A NOTE ON TERRITORY AVAILABILITY: As of April 21 2021, Sony Music Entertainment has caused this video to be blocked in all countries except Japan due to the use of Eight Melodies in the last minute or so. Unfortunately, I can't swap or trim the audio in Video Editor because this video has over 100,000 views (which means I'm unable to save changes) and I'm not eligible for the YouTube Partner Program. I have no idea why this awful requirement exists, but if I can't find a workaround, I'll consider re-uploading with royalty-free music so at least the original animation will be available. If someone knows how to fix this issue directly, let me know!Please do not reupload the video, I am aware of the problem and will reupload to this channel if I must. Youtube's policy on removing claimed content can be found here:https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/2902117?hl=en&ref_topic=9257784~~~A short animated ode to one of the best videogames of all time, Earthbound/Mother 2.
