It is an adaptation of the song, "Dui Mian De Nu Hai Kan Guo Lai" by Ah Niu ("Cow"), translated by the filmmaker, Peter Tan. "This is my 2nd attempt at making a Machinima film. This video is a funny look at how a lonely man tries to attract girls in the MMORPG Everquest 2." - Peter Tan

I particularly liked the outtakes at the end.

What's in a Clone anyway? Danson Delta-40 is the sole survivor of the latest failed batch of Clone soldiers, hurriedly created to provide enough troops so the Galactic Republic can win the war that eats at its very foundations. Unfortunately, Danson isn't exactly your model soldier. he's had no training. He even doesn't know how to fire his rifle. And he questions the rather... questionable practices of the army founded on the "overwhelm them with many in useless plastic armor"...

Thanks, Dougri, for the links to Crazy Talk animation / TTS program used in the production of this micro-poem. Do you dream about being naked? Fact is, I've never in my life dreamt about swimming naked. Spent most of my childhood in the woods. Buck naked. Climbing trees and splashing about in streams and springs. I looked at one of a series of self-portraits as swimmer today and asked, "WTF?" This poem is the answer.
