsemen of the apocalypse? Pale, Red, White, and yellow (because black car on black street=not good cartoon).

Or am I projecting?


pretty predictable ending Cx

Joe Smith

I guess the moral of the story is that women are always the death of us.

Finite Wehosh

Moral of this story? If you first don't succeed, try try again.


hey look, it's the truck of peace making a cameo!


Darkmatter2525, I muted the sound and am playing Steve Shives theme music on repeat while watching this.


Kinda predictable. Also how often does it happen that a hot chick makes a first move on ya?

safiullah mohammed
