Wonderful!! This one's going on my SHORT LIST! Very entertaining and near flawless technically. Cute concept and funny execution. A simple little gem. Loved it! -Brian ("Christmas in Reno") 
That was cool! your opening shot with the bike was so cool how did you do that! good work man! 
Nice job, Robert! Love that crane shot at the beginning and the focus shot with the electrical plug later on. I hope Tchaikovsky's estate doesn't come looking for you! Randy Hines ("Suburban Holidays", "Decorations") 
Hey Daniel, ThanxTo make that opening shot, we borrowed a crane from ITFP where I take my film class and set it up on a tripod that swivled. We orginally wanted to set the crane on a dolly as well so we could make those first two shots into one fluid shot following the bike however due to budget and time constraints it did not work out. 
haha I had to google Tchailkovsky to see what you meant by that and I get it now. I am pretty sure I'm safe though. 
very funny. nice editing. good luck. Anastasia (at home on others' holidays)
