Christmas Day As Told By Your Favorite Hollywood Directors

I’m normally not one for the whole same story seven different ways thing, but I found this parody of Hollywood directors styles to be spot on. The Wes Anderson and Scorsese Christmas days made me giggle. So formulaic, so true!

A Car Made (Almost) Entirely Out Of Legos

…that runs on air! This is amazing. Now I know what I will be putting on my Christmas list (hint: more Legos).

Pug Reenacts The Movie Elf As Retold By a Young Boy

If you were thinking of snuggling up by the fire to watch your favorite holiday movies this weekend, you can save some time by watching this then skipping straight to the Muppet Christmas Carol (shameless plug for my personal favorite). Jackson a boy of an unknown albeit young age narrates the plot of Will Farrel’s magical holiday movie, Elf, while a cute pug (aided by handmade cardboard cutouts) reenact the scenes.   

Skiing the Abandoned Streets and Buildings of Detroit

First off, the whole concept of urban skiing is pretty bad ass. But, seeing for myself some of the more rundown spaces of a once thriving city was really shocking to me (as were the backflips). This video is a segment of a full length movie by Poor Boyz Productions so if you haven’t had enough of skiers hitting the bricks, you should check out more of their stuff.

Sesame Street Movie Parodies Kill Me With Cookie Monster

Whoever the 20-something social media strategist who convinced Sesame Street that this was an awesome idea, thank you. Because it is. Over the past year or so Sesame Street studios has been parodying popular movies and television shows while staying true to their roots and teaching children with (muppets..er…) monsters. Clever titles in this series include Cookies of the Caribbean, Birdwalk Empire, and Upside Downtown Abbey. One of the most popular and my personal favorite is The Hungry Games – Catching Fur.

Cardboard Butchers, Dancing Dolphins, and a Fat Frog

Professional Weirdo, Jimbo Matison hand-made this music video for his friends, the Bloodthirsty Butchers, a punk band from Japan. When their frontman, Hideki (Yoo) Yoshimura, passed away earlier this year, Jimbo dove into a tribute for the band in the form of a sweet, cardboard, stop-motion music video, complete with a lot of psychedelic weirdness, and a moment of silence for Yoo.

Tupac in black and white

Here’s this sweet, sad blank on blank animation of an interview with Tupac from 1994. Whatever you do, try not to think about the holographic Tupac when the man starts to talk about the Tupac machine.

How Does This Video Not Have A Million Billion Views?

Mashup + Cats + Eclectic Method… this is a recipe for success that clearly no one caught on to. Take note of it’s awesome because it truly is.

Blade Runner Depicted In Paint

This animation consists of 12,597 handmade aquarelle paintings, each painting is approximately 1,5*3cm in size. Together they form my 35 minute long paraphrase on the motion picture Blade Runner (1982) by Ridley Scott.

According to Anders Ramsell, the artist behind this beautifully executed homage, ‘Blade Runner – The Aquarelle Edition’ follows the original movie´s storyline but he took liberties to change things. “It was never my intent to make an exact version of the movie, that would fill no purpose. Instead I wanted to create a something different and never before seen — The Aquarelle Edition.”
