Story/plot wise, it did have the quite common elements of having a public gathering, with someone on a stage pulling a cloth off of something, so didn't feel that unique. And what I guess was the punch-line at the end kinda fell flat, owning to the fact that I had no idea to Eadwacer was until you told me. Next time, you may want to use an extremely common name that just about everybody would know. Just because you remember an old Saxon's name, doesn't mean we will.
The animation was good, but during Don's speech, his arms moved too quickly, and they didn't always line-up with an emphasis point in the dialogue. Although I thought the "adventurer flashback" was done fairly well.
Was there any particular reason for it not filling the whole player? It doesn't appear to be an odd aspect ratio, and even then, at least two of the sides would be touching the edge.
I give it a "3", the setting was very similar to other videos, and the execution was good, but not without it's flaws.
