Classic creative work - nice pictures without care for the underlying data. Can't believe you'd endorse this mediocre effort.

How many stars are on the US flag???

How many states are there?

Otherwise, I thought it was entertaining.

Interesting, but it could have been a lot better...
and what's with the
52 stars?
are they counting Alaska and Hawaii double for each time they've been forgotten?

really really awesome.

Pity they didn't do anything with my country (Spain) and the country where I live (China)...

Maybe I'll do!

yes, the comment on the US flag ("impossible to count the stars!") is particularly amusing since apparently the animator really can't count...

But quite funny and well done.

Yeah, I don't get the 52 stars part. Unless they're counting some extra places, like Puerto Rico, Guam, US Virgin Islands, part of Samoa, Marshall Islands ... or maybe they thought the 7+ Hawai'ian islands ought to be 3 states instead of 1

I lived in Europe for 4 years. Many people think there are 52 stars on the US flag. I had a lot of arguments with pub quiz directors on this matter.

Also, this is not really an info-graphic is it? It represents non-quantitative concepts, however it has good aesthetic style.
