Sticking with the theme for a second, here’s another video about an ape (though decidedly different from my last post). This time it’s a short ad from PETA advocating against using chimps in television and movies. It’s brutal, yes. But the best part of the video is that the incredible CG Chimp is both the character and the argument.
I must admit I am off my game lately. I’ve been too busy at work and missing a lot of great new videos. Case in point, Space Oddity. Also, BuzzFeed. Since when have they been pumping our regular original content? According to their BuzzFeedYellow YouTube channel, the answer is a month ago. But in that time, they have racked up a dozen or so videos with some serious views! My guess is this is in no small part to ZeFrank leading the video charge there. I’ve watched a few of BuzzFeed’s videos today and they’ve all been simple, targeted, popular, and mostly funny. My recommendations (all directly applicable to me): Why It’s Hard Out There For A Lefty, How to Piss Off Everyone in Your Office in 66 Seconds, Life In Your 20s Vs 30s, and Why Getting Into Shape Is The Worst.
Argentinian animators, 3dar, created this candy-colored job here about a monkey who is conflicted; torn between revenge at his home’s destruction, and extremely ambitious in the corporate world. He’s a mad monkey. And his ears never seem to touch his head.
Here’s a behind the scene video, for fun.
While it’s true the title and thumbnail kind of give it away, I can basically guarantee this is one of the best short treatises on cross-gender communication you’ll see today. Fact.
Two things that I am a sucker for: animation and Sci Fi movies. By combining these totally awesome genres, 1A4 Studios has become one of my new YouTube channels to watch. Also they keep things short, which I appreciate. Above is the latest in their Speedrun series. Previous episodes include Star Wars, the Matrix, and Back to the Future. All are equally as adorably animated and worth a watch.
The title of this video weirds me out a little, as does the name of the production company that made it (Betty wants in to what?). But the Australians behind this beautiful little gem can call things whatever they want if they’re going to produce profiles like this.
Seriously, guys — this is what the inside of my brain looks like. (The inside of my brain is TECHNICOLOR!)
