Hey, if you're someone, or a future employer whom I meet later in life, I want you to know that we were all young and foolish once and made nonsense like this. Lol
15 year-old JemiDove (original description, 2012):
I don't know how many of you actually read the description on my true thoughts behind why this abomination was created.
I don't even like Gangnam Style (the song, dance, and everything associated with it)...I feel that this is my worst MMD project to date, despite being the most popular. I'm much more pleased with my other videos, and have put into way more effort into them. This one, however, was really rushed.
I was 'challenged' by a friend to do a MMD of Sonic and gang dancing to Gangnam Style when the song became popular at that time. Though, I was really reluctant to do so, as I'm not one who follows fads easily/quickly. But I eventually fell into the 'first one to do so' trap, so ah well. :(
This is the only MMD video I've made where I genuinely dislike the song used.
I usually make MMDs only if I love the song or dance moves.
My opinion still stands though: I dislike Gangnam Style and everything associated with it, despite being this video's creator.
The only thing I put much effort into was the camera motion :P
By the way, as with all Sonic MMD models (or any model of the same size/height) , the dance/actions that involve movement near the floor with get screwed up. You can see what I mean x_x
READ THE DANG DESCRIPTION! ESPECIALLY UPDATE 2!!! You commentors are overboard!! Any more comments like "Why not ___X____" or "Where's Knuckles and Tails?" and I'll disable further comments. Read UPDATE 2, that'll answer some of your questions.

UPDATE 1: This was featured on Sonic Retro! And it was on my birthday too! 5 October 2012 (at the bottom of this article) http://www.sonicretro.org/2012/10/new-sonic-jump-coming-to-mobile-devices-soon/
UPADTE 2: Copied and pasted from my own comments. These should answer some of your questions:
1) No, I don't support shipping or any couple stuff. I just made each male hedgehog dance with whatever female character whom they interact with most in the games. So that's my logic on why they are paired like this in the video. I prefer to stick with the games' canon.
2) Where is Taaaaaaaaaails!!! And Knuckleeeeeees!!!
Well, I couldn't find a suitable female partner for Knux, so I left him out :P I wanted him to go with Rouge actually, but I paired her with Shadow instead, to complete the 'hedgehog trio'. As for Tails, I wanted him to pair up with Cream, but I'll probably faint if I see him and Cream doing the part at 1:55 @[email protected]
Unsuitable for their age...
3) I am strongly against couples and shipping in the Sonic series. And don't ask me about the characters in the comics (like Sally, e.t.c) because I follow the game canon only. I don't read the comics.
UPDATE 3 (23 Jan 2017): Copy-pasted from a random reply:
"I used to watch this when I was young lol xD"
"Damn, time flies, I made this nonsense 5 years ago. People grow up, and so have I.
I still hate that this exists and have wanted to delete this many times because I didn't want people to think that I'm a psychotic or something... but eh, whaddaya do when you're a teenager. Videos like this lol.
I've moved on from MMD and Youtube uploads. Maybe I'll return to actual 3D animation someday, but for now I'm focused on 2D art as a career.
I dunno what to do with this Youtube channel honestly. I still use this account as a subscriber of many channels but I'm no longer an uploader. What if my future boss sees this. Lol. Maybe I'll make an announcement/update video heh."
UPDATE 4 (24 Sep 2017): Copy-pasted from a random reply:
Commenter (Bobby Stinklehoffer):
"It's ironic that this video has Gangnam Style, yet the uploader does NOT like it!"
"I know, right? Glad you read the description! I'm just keeping this horrific video online since there's a crazy bunch of people who seem to keep watching it anyways. Also because as much as I hate what I've created, I don't want to delete this video from my channel, only to have other people reupload it and then claim it as theirs. I guess it's a way for me to show new people I meet IRL, "Hey I made this stupid video that blew up in popularity when I was 15, this is proof, hurrdhurr let's laugh and cringe at it." x'D Why do I do this to myself loool."
