After the success of ‘Sometimes, y’, Dim continued on the movie trailer theme, this time sending up the ‘zero to hero’ movie genre, and more specifically 8 mile. VLC dreams of being the best media player, in a very competative field of big players.

Watch this movie on

    For a while I thought it was a real trailer.

  2. naithan(djtwitch) says:

    i like how you incorporated the limitations of the other media players into the story line

  3. plasticmanticor says:

  4. Dragonboy says:

    Yes, yes, yes, this SHOULD be a real movie! If not the SFB, someone else get on it!

  7. Mster24 says:

    You guys HAVE to make the full one… June 20th! I’m waiting!
    And how can a movie about a bunch of desktop icons be rated NC-17?

    Wow. You’re good at this. It kind of reminds me of Animator vs Animation 2 a bit.

  12. Andrew says:

    The pause button joke with windows media player was great!

  13. Ekka says:

  15. John says:

    Haha!!! Hilarious guys!!!! I remember back in the day watching the declines…I would have waited for eternity for 4 to come out…yall definitely know how to get some laughs, and this is definitely no exception, halo was amazing as well. This stuff is great!!!

  16. Matt says:

    Oh God, this looks hilarious.
    I can’t wait for this to come out!

  17. Matt says:

    That is, if it WAS a legitimate movie. :)

  18. Graxer says:

    I just saw this on Newgrounds, and when I saw the date I noticed it was yesterday. Its a shame this wasn’t real, because it looked brilliant! In my opinion it could have been your best video since the Decline series.

  19. Donovan says:

    I am saddened by the lack of video. I wanted so badly for it to be real

  20. Ninjat says:

    Make this movie. It will be the best thing ever!

    Get a real film company together, or make a full length thing, then find a cinema to show it!

    It will make it to the 1001 movies you must see list.

  21. Guneet says:

    So funny! You really should make this movie!

  22. Dan says:

    Hilarious guys. I laughed so hard.

  23. Nick says:

    Dude, what’s that song the Windows Media Player was rapping? It sounds familiar. And dude, make the real thing, IT’S AWESOME!

  25. Glides says:

    This is a great idea. And is that orange cone an honest-to-God media player? Because I’m using iTunes right now, and I want to use whatever media player that orange cone is (If it even exists)

  26. Graxer says:

    The orange cone is VLC Media Player. In my opinion it is the best out there.

  27. DaVince says:

    Haha, that was nice. Very silly.

    For me, SMPlayer is still the way to go. For video, at least. But talking about that sort of thing isn’t really the purpose of this whole video, is it?

    Nick: sounds like Eminem to me.

  28. x says:

    Its a real player

  29. wasdlmb says:

    the song Windows Media Player was rapping was Eminem – Lose Yourself

    Apple DEVELOPED the “.aif” filetype. I love VLC, but get your facts straight, quicktime can play it.

  35. Guneet says:

    CREATE THE MOVIE! (love the pause part at the end)

  36. tiedyeguy says:

    I would pay money to see this film. Seriously, if you released it, I’d be willing to drop $10 for the download. Incidentally, I’d pay just as much for Sometimes, y. You have an incredible gift as an animator.
