YAY! Random Dancing Gummy and Sitting Lyra Bon Bon Animated Comic!

Well... Let's just say that Bon Bon was curious about that sitting pose...

:bulletgreen:Edit: Forget Gangnam Style, I bet 100 bits that Gummy is dancing to the Meco's Star Wars - Cantina Theme tune.

The idea for this comic begun when I saw this Standing Gummy Vector by ~Pirill-Poveniy, and I thought "This looks like that Charlie Brown Christmas Dance", so I decided to make a comic where I could put a Dancing Gummy.

That took a lot more time I had initially assumed, partially because I had to discard the initial Dancing-Gummy animation cycle, because it looked bad. I couldn't do a good-looking front-facing Gummy, so the dancing was awkward. Then I made one from scratch, and now it looks better (Imagine how was the first one...)

Then I thought that just a Dancing Gummy wasn't funny enough, so I decided to incorporate someone else doing something not-quite-normal, forbidden or taboo. I considered Big Macintosh with Smartypants, or Fluttershy, or Cheerilee; Rarity with Tom, or something unexpected. Then I thought of Lyra, sitting in a bench; then I though of Bon Bon siting in a Bench, implying that ponies and pets may behave distinctly when no one is watching.

This time, I just needed to sort 129 layers in order to make the animation (8 panels with 16 frames each + 1 panel without movement) but it was (relatively) easier this time, since I used a new method to combine them. It was tedious, anyway.

Attribution Time!
The vectors made by other people that I used in this comic are:
●"Comic - Background #1 - Hurricane Fluttershy" by *anbolanos91 as the background, duplicated and flipped so it could be wider (and modified some trees so that wouldn't look so obvious)
●"Vector Phonograph" by *MisterAibo, modified in order to make the disc spin, and added a tonearm (Fun Fact: A tunearm is seen only when somepony is starting the music)
●"Park Background" by =mandydax, but only the bench.
●"Bonbon cutie mark" by *The-Smiling-Pony for the Bon Bon vector
The vectors I made are:
●"Just Gummy Dancing"
●"Sitting Bon Bon Not yet uploaded

As an independent panel:

The GIF it's relatively small because it was Optimized, and since the only moving parts are just Gummy and a small part of the spinning disc. Each frame last 60ms.

The image should play well in most browsers, but if it doesn't, tell me, please.

Vectors created in Inkscape and animation in GIMP.

Feel free to correct the grammar, syntax, etc. Or point out glitches, or suggest music!

- Nopony will believe Gummy if he told anypony that Bon-Bon was sitting like Lyra. 
- Nopony will believe Bon-Bon if she told anypony that Gummy was dancing.
