While browsing the Razputin (http://www.lucasforums.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=601) forums I accidentally clicked on Dnomso's (http://www.lucasforums.com/member.php?s=&action=getinfo&userid=120640) profile, followed the link to his deviantART page (http://poschki.deviantart.com/) and well..look at this. (http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/10553231/) (Its a flash animation, so click download)

Pure brilliance.

Yeah, that's pretty sweet. It's a shame there isn't more Grim Fandango fan-art.

I love the music in that, the lyrics and singing are really good, but the piano really stood out for me.

Animation was good as well.

Pure Class

Joshi, you do realise that the song itself is taken straight from the game, right? :)

I wouldn't really be surprised if you didn't - it's a nice hidden surprise you only get if you show Glottis a certain item while he's sitting at the piano - but if you haven't experienced it in-game, you really should!

I didn't recognize it either, but it said it was from GF in the credits. I always thought there should have been more Rusty Anchor references... why they were hidden though?

Not really hidden, but if somehow Glottis was at the cat races already, you couldn't ask him about Rusty Anchor while he was sitting at the piano in Manny's club...

That song is great. You can read the lyrics in the HTML transcripts that the game creates.

I have never heard it, but I did think that it may be in the game.
I'll have to try it out at some point. I can probably guess the item I have to give to glottis (at the time of course, not right now)
I guess I should have known though, the flash did sound a lot like him and I doubted he'd got the actual actor in to record a for simple flash animation, I just assumed he'd got someone who sounded a lot like him.

Huh? So where should I ask him??

When Glottis is at the piano you give him the rusty anchor slip.
