Snapping?

posted by hplikelike on - last edited - Viewed by 824 users

Did anyone else realize an unusual amount of snapping in ToMI? It's like the developers spent a week working on getting the characters to snap, then, when it finally worked, decided to milk it for all the hard work they put into it. [just a theory. Your's?]

I'm not annoyed by it, but it certainly stands out.

  • I want to bring this back by saying I completely agree with the finger snapping. The animation is used waaaaaaaaay too much.

    I mean come on, seriously, does anyone really finger snap that much from day to day? I haven't seen someone finger snap for probably months at work. Why do ToMI characters do it so much??

  • I think Murray was snapping too much, personally.

  • mmm and Jake said there would be less snapping in episode 3 after I commented on all the snapping in the trailer for it.... I don't think there was quite as much as episode 1, but there was still quite a lot!

  • Never noticed it myself & also didn't know what the hell you lot were on about until I found this thread.

    In England there is no verb for it. It's just called 'clicking your fingers'

    I do this a lot so I guess that's why I never noticed it. Doesn't everyone here "snap" on a daily basis? :confused:

  • I'm not even able to snap. I'm just not able to land my finger in the right spot! It always lands at the base of my thumb.

    OK, this is one of my weirder posts.

    By the way, there's no thread about the Voodoo Lady's er... "movements"?

  • Is it bad if I've noticed an increase in myself finger snapping in real life? 0_0

  • I have been noticing it, several times per episode is too many. If a character does it once for emphasis every couple episodes, that's plenty. IIRC (which there's a good chance I'm just remembering wrong) this started with Sam & Max 203 where they first had Sam snap to end the backstory and go into the opening credits, and then did it too many more times for the rest of the season.

  • It never even occurred to me that the animation was in Sam & Max, I must have forgotten about it. In ToMI Ep1 they used it so much that I assumed it was a new animation that they wanted to show off.
