Problematic yet fun FFXII video

I think the vidder picked the song for the sound of it, without entirely considering its disturbing message-- one I don't think Fran and Balthier would endorse. Nonetheless, while I find the lyrics a little distracting, I love this video for capturing what I most liked in FFXII: Byzantine politics, acknowledgement that Ashe's "crusade" is problematic, and most of all the "formidable partners" relationship between Balthier and Fran. The choice of what scene to juxtapose with "No one knows men like Fran does" makes me grin.

Spoiler warning.

Oh, really? I'm flattered. I tend to pick them for content rather than skill, usually, so I tend to assume you have more discerning tastes. :)

I always prefer good content to good editing.

Ah, yes, I agree, good choice of scenes throughout. A little too much game dialogue for my tastes, but otherwise very well done.

Yeah, the "hold on, then" scene is so tempting to slip in, because it's such a great moment, but it interrupts the flow of the vid.
