I think the first character's hand was too close to himself. I'd like it farther so I can see his face more. Where the second character is in relation to the first is also a bit confusing, but that's fine. Good work :)

Bruno de Coninck:

Great! The second character is really creapy! Great work! Only a detail : the first character could be a bit more mobile at the beginning.

Richard Clark:

Nice work!

Adam Momsen:

My goodness, I did not expect the hairy guy in the suit. And I think he's great! His poses are awesome (the hands during 'wilfred the merciful' are great!), his face is expressive... well done!

My only real critique here is to tighten up the lipsync with the audio a bit. It's not bad but I feel like the motion (especially with the first guy) is a frame or two off of the audio track.

Nicely done!

Nathan Greensmith:

Nice animation, good posing, nice work.

Paula Decanini:

I like how subdued first character is, but you could have contrasted it better with the second character. Second character is so scary looking, you should try to really exaggerate some creepy and menacing poses.

Kyle Novak:

The concept is strange without more than two rigs, one guy suggests the other calls him, and then the other suggests that the other man calls him. doesnt make sense.

Ben Halstead:

Nice work!
