Thanks to his sister Jacky’s careless collecting, Wacky falls foul of a vengeful form of the Butterfly Effect in this topic winning Flipnote by Jake.

Created by Snapples this dramatic tableaux, entitled The Butterfly Effect, follows the passing of time, the turmoils of life, and great catastrophes, as seen through the compound eyes of its namesake.
This beautiful fluttering butterfly, created by Cosmirage, goes through a gamut of changing colors as it shows off its flamboyant wing patterns.
The use of the flip-function works very well here for keeping both the animation and the insect perfectly symmetrical.
jonah1 has been inspired by the false eye spots in butterfly wing patterns to come up with the surreal idea for this topic winner.
We love the way the eyes look furtively around when the wings open.
A cute little butterfly is too shy even to make eye contact, in this topic winning entry by Esmee♥
Animated with flicking eye movement, blushing cheeks, and pensive hands, the bashful character comes across perfectly.

M.V.s or Music-Video Flipnotes are just like Pop Videos on MTV, only done with Flipnote animation.
To make one, first choose your song and record it into a Flipnote Audio. Then create your animated video to accompany it.
Go with the rhythm, using anything from abstract and symbolic imagery, characters and lip-sync, glitz, glam, and sparkle to support and embellish your musical track.
Also, why not try cycling your MV! Find that perfectly timed frame to end on, and let the music and animation play in a continual loop.
It’s very rewarding.
We really love the way you're all so creative with these topics and look forward to seeing the Flipnotes you create for them.
Make sure to post your entries to the Weekly Topic channel Weekly Topic - Music Videos, MVs and the deadline for your entries is May 14th (12pm EST/4pm GMT).
We would also encourage you to add a description to your Flipnotes. This is your opportunity to explain any points of interest and specific details that we could feature in the topic winner reviews.
And don't forget, if you want a cool thumbnail picture on your Flipnote, whichever frame you save the Flipnote on, that will become the thumbnail. So choose your favorite frame for this, or add in a cool title page at the end, and save on that.
Keep on Flipnoting and the best of luck with your entries.
