Actual Skype Convo(tm)!

Krin: I have no idea what to do for the background of this title card
Vangelus: What's the theme?
Krin: (explains theme) I have Kelly holding a bottle of poison like ^_^ and pointing to a sign that has:
stick guy + poison = muscley stick guy
Vangelus: I dunno what it says about me that my first thought to try and help is "make the background a sea of bodybagged muscley stick guys"

So that's what's going on in the background, there. Bodybagged muscley stickmen! Thanks, Vangelus! ^_^b

Fun bonus!fact: The drippy font I used in this card doesn't have apostrophes, so I hand drew that one. STEALTH APOSTROPHE! 8D

Hidden word: polio. Because polio doesn't kill you... but it doesn't make you stronger, either.

Hand-drawn apostrophes are apostrophes with SOUL.

Ugh that saying needs to die a horrible death. Along with its cousin "sticks and stones may break my bones". I'm surprised that wasn't used in the song though.

I kind of see it like this. Every song after "Since You've Been Gone" is like a human centipede with "Stronger" at the rear. This shit just keeps getting recycled over and over. It's gotten boring now.
"Polio" that's brilliant...
Biggest Sell-out of Kelly Clarkson, but copying a phrase shown in a Conan movie, Seriously Kelly?
An its not like I hate her, I like some of her songs, Even Mr Know It All which was a reversal of Bruno Mars Just Way You Are had some good things to like, but not this. Even Kanye who sampled the beat of Daft Punk had fun with his song.
I like the title card, but the poison thinks still perplexes me, even Todd is just as confused as what the poison has to do with anything

She's basically saying, "the poison won't kill you, it'll make you stronger!"

I dislike the statement "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger," not because it's a cliche, but because there are a lot of things that don't kill you, but definitely do not make you stronger once you are done dealing with them. The statement is factually incorrect XD
The fact is she's using a cliche which created its own cliche according to Todd,
and the music video proves that everyone knows its a stupid phrase and just having fun with it

Oh btw ,Is Kelly wearing a dress, the way its shining it kind of reminds me of your drawing of Adele

Yeah, I drew Kelly wearing the dress she wore in parts of the music video. Except it's black in the video, and since I always draw Todd with large blocks of black, I changed it to blue for the card ^^
Oh yeah and a very happy birthday Krin, hope your day goes well

I was praying this would be his next one...

Love the title card too, nice work :)
I think I heard that song in a commercial or some kind of advertisement. Yeah that song's pretty bland.
