I don't know what to say but it saves 0:02:58.505 over published movie.


Maru: Judging.

Mothrayas: This movie is a near-direct copy of this movie file by The8bitbeast, down to an identical runtime. Some inputs were altered, but none that affect the runtime of the movie, nor do they alter the appearance of this movie in any way.

On direct evidence, this movie would be rejected alone on the grounds of failing to beat existing records. However, based on the fact that the submission is going out of its way not to mention The8bitbeast or his movie at any point, and is not showing any evidence that the movie was created independently or shows any understanding of how the movie was made separate from taking The8bitbeast's input, I'm not going to give it the benefit of the doubt.

Based on this, it fails to follow the rules on attributing movies - in particular: Do not claim authorship for something you haven't made - Taking another user's movie and submitting it under your name is strictly forbidden. Such offense is potential grounds for a ban. This doesn't apply to situations where a similar or identical solution is discovered and implemented independently. and A modicum of effort is required.

In other words: this submission is plagiarizing on The8bitbeast's movie file, and TASVideos does not tolerate plagiarism of this degree. As such, cancelling this submission, and Bluely is henceforth banned from the site.
