Can we not let the internet win this one?

A long-time friend of mine is in the Fox Aniboom challenge and he's got a damn good cartoon entered in it. Unfortunately, it's being overshadowed by a lot of really crappy and unworthy entries because they made the mistake of asking the internet what they think is good. What we have here is a great short that is already of the quality that you would see on TV and while I would love to see it go all the way, I would at least be able to sleep at night knowing it wasn't losing to some like...say this, for instance. And I'm not just saying this because this is a friend of mine. Brian is an excellent cartoonist and animator and he is LONG overdue for some recognition. So please go on to Aniboom and give his cartoon a look and vote on it. Or if you honestly don't think it's worth it, at least find something else that's of this quality or higher and vote on that. I'm tired of the general internet praising and rewarding stick figures and randomness while people who have actually built up years of experience, people who put hard work and dedication into their work are left unnoticed.
